Deep facial folds often make us feel much older than we really are. This cosmetic issue is in no way dangerous, but it leaves many patients self-conscious about their appearance. If this sounds like your own situation, then you might want to consider the injectable known as RADIESSE®. This non-invasive treatment can eradicate facial wrinkles in just minutes and leave patients looking years younger for six months or longer.
When Other Injectables Are Not Enough
The composition of every injectable is slightly different. Most products are based on a substance known as hyaluronic acid. While these products are an excellent option for fine lines in areas with very thin skin, they typically have little or no effect on deeper creases. This includes the lines that run along the side of one’s nose and mouth.
Also referred to as nasolabial folds, this cosmetic issue is incredibly common. For many years, the only treatments for nasolabial folds were invasive surgeries, such as facelifts and cheek implants. Luckily, that has all changed with the release of RADIESSE®.
A Hydroxyapatite Injectable
The primary ingredient of RADIESSE® injections is a substance called hydroxyapatite. This material is both thicker and denser than hyaluronic acid, and that makes it an excellent option for deeper facial lines. Unlike treatments such as BOTOX®, RADIESSE® produces immediate results.
Patients will walk out of the office looking and feeling better than ever. On average, a RADIESSE® appointment will last for around 30 minutes. Most patients require absolutely no anesthetics or painkillers.
Preparing for Your RADIESSE® Appointment
Every patient will need to schedule an initial consultation with our specialist before having this treatment carried out. During this visit, we will ask you about any medical issues that could affect your treatment. We will also need to know about any prescriptions or over-the-counter medications you are taking.
Firm and Toned Skin
Many patients have turned to injectables simply because they do not have the luxury of taking weeks off of work to recover from an invasive surgery. The average person can step out of their appointment and head right back to their daily schedule.
Patients will notice immediate changes to their face, but the full effects might not become apparent for 10 to 14 days. During this time, your body will flood the area with water molecules and begin producing more collagen. A number of different factors will determine how long RADIESSE® lasts, but most patients can expect the results to last for at least six months with the proper aftercare.
