Radiesse® “Rejuvenate your skin with the filler proven to stimulate collagen production”

radiesse before treatment

Radiesse® is a filler that works to eliminate wrinkles by replenishing lost volume. As you age, collagen begins to break down. This loss results in wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and facial lines and folds. The advantage points of using Radiesse® include the stimulation of collagen production, instant wrinkle correction, results that can last up to two years, and a more comfortable approach to injections that ease the anxiety and pain. The treatment time is minimal, from five to fifteen minutes.

Radiesse® is generally used around the nose and mouth working to tackle wrinkles and skin folds. Ideal patients are men and women, typically between 35 and 60, and are seeking immediate results. It has been shown that about 80% of improvements can be seen right after treatment, with final results in a week. The treatment involves injecting a compound of calcium hydroxyl apatite micro spheres (Calcium and Phosphate ions that are naturally produced in the body) that is in a carboxymethylcellulose gel (an organic compound of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, glycerin, and sterile water). The connective tissue forms around the micro spheres and acts as a filler.

Radiesse® is a great way to look younger without invasive surgery. Due to the ability to treat smile lines, marionette lines, oral commissure, and pre-jowl lines, Radiesse® is providing in an injection what used to take some form of surgery. The minimal side effects can include some bruising, redness, and swelling. These should subside within a couple days. It is recommended to cover up from sun exposure after treatment. With a long lasting duration of results, only minor touchups may be needed over a couple years time.
