Using Radiesse to Fill Deep Facial FoldsPublished on February 28, 2017 by Tal Roudner
Many people wish they could look more youthful. If you want to look as young as you feel, you may be interested in a Radiesse treatment. This state-of-the-art technique is used to fill in laugh lines and deep facial wrinkles and folds without surgery.
Facial Wrinkles and Folds
Radiesse is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to even out many moderate and deep wrinkles, including the harsh nasolabial folds, commonly known as laugh lines. These wrinkles extend from the corners of the nose down to the corners of the mouth.
This filler is an excellent choice for treatment of frown lines, marionette lines extending down from the corners of the mouth, and certain facial scars. It can also be used to restore volume in areas that appear gaunt or hollow, including the cheeks.
Candidates for Radiesse Treatment
• Stay away from Radiesse treatments if you suffer from severe allergies or are allergic to drugs that contain lidocaine.
• Avoid getting Radiesse treatments if you are breastfeeding or pregnant.
• People with bleeding disorders should choose alternative treatments to Radiesse.
• If you have a pre-existing skin condition or infection, Radiesse may not be for you.
What to Expect During the Procedure
The Radiesse injection procedure is quick and can be completed within 15 to 30 minutes. At the start, the treatment areas are carefully marked as a guide to the injector. Following this, local anesthesia may be administered to numb the treatment regions. Alternatively, lidocaine may be combined with the dermal filler ahead of time.
Injections of the Radiesse filler are then administered to the targeted lines and wrinkles of the face. Because Radiesse treats moderate and harsh facial folds, these injections must go deeper than those of many other fillers. They reach past the epidermal and dermal skin layers down to the hypodermal layer, correcting imperfections on a deep level.
After Your Radiesse Treatment
Following your Radiesse treatment, you will be able to return to your usual daily schedule. This is a sharp contrast to surgical procedures, which can require a fair amount of downtime for healing. Because Radiesse does not require a healing period, it is quite convenient, especially for busy professionals.
It is important that patients keep out of the sun for at least 24 hours after Radiesse treatment. It is also important to avoid being exposed to heat treatments until any redness and swelling have subsided.
When injected into deep folds and wrinkles, the Radiesse dermal filler can offer lasting improvements for up to a year or longer. Not only do patients see immediate results, they also notice the gradual improvement of these results over time.
