Did you know that a simple, minimally invasive treatment can help you achieve healthy, youthful-looking skin? Radiesse, a dermal filler offered by Worcester Dermatology in Worcester, MA, can smooth facial wrinkles and folds, including those in delicate areas near the eyes and mouth. This dermal filler can also be used to address wrinkling and discoloration on the hands, which are also commonly affected by the aging process.
Does Radiesse Really Work?
If you’re ready to turn back the clock and achieve glowing, more radiant skin, this treatment is for you. Like other dermal fillers, it smooths over wrinkles and restores the youthful contours of the face. But Radiesse goes a step farther and actually stimulates the body’s production of collagen, a protein that helps keep skin hydrated, plump, and supple.
That means your skin will become healthier and more radiant during the months after your treatment as your body produces its own natural filler. Radiesse really does work, and our patients rave about the results they’ve gotten with this filler.
How Does It Work?
Radiesse is a water-based gel that has Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in it. Once it has been injected beneath the skin, this filler provides immediate support and helps fill in creases and folds. The gel also serves as a framework for collagen to grow on during the months after treatment. Once it’s done the work of spurring collagen production and helping the skin renew itself, this filler safely and naturally dissolves.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The longevity of this treatment’s results varies between patients, but many individuals enjoy their results for a year or more. And when your results start to wear off, you’ll have the option of scheduling a follow-up injection. The longevity of this treatment makes it a terrific option for patients who don’t want to deal with frequent maintenance sessions.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Dermal filler injections are a quick and straightforward treatment performed in the comfort of our office. We’ll begin by cleansing the treatment area and applying a topical anesthetic, and we may make a few light marks on your skin that we’ll use as reference points during your session. You may feel a slight prick as we perform the injection, but most patients are surprised at how easy this treatment is.
Most appointments take less than 30 minutes, and you’ll be able to get right back to your regular schedule afterward.
What Specific Cosmetic Concerns Can This Address?
This filler is ideal for addressing expression lines on the forehead and around the mouth and eyes, and also for filling in cheek and under-eye hollows. This filler is also frequently used to rejuvenate the backs of the hands.
What Advantages Are Associated With This Treatment?
An Easy, Minimally Invasive Treatment
Although dermal fillers can significantly rejuvenate a patient’s look, these treatments are minimally invasive and require no downtime. The needles used to inject fillers are fine and the treatment is gentle on the skin. We’ll develop a custom treatment for you once we’ve had a chance to evaluate your skin, but most patients need only a few targeted injections to accomplish their cosmetic goals.
Because this filler will spur your body to renew itself on its own by producing more collagen, your results will look completely natural. And because that collagen production will happen gradually, you’ll never look as though you suddenly went and had a cosmetic treatment performed.
Many other dermal fillers last eight or nine months, but Radiesse can last a year or more. If you keep a tight schedule, or if you simply don’t want to worry about frequent follow-up treatments, this dermal filler may be an especially good choice.
This dermal filler is made from ingredients that occur naturally in the body, making it a non-allergenic option.
This dermal filler has been approved by the FDA and has been safely and widely used on a variety of patients.
It Can Be Combined With Other Services
Depending on your aesthetic goals, we can develop a customized treatment plan for you that incorporates other cosmetic services. Dermal filler patients frequently opt to incorporate botulinum toxin injections, laser skin resurfacing, and other services into their treatment plans. We can advise you on the timing and proper scheduling of these treatments.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
If you’re interested in pursuing dermal fillers, the first step is to schedule an initial consultation with the friendly professionals at our practice. During this session, we’ll review your medical history, evaluate your skin, and talk with you about your cosmetic goals. We’ll work with you to determine if Radiesse is the best treatment option for you. There are several signs you may be an especially good candidate.
You Desire a More Youthful Appearance
Any patient who is not satisfied with their appearance, and who is bothered by signs of aging including skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, and hollows under the eyes or in the cheek area, is a good candidate for this treatment.
Your Skin Is Healthy
For us to perform this treatment, the skin around the injection site should be free of infection and inflammation. If the skin is broken or distressed, we may ask you to reschedule your treatment.
You’re in Good Overall Health
The best patients are in fairly good general health and are often somewhere between the ages of 35 and 65.
