Over time, as we age, our skin ages too. It loses its elasticity and firmness which makes way for wrinkles, skin indentions and folds, and just loose saggy skin. Fortunately, there are many available treatments in order to turn back time and get that youthful look again – smoother, tighter skin with less visible lines and folds.
One of the best non-invasive treatments available is getting a Radiesse injection. Radiesse injection is an FDA approved wrinkle filler that can plump up the skin again giving it that youthful appearance and feel, and remedy sagging skin by replacing the volume that it has lost in aging. It immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen with results that can last a year or more in many patients
Before and After Procedure
The Radiesse injection can dramatically transform your face as it can also be used in cheek enhancement, chin reshaping, lip augmentation, and hand rejuvenation. What is even more impressive about Radiesse injection is the fact that the treatment is not for cosmetic purposes only. It can also be used to treat those who suffer from vocal chord insufficiency, and those with mouth or jaw defects.
Frequently Asked Questions
As what we have already shared above, Radiesse is an FDA approved wrinkle filler. It is non-invasive and non-surgical. Its main component is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. The calcium in these microspheres are the same kind of calcium produced by our body, found in our bones. Hence, the filler is biocompatible, which means that it can be safely absorbed by our body over time. The Radiesse injection is also not animal-based, which makes allergic reactions very rare.
A thorough consultation is needed to be done before the treatment. We value our patients here at Setiba Group and we want to provide them with accurate results every single time. The secret is behind our consultation where we determine the exact needs and aesthetic goals of the patient so that we can devise a treatment plan making sure that we get the best outcome with the least downtime possible.
During this time, we will also be able to answer any concern or question from the patient regarding the procedure like post-treatment care or possible side effects.
After the consultation, our certified injection specialist will mark the areas of injection on the patient’s skin. Radiesse with lidocaine (a form of anaesthetic) is already available so a topical anaesthetic is usually not required anymore, but may be provided if necessary.
Then the treatment begins as our certified injection specialist injects the precise amount of Radiesse filler needed under the skin’s dermal layer. The entire treatment can be finished under an hour and requires no downtime, which means that the patient can resume his or her normal daily acitivities right after the treatment.
The results will already be visible immediately after the treatment, and as time progresses, Radiesse will also stimulate the skin’s natural production of collagen resulting in prolonged results or smooth and tighter youthful skin.
