The visible signs of aging may appear at any point in our lives for a variety of reasons, including long exposure to the sun, pollution, gravity, diet, and genetics. They may appear as wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet. The changes to your facial features may begin to make you look older than you would like, but with the right treatment, you won’t have to live with them any longer.

There are numerous skin procedures available to help patients erase the signs of aging. One such treatment is Radiesse, a minimally invasive procedure that can plump up wrinkly skin and give you back your youthful glow.

How Does Radiesse Help Reduce your Wrinkles?

Radiesse is a calcium hydroxylapatite-based dermal filler that is injected into a specific area by an experienced plastic surgeon to help smooth out wrinkles, eliminate scars, and add volume to the skin. A Radiesse injection will work alongside your skin’s collagen to give you a more alert and youthful appearance. The results are immediate, safe, and long-lasting.

For those who have severe wrinkles, your care provider may suggest Radiesse (+). This filler can tackle excessive wrinkles on the face and in other areas such as the nasolabial skin folds. It is an effective treatment for both the face and the hands.

When your surgeon injects the Radiesse compound, it will be done alongside an anesthetic to help ease any kind of discomfort. Once the compound is absorbed into the skin the Calcium Hydroxylapatite molecules are broken down. In order to experience the best results possible, you will need to strictly adhere to any post-treatment instructions given to you by your surgeon.

If you have any preexisting health conditions, your care provider may suggest postponing the treatment until you are in good health. In addition to this, people with skin infections are usually advised to wait until the infection has healed before undergoing the treatment.

Common Symptoms that can be Treated by Radiesse

Radiesse is commonly used to address a variety of facial aging symptoms such as:

  • Wrinkles in the corners of the mouth and chin
  • Jowls
  • Smile lines and marionette lines
  • Visible tendons and veins on the hands due to the loss of skin volume

In addition to being quick and painless, the Radiesse treatment will not leave behind any post-surgical marks. The results provided look natural and in some cases may last up to a year or more. The change to your facial appearance will leave you feeling happier and more confident.

A Radiesse treatment is not advised for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. If you have areas where you recently received other skin treatments such as chemical peels, then you might have to wait some time before you are given the injection.
