Radiesse is a dermal filler that smooths wrinkles and folds in the face and can provide a more youthful appearance to hands. Radiesse is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration. One of the primary components of the filler is calcium which encourages the growth of new collagen which helps restore a youthful and glowing face and plumps the hands after injection. It is an excellent alternative to plastic surgery.
What is Radiesse made from?
The main ingredient that makes up Radiesse is Calcium Hydroxylapatite; a substance that is naturally found in human teeth and bones. It is injected as a liquid gel. Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen and a more youthful appearance in your face and/or hands
So many applications
Radiesse is used to treat smile lines, marionette lines, corners of the mouth, chin wrinkles and brow creases, and create cheekbones. It is also one of the dermal fillers proven to immediately restore volume loss in the back of hands for smooth, natural-looking results that won’t give away your age.
It is a fantastic product that works little miracles. The cosmetic treatment has low risk and long lasting results compared to other types of aesthetics. We use Radiesse every day and have had no major problems (even minor problems are rare).
The results come immediately after the injection, but continue to improve over time. 85% of Radiesse users in a study reported that their skin continued to improve even after six months. Radiesse does not create permanent effects but it can last up to a year or more in many patients.
Don’t let the needle scare you; RADIESSE has lidocaine in the injected gel to minimize discomfort, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the immediate and long-lasting results.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare, but can include swelling, lumpiness, and itchiness around the injected area. They should disappear within two days.
Before the injection, the anti-wrinkle office should fully disclose all the information on side effects, desirable outcomes, and long-term effects. It is advisable to combine Radiesse with natural anti-aging skin care products for optimum and fast results..
When will I see results?
You will see immediate results; however many specialists say to wait for a week or more before judging the final result. This period will allow adjustment for any swelling to settle down so you will see the results more evenly. Over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen.
This is a work of art, so be patient for the final result.
How long with the results last?
As with all injectable solutions, the effects of the treatment do eventually wear off. The good news, however, is that Radiesse usually lasts longer than Juvederm or Restylane.
The costs and the ease of treatment make Radiesse an excellent alternative to surgery, and the results will have you mirror gazing at a more youthful you for a long time.
