Dermal fillers have been around a long time, but the technology continues to improve year after year. Our clients have been thrilled with the results from Radiesse – one of our most popular treatments. This FDA approved injectable filler has some advantages over other types of dermal fillers, which we will explore here.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a type of dermal filler used to treat common signs of aging and skin issues like:
- Nasolabial folds (the crease that runs between the nose and the mouth)
- Volume loss
- Lack of jawline or nose definition
- Acne scarring
- Surgical scarring
Radiesse is a calcium hydroxyapatite based filler and utilizes tiny bone shaped spheres suspended in a carboxymethylcellulose gel. This nontoxic and hypoallergenic injectable contains components that are naturally found in the body, which means it is well tolerated by most people.
What Are The Benefits?
Clients love Radiesse because of the long-lasting results – often 18 months and beyond. Most other dermal fillers last 6-12 months. While no filler lasts a lifetime, Radiesse offers value that is unmatched. A single syringe treats most of the common skin issues, and you won’t need to keep coming back several times a year. In addition, the unique structure of Radiesse allows it to be molded and used to create contours and definition in the face. In many cases, it is a great alternative to facial implants. Radiesse saves you time and money!
What Is Recovery Like?
After a quick 15 minute treatment, you’ll see immediate results. Your skin will continue to improve over the next week. During that time, you may experience some light swelling, redness, and itching which will subside. Minimize sun exposure and strenuous activity, but otherwise you should be able to return to your normal routine after treatment. Enjoy your rejuvenated appearance for up to two years, in some cases, before needing repeat treatment.
Radiesse has proven to be very effective in tackling many of our clients’ issues with long lasting, natural results. We know that considering dermal filler or any other skin procedure is a serious decision, which is why we always offer free consultations. Our knowledgeable staff will discuss your skincare goals with you and recommend the best treatment plan to achieve the results you desire.
