Radiesse is a volumizing filler made of gel and calcium-based microspheres that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other facial lines by providing volume. Once it is injected, Radiesse provides immediate results that are natural-looking. It also stimulates production of your own natural collagen for several months after hair injection. Since Radiesse is biocompatible, it will be naturally metabolized by the body, so there’s no risk involved. A quick visit to the doctor’s office with immediate results that leave you looking younger — What more could you ask for?
The results of a Radiesse treatment can last up to a year or more. It is most effective when used to target laugh and frown lines and crow’s feet, but can show results on almost any part of the face that you would like to have a smoother appearance. The FDA-approved product also can be safely mixed with an anesthetic, so you can enjoy the benefits of this minimally invasive procedure with minimal discomfort.
Before you consider a Radiesse treatment, you will need to have a consultation to discuss if the product is right for your needs. While Radiesse is a simple treatment, side effects are possible. Minor itching, redness, swelling or bruising should subside in a few days, but if you experience any persistent side effects, contact your doctor immediately.
If you’d like to bring youth and radiance back to your face but would rather not take the plunge for an intensive plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift, a Radiesse treatment may give you the results that you desire.
*Disclaimer: Please note that outcomes from plastic surgery procedures may vary.
