As we age, the tissues of the face slowly lose elasticity, no longer clearly defining our features. The features become sharp and sunken; the healthy fullness is lost.
The tired, unhealthy, ‘hollow’ appearance that results cannot be repaired with the use of creams or lotions, nor can it be concealed with makeup; a medical intervention will be required to restore youthful-looking skin.
Radiesse is a dermal filler, composed of a calcium-based gel, designed to restore lost facial contours. Radiesse creates a structural frame for the lower layers of facial tissues, smoothing the skin, while at the same time, encouraging the body’s natural production of collagen. With Radiesse, the foundation of the skin is rebuilt and reinforced, providing long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
Radiesse is excellent at adding volume and shape to the features, bringing symmetry and balance to the face. The popular dermal filler is ideal for reducing dark hollows under the eyes, creating more prominent cheek bones, filling in deep facial creases, and creating a more prominent chin or jawline. *
Who is a good candidate for Radiesse?
Patients looking to improve their aging appearance, but who are not yet ready for an invasive procedure, can discover the benefits of Radiesse injections. Healthy men and women, looking to replenish lost facial volume can make excellent candidates for a treatment with Radiesse. *
How is Radiesse applied?
A treatment with Radiesse takes less than an hour in the office. To maximize a patient’s comfort level, a local anesthetic or dental block will be administered prior to treatment. Using a very thin needle, Radiesse is placed under predetermined areas of the skin.
Radiesse requires no downtime. Immediately after treatment, patients may experience slight redness and swelling at the injection site. Although this resolves quickly, some patients prefer to resume work or school after these symptoms diminish. There are no restrictions after a Radiesse treatment, so vigorous exercise can be resumed that day.
The benefits of Radiesse can be appreciated immediately after a treatment. Additionally, as a natural result of the increased Collagen production, the appearance will continue to improve over the following months. The benefits of Radiesse will last between 18 and 24 months, although many patients will not require a repeat treatment for over two years.
