RADIESSE is a nontoxic, hypoallergenic, injectable cosmetic skin care treatment used to plump the moderate to severe wrinkled or folded specific areas of the face particularly nasolabial folds (lines which extend from the nose corners towards mouth corners).
RADIESSE is an FDA approved rejuvenating method for the face and dorsum of hand as well. It minimizes the prominence of tendons and bones at the back of hand and gives an overall fuller and younger look.
How it works?
One of the principle components of RADIESSE is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) which is a natural mineral found in the stones, bones and teeth. Calcium directly acts on the activation and proliferation of fibroblasts hence works as a collagen stimulator. Collagen and elastin both play a major role in the strengthening and elasticity of skin which was lost unfortunately by the aging process. This injection filled with gel works very well with the volume and treats every fold and wrinkle you wanted to. With the passage of time, CaHA allows the skin to produce more of its own fillers by stimulating naturally occurring collagen. The gel contains carbon, hydrogen and oxygen which help in creating a structure like connective tissue.
Benefits of RADIESSE
Typically, when you are injected with dermal fillers you need to undergo an allergy test but with RADIESSE there is no risk of allergies because it is made up of naturally occurring elements in the body.
Quick and convenient
Its administration time is just a few minutes. It might take up to 15-30 minutes depending upon the face or hand areas you are targeting. Truly, there is no aesthetic service which is more convenient than RADIESSE.
This anti-aging treatment is versatile in its nature because it not only plumps up face cheeks but re-contours the cheeks and irregular jaw-line completely by adding volume to the lines, folds and wrinkles. It treats acne scars, elevates nasolabial folds, tightens and lifts up the skin by removing deep lines so gives an overall younger look.
Minimal preparation and instant results
If you follow a healthy lifestyle (no smoking or drinking alcohol) and are not taking any blood thinning medicines like warfarin, so you are ready to go. You can start receiving treatment just after your first consultation. You can see the better results immediately after your first injection.
RADIESSE Has No Downtime and Offers Long Lasting Results
Contrary to other aesthetic services, the best thing about RADIESSE is that it has completely no downtime. You can even return to your work at the same day of your treatment. There’s no straight laying for 72 hours or so. Any strenuous activity or physical exercise can be resumed just after the day when you got treatment. But even better than recovery time, “the long-lasting results” is the quality what attracts the patients more.
Immediately after the treatment, results are visible. Obvious results appear after about 7 to 10 days. Dermatologists strongly recommend visiting for a touch-up treatment after seven months. Patients report that results last for 18 months, sometimes even long-term for up to two years without the repeat procedures.
