RADIESSE® Dermal Fillers
Radiesse is a dermal filler injectable used for treating certain areas of the hands and face. The treatment stimulates the production of the body’s natural collagen. It fills in wrinkles and develops new collagen. The primary purpose of the injectable is to treat folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It can also address various other facial areas experiencing fat loss.
Radiesse filler gel comprises of calcium hydroxylapatite gel microspheres. There are certain elements in the gel that help in creating a structure which mimics connective tissue. Radiesse has firmer viscosity, which is why it is chosen for deeper furrows and for replacing or augmenting volume loss in jawline, chin, and cheekbones among other areas.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain provides Radiesse dermal fillers for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds to patients in Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and surrounding communities.
Benefits of Radiesse Facial Filler
Patient goals may vary with dermal fillers like Radiesse. You will find the treatment is commonly used for addressing facial structure and texture. These are a few benefits of Radiesse:
- Reduced signs of aging
- Used for filling specific areas of the hand and face, mainly around the jawline, mouth, and back of the hands where volume has been lost
- Helpful in recontouring the cheeks, nose, and jawline
Radiesse has FDA approval for improving the appearance of severe and moderate facial folds and wrinkles. This includes nasolabial folds. It effectively treats deep folds and hollowness in the mid and lower face. Nasolabial folds, sunken cheeks, and marionette lines are treatable by Radiesse.
This dermal filler is thicker than other available options making it particularly suitable for crepe-like and sagging skin, or significant volume loss. Radiesse stimulates collagen production that remains even when the filler breaks down. This is one dermal filler injectable that keeps on giving.
Radiesse Filler Injectable Procedure
Your skin will be prepared for the treatment after the injector understands your aesthetic goals and prepares a treatment plan. A topical numbing cream is usually applied at the treatment area with or without numbing injections. This depends on the technique used.
Your skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic before delivering the injections. This anesthetic is helpful in reducing pain and discomfort. Many people report sensing pressure not pain with Radiesse injectables. Actual injections don’t take more than 5 to 10 minutes. However, the overall time taken by the procedure will depend on the number of areas treated.
Every injection may cause a small amount of discomfort or pain when the needle is inserted. However, there is little discomfort or pain following that. You should be able to go home without any downtime following the procedure.
Radiesse Treatment Results
You should be able to notice improvements in your skin’s volume immediately. However, complete results may become noticeable only after a week of the treatment. Results tend to get better with time as the filler gel is metabolized by the body. Results may continue to last for 18 to 24 months.
