Seeking a refreshed and youthful appearance is a common desire, and addressing concerns like fine lines and volume loss often leads individuals to consider various treatments. Radiesse is a notable choice, recognized for its immediate volumizing effects and its ability to promote long-term collagen production. This treatment adeptly tackles the signs of facial aging with both precision and subtlety.
At Renuva Medspa in Pittsburgh and Bridgeville, PA, we’re committed to delivering Radiesse treatments with a high level of expertise and an understanding of facial aesthetics. Our focus is on providing personalized care, ensuring each session is tailored to the unique goals of our clients.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a distinctive dermal filler, favored for its dual action in the realm of aesthetic treatments. Unlike conventional fillers, Radiesse not only offers immediate volume enhancement but also acts as a biostimulator, encouraging the natural production of collagen within the skin.
What Is Radiesse Made From?
Radiesse is made with a substance called calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which is biocompatible and mirrors substances found naturally in the body. Suspended in a water-based gel, these CaHA microspheres are the cornerstone of Radiesse’s volumizing and collagen-stimulating prowess.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Upon injection, Radiesse serves as a scaffold, providing immediate structure and volume to the targeted areas. Over time, its role as a biostimulator comes into play, as the CaHA microspheres stimulate the body’s own collagen production, extending the filler’s rejuvenating effects and contributing to a more natural and enduring outcome.
What Are the Benefits of Radiesse?
Immediate and Long-Term Effects
Radiesse filler distinguishes itself by delivering both instantaneous volume upon injection and enduring improvements through natural collagen synthesis. This helps ensure that the initial lifting and contouring are seamlessly complemented by progressive skin revitalization.
Versatility in Applications
Radiesse can be effectively used in various facial areas, which makes it a versatile treatment for many different aesthetic concerns. It is typically used on the lower half of the face, addressing some of the most common signs of aging around the mouth.
Opting for Radiesse comes with the convenience of minimal recovery time. Most individuals can resume their daily activities right after the treatment, making it a practical choice for those seeking effective aesthetic enhancements without significant interruption to their routine.
Treatment Areas for Radiesse
Radiesse injections are specifically designed to target the downturned areas around the mouth known as oral commissures. By restoring volume in this region, Radiesse helps to counteract the appearance of persistent frowning and provides a more neutral, rested expression.
The prominent smile lines, or nasolabial folds, that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth can be effectively softened with Radiesse. This filler smooths out these creases, contributing to a more youthful and cheerful facial demeanor.
Marionette lines, which extend downward from the corners of the mouth, can often give a sagging or unhappy appearance. Radiesse treatment is adept at diminishing these lines, restoring a more balanced and uplifted contour to the lower face.
Radiesse proves beneficial in addressing the often-overlooked area of chin wrinkles. By enhancing the volume and structure in this region, Radiesse can reduce the prominence of chin creasing, contributing to a more harmonious facial profile.
The area on either side of the chin, known as the pre-jowl sulcus, can become more pronounced as volume diminishes with age. Radiesse offers a solution by filling in these folds, helping to recreate the smooth jawline associated with youth and vitality.
FAQs About Radiesse
The longevity of Radiesse filler is one of its most notable attributes, with results typically enduring for a year or more. The biostimulating action of Radiesse continues to promote collagen production well after the initial treatment, prolonging the youthful appearance.
A session of Radiesse treatment is a streamlined process, often completed in far less than an hour. After a consultation to map out the treatment areas, the filler is injected using fine needles or cannulas, with many patients reporting minimal discomfort.
Post-treatment care for Radiesse injections is straightforward. In addition to avoiding NSAIDs and excessive alcohol consumption, patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities for a short period. Sun protection and gentle skincare are also recommended to support the healing process. Avoid touching, scratching, or rubbing the injection sites. Ask your doctor if you have any other questions about the proper post-treatment care.
To extend the effects of Radiesse, maintaining a healthy skin regimen is key. This includes proper hydration, a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, regular use of sunscreen, and avoiding smoking. Additionally, follow-up treatments can be scheduled as recommended by your provider.
