Knee Rejuvenation with Dermal Fillers in Vancouver

Our necks, hands, and even our KNEES are now among the unmistakable signs of ageing, not just our faces. Yes, the additional skin above the knees that enables us to bend them makes them vulnerable to early signs of ageing. This, together with the constant motion our knees experience and the normal deterioration of collagen, can all be factors in the laxity of our knee skin. Compounding this, genetics, weight gain or decrease, and other relevant elements also take their toll. As a result, knee rejuvenation is becoming increasingly popular.

As the knees age, the following changes can occur:

  • Pigmentation / sun damage
  • Aging of Skin
  • Knee wrinkles
  • Sagging skin on knees

More and more people are seeking non-surgical options to help improve the skin in this area.
Both Sculptra (poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA) and Radiesse (calcium hydroxylapatite) are regarded as “biostimulators” since they encourage the production of collagen in our bodies, and they help to tighten and enhance the quality of skin. Collagen is a key structural component under the skin that provides volume, keeping skin looking youthful. Over time, our bodies make less collagen and our skin loses its elasticity and volume.

Radiesse is a substantially thicker dermal filler that is more like a paste and offers both an instant boost in lift and long-term plumping thanks to the synthesis of collagen. The effects of Sculptra, a more liquid-like product that is absorbed by the body, are not as apparent immediately. It may take up to six weeks for the collagen boost to start working and to show results. But because both products increase collagen formation, they are excellent knee treatments. You may just find the results from Sculptra and Radiesse are just what you are looking for!

Our injectors may hyperdilute Radiesse by adding saline or lidocaine as this helps to increase the product’s spreadability and stimulate more types of collagen production. On occasion it may be necessary to schedule secondary treatments to be able to see the results you hope for. You can expect results to last between 2-5 years!
