As the years fly by, you might feel like they are marching across your face. One day you look in the mirror, and those fine lines are turning into something more noticeable. Your nasolabial folds really stand out the most. Known as laugh lines, these creases that run along the side of your mouth from your nose tend to become more pronounced over time. If you do not like what you see when you stare at your reflection, Radiesse® may be a simple solution for your problem.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler. It is injected into the skin of your face to offer more volume, smoothing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and nasolabial folds. It is a temporary fix. However, it does not involve invasive surgery. If you are looking for a less involved approach to deal with the effects of aging that you are facing in the mirror, you should explore the benefits of Radiesse®.
How Can Radiesse® Help You?
As you age, collagen production decreases in your skin, causing your face to lose its elasticity and volume. When you choose a dermal filler like Radiesse®, it is injected into your skin in the areas of concern, such as your nasolabial folds. It goes to work, plumping the skin and softening the lines in your face.
As an added benefit, Radiesse® stimulates your skin’s production of collagen, helping you to improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines through natural processes. Your results could last a year or longer. In some cases, patients have enjoyed the benefits of Radiesse® for more than a year. Each individual responds differently. Once you have the procedure, you will be able to enjoy immediate results.
What to Expect during the Procedure
Radiesse® is injected during an outpatient procedure. The dermal filler is combined with lidocaine in order to numb the skin in the area of injection. Small injections will be made in a short session. After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, tenderness, bruising, or redness. The side effects of Radiesse® treatments generally last a short period. You should avoid putting any pressure on the site of injections. Don’t wear make-up on the injections sites for several days after your procedure.
Are You a Candidate for Radiesse®?
If you have healthy skin and no underlying conditions, such as a bleeding disorder, you could be a good candidate for Radiesse®. Radiesse® is not recommended for anyone with severe allergies, a serious skin condition, or if you are pregnant. You should not have Radiesse® injections if you are breastfeeding.
Discuss the benefits of Radiesse® with your Dr. Edward Zimmerman during your consultation. He can answer any additional questions you may have.
