Replenishing lost volume and providing lift are two keys to diminishing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. There are two physical characteristics that dictate the ability of injectable fillers to provide volume and lift: viscosity and elasticity (G’).
The Viscosity and Elasticity were measured by deformation oscillation using a plate and plate geometry. Measurements were taken at 0.7 Hz because it was considered physiologically relevant for common skin stressors.
Measures the ability of a filler to withstand a force that is applied to it and not spread or splay into the surrounding tissue. As seen in the chart below, RADIESSE® shows the highest resistance to spreading when compared to other dermal fillers.9
RADIESSE® Provides Higher Viscosity Compared to HA Based Fillers9
The effects of the high viscosity of RADIESSE include:
- Remains in the place it is injected and will not spread or splay into the surrounding tissue
- Enables the injector to visualize the result immediately after injection
Measures the ability of a filler to push back against a force that is applied to it and provide lift. RADIESSE proves to withstand the most force, and is designed to have superior lifting capacity when compared to other dermal fillers.9
RADIESSE® Provides Higher Elasticity Compared to HA Based Fillers9*
The benefits of the high elasticity (G’) of RADIESSE include:
- Counteracts forces that cause an aged look, like gravity or skin laxity
- Provides lift and support
In this study, RADIESSE® demonstrated a higher viscosity and elasticity compared to HA based fillers tested.*†
