As we get older, the passage of time can significantly affect our skin, causing thinning and losing natural volume not just in our faces but all over the body. Radiesse provides an extra layer of defense against this unwelcome change, restoring lost volume to give you an instant youthful look that could last up to two years. If you’re feeling insecure about changes in your appearance as you age, Radiesse can help, giving you back renewed confidence in your looks.
At Bayside Medspa in Norfolk, VA, we offer Radiesse as a safe and reliable choice for aesthetic rejuvenation. Radiesse is a safe, effective, and reliable dermal filler that reduces wrinkles and facial lines. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will assess your aesthetic goals and recommend Radiesse as the ideal choice for your desired outcomes.
What Is Radiesse and What Does It Do?
Radiesse is a popular dermal filler of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Radiesse replaces lost collagen at injection sites, the key to youthful skin texture and quality.
But it doesn’t stop there. Radiesse stimulates your body’s production of collagen, too, leading to initial improvements and improved skin quality even over time! It’s no wonder patients love Radiesse: with results lasting up to a year or more depending on lifestyle habits and individual needs, they see noticeable benefits after their first injection and effects that get better with time without requiring frequent touch-ups.
What Are the Benefits of Radiesse?
Radiesse injections are best known for filling out deep wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the corner of your nose to the corners of your mouth). They can also plump up thin lips, improve hollowed cheeks, smooth the chin area, and even fill out certain types of scars.
Patients report natural-looking results with minimal discomfort during treatment; side effects are typically limited to mild redness and swelling at the injection site. Plus, since this product contains CaHA microspheres, it offers greater volume than other hyaluronic acid-based fillers. Radiesse is also safe for all skin types and tones due to its non-toxic ingredients like glycerin and lidocaine (an anesthetic).
What Types of Radiesse Fillers Are There?
Radiesse is a popular filler that adds volume and reduces wrinkles on the face and hands. Radiesse comes in two fillers, Radiesse and Radiesse Plus.
Radiesse is a popular filler used to reduce wrinkles and create volume in the face. Radiesse is added beneath the skin to restore fullness and reduce wrinkling in areas such as nasolabial folds (the lines which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth).
Radiesse Plus is a specialized version of Radiesse that is often used in the jawline, specifically to define the chin and contour to the angle of the jaw. Radiesse Plus contains lidocaine — an anesthetic — making injecting easier for those with higher pain sensitivity or who may experience discomfort during aesthetic treatments.
What Should You Expect with Radiesse?
Radiesse treatments provide a simple and highly effective way to reduce signs of aging. During the treatment, Radiesse is carefully and strategically injected into specific areas of the skin. The Radiesse then stimulates collagen production to fill wrinkles, lines, and other imperfections. There’s no prep required for Radiesse treatments, so you can show up and relax with the assurance that you will soon be looking your best! Radiesse typically takes about 30 minutes to complete, making it a relatively quick procedure compared to other treatments.
After treatment, for at least 24 hours, avoid strenuous activity, massaging or manipulating the treated area, exposure to extreme temperatures, alcohol consumption, and using any products containing Retin-A or glycolic acid. To decrease the chances of minor bruising and swelling, apply an ice pack or take over-the-counter medications as suggested by your provider. Radiesse can give you a more youthful look right away; however, taking steps to properly care for your skin afterward gives you lasting benefits that continue to improve as Radiesse stimulates collagen production.
How Long Will the Results of Treatment with Radiesse Last?
Radiesse is an exciting and revolutionary treatment for those who want to maintain natural-looking, defined facial features. Radiesse provides results that last up to an entire year and beyond, so you can look your best without maintaining the same grueling treatment schedule as other options. Radiesse treatments are convenient and highly effective in promoting long-term results due to how they stimulate the body’s collagen production.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment with Radiesse?
Radiesse is an excellent option for those who wish to reduce facial wrinkles and folds. Everyone’s unique needs are considered when determining the ideal cosmetic treatments. Still, Radiesse is an excellent choice for those seeking natural-looking, long-lasting results that instantly boost volume and improve skin structure.
