With a Radiesse treatment, you can achieve more facial volume and lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Radiesse not only adds immediate volume to the target area, it also continues to work beneath the skin to increase collagen production.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a facial filler that works beneath the skin to promote collagen production and soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Collagen is essential to the skin’s structure and volume and can be lost as a result of time and age. Using a Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHa) formula, Radiesse can replenish the skin for a youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Radiesse might be an effective treatment option for you if you experience one or more of the following concerns:
• Smile lines between the nose and mouth
• Laugh lines around the mouth
• Pre-jowl folds alone the jawline
• Lines or folds in the corners of the mouth
• Chin wrinkles
In some cases, Radiesse can also be used to treat the hands to restore lost volume, minimize the visibility of veins and tendons, and improve signs of aging.
Your Customized Procedure
Before treatment with Radiesse, you will have a consultation with Dr. Cooper where you will discuss your areas of concern and goals for treatment. Dr. Cooper will then decide if Radiesse is the right option for you and present a customized treatment plan depending on your needs.
At your appointment for Radiesse treatment, Dr. Cooper can apply a topical anesthetic to improve your comfort during the process. Next, he will use a very thin needle to place Radiesse gel into the treatment area. The duration of this process will depend on the severity of your problem areas.
I have to say my first experience with Dr Cooper and his staff was extremely professional, courteous, and put me at ease from the moment my consult started. I have been back for several things and have been completely thrilled with my outcome each time. I recommend Dr. Cooper to friends and family all the time. – P.W.
What to Expect from Radiesse
Immediately after treatment, you might experience some mild swelling and discomfort that will subside within a few days. Normal activity can be resumed, but avoidance of sun exposure is recommended for the first day after treatment.
Unlike other collagen stimulators, Radiesse gel provides immediate results for added volume and reduced wrinkles. Over time, these results will continue to show as your body absorbs the CaHa formula and the natural collagen production process is stimulated. Patients report satisfaction with their results for up to a year. Additional treatment sessions can be given to optimize or maintain results.
