Treating Wrinkles

The search for the fountain of youth has been an ongoing quest for thousands of years. While this has seen a long-standing exercise in futility, dermal fillers have burst into the scene and somewhat delivered what the mythical fountain could not. The injections fill in your wrinkles and add volume where it’s needed. A few quick injections and your face will transform into a smooth, plump, and youthful appearance—no magical water immersion required.

If you are considering dermal fillers, then you should consider Radiesse.


What Is Radiesse?

This is a revolutionary FDA-approved injectable filler that you can also use on your hands. The results are impressive!

Does this sound too good to be true? Though the outcomes of Radiesse® may fade with time, they are visible, and the transformation is well worth the treatment.


How Does It Work?

The treatment stimulates the production of the body’s natural collagen, which fills the wrinkles in your face. Initially, it does the work of filling in the volume loss. But with time, it stimulates your natural collagen, allowing your skin to produce more of its filler. The new collagen replaces volume loss and fills in deeper furrows.

Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxylapatite gel microspheres. The carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen components create a structure that mimics connective tissue. The gel has a firm viscosity that offers impressive results in augmenting and replacing volume loss in the chin, cheekbones, and jawline. Eventually, Radiesse absorbs into your body, leaving the natural collagen in place.


Benefits of Using Radiesse

The results of using this treatment vary depending on the patient. But whether you need an improvement in your hands or lower face, this treatment will provide smooth and natural-looking results.

Here are some of the benefits of Radiesse.

·      Long-lasting

You can expect to see immediate results after the treatment. Within a week, you will notice the full results. Although the results are not permanent, studies show that Radiesse injectable treatment can last 12 months. For some people, their bodies continue producing natural collagen for two years.

·      Natural-looking

The treatment gives a natural look as the constituents of Radiesse stimulate the body’s natural collagen. The carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen molecules also metabolize and absorb into the body, leaving collagen as the remaining residue. Remember to avoid strenuous exercises and activities for the best results.

·      Re-contouring

Radiesse adds volume to the back of the hands and re-contours the chin, cheeks, nose, and jawline. It also improves the appearance of moderate to severe nasolabial folds and wrinkles and helps fill deeper furrows, leading to re-contouring.


Immediate Results

Radiesse replenishes the skin almost immediately because people experience the full results within a week of getting treatments. Your skin will improve and look youthful, but you must avoid direct heat and sunlight for at least 24 hours. Let the redness and swelling dissipate before returning to your usual daily routine.



A benefit of using Radiesse is that it does not take long to see the outcome, lasting from 18 to 24 months. The components of the treatment break down and absorb into the body, making it a very popular procedure.
