Radiesse, an Alternative filler with natural looking results.

The exciting world of aesthetic injections is constantly growing and improving. This gives you options to be able to choose the product that you are most comfortable with and strive for the desired results.  

 

Are you feeling like your face is “falling” or maybe you’re just feeling like you need a little lift?! We have a variety of options to help you! We have several gel hyaluronic acid fillers such as the Juvederm and Restylane product lines.  These are great options to for those seeking immediate volume to the face. We also offer Sculptra which is a poly-L-lactic acid based treatment. This product works to stimulate the body’s own collagen production. Sculptra typically takes about 6-8 weeks to see results of the collagen building. This is perfect for the person looking for slower more natural improvement.   If you like the idea of a filler that promotes collagen growth but also want immediate volume we offer Radiesse.

 

How does Radiesse work? Radiesse works right away adding facial volume and diminishing the appearance of facial line and wrinkles.  Wrinkles form due to the natural loss of fat/volume and decreased levels of collagen over time. Radiesse is a smooth gel filled with tiny calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. This gel, when it is injected, immediately lifts and adds volume to the face. Over the next few weeks these calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres stimulate the body to produce collagen. Your new collagen will surround the microspheres and eventually the microspheres and the gel are naturally metabolized by your body.  What you have left is newly formed natural collagen. Because of this, Radiesse produces a nice natural result. You will see a restored, lifted, more youthful appearance without looking overdone.

 

Typically areas of use for Radiesse are nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, down turning corners of the mouth, chin wrinkles, jowls and hands. Results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients. Radiesse is mixed with lidocaine to help make the injecting experience more comfortable. Like all fillers there is a risk of bruising, swelling, mild irritation, itching, redness or tenderness at the injection site. All of these reactions will typically resolve on their own.
