Radiesse® Wrinkle Therapy

A dermal filler that's used to smooth moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). Radiesse is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands. 

Radiesse® Wrinkle Therapy

The journey to maintain youthful skin in the face of natural aging has led to the development of numerous dermal fillers, each with its unique properties and benefits. Radiesse® stands out as a distinctive wrinkle treatment that not only fills, but also stimulates the skin's natural collagen production. Dermatologists play an essential role in the administration and success of this treatment.

What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is a dermal filler comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. Unlike hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Radiesse® not only fills wrinkles and folds but also stimulates the skin's collagen production. Over time, the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind only the natural collagen.

Applications and Benefits

 

  1. Immediate Volume and Lift: Upon injection, Radiesse® provides immediate volume, effectively reducing the appearance of deep lines and folds.

  2. Collagen Stimulation: The CaHA microspheres stimulate natural collagen production, leading to prolonged and natural-looking results.

  3. Versatility: While it's primarily known for its efficacy in treating deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, Radiesse® is also FDA-approved for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the dorsum of the hands.

  4. Duration: One of the appealing features of Radiesse® is its lasting effect, with results often persisting for a year or more in many patients.

 

The Dermatologist's Touch

Opting to have Radiesse® treatments under the care of a dermatologist comes with numerous advantages:

 

  1. Expertise: Dermatologists possess a deep understanding of the skin's anatomy and the aging process. Their expertise ensures precise placement of the filler to achieve optimal results.

  2. Safety: With their extensive training, dermatologists can minimize risks associated with filler injections, such as bruising, swelling, or more rare side effects.

  3. Tailored Approach: Every face is unique. A dermatologist can assess individual needs, determining the right amount and placement of Radiesse® to harmonize with one's natural features.

 

Post-Treatment and Care

After receiving Radiesse® treatments, patients might experience some common side effects like redness, swelling, pain, or bruising at the injection site. These are typically mild and resolve on their own in a short span. It's usually advised to avoid strenuous activities, excessive sun or heat exposure, and certain medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding for a day or two post-treatment.

 

Radiesse® offers a dual-action solution to combat signs of aging, providing immediate correction while fostering natural collagen production for sustained results. Under the skilled hands of a dermatologist, patients can navigate the myriad of aesthetic treatments available, ensuring safety, efficacy, and results that enhance their natural beauty. As with all cosmetic procedures, clear communication about expectations and potential outcomes is key to satisfaction.
