Reduce Your Wrinkles Now With Radiesse Treatments
Radiesse is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment for clients who wish to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and furrows that come with aging, sun exposure or pollutants. It is also used to give volume to thin areas of the face such as the lips and the cheeks.
What is Radiesse and how to dermatologists use it?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that a cosmetic dermatologist injects beneath the skin using fine needles. Radiesse is made up of tiny balls of calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHA. It’s a type of mineral that’s found naturally in bones. In Radiesse, it is suspended in a gel. It not only plumps out wrinkled areas, but stimulates the body to make its own collagen. Collagen is a fibrous protein that’s found throughout the body and makes up connective tissue. It’s also found beneath the layers of skin. There it serves as a sort of springy mattress to keep the skin supple.
What are the lasting effects of this dermal filler?
Radiesse is absorbed harmlessly by the body over time. However, its effects can last for over a year, and even when it’s absorbed it leaves behind the body’s own collagen. Calcium hydroxylapatite is biosynthesized and is not made with any animal products.
What should I expect before, during and after this cosmetic procedure in Calabasas?
Before any Radiesse treatments, the cosmetic dermatologist will review the patient’s medical history then examine and map the areas of the face the client wants treated.
Then, the area will be cleaned and a topical anesthetic may be used. The area will then be injected and evaluated. Depending on what needs to be done, the process can take between 15 minutes and an hour.
After this, the area will be cleaned, and the client will be given an ice pack to keep swelling down. The patient can go home soon after with minimal discomfort if any. The great majority of Radiesse clients are thrilled with the results from their cosmetic dermatology treatment!
