Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a synthetic injectable filler that is able to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and scars on the skin by augmenting its natural collagen supply from within. It is made up of microspheres that are suspended in a biocompatible gel medium that makes it convenient for administration and produces fewer side effects and allergic reactions compared to other formulations available in the market. It can be used to treat several areas of the body including the nasolabial folds, perioral lines, the lips, depressed scars, and oral commissures. Radiesse has also been considered one of the best solutions for eliminating facial lines and creases because of its ability to replace lost skin structure by providing it with the necessary lift and volume it needs to reduce the signs of aging. It essentially acts as the skin’s scaffold that simultaneously augments structure and stimulates the production of natural collagen from within.
What are the advantages of using Radiesse?
Radiesse has a very high satisfaction rate from patients due to the fact that it is safe, convenient, and quick. It is a leading dermal filler because it is able to immediately replace lost volume and progressively stimulate the production of collagen for longer-lasting results. Additionally, its lidocaine content has reduced discomfort significantly for many patients.
How does it work?
Radiesse is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel. As soon as the formulation is injected into the trouble areas, it is able to create immediate volume under the skin that basically props up the creases and folds that have formed on the skin overtime. As the gel matrix of the Radiesse is assimilated by the body, the costume hydroxylapatite microspheres are left behind and continue to stimulate the production of the body’s own natural collagen to sustain the initial results obtained with Radiesse.
What happens during the administration of Radiesse?
Doctors usually administer local anesthesia prior to the Radiesse injections to minimize patient discomfort during the procedure. Then, the necessary amounts of Radiesse will be injected into the affected areas. After the procedure, patients will normally experience some swelling and bruising at the site of injection, but these should disappear within a few days.
What are the results?
Immediately after the injection of Radiesse, the patient will begin to notice the difference. The younger looking effects obtained with this formulation can last for several months or years and can be repeated if the patient desires to do so.
