  • Anti-Aging Spotlight: Radiesse

    Skin aging is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fight back. With Radiesse , your dermatologist can help you turn back the hands of time and reclaim a youthful appearance, all with a simple, in-office, non-surgical procedure. Is Radiesse the right answer to your skin-aging complaints? Here is what you need to know.

    What is Radiesse?

    Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler that is used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles, particularly the nasolabial folds. It is also the only dermal filler that is FDA-approved to the treat the loss of skin volume on the back of the hands that is associated with aging. Radiesse consists of a water-based gel that is filled with microspheres made of calcium. After Radiesse is injected, it is slowly absorbed by the body at the same time that it stimulates collagen production. Ultimately, the Radiesse is replaced by collagen, so that the results look natural.

    What areas can be treated using Radiesse?

    Radiesse is primarily used on the lower portion of the face. It can be injected into smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and around the corner of the mouth. It can also be injected into the hands. Radiesse is not typically used to treat the areas around the eyes, but it can be used in conjunction with other anti-aging treatments that address wrinkles in those areas for an overall more youthful appearance.

    What should I expect if I get Radiesse?

    The process of getting Radiesse is fast, and because it is mixed with lidocaine, an anesthetic, it is less painful than other dermal filler treatments. You may experience minor bruising, swelling or redness in the treatment areas, but this usually clears up quickly. You can resume your normal activities after your treatment, and you will notice your results immediately.

  • How Radiesse Works

    Radiesse is an anti-aging skin care treatment offered by many dermatologists. Radiesse is a dermal filler that is injected into the skin to make it appear younger, smoother, and more radiant. The Radiesse injection stimulates the body’s healing response, causing it to produce more collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin naturally make the skin appear younger, smoother, and plumper.

    Your dermatologist will inject Radiesse into your skin with a very small needle in a quick, painless procedure. You will see immediate results that look very natural. Over time, you will notice even more benefits from Radiesse, as it will continue to stimulate your body’s production of collagen even after the procedure is performed. These results can last a year or more, and you can continue to get Radiesse injections as necessary.
