What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler used worldwide to diminish the appearance of age lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. The FDA-approved injectable is comprised of tiny microspheres suspended in a gel-like solution. The microspheres are made of a substance that is naturally found in the body, which means that allergic reactions are highly unlikely.
How Does it Work?
The solution will be injected into the affected facial areas using an ultra-fine needle. Once injected, Radiesse will begin to add volume to your skin, diminishing wrinkles and folds.
While you will notice immediate results, the effects of treatment should continue to improve for up to three months afterward. But they won’t stop there.
Radiesse one of the longest lasting dermal fillers on the market. After three months, the naturally-occurring solution will cause new tissue to develop, which can further extend your results for up to two years.
What Areas Can be Treated?
Radiesse can restore your natural, youthful appearance by adding volume to the following areas.
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
- Frown lines
- Lip augmentation
- Bridge or nasal augmentation
- Cheek enhancement
- Chin reshaping
- Jawline contouring
- Nasal obstruction
What to Expect
Radiesse treatment is an outpatient procedure that uses a local anesthetic. The process takes around 15 minutes, though your case may take longer if you have more than one area being treated.
After numbing the area, Dr. Ali will inject Radiesse into your skin, allowing the solution to go to work.
You will be able to resume your normal activities immediately following treatment.
Are You a Good Candidate for Radiesse?
Dr. Ali recommends that you schedule a consultation to determine if you are a viable candidate for Radiesse cosmetic filler. If you are aged 35-60 and find yourself experiencing mild to moderate facial aging, you may be a good candidate for Radiesse treatment.
You are also said to be a good candidate for treatment if you have deep wrinkles around the mouth or cheeks, scarring or skin depressions or wish to increase the size and shape of your lips.
If you are experiencing more severe signs of aging, ask Dr. Ali about a facelift or other appropriate facial plastic surgery procedure during your consultation.
