What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an FDA-approved cosmetic filler for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Radiesse is a biocompatible injectable filler that works by immediately restoring facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging. Radiesse is injected through a small needle and placed underneath the skin. Once injected, the filler will instantly add volume under the skin over time. Additionally, it will stimulate your body’s own production of natural collagen. This boost of collagen production will help maintain a youthful looking complexion.
- Radiesse has Calcium Hydroxyapatites (CaHA) in the gel injection, which is a highly nutritional mineral source for our bodies.
- Immediately after injections, it stimulates our body’s natural collagen production to correct and volumize our skin.
- Over time, the gel will be absorbed into our body and metabolized leaving only our own natural collagens.
- FDA-approved cosmetic procedure
- Clinically proven to last a year or more
- Will stimulate your body’s natural collagen production
- The injection will immediately replenish lost facial volume
For the first three months after the treatment, Radiesse will act as a cosmetic filler by plumping up the skin to diminish the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. After that, Radiesse will begin to stimulate our body’s natural collagen production. What that essentially means is that Radiesse not only temporarily reduces wrinkles and fine lines but also helps prevent them in the long run.
If you’re interested in a long-lasting natural look while immediately smoothing out your wrinkles, then Radiessemay be the solution for you.
What can you expect during the procedure?
The Radiesse injections are administered through a safe and simple procedure. Anesthetic is used to numb the injection site prior to treatment. The injection will occur beneath the skin under the dermis. The entire treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes depending on the extent of the treatment.
What can you expect after the procedure?
After your treatment, you can expect minimal swelling which will subside in approximately 24 to 36 hours. This procedure requires little to no downtime and normal activities can be resumed immediately, however, it is advised to avoid excessive sun exposure.
How long will the results last?
Radiesse results are both instant and long-lasting. Patients can expect to see results of their Radiesse treatment immediately. Since Radiesse works below the skin’s surface by stimulating the production of collagen and tissue regeneration, the results can last up to 2 years.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for Radiesse are those showing obvious signs of facial aging. Typically speaking, an ideal candidate are those seeking treatment for facial wrinkles such as smile lines and/or marionette lines to name a few.
Radiesse is a cosmetic filler that is made of natural substances that occur in our bodies which means no allergy testing is required.
