Collagen Stimulation Therapy

Radiesse is a powerful, FDA approved dermal filler injection to improve smile lines, volumize thinning cheeks, strengthen the jawline, and smooth the hands. Now Dr. Sundin at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery offers Hyperdilute Radiesse, an innovative, diluted formulation of Radiesse to create skin rejuvenation in a larger surface area.

This unique collagen stimulation therapy allows for long lasting and more natural looking results as it supports the generation of new collagen fibers and gradually strengthens the skin structure. The treatment is quick and completely non-surgical and can be used to great effect in areas, such as the face, neck, and décolletage.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides collagen stimulation therapy with Hyperdilute Radiesse to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and surrounding communities.

How does Collagen Stimulation Therapy Work?

Collagen is the primary structural protein within the skin tissue, which provides it the support to remain firm, taut, and smooth. As you age, the natural collagen starts getting depleted, resulting in loose or sagging skin and the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and skin folds.

Hyperdilute Radiesse works as an excellent collagen bio-stimulator in the affected areas. Once the treatment provider injects the hyperdiluted filler into the deeper skin tissue, it will trigger the natural process of collagen generation. The new collagen and elastin fibers will add volume and support to the skin for a tighter, smoother, and rejuvenated skin appearance.

Results with Hyperdilute Radiesse Injectable

Depending on the extent of dilution applied, Hyperdilute Radiesse will have a relatively mild skin volumizing effect. In the beginning, it will work like a gel mesh to hold the skin tissue more firmly, but its primary role will be to act as a collagen stimulator from within to tighten the loose skin and improve its texture and tone.

Hyperdilute Radiesse will support the regenerative process where the elastin and collagen production has slowed down due to aging or has been damaged due to sun exposure. This collagen stimulation therapy is highly effective in reducing skin laxity in the face, neck and décolletage. Skin crepiness and fine lines are diminished in the treated sites and pliability and elasticity are significantly improved.

Studies have shown that Dilute Radiesse improved dermal thickening by up to 50 percent within three months, and most of the patients can maintain the results for at least 18 months or more. In addition, Dilute Radiesse also works effective to treat stubborn cellulite appearance to reduce the unsightly dimpling effect in the buttocks and thighs.

CaHA – A Powerful Active Ingredient in Dilute Radiesse

Hyperdilute Radiesse contains micro crystals of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA), which work actively to produce fresh collagen and elastin fibers. Compared to most other dermal filler treatments this innovative collagen stimulation therapy works more effectively because of its ability to trigger greater fibroblasts for skin thickness, volume, and strength.

Cosmetic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and nearby areas for collagen stimulation therapy with Hyperdilute Radiesse.
