You are active, fun-loving, and feel full of energy – in fact, if it weren’t for the visible signs of aging which are beginning to show up on your face and hands, no one would ever guess your real age. Taking steps to reverse the effects of time on your skin can result in your outside appearance matching your mind’s youthful attitude – not to mention boost confidence and self-esteem.
RADIESSE® offers long-lasting effects that clients love. RADIESSE® utilizes collagen stimulant filler which produces positive results for patients looking to fill smile or marionette lines. Also, RADIESSE® can revitalize different area of the body, so that we can feel more confident head to toe.
Explaining Collagen – How RADIESSE® Works
Throughout our lives, our bodies naturally produce collagen. This protein binds all cells and tissues together in the body and is abundant in younger skin. As women age, their body produces less and less collagen, typically 1% less every year after the age of 20. This loss of collagen results in your skin looking less firm with less thickness and volume.
RADIESSE® consists of tiny calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel. These microspheres contain ingredients that closely simulate the collagen and minerals found naturally in the body. Once injected, RADIESSE® fills and plumps the skin, creating a smoother surface and correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. The product is then absorbed by your body, leaving behind only natural collagen for long-lasting results.
The smooth, natural-looking results of a RADIESSE® treatment will be evident immediately and typically last up to a year for most patients. Not only that, but RADIESSE® treatments also help to stimulate your body’s own natural collagen production for longer lasting results.
What Can You Expect at Your Appointment?
RADIESSE® is injected under the skin in a quick and straightforward procedure performed in less than an hour. RADIESSE® is also FDA-approved to mix with the anesthetic lidocaine, reducing pain or discomfort involved in the injection.
Our experienced providers will always start with a consultation. Not only will this ensure your safety during the procedure but will help us to determine the best course of treatment for your expectations and comfort level.
Be sure to tell us about any medications you may be taking, as blood thinners or medicines that can interfere with blood clotting may increase the likelihood of bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Be sure to let us know about any diseases, injuries or disabilities, or any history of scarring or skin irritations.
