Radiesse

Time goes by so fast and before you know it, you start seeing fine lines and saggy skin. Everyone goes through it, yet everyone wants to age gracefully. As we age, we start to lose collagen in our skin, which results in loss of volume. Leading to visible aging signs such as wrinkles and fine lines. While no one can escape these effects, ultimately, what really matters is how to deal with the visible signs of aging. Radiesse is an anti-wrinkle treatment that not only fills out your fine lines and wrinkles but also helps the body to naturally reverse the signs of aging. The Radiesse® volumizing filler is a high-end dermal filler treatment that prevents skin from sagging. Radiesse acts as a scaffold under the skin to give volume in the cheeks, mouth, neck areas and more. Not only does it define deep wrinkles, hollows, and folds in just minutes, it also stimulates the production of collagen. This is done by enabling the skin to counter the effects of aging naturally. Collagen is the main substance that gives youthful skin its volume, liveness, and strength.

Radiesse® different from other fillers?

Radiesse® volumizing filler is different from the other “temporary” fine line fillers because it is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres, which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. Calcium is a mineral naturally found in your body, so your body should naturally absorb the filler.

Radiesse® Treatment

Before treatment, it is recommended to refrain from taking any anti-inflammatory drugs such as: Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, aspirin, or high doses of Vitamin E one week prior to treatment. This will reduce the possible side effects of bruising and/or swelling in the treated area(s). The consumption of alcoholic beverages prior to treatment can increase the chances of bruising and/or swelling. It is highly important that you are not pregnant or breastfeeding during this treatment.

The process sometimes involves a numbing cream and/or local anesthetic injections, and ice packs post treatment. Many of the fillers also come mixed with numbing medication for enhanced patient comfort. However, the discomfort level is minimal to mild. Radiesse is injected into the skin using a small needle, to soften folds, reduce wrinkles, add volume to lift the skin, and sometimes into the face and hands.

Please avoid touching the treated area within 6 hours of treatment so you do not accidentally injure your skin. After that, the area can be gently washed with soap and water. Until there is no redness or swelling, avoid exposure of the treated area to intense heat or extremely cold weather. Most patients see results shortly after treatment. Swelling, redness, and tenderness will occur after your treatment and usually resolves the first 2-3 days. Lastly, avoid taking aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications for one week after treatment. These agents may increase the risk of bruising and swelling in the treated area. Your provider will recommend follow up appointments or treatments according to your desired result.

Follow up treatments should be scheduled usually every six months. Consistent repeated treatments will produce the best resolution of wrinkles.
