Radiesse is an injectable filler that helps reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. Because it is injected directly into the skin, Radiesse is able to provide the additional volume needed to fill in wrinkles and lines.
It also operates beneath the skin as a type of framework that stimulates your body's natural processes of skin growth and maintenance. Both of these actions combine to create long-lasting results and firmer, fuller, younger-looking skin.
Am I a Candidate For Radiesse Treatment?
The benefits of Radiesse injections include stronger, healthier-looking skin without the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and other naturally occurring signs of skin damage. Any generally healthy individual wishing to reduce or temporarily eliminate these unwanted facial features makes a strong candidate for this treatment. The key is to become as informed as possible, and to fully understand the expected outcomes of such a procedure. If these expectations meet your unique health and body image goals, Radiesse injections may be a good option.
The following conditions may require patients to pursue additional healthcare advice before receiving Radiesse injections:
- History of allergies to any components of Radiesse
- Active skin inflammation at or near injection site
- Active infections at or near injection site
How Radiesse Treatments Work
After consulting with Dr. Benien and any other appropriate healthcare professionals, your Radiesse treatment will consist of an injection to specific facial regions. Once the gel-like substance has penetrated the skin, it provides the additional volume needed to fill in wrinkles and lines. Along with adding volume, Radiesse also contains specific substances designed to stimulate and promote your body's natural processes of building and maintaining healthy layers of skin. This allows for long-lasting results and firmer, healthier, younger-looking skin.
What Happens After Radiesse Treatment?
Immediately following a Radiesse treatment, expect some amount of swelling, redness, or irritation at the injection site. These symptoms are normal and should subside in a few days. Because Radiesse is administered through a simple injection, there is no real recovery process or rehabilitation period.
Many Radiesse patients notice changes to the quality of their skin shortly after receiving the injection, and these results can last for well over a year. Since wrinkles, lines, and other signs of skin damage occur naturally over time, additional Radiesse treatments may become necessary in the future.
Important RADIESSE® Wrinkle Filler Treatment Considerations
Radiesse® wrinkle filler is FDA-approved for subdermal implantation for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. After injection, patients may experience redness, bruising, swelling or other local side effects. Most side effects of treatment resolve within a few days. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer, unevenness or firmness in the area injected, and as with any injection, there may be a risk of infection. Learn more at Radiesse.com
