There are many of us who, when we look in the mirror, we may not like what we see, especially those signs of aging. You may be noticing an increase in the wrinkles around your mouth and eyes, and these may make you feel less than youthful. These signs of aging are caused when the skin loses elasticity and volume, causing those pesky lines and wrinkles. Luckily, a Radiesse injection can help you overcome those signs of aging, quickly and easily.
Radiesse is a volumizing filler that can help replace lost volume. It can also help increase collagen production. It is considered non-toxic and non-allergenic, and provides long-last results. Radiesse is comprised of a compound of hydroxylapatite microsphere in a gel base. The gel base actually gets absorbed into your body, leaving the new collagen in its place.
Radiesse can be used to treat:
Marionette lines — those lines that happen on the corners of your mouth
Depressions in the skin
Facial volume loss
In addition to treating age signs in the facial area, a Radiesse injection can also be used to provide volume to hands — again to fight the signs of aging.
Radiesse injections are done painlessly during a 15–minute procedure in our office and requires only a mild local anesthetic. Radiesse’s top five benefits include:
• Non–toxic — not harmful to the body
• Non–allergenic — provokes no allergic reactions
• Biocompatible – Radiesse gel contains compounds naturally found in our bodies
• Long-lasting — Radiesse lasts up to two years between treatments
• Near immediate results
Most patients who receive Radiesse injections will experience little to no downtime, meaning you can return to your regular routine almost immediately. As we said, there are very few side effects, although some may have some swelling at the injection site, which will usually resolve itself after a couple of days. You will see near-immediate results right after the procedure and you will continue to see additional improvements over the next few months.
