Over time, the natural process of aging and environmental factors like sun exposure can cause your skin to produce less collagen. The skin loses its volume, and affects your fresh, youthful appearance.
If you are ready to take a stand against this process, talk with your dermatologist about Radiesse®. This volumizing injectable is different from other dermal fillers. It goes to work immediately to fill lines and wrinkles with microspheres (tiny beads of non-allergenic calcium in a water-based gel) to smooth your face. It also continues to fight the signs of aging by stimulating your body to produce more natural collagen for several months, so results can last a year or more. As your body gradually absorbs the mineral-like calcium microspheres in Radiesse®, your natural collagen is left behind to revitalize the skin.
Radiesse® is appropriate for most patients who want to improve the appearance of nasolabial folds – those moderate to deep facial creases and wrinkles that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. It can be used together in other areas of the face and body. Once you and your healthcare professional have discussed your medical history and cosmetic goals to determine if Radiesse® is right for you, your treatment will be scheduled. Full correction only takes a few minutes, and you can be on your way with minimal if any recovery time.
Radiesse® is safe. It is FDA approved and has undergone rigorous safety testing. Your dermatologist will talk with you, though, about the possibility of temporary, mild side effects. You may experience some redness, bruising, or swelling that should resolve within a few days. Tell your doctor if you’re concerned about discomfort during or after treatment. Radiesse® is FDA approved to combine with lidocaine, a local anesthetic that can be used to make the procedure much more comfortable.
