When you think about the most obvious signs of aging, lines and wrinkles are usually the first to come to mind. However, few factors show more proof of the aging process than lost facial volume. If you want to restore lost facial volume, you need a dermal filler specially designed to do just that. Radiesse® stands out as a dermal filler that specifically works to plump up and volumize the skin.
Radiesse® has been proven as a safe and effective treatment for many people. As with most other fillers and injectables, good candidates for this treatment include those in relatively good health who want to improve the look and feel of their skin. If you are unsure whether or not Radiesse® is right for you, we can help you explore your options during your consultation.
Radiesse® is applied via injection just underneath the surface of the skin in the area in which you are experiencing volume loss. You will notice some results immediately after treatment, but the benefits don’t stop there. Since the formula encourages the body to produce more collagen, the protein responsible for keeping your skin elastic and tight, your results will continue to improve as collagen production peaks.
Many patients are able to restore their facial volume to a point they are happy with after just one treatment session. The number of treatments you will need will depend on your specific situation and your personal cosmetic goals. Since Radiesse® is semi-permanent, you can safely come back for touch-up treatments to maintain your results. However, since Radiesse® can last up to a year, you will be able to go for long periods of time without having to think about scheduling a touch-up appointment.
Before your actual treatment session, we will meet with you for a consultation to explain the benefits of Radiesse® in detail, go over your questions and concerns, and officially decide if Radiesse® is the best course of action for you. If it is, we will then let you know what to expect and how to prepare for the procedure.
Radiesse® is a versatile filler. Many patients like to use it to fill in nasolabial folds and marionette lines, but it is also effective for plumping up the cheeks and revitalizing the hands. The areas you will treat will depend on your preferences, and we will work with you to tailor a treatment plan suited to your needs.
