How Radiesse Works
As our body ages, its natural production of collagen begins to deteriorate. As a result, the quality of your skin will begin to degrade. This is a natural part of the aging process. Externally this breaking down of collagen manifests itself on the face in the form of fine lines and wrinkles. This combined with the loss of facial volume, takes our youthful look away with it.
Radiesse is one of the safest and effective ways to counteract this phenomenon. Radiesse is a filler that is comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite, a compound which is naturally found in the body. It is commonly found in our teeth and bones.
An Introduction to Radiesse
In simple words, Radiesse is a composition of calcium hydroxyapatite particles in the form of gel. It is the most suitable compound for remedying facial imperfections. As it is composed of natural constituents of our body, you can expect to filler to have a very lo risk of complications.
The key benefit is that the results are instantaneously visible. It is usually used to bring back the bulk of the cheekbones, decrease profound scars from the region in between the nose and the upper lip, fixing corneal edges, and gives volume to a small or diminishing chin.
How Is Radiesse Unique?
Radiesse is not only an easy moving filler that adds volume, but it acts as a booster to your body’s natural production of collagen. Along with providing a structure for more collagen development, it helps improve the overall look and feel of the skin. The regeneration of collagen over the filler continues for few months after the treatment.
What makes Radiesse more attractive is the fact that it is an FDA (Federal Drug Administration) sanctioned filler that is very popular all over the world.
Administering the Radiesse Filler
The Radiesse treatment is a quick process that does not involve incisions or highly invasive techniques, while providing a long lasting youthful look. Patients can rest easy knowing that it will not cause any swelling as it is delivered to the deep-seated layers of the skin and not to the surface such as other hyaluronic fillers.
Before the treatment, the region of application is usually numbed. The filler is administered through thin needles. Depending on your needs, the entire process can be completed in as little as ten minutes.
Your doctor will then gently shape the gel under the skin as required. The results are visible immediately after application, and sometimes it may not be up to the level the patient expected, but not to lose heart, it can be attained in the subsequent treatments as advised by your doctor.
How Good are the Results?
The final outcome is immediately apparent, after two weeks of the treatment, the product is indistinguishable from the skin. The gel will remain fixed at the point where it was delivered as the particles are bonded with the freshly generated collagen. The results you achieve may last for a little over one to two years.
