Radiesse Offers Non-Surgical Wrinkle Reduction

April 6, 2018, 8:42 pm

Wrinkles are something that we all struggle with as we grow older. Age lines and creases are unavoidable and inevitable. However, they can be delayed. Why not enjoy a youthful appearance for as long as possible? Radiesse can help you get rid of those wrinkles and fine lines with ease.

Radiesse – An Effective Injectable Treatment

Radiesse is a minimally invasive dermal filler that helps fill in fine lines and wrinkles, giving you smoother skin. Radiesse is especially effective in smoothing over lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose like the harsh nasolabial folds.

When our skin loses elasticity as it ages, it can lead to sagging skin. We can also sometimes lose volume in our cheeks, making them look hollow. Radiesse can help restore some of that lost volume. It restores contours to your face, making it look more youthful.

Radiesse is especially useful when it comes to growing new collagen. Collagen is a natural protein found in your skin. It is responsible for giving your skin its elasticity and keeping it smooth.

As we age, the production of collagen slows down, causing our skin to lose its elasticity. Radiesse is a filler that’s made up of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite. The chemical is suspended in a gel, and when the gel is absorbed by the body after it has been injected into the skin, the calcium hydroxylapatite remains behind, causing your body to produce collagen to fill in the gaps that the gel left behind.

Reasons to Come In for Radiesse Treatment

There are numerous benefits to getting a Radiesse treatment. Radiesse is used to treat deep wrinkles like the nasolabial folds, frown lines, marionette lines, and parentheses lines. You can leave looking more youthful and healthier after a single Radiesse treatment.

Here are some of the benefits that Radiesse has to offer:

• The results of a treatment can be noticed almost immediately after the first treatment itself.

• Although some other fillers can achieve the same results as Radiesse, they don’t last nearly as long. The effects of Radiesse can stay visible for a year or longer.

• Radiesse treatment allows the skin to produce new collagen on its own, making results look natural.

• The whole treatment only lasts for around 15 minutes, so you can make an appointment and have it done during a lunch break! It’s ideal for people with a busy schedule.

• While many leading fillers require numerous appointments for the effects to kick in, Radiesse only requires a few injections before it starts working.

• Radiesse has a very natural composition, which means that there is very little risk of an allergic reaction or of your body rejecting the substance.
