Signs of aging are inevitable; fortunately, there are quick and easy treatments for them. Radiesse is one of the most effective treatment options for wrinkling, fine lines, and loss of volume associated with aging.
What are Radiesse and its benefits? Keep reading to find out.
Radiesse – A Quick Summary
Radiesse is a filler that can be injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles or folds, most frequently on the face. Radiesse works by stimulating the collagen that is already present beneath your skin. It is a highly sought-after alternative for dermal fillers because it acts immediately, lasts up to two years, and is effective.
Adults between the ages of 35 and 60 who have developed folds and wrinkles around their lips and nose make excellent candidates for Radiesse treatments. Candidates who desire to have their hand skin plumped up make ideal candidates. The Radiesse components are safe for your body’s natural tissues, non-allergenic, and non-toxic.
How Does Radiesse Work?
The primary active ingredient in Radiesse is calcium hydroxyapatite. The microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel that make up Radiesse start working immediately after being injected. Phosphate and calcium ions, which are present in the body naturally, make up CaHA.
The injectable gel does all of the initial fillings. However, over time, the CaHA promotes your skin’s collagen, enabling your skin to manufacture more natural “filler.” The gel’s hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon content contribute to the development of a structure resembling connective tissue.
Your body eventually absorbs the CaHA, leaving your collagen in its place. Radiesse’s science allows treatment outcomes to continue for over a year and sometimes even up to two years.
The Benefits of Radiesse
Radiesse has several benefits you don’t want to miss; however, we will only go through five of those benefits.
Radiesse is All-Natural
An allergy test is typically performed initially to see if you might be allergic to the drug before you are given a dermal filler injection. Radiesse, though, is unique. Patients have no risk of developing an allergy to Radiesse because it is made of substances that naturally occur in the body.
Because the treatment has a natural approach, Radiesse doesn’t require allergy tests before the procedure.
Radiesse is Quick and Convenient
Radiesse can be an excellent option if you want to impact your face significantly but don’t have much time to commit to an extreme treatment that requires a lengthy recovery. Radiesse treatments are brief, usually lasting only 15 minutes.
Radiesse Improves the Appearance in Many Ways
Some of the early indicators of aging are deep lines and wrinkles. And acne scars are stubborn remnants of an uglier past. All of these facial abnormalities can be treated adequately with Radiesse.
Radiesse works best for replacing lost volume in the cheeks and midface of both men and women. The deep nasolabial folds are softened or removed when filling these areas because they raise the cheek segment (the wrinkles that appear between your nose and mouth). Additionally, the nasolabial fold can be lifted with Radiesse to reduce deep wrinkles and acne scarring.
Radiesse Can Recontour Your Appearance
Patients should be aware that Radiesse can be customized and is frequently used as an alternative to face implants in place of dermal fillers. Radiesse can be the dermal filler that gives you the outcomes you want if you have sunken cheeks, an uneven jawline, or need to recontour your nose slightly.
Radiesse Requires No Downtime While Offering Long-Lasting Results
Radiesse has very minimal downtime, which is one of its main advantages. After receiving a Radiesse treatment in the morning, you can go to work the same day. The day after your Radiesse treatment, you can return to your workouts and rigorous activity routine again.
Aside from requiring no downtime, Radiesse also boasts very long-lasting results. Radiesse patients report that the dermal filler lasts for a year to 18 months and occasionally even longer.
How Does the Procedure Go?
Your provider will first decide where each injection needs to be administered. The places where they will inject you will then be treated with antiseptic. The provider will then determine your dosage. You will then get the injections.
Your doctor will inject Radiesse at their clinic under local anesthetic. It’s conceivable that each injection will cause you some discomfort or slight pain. Radiesse injections can be coupled with Lidocaine, which is FDA-approved for reducing any discomfort you may have during the operation.
The length of a Radiesse operation depends on the number of injections required and can last up to 15 minutes. After receiving your injections, you should be able to leave the doctor’s office without spending any time recovering.
Does Radiesse Have Side Effects?
The following were the most frequent adverse effects mentioned by those who received Radiesse facial injections:
Following Radiesse injections in their hands, patients have described the following adverse effects:
- Problems moving normally
- Feeling loss
- Nodules and lumps
Avoid this procedure if you have a history of adverse reactions or are allergic to any of the components in Radiesse. If you have an allergy to lidocaine or other comparable medicines, you should also stay away from Radiesse.
Radiesse shouldn’t be used by anyone who has a bleeding issue, is pregnant, or is nursing a baby. Those who have previously had herpes may experience an outbreak after the operation.
Never have Radiesse injections if you have a skin infection that is still active. Infection is a possibility with all injectable procedures.
Furthermore, if you get injections, you risk getting Radiesse inadvertently in your blood vessel rather than your connective tissue. The best way to avoid such undesirable outcomes is to work with trained and experienced professionals.
