Replenish Volume, Stimulate Collagen, and Regain a Youthful Appearance with Radiesse!
The natural loss of volume and elasticity as we age results in the formation of those pesky lines and wrinkles and eventual sagging. Luckily, there are injectable treatments available that offer great results in stimulating collagen production to effectively smooth lines and wrinkles, contour the features of the face, and regain a more youthful appearance. One remarkable collagen stimulator that produces consistently crowd-pleasing results is Radiesse®, the first FDA-approved collagen stimulator for the face and hands.
How does Radiesse work?
Though most fillers on the market today contain hyaluronic acid, Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a mineral-like compound found naturally in your bones. Radiesse produces very natural results with a low risk of side effects. Upon injection, the Radiesse CaHA gel particles integrate into your skin and stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin. Radiesse is the first CaHA filler available that provides both immediate, natural-looking results and long-term improvement.
What areas can be treated with Radiesse?
Radiesse has shown to be effective at treating the following areas:
- Deep smile lines (aka nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines
- Corners of the mouth that are downturned
- Pre-jowl folds on either side of the chin
- Chin wrinkles
- Lost volume in the hands
If you’re concerned with any of these areas, then Radiesse may be the solution you’ve been searching for. A consultation at Vibrant Med is your first step to finding out if Radiesse is right for you.
Am I a candidate for Radiesse?
If you’re concerned with lines and wrinkles in any of the aforementioned areas or you wish to contour the beautiful features of your face, then Radiesse may be a great option for you. Radiesse has shown to consistently offer benefits for people of many ages and skin types. For individuals showing more advanced signs of skin laxity, however, more invasive treatment options may be needed to produce the desired outcome. Our team at Vibrant Med will be glad to go over all your available options and help you determine the best course of action to attain your aesthetic goals.
Do Radiesse injections require any downtime? Are there any side effects?
Radiesse injections don’t typically require any downtime, so most patients get right back to their normal routines the same day as treatment. We do recommend that you avoid any strenuous physical activity for about 24-48 hours after your injections, however. That helps to minimize any swelling or bruising, which are common temporary side effects of fillers. Other common side effects from Radiesse injections may include redness, mild discomfort, and itching at the site of injection. These are most often mild in nature and resolve fairly quickly.
How long do the results of Radiesse last?
The natural-looking results last a year or more for many patients. Some even enjoy up to two years of results! Once the effects wear off, you can choose to repeat treatment to maintain your results.
