Radiesse Dermal Filler
Radiesse is a dermal filler injectable treatment used for plumping folded or wrinkled areas of the skin, primarily in the face. Radiesse stimulates collagen under the skin to volumize in an effective manner. The injectable provides immediate results, which can last for up to two years. This dermal filler is usually injected in the skin surrounding the mouth and nose.
People choosing this procedure can use it to fill wrinkled areas in the hands as well. Tiny needle is used for injecting the dermal filler under the skin. Radiesse ingredients are nonallergenic, nontoxic and compatible with the natural tissues of the body.
Ideal candidates of Radiesse treatment are usually adults between 35 and 60. They may have wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. Suitable candidates include those wanting skin on their hands plumped as well. The treatment is in some cases recommended for people with fat loss in the facial area because of an illness.
Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides Radiesse soft tissue filler injections for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations.
How Does it Work?
Radiesse comprises of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres that immediately start working on injecting. CaHa comprises of calcium and phosphate ions that naturally occur in the human body. The injectable gel starts working by volumizing the targeted areas.
With time, CaHa begins stimulating collagen in the body to empower the skin to build natural filler. The gel contains oxygen, hydrogen and carbon for creating a structure that mimics the body’s connective tissue.
Eventually, CaHa is absorbed back in the body leaving collagen as a residue. Treatment results can last anywhere for a year or two.
Individuals generally get Radiesse in the face, especially around the mouth and nose. This is where the skin is the most folded and wrinkled. Radiesse can be used for filling laugh lines to restore a youthful appearance. In rare cases, Radiesse can be used for filling deep scars as well.
You can use the dermal injectable for filling in lost volume in wrinkled hands. The treatment is recommended for people that have lost a lot of fat in their face because of HIV.
The treatment provider will inject the compound as an in-office procedure using local anesthesia. Each injection prick may come with mild discomfort. FDA approved lidocaine is usually combined with Radiesse injections for easing any pain you may feel.
Your doctor will first determine the treatment areas where you need the injection. They will use antiseptic on the site while deciding on the correct dosage of Radiesse. Finally, you would be given the injections. It can take as long as 15 minutes for the complete Radiesse treatment to be performed. This depends on the number of injections you require.
There is no downtime involved with Radiesse. You would be allowed to go home almost immediately after receiving the injections.
