Your face shows signs of aging when the skin loses collagen, a component that keeps your skin firm and youthful. Radiesse® can correct wrinkles, restore facial volume and stimulate the production of more collagen in your skin.
At Revalla Plastic Surgery in South Denver, Radiesse injections can help you treat wrinkles and folds without surgery or downtime.
If you want a solution for your facial wrinkles and folds, you may benefit from Radiesse treatments. After injection, Radiesse causes your body to produce more collagen, a process called collagenesis.
Your surgeon can use Radiesse to treat the following signs of aging:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Mouth wrinkles
- Flat, sunken, or hollow cheeks
- Loss of volume and appearance of thin skin on backs of hands.
Candidates for Radiesse are healthy adults between the age of 18-65 years of age.
TECHNIQUES IN RADIESSE TREATMENT
Radiesse is injected beneath your skin in the areas that need wrinkle correction. The filler restores volume to sunken areas, reducing the appearance of lines and contour depressions.
Radiesse is made from calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. Over time, the calcium-based microspheres cause your body to generate more collagen. But you will see the effects of your Radiesse injections right away, as the injection immediately restores volume to your face and skin.
After your Radiesse treatments, your body will slowly produce more collagen, which means you will continually see the results and they will last up to one year.
Radiesse injections can cause some swelling, bruising, or redness where the doctor made the injections. These are temporary. You can return to your normal tasks right away.
Alternatives to Radiesse include other fillers that can be used to restore lost facial volume. Treatments like Botox® can improve signs of facial aging on the forehead and in the eye area. These facial treatments work differently than Radiesse, acting on the small facial muscles that cause expression lines and wrinkles.
