As time goes by, it’s normal for both men and women to notice signs of aging that don’t particularly line up with how youthful they feel in their approach to life. Fine lines and wrinkles that develop around the mouth, nose, and eyes are a natural result of skin losing both volume and elasticity with age. While these changes can be expected, the aesthetic results of age don’t have to simply be endured. While there are many wonderful and innovative face fillers on the cosmetic market for treating fine lines and wrinkles, Radiesse has emerged as a product of choice for many patients who are comfortable reversing the effects of wrinkles with an injection-based filler.
When it comes to treating facial wrinkles and fine lines, Radiesse stands out from the product line of injection skin treatments with its highly effective and successful results. Radiesse dermal fillers target deep wrinkles around the lips as well as skin that is loose around the eyes, visibly reducing the signs of aging after treatment. As the injection both fills and plumps the wrinkles, volume that has been lost is subtly restored creating a beautiful, smooth and natural look.
Patients who elect to use Radiesse face fillers to treat fine line and facial wrinkles do so with the added benefit of choosing a treatment that can be done in the comfort of a physician’s office. This minimally invasive and fairly painless procedure takes approximately 15-minutes total to perform depending on the number of sites to be treated during a session. A mild local anesthetic will be applied once the treatment areas are clearly marked to ensure a comfortable experience. The cosmetic physician performing the treatment will inject Radiesse using a fine-needle underneath the skin. Many patients choose to go the route of Radiesse because it is a non-toxic and non-allergenic approach to achieving a more youthful appearance. Similarly, Radiesse is a biocompatible gel that is manufactured with compounds that are also naturally found in the human body.
Actual Patient – Individual Results May Vary
Patients looking for a long-term solution to fighting wrinkles and fine lines are usually thrilled to learn that Radiesse dermal fillers can last up to two years before replacement injections are required. As with many face fillers, patients can expect to see visible results immediately after treatment with many reporting nothing more than some minor swelling, redness, and irritation at the site of injection. Many physicians are happy to write a prescription for a pain reliever when dealing with this type of side effect. Similarly, patients are encouraged to apply ice packs to the injection sites following treatment to reduce the chances of swelling. After treatment, patients are able to resume their normal, everyday activities but are encouraged to avoid over-exposure to sunlight for 24 hours after the procedure has been completed.
Radiesse face and lip fillers do not require a patient to undergo general anesthesia, spend any time in the hospital or endure a long recovery period, making this option an extremely safe solution to treating fine lines and wrinkles. The long-lasting effects of Radiesse mean fewer trips to the doctor to have replacement fillers injected, reducing the risk of site irritation even further. Quick, efficient and delivering successful results makes Radiesse injections a wonderful option for many patients hoping to achieve a more youthful appearance without facing health risks.
The cost of Radiesse face and lip fillers will vary from patient to patient and the final price tag is very much dependent on the areas to be treated and how often a patient will need to come back for replacement fillers to maintain the desired final look. A single syringe of the product usually costs around $600-700. The cost may be less if multiple syringes are used.
