Some of the common signs of aging are the development of moderate to deep wrinkles and lines around the sides of the mouth. You can also develop folds on either side of your lower face that occur because of the loss of facial volume that leads to sagging. One way to reverse these common signs of aging is by getting injections of RADIESSE® into those problem areas. RADIESSE® injections can fill in moderate to deep wrinkles and add plumpness so that you can have a natural-looking, youthful appearance.
What is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is an injectable dermal filler that is FDA-approved to treat moderate to deep wrinkles and to add plumpness. It can be used to add fullness to the nasolabial lines that form folds running from the sides of your nose to your mouth and to fill in deep wrinkles at the corners of your mouth and lower face. Finally, RADIESSE® can add fullness to the skin that is sagging on either side of your chin.
What is RADIESSE® made out of?
RADIESSE® is made up of a gel in which microspheres of calcium are suspended. The calcium microspheres that are used in RADIESSE® are similar to the calcium that is naturally found in your body.
How does RADIESSE® work?
RADIESSE® is injected under the skin beneath moderate to deep wrinkles or folds. It plumps the area to produce natural-looking results. The calcium microspheres cause you to produce more collagen. Over time, your body will absorb the calcium microspheres and the gel while leaving the collagen that has been formed behind. This leaves you with results that are long-lasting and natural in appearance.
What can you expect from a treatment with RADIESSE®?
Your treatment with RADIESSE® will take around 30 minutes and can be completed during your lunch hour. RADIESSE® is premixed with Lidocaine to lessen your discomfort during your treatment. Following your injections of RADIESSE®, the results will be immediate. You can expect to enjoy your results for up to a year or more before you need further injections.
