Injections of Radiesse Make Deep Folds Disappear


March 13, 2024

Most people aim to retain or regain their youthful appearance. If you’re one of those people, the Radiesse treatment might just be the perfect solution for you. Radiesse is an advanced technique that helps fill in laugh lines and deep folds without the need for invasive surgery.

Radiesse is the latest in a line of cosmetic dermal fillers and it has been gaining plenty of attention as a result of its ability to last longer than most other dermal fillers available in the market today. It has already started to set standards with regard to the correction of wrinkles and folds. The treatment achieves a youthful and natural look in the easiest manner possible.

There have been several studies conducted to prove the longevity of Radiesse over other dermal filler treatments that are used to correct nasolabial folds around the mouth and nose.

The solution is composed of calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural gel. This gel is injected into the affected areas via a simple procedure.

Some of the key benefits offered by Radiesse include:

• The stimulation of natural collagen production.
• The use of relatively less product compared to other dermal filler treatments.
• Ideal for non-surgical reshaping of the nose.
• Ideal for cheek and chin augmentation.
• Safe to use and provides excellent results

When compared to other dermal fillers, Radiesse boasts a higher level of firmness. This firmness is what allows the results to last longer than most other treatments. With each progressive treatment, the amount of product used is reduced, while the exact same results are achieved.

How Does Radiesse Work

The procedure is very quick and can be completed in a matter of 30 minutes. The first step involves marking the areas that need to be treated. Then, the patient is put under an anesthetic to numb the marked areas. Sometimes, the solution itself is mixed with the dermal filler to achieve localized anesthesia.

The next step involves administering the gel to the targeted areas. Since deep folds are the target, the injection must travel farther than most other fillers. This involves crossing the epidermal and dermal layers to reach the hypodermal layer. Needless to say, this helps correct even the deepest of imperfections.

Now, Radiesse mainly helps stimulate collagen production, which, in turn, initiates tissue regeneration. So, the process actually does more than simply filling up the folds. It actually restructures the very foundations of the skin and the results are almost immediate.

Radiesse is composed of fine calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel. Once injected, the gel, and the microspheres contained within, help create a scaffold and reinvigorates the production of collagen.

This, in turn, stimulates tissue growth in the targeted areas. Over time, your body begins to absorb the gel and replaces it with natural tissue. The microspheres provide the necessary amount of support for the body to generate collagen and new tissue until they also get absorbed.
