Wrinkles and fine lines are aesthetic problems that everyone faces at some point in their lives. These signs of aging can demotivate a person and cause them to suffer from a severe lack of confidence, especially when they are seen early in life. 

Unfortunately, aging skin is a natural part of life, but there are things you can do to help fight back these signs of aging and achieve a youthful look that lasts much longer. 

Using skin-care products and practicing a good skin care routine can delay these signs of aging, but once they appear, there is no need for any drastic measures. Radiesse is the key to getting rid of that wrinkle problem.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a cosmetic skin treatment designed to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose. It can help enhance volume in specific areas of your face and fill in sunken areas that cause you to look older.

It is a volumizing dermal filler used to fill out deep wrinkles and improves contours in areas of the face that have lost their shape, such as the cheeks and jawline. It is made of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) suspended in a gel. CaHa is similar to the calcium found in the teeth and bones. It contains ions of phosphate and calcium that naturally occur in the body.

CaHa stimulates the body’s natural collagen, which is a naturally occurring protein found in large amounts, but the body’s ability to produce it as you get older is much lower. It is fibrous in nature and gives structure to the bone, muscles, skin, and other connective tissues. It is widely used in dermal fillers to treat aging skin. 

How Does Radiesse Work?

Radiesse is FDA-approved to even out moderate to smooth wrinkles and folds like nasolabial folds. It is injected through a small needle into specific areas based on your individual needs. The filler works to add volume under the skin. Over time, it stimulates the body’s natural collagen which allows the skin to produce fillers of its own. Eventually, CaHa is absorbed back into the body, leaving the collagen in place. 

The Benefits of Using Radiesse

Following are the benefits of Radiesse:

  • The results of the procedure are visible immediately.
  • Radiesse replenishes lost volume.
  • The Radiesse gel is absorbed into the body. The body metabolizes the CaHa and leaves only the collagen behind.
  • You can return to your normal daily activities quickly.
  • It is clinically proven to last a year or more.
  • It is FDA-approved to be mixed with lidocaine. Lidocaine is an anesthetic used to reduce injection-related pain.

The Radiesse Procedure

The Radiesse procedure takes no more than 15 minutes. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia and may use lidocaine to ease any discomfort caused. 

Your doctor will determine the area that needs to be treated as well as the amount of filler needed based on your desired outcome and her own assessment of your skin. The number of injections depends on the severity of the wrinkles to be treated. 

Radiesse injections are used to treat wrinkles and folds on the face and bring back volume in the hands. It can also be used to treat deep scars. Radiesse not only fills in laugh lines, but also brings back that youthful smile you’ve been longing for..
