It is an unfortunate fact of life that as we get older, our appearance will inevitably begin to change in unwelcome ways. Fine lines and wrinkles, skin folds and rough skin texture begin to make their presence known. These effects can even lead to further problems, like embarrassment, depression and anxiety.
Another common effect of the aging process is lost facial volume. This development is usually seen by the time a person has reached their forties and causes hollows under the eyes and cheeks. It is due to the loss of fat underneath the skin that the skin loses its elasticity.
The end result can often leave you looking older than you actually feel. Some people are affected negatively by this change in terms of their relationships and even their jobs, as lost facial volume can make you appear tired and less energetic.
Dermal fillers like Radiesse® are an effective treatment for the loss of facial volume. They work by injecting gels or solutions into the skin, which lends a plumping effect to the area. The result is skin that appears tighter and fuller and displays fewer signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a type of dermal filler that works by adding volume to smooth away moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. It consists of advanced microspheres inside a watery gel. The microspheres are calcium-based and resemble naturally occurring minerals found in the body, which means the chances of having an allergic reaction to the treatment are low.
Eventually, the body will metabolize or absorb the injected microspheres and leave only natural collagen behind. Collagen is important because it is one of the main ingredients in the formation of healthy, youthful skin.
After Radiesse® is injected, your skin is volumized, which leads to a smoother skin surface. The treatment gradually triggers your body into producing more collagen.
Radiesse® is Unique
The reason why Radiesse® is a special treatment is because it is the sole dermal filler made from calcium-based microspheres that trigger your body into the natural production of collagen. Collagen helps provides mass and structure to the skin, leading to a plumping effect.
Studies have found that those treated with Radiesse® had a greater rate of satisfaction with their significant results than those treated with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Any side effects from a Radiesse® treatment tend to be very mild in nature and fade very quickly.
