Radiesse® is an anti-aging injectable dermal filler that restores the fullness of youth to the face and neck. Radiesse® is a gel that is made up of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite. No allergy testing is needed because our bodies already contain this substance.
Besides acting as a filler, Radiesse® also stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen. Therefore, the results are gradual over a period of months after the injections. Since the change is not abrupt, the procedure is rarely detectable by friends and family. Of course, it is Dr. Dutton’s aim to provide you with a natural look that would never cause anyone to suspect you had a cosmetic procedure.
Benefits of Radiesse®
- Moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Sagging mouth corners
- Hollowed cheek and chin areas
Radiesse® is also able to support the structure of the skin, reducing further sagging.
The Radiesse® Procedure
Radiesse® injections are a simple and quick procedure. They contain numbing Lidocaine to prevent discomfort, and the needle is small. Based on the results you want and our experience with Radiesse®, Dr. Dutton will place the injections in a way that will add volume in the desired areas and sculpt your face for a younger appearance.
While length of results vary, Radiesse® injections can last as long as a year.
Radiesse® Injection Recovery
No downtime is required after Radiesse® injections, and you can go right back to work and apply makeup. You may experience some minor inflammation and bruising for a few days, however. Small lumps at the injection sites may also develop. These are not generally visible, and they resolve quickly. If swelling is a problem, you can elevate your head with pillows the first few nights and use an ice pack, if necessary.
Radiesse® is a safe, non-invasive procedure for looking younger quickly. It is usually recommended for older patients with deeper lines, wrinkles, and sagging of facial skin.
