Loss of skin elasticity and volume are two of the most common signs of facial aging.However, it is possible to restore youthful volume and refresh the skin, with the help of soft tissue fillers like Radiesse. One treatment with Radiesse will leave your skin looking smoother and plumper, so, let’s take a closer look at how Radiesse restores facial volume.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a volume-producing injectable filler that is widely used to enhance facial features. It is made from calcium hydroxylapatite (HA), which is a mineral-like compound that is naturally present in the body.
Radiesse is approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. It is commonly used to minimize marionette lines at the corner of the mouth,as well as nasolabial folds that extend from the side of the nose down to the mouth.
The treatment site is cleansed, and then Radiesse is injected into the skin tissues. When injected, Radiesse creates an almost immediate increase in volume. The effects also continue as time passes, because it stimulates collagen growth. Collagen is an essential protein that is necessary for maintaining tight skin.
What to expect
Radiesse is a safe, quick procedure that can be done in less than an hour. Some patients experience minor swelling after the injection, but this can be minimized by applying ice to the treatment site. Unlike other soft tissue fillers that only last for a few months, Radiesse can last up to one year, and even longer in some cases.
