Have you ever seen someone who looked youthful and radiant? It is hard to put your finger on exactly what makes someone look like that. A big part of a fresh, glowing appearance is skin volume. As we age, our skin loses its youthful plumpness. Sagging skin, sunken eyes and hollow cheekbones appear over time. To turn back the clock, our professionals can restore skin volume and plumpness with Radiesse. Discover the benefits of this dermal filler during a consultation with us at Chetco Medical & Aesthetics in Brookings, OR!
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler, which means that it physically fills in wrinkles and sagging spots in the skin. Radiesse is an injection made up of calcium hydroxylapatite spheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. The spheres boost skin volume for immediate results. The gel also stimulates collagen production over time. Collagen is an important substance that provides your skin with support.
How Does Radiesse Work?
One of our professionals will make small injections to target areas on your face that have lost volume over time. The calcium hydroxylapatite spheres fill wrinkles and give your face an immediate, youthful boost. Over time, the injection solution absorbs into your body. While it is being absorbed, it also stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen.
What Results Could I Expect?
Radiesse users typically see fewer wrinkles and a general plumpness and fullness around their problem areas. The face should look more lifted and youthful. Full results should be evident in about one week, and some people seeing marked improvements in as little as two or three days. The effects are surprisingly long-lasting. Generally, Radiesse lasts for one year with some people still seeing results after two years.
How Long is Recovery Time?
Radiesse is very convenient and easy to fit into your busy schedule. The entire procedure takes ten to fifteen minutes in our professional office. You should be able to go home immediately after and return to your normal activities for the most part. You should try to limit or avoid sun exposure and any strenuous activities for the first day or two.
Am I A Good Candidate for Radiesse?
If you want to ease wrinkles and add a youthful glow back to your face, then you could be a good candidate for Radiesse. This dermal filler may be effective for most healthy adults who want to treat wrinkles around their nose and mouth. It has also been quite effective with patients who want to add volume to their hands.
