What Causes Facial Aging

The loss of collagen is the primary reason for the onset of facial wrinkles and the loss of facial volume as you grow older. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together, making your skin look taut and firm against the force of gravity. As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen decreases by 1% yearly, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. Radiesse catalyzes your innate collagen production capabilities to reverse the signs of aging.

How Radiesse Works

Radiesse is a cosmetic injection that stimulates collagen production to reverse the signs of aging. It’s made of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite, a component that can boost collagen production. When injected into targeted facial tissues, the calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres instantly fill out the fine lines and wrinkles, thus reducing the facial creases. But the true results appear as your body produces a higher volume of collagen, making your facial skin look smoother, fuller, and more youthful.

Radiesse Treats:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Facial creases and folds
  • Nasolabial folds around the nose
  • Marionette lines around the mouth
  • Deep tear troughs
  • Gaunt or hollow cheeks
  • Small or recessed chin

Non-Surgical Augmentation with Radiesse

Radiesse is often used for the non-surgical augmentation of the chin or cheeks. When injected into targeted facial tissues around the chin, Radiesse pushes some of the underlying tissues up and forward, making your chin look firmer. Over time, your body stimulates collagen production to make the chin look longer and more prominent on your face. The same can be done with the cheeks to reverse the effects of aging. Radiesse can sculpt facial contours.

Radiesse FAQs

What happens during the Radiesse treatment?

Radiesse is a simple treatment. During your Radiesse session, we cleanse your facial skin, mark the targeted treatment areas on your face, and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The appropriate units of Radiesse are carefully injected into the targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes.

What are the side effects of Radiesse?

Radiesse produces mild side effects, such as redness, tenderness, numbness, swelling, and bruising around the treatment areas for a few days.

Is there any downtime after Radiesse?

There’s no downtime after Radiesse. You may resume your daily activities immediately, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a day.

When will I see the results of Radiesse?

Radiesse produces instant results that gradually improve for several weeks. Your facial skin will look smoother and firmer after the treatment, but the final results may take weeks to appear as your body produces new collagen fibers.

How long will the Radiesse results last?

The final results of Radiesse last for 12 to 18 months. Most patients undergo one Radiesse treatment every two years to maintain an effortlessly ageless appearance.
