Radiesse® is an FDA-approved, dermal filler that is used by countless people to reduce the appearance of facial folds, fine lines, and wrinkles.
It is a relatively non-invasive alternative to face lift procedures and other anti-aging treatments that involve cutting and tissue removal.
If you have crow’s feet, laugh lines, frown lines and other visible signs of aging, Radiesse® could be the perfect solution for you.
How Radiesse® Works
Radiesse® is a gel-like solution that contains small particles or microspheres. These particles are comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally-occurring substance in the body.
This eliminates the need for allergy testing and significantly reduces the risk of adverse reactions.
By injecting Radiesse® into targeted areas across the face, it is possible to successfully address the loss of facial fullness that commonly occurs as the result of decreased collagen production and diminished skin elasticity.
Radiesse® can restore a plump, youthful look while minimizing the appearance of creases, wrinkles, and folds.
Given that Radiesse® is a relatively non-invasive, outpatient procedure that can be completed in minutes, it is ideal for patients seeking anti-aging solutions that do not require incisions, tissue removal or other high-risk measures.
Radiesse® is commonly used as an alternative to implant procedures due to its ability to restore facial fullness and eliminate laugh lines, marionette lines, and other facial wrinkles.
When used for anti-aging purposes, this filler may be suited to patients between the ages of 35 and 60 who are experiencing mild to moderate facial wrinkling or volume loss.
What to Expect During Your Radiesse® Treatment
Radiesse® is a fast, in-patient procedure that is typically performed under local anesthesia.
During your Radiesse® treatment, the provider will select several, strategic injection points across your face according to your cosmetic goals and the location and severity of your issues.
While the risks of adverse reaction after a Radiesse® procedure are minimal due to its natural composition, it is not uncommon for mild swelling to occur.
Radiesse® procedures do not entail any extensive recovery time. In most instances, people may be advised to avoid activities that require dramatic movements of the facial muscles for up to 48 hours.
The results of the procedure will be visible right away, but additional improvements are recognized after one week.
