For patients who want a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion without undergoing surgery, Radiesse is one of a number of dermal fillers designed to do just that. Many of these products use a hyaluronic acid base, a component found naturally in your skin. Radiesse is different. Using a proprietary mixture of microspheres suspended in a gel, Radiesse can add volume and stimulate your body’s own natural skin rejuvenation.
Radiesse helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles by adding volume to targeted areas of your face. Its mechanism of action is twofold. First, it acts like other dermal fillers, adding volume beneath the skin. However, unlike other dermal fillers, it doesn’t stop there. The microspheres in Radiesse actually act like a framework, stimulating the production of new collagen within your skin. The result is increased elasticity and a smoother surface, giving you the youthful appearance you crave.
Here at the Vascular Medicine Center, Dr. Shah recommends the use of Radiesse for a number of our patients. These patients prefer the long-lasting results they achieve through this non-surgical approach over other treatments. Radiesse can be used to treat:
- Nasolabial Folds
- Marionette Lines
Treatment with Radiesse takes about 15 minutes. You may receive some local anesthetic before the injections to maximize your comfort. Most patients experience only minor swelling and bruising, if any, at the injection site. This usually clears up in a couple of days. There is no downtime after this procedure, and the results are long lasting.
