Collagen keeps your skin firm and youthful, but over time this substance breaks down. With a product like Radiesse, the doctors at Coastal Empire plastic surgery can stimulate collagen growth.
The result is smoother skin, fewer wrinkles and a more youthful appearance. The results outlast most wrinkle fillers – in many cases they last longer than one year.
What Can Radiesse Treat?
If you’re bothered by signs of aging like wrinkles and folds, you may benefit from Radiesse treatments. After injection, Radiesse stimulates a process called collagenesis that works to correct problems like:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Wrinkles around your mouth
- Puffy, dark bags beneath your eyes
- Flat or hollow cheeks
Radiesse is best for healthy non-smokers who are between the age of 18-65.
How Does Radiesse Treatment Work?
An injection of Radiesse immediately restores volume to the tissue. Your surgeon injects Radiesse into areas that need wrinkle correction. The filler restores volume to sunken areas, reducing the appearance of lines and contour depressions. The results are evident right away, and continue to improve over time.
Because Radiesse is made with special calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, it causes your body to generate more collagen. After your Radiesse treatments, your body will continue to stimulate collagen that improves your appearance.
How Will I Look and Feel After Radiesse?
After Radiesse injections, you may notice some some swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site(s). These will subside in a short time. You should be able to return to your normal routine right away.
