As your skin ages, its production of collagen is decreased. Collagen is a building block of healthy skin, providing it with volume, strength and flexibility. When your skin begins to lose collagen, you’re left with fine lines, wrinkles and lax skin.
Fortunately, you can achieve younger-looking skin with Radiesse®, an injectable dermal filler that helps to smooth lines and return lost volume to skin. We encourage you to learn more about this convenient, non-invasive cosmetic procedure to see if it may be an option to consider for your personal skin rejuvenation.
This injectable is meant for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles. A gel-like substance containing calcium-filled microspheres is injected into the skin to add volume to lines, creases and wrinkles. The unique combination of microspheres and gel is what helps to provide such natural-looking and smooth plumping to wrinkles.
Results can be seen immediately and improve over time, with a boost in collagen production occurring approximately three months after treatment. It is this added benefit that many patients appreciate, as it helps to maintain firmness and fullness for a year or more.
This versatile treatment is effective in the reduction of wrinkles and the return of volume in a number of different areas. It is particularly effective around the nose and lips of the face. Radiesse® can help to reduce the look of nasolabial folds, marionette lines and smile lines. In addition, it’s often recommended for wrinkles in the cheeks, to correct a chin dimple and to provide a more contoured silhouette by enhancing the jawline and mandibular angle.
How It Works
Our skilled cosmetic professional will inject Radiesse® into the skin of the treatment area. It begins to work immediately, and your session should be no longer than 15 minutes. This, of course, depends on the size of the area to be treated. While you will likely see added volume right away, the effects will improve over time.
Approximately three months after your treatment, your skin will begin to kick-start its production of collagen. Your body will begin to metabolize and reabsorb the gel substance and microspheres gradually over time, as well.
