Radiesse is made from Calcium Hydroxylapatite and is perfect for use on deep facial folds and wrinkles. It is longer lasting than many other treatments lasting up to about 24 months as it can help to body to naturally simulate its own collagen.
How it works…
As the aging process takes over, it is common for our faces to form wrinkles, especially around the eye, between the eyebrows and furrows on the forehead. Injectable substances such as Radiesse are quicker than surgery and much less intrusive or painful. It allows clients to have the procedure done and then return straight back into their everyday life.
Radiesse is a semipermanent dermal filler and is especially effective at filling out the deep wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth, and to also add contours to the face which may have lost its shape – such as in the cheek area and the jaw line. It generally isn’t recommended to use Radiesse in the lips. What sets Radiesse apart is that good cosmetic surgeons such as Dr Kaplan and Dr Yee can use it to not only fill certain areas, but also to stimulate the growth of new collagen – the protein which gives your skin the elasticity and smoothness that keeps you young and youthful looking.
The procedure of injecting Radiesse can take up to 15 minutes, and clients are usually free to return home within minutes of the treatment being administered. A few injection points will be identified in the areas of your face that are requiring filling, and these points will be cleaned to help to avoid infection. The Radiesse is then injected under the skin, and hey presto! You are on your way to a young and youthful looking skin.
After about a week, the results will be fully evident and can last for a number of months. There may be a little bruising and maybe some swelling, but there shouldn’t be any effect that prevents you from doing anything in everyday life.
You might feel the need to return every now and again for a touch up in certain areas, but the Radiesse in general is due to last between 6 and 24 months.
Who Shouldn’t Receive Radiesse?
The average Radiesse client is between 35 and 60 years old, but doctors don’t recommend having treatment with Radiesse if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant as a precaution. The effect of dermal fillers such as Radiesse isn’t clear on unborn and new-born babies.
It is also the case that pregnancy stimulates blood circulation and increases the volume of blood; this makes the use of the dermal filler inappropriate.
