When it comes to painless, non-surgical ways of removing deeper wrinkles, Radiesse is the obvious choice!

Why Do Wrinkles Occur?

Most of us are born with healthy, supple, and smooth skin. As we get older, however, folds, creases and fine lines begin to appear. Aging is one of the primary causes of wrinkles, but they can also occur due to excessive exposure to the sun, spending a considerable amount of time in water, smoking, alcohol, stress, chronic illnesses, and some medications. Exposure to outside pollutants can also contribute to this issue.

Some treatment procedures such as radiation or chemotherapy can also wreak havoc on the skin’s ability to rejuvenate.

The skin has two types of proteins called elastin and collagen that help the skin retain its texture, tone, and elasticity. Located in the middle layer of the skin or the dermis, these proteins can get damaged with age or the other reasons mentioned above.

When there is less of collagen and elastin, the skin loses its texture and elasticity, leading to the thinning of the skin, sagging, folds, and wrinkles.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a popular dermal filler that restores the elasticity, texture, and volume in one’s skin. It can also reduce or eliminate the folds and creases that form as a result of the aging process.

While other cosmetic fillers are effective against fine lines and static wrinkles, Radiesse is highly effective in areas that have constant muscle movement. Dermatologists recommend Radiesse for:

• Laugh or smile lines

• Marionette Lines or vertical lines that extend to the jawline from the outer corners of the mouth on either side

• Non-invasive nose reshaping

• Nasal Tip Projection

• Lipstick lines

• Lines between the eyebrows

How Does Radiesse Work?

Radiesse works by stimulating skin cells to produce more collagen and elastin. These are the natural proteins that restore the skin volume and texture, giving your skin a complete makeover.

Radiesse contains calcium-based microscopic spheres that are suspended in a gel-like substance. The gel is injected into the deeper layers in the area of skin that needs to be treated.

Over time, the skin’s natural tissue begins to grow into the gel-water matrix. The microspheres stimulate the skin cells to produce collagen, which boosts volume and elasticity.

Radiesse microspheres stay in the place where they are injected for as long as seven years, giving you long-lasting results. Since the injectable is composed of natural and biocompatible ingredients, patients can rest easy knowing that they won’t be adversely affected.

Being a natural product, these microspheres also degrade gently and evenly with time.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

Radiesse is administered in an outpatient facility and does not require a lengthy hospital stay. Being a simple procedure, it can be performed within 20 minutes during a lunch break! The treatment is painless and hassle-free. Your dermatologist may use a topical cream to soothe any discomfort. You can immediately return to your regular activities or work after the injection.

Long Lasting Results from a Radiesse Injection

Since Radiesse microspheres provide a durable scaffolding for your skin’s natural tissue to build itself, the results patients experience are long-lasting. Many patients notice that the pleasing results of Radiesse last for as long as a year and sometimes even longer
