Radiesse is an injectable filler that fills in folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth to make them look much less visible. It is preferred by people who want to avoid surgical downtime. If you want to get rid of wrinkles, folds, and scars, consider treatment with Radiesse in Mountain View.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse, previously known as Radiance, is a biocompatible filler injected under the skin to help lines and wrinkles disappear. It can smooth away deep lines around the mouth and nose and fill in areas of the face that have sagged or lost shape over time. Radiesse is also a filler for the backs of the hands to restore lost volume.
What makes Radiesse different from other fillers is its composition. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in an aqueous gel. Not only does it instantly create new volume and structure, it also stimulates collagen production. The more collagen your body produces, the smoother and more elastic your skin becomes.
Is Radiesse Right for Me?
The typical candidates for Radiesse are patients between 35 and 60 years old with deep wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. Candidates also include those who want to plump up their hands and add volume to the hollow parts of their faces due to aging.
You should not get Radiesse injections if you have bleeding disorders or allergies to any of the product’s components, including lidocaine. Pregnant or nursing women are not allowed to underdo Radiesse treatments.
Your Radiesse Consultation
Before Radiesse injections can be administered, you will need to arrange a consultation. We will discuss your medical history, including current medications, to avoid problems such as bruising or excessive bleeding. Warfarin, aspirin, and other medications that thin the blood must be avoided. You should also tell your doctor about any pre-existing health conditions and allergies.
Don’t hesitate to ask questions about how to prepare for the treatment, how to best care for your skin immediately after the treatment, and how much Radiesse will cost.
During a Radiesse session, we will determine the ideal injection sites and the right amount of Radiesse for the patient’s goals. Radiesse is then injected under the skin’s dermis and subcutis layer.
Radiesse is often administered with local anesthesia to help avoid pain during the injection process. The injections may last up to 15 minutes, and the patient will need antiseptic afterward. The patient can go home a few minutes after the treatment.
The Recovery Process
After Radiesse, no recovery time or downtime will be needed, and you can go right back to your regular routine. You may notice minimal swelling after Radiesse, but it will go down after 24 to 36 hours. You may also feel temporary minor discomfort. You will need to protect yourself from the sun.
You may notice the results of Radiesse immediately after getting the treatment. These results may last up to two years or longer before you need to come in for a maintenance treatment.
The Cost of Radiesse
Radiesse cost is different for every patient. Price varies based on the amount of product needed and the areas that require injections.
