Aging is a natural part of the life cycle. But at times, you may see wrinkles and fine lines appearing sooner than you'd like due to several reasons. Stress, hormonal imbalance, smoking, pollution, exposure to the harmful UV rays are some of the reasons why skin ages. We can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and reverse the signs of aging. Radiesse is an FDA approved volumizing dermal filler used to fill out deep wrinkles. It is a cosmetic skin treatment for wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose. It can also be used to treat the wrinkles on the back of your hand caused by lost volume, and areas of fat loss in the face as well. Radiesse is made of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which is suspended in a gel.
CaHA is like the calcium found in your teeth and bone which contains ions of phosphate and calcium that are naturally occurring in the body. CaHA stimulates the body’s natural collagen, a protein found abundantly in the body. It gives structure to bones, muscles, skin, and other connective tissues. Oftentimes, your body loses collagen due to aging or other factors. Radiesse is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. The filler works to add volume under the skin by stimulating the body’s natural collagen, which allows the skin to produce fillers of its own. Over a period, CaHA is absorbed back in the body leaving the collagen in its place.
Radiesse smooths moderate to smooth wrinkles and folds like nasolabial folds. It has multiple benefits as listed below:
Radiesse can also be used to treat deep scars, wrinkles, folds and to give volume under the facial skin and hands.
Treatment begins with a consultation with one of our highly experienced aesthetic injectors who will determine whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. Based on your consultation, your provider will formulate a customized treatment plan that will include the number of treatments needed to achieve the desired results. On the day of the treatment, the treatment area is cleaned with an antiseptic and treatment areas are marked. A topical anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area to reduce any discomfort caused by the treatment. Your provider at St. George Med Spa will inject Radiesse using a thin needle at the treatment area. The number of injections required will depend on your consultation. You will be given post-treatment care instructions to follow to avoid any side effects.
Every treatment differs from others and every case is approached on an individual basis. While some treatments may work wonders for a certain individual, other treatments might work better for different people. It is important to know whether you are an ideal candidate for a procedure, whether the side effects will affect you more, or if you will benefit from the treatment.
