Ease the Signs of Aging in the Face and Hands with Radiesse® at North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics!
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that provides patients with both instant and long-term wrinkle correction that can last up to two years. This volumizing filler is strong enough to correct significant volume loss, especially volume loss in the cheek area.
How Does Radiesse® Work?
What sets Radiesse® apart from other dermal fillers is the unique way it provides both short-term and long-term correction to fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume in both the face and hands.
This product is made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. When injected under the skin, this product immediately adds volume and fullness. In the weeks and months following the initial injection, the CaHA microspheres injected into the skin begin to metabolize, encouraging the body to create collagen. This collagen supports the natural structure of the skin, adding volume and definition to it.
Because this product causes the body to create a more long-term solution to volume loss in the skin, the results of treatment last long after the original CaHA microspheres have left the body.
What Radiesse® Treat?
Radiesse® can be used to treat a wide range of facial wrinkles and fine lines, including:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Pre-jowl folds
- Chin wrinkles
In addition to addressing the signs of aging on the face, Radiesse® is one of the only dermal fillers that is FDA approved for wrinkle correction on the hands.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
For patients interested in a more comfortable treatment experience, Radiesse® can be mixed with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic. Depending on the amount of filler needed, the injection session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to a full hour. While some patients experience irritation, itching, swelling, discoloration, tenderness, and bruising after treatment, these usually fade within a few days. Once the injections are complete, most people experience results that can last for a year or more.
