Immediate and Real Results with Radiesse
know aging is a part of life and in many regards, aging is quite fabulous. I
mean, does anyone really want to go back to their high school days? Pimples,
bus stops, getting teased for the outfits we were wearing. I know I personally
would be happy if I never had to look at (or hear about) a yearbook again.
and physically we mature, learn, grow, fall in love, make new friends ... before we
know it, we start to see our skin maturing and looking older. We may like
ourselves better, but we start looking at our skin differently. We experience
our skin becoming dull, less vibrant and less youthful. Collagen, elastin and
hyaluronic acid become less plentiful, resulting in facial lines, wrinkles and
working in aesthetics for many years now, but it wasn't until recently that I
turned thirty. To my teenage cousin I am ancient, to my eighty-something year
old patient I am a baby. One thing is for sure, I finally understand why aesthetic
offices are so busy. We love growing up, but we really don't love the idea of
I see treatments
that work to help facial rejuvenation and treatments that just have false promises.
In many cases, to erase lines and folds we must replace lost structure with
volume. This is not something accomplished overnight with a facial or a fancy
spa day. I have seen this accomplished though, pretty instantaneously, with fillers.
particular that I am gaining more experience with is Radiesse. In the case of
Radiesse, the filler offers immediate and lasting volume. Radiesse is a filler,
or facial volumizer, composed of calcium hydroxylapatite. Like other
fillers, Radiesse acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and
stimulating natural collagen to grow. This collagen production continues
for several months, which extends even beyond the initial effect of
the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving
behind only your own natural collagen. Results are natural and long lasting -
clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.
It is a
great choice for building up cheekbones nicely; volumizing deeper nasolabial
folds; augmenting chins and nasal regions. It gives a really nice lifting
effect - especially when patients want filler in the nasolabial area only and
you can show them that by addressing the mid face it will improve the lower
face without a single injection there.
put, this filler can truly rejuvenate your entire face with one simple in-office
procedure. I like my patients and I really like happy patients with incredible
results. We are seeing both with Radiesse.
work with this filler? What other filler or treatments do you do in
combination? We are using it in conjunction with many of the HAs (for more
superficial lines/voluminzing) and it works beautifully. I would love your
