Preserving your youthful appearance can be a daunting task. As time marches on, the effects of aging are relentless, constantly chiseling away at our facial features with wrinkles, bony landmarks, nasolabial folds, thin lips, and deep creases. These signs of aging can seriously undermine your confidence, as they can leave you looking much older than you may feel. Fortunately, there is Radiesse®.
Radiesse is FDA approved to help restore facial volume and correct many different kinds of aging issues of the face. Injectable fillers such as Radiesse are becoming increasingly popular as options for people who are looking to fight the signs of aging but aren’t looking for the drastic changes that may come with cosmetic surgery. If you are concerned about aging signs such as glabellar lines, deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, peri-oral lip lines, and other wrinkles, then Radiesse could be the solution for you.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse is an injectable subdermal filler made of a compound called synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite. Radiesse is injected into the skin and acts to replace lost structure and volume. The calcium hydroxylapatite provides an instant volumizing effect. It also has long-term benefits, stimulating the growth rate of natural collagen. This increased collagen growth continues for a few months after your initial treatment, providing more improvement to skin texture. Over time, Radiesse is absorbed into the body.
How Soon Can I Expect Results, and How Long Will the Results Last?
Once injected, Radiesse has an instant volumizing effect that is visible. The volumizing effect can soften wrinkles, creases, and lines. Radiesse also possesses long-term benefits for your skin, as it helps boost your natural collagen production. The benefits of Radiesse have been shown in many clinical trials to last a year or more.
Is Radiesse Safe?
Radiesse is FDA approved, and the injection is mixed with lidocaine to reduce pain during injection. Radiesse is given to hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide. Radiesse has been clinically tested and has a low rate of side effects.
How Is a Radiesse Treatment Performed?
Radiesse is an injectable treatment and is administered by a trained professional in our office. Local anesthesia is available to ensure the patient’s comfort during the injection procedure, which varies in length depending on the number of injections. Patients are able to return to their normal activities after their treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
One of the most appealing aspects of Radiesse is that it can achieve long-term results. Many patients only need one procedure, although some may benefit from a touch-up treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any injectable treatment, there is potential for irritation, swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the injection area. These side effects are typically short-lived and go away on their own.
Is Radiesse Permanent?
The benefits of Radiesse are long-lasting but not permanent. Typically, the treatment last about a year as the calcium-based material is broken down by the body and absorbed naturally and safely.
