Pump Up the Volume with Radiesse
January 2, 2017
Dermal fillers provide a safe, easy and relatively non-invasive way to minimize or even eliminate some of the most noticeable signs of aging. As people grow older, their natural collagen production declines and the skin structure begins to break down. This often results in deep creases along the nasolabial folds, hollows around or under the eyes and a visibly sunken appearance at the cheeks. Radiesse® is an FDA-approved filler material that can quickly fill these areas out. Best of all, the treatments are simple and do not entail any incisions, tissue removal or significant recovery times.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is largely comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. CaHA is naturally-occurring within the bones and teeth of humans. As such, Radiesse® is unlikely to cause any serious allergic reactions. In fact, patients do not typically need to be tested for allergic reactions before having these injections performed. This popular dermal filler is free of animal proteins.
Why Choose Radiesse®?
Like all other dermal fillers, this treatment provides a simple, seamless solution to deep facial creases, hollows and sagging. This special gel can fill in wrinkles along the nasolabial folds and across other areas that are showing signs of significant volume loss. It is an incredibly effective alternative to far more invasive facelift procedures and entails a comparably minimal amount of risk. The injections do not entail any serious after-effects or prolonged recovery periods.
One factor that makes Radiesse® a standout product among other popular dermal fillers is the long-lasting results it provides. Given that it is largely comprised of the naturally-occurring CaHA, it is eventually recognized and absorbed by the body. However, while some natural fillers last just six months or so, many people have reported Radiesse® injections lasting up to one year or longer.
What to Expect During and After Your Treatment
Radiesse® is FDA-approved for use in conjunction with lidocaine. By using a mixture of the solution and lidocaine, our provider can significantly minimize your discomfort both during and after treatment.
During the treatment session, the solution is skillfully injected into the areas to be treated. You can immediately resume your normal activities after your injections, and will find that no special aftercare is required. The results of these injections can be immediate; however, the full effects of this product may take several days or even weeks to manifest.
