Do you often look at the mirror and wonder to yourself “where has the time gone?” This is a common issue that many people deal with as they grow older, but thanks to innovative cosmetic treatments, this is a problem that you don’t have to deal with any longer.
The Radiesse Treatment
Radiesse is a dermal filler designed to give you a youthful look by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The microspheres embedded in the filler are known for their amazing ability to add volume.
Radiesse is composed of the highly effective Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. It is made up of a safe synthetic material that can be safely absorbed in one’s body. A smaller amount 30% to be exact is required for Radiesse treatment. It gives a smoother finish and is also more cost-effective.
The Components of the Radiesse Treatment
The microspheres are a calcium gel that is suspended in a water-based gel. The calcium based microspheres are similar to that found in our body. In most cases, the filler is safe and does not require you to be tested for allergies. The microspheres will be absorbed into the body and facilitate improved collagen production.
How Does Radiesse Work on the Skin?
The volumizing property of the microspheres present in Radiesse can help improve facial volume, giving you a more youthful and beautiful look. As it is made up of components naturally present in the human body, it is readily absorbed and helps to stimulate the production of collagen naturally. The results provided by the Radiesse treatment are long-lasting and beautiful.
Radiesse is ideal for treating:
• Marionette lines and smile lines
• Oral commissure
• Pre-jowl fold
• Chin wrinkles
These cosmetic issues can severely alter your appearance, making your look much older.
What to Expect During the Radiesse Treatment
Your doctor will pinpoint the best areas for injection and proceed with injecting the Radiesse solution. The filler is usually mixed with an anesthetic agent called lidocaine to help ease any potential discomfort. It is injected through a small needle. The treatment is quick and you won’t have to worry about going through any lengthy recovery times. You may experience some redness, swelling, or itching, but this is temporary and expected to subside soon after the treatment is completed.
The Results of the Radiesse Treatment
The results provided by the treatment are immediate. It replenishes the skin’s volume to help make it appear smoother. The results may last for a year or more. You will need to follow your doctor’s orders in order to maintain the best results.
