If you’re looking for a way to minimize wrinkles and folds in your face, especially the ones around your nose and mouth, Radiesse might be the perfect choice for you. Radiesse is a dermal filler, but it’s different than other fillers because of its unique composition. Here’s what you should know about how Radiesse works.
What Is Radiesse Made Of?
Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that are contained in a water-based gel. The product works in a couple of ways: first, it gives you immediate volume in the treatment areas. Additionally, it goes to work below your skin, in the dermis, where it stimulates you to make your own fresh collagen.
In the coming months, you’ll absorb the gel and metabolize the microspheres, but the new collagen that you made is left behind to give you lasting volume.
Where Can You Get Radiesse?
Radiesse is best suited for the middle and lower face. It’s most effective in your nasolabial folds (the folds around your nose and mouth), marionette lines (the lines going from the corners of the lips to the bottom of the chin), and depressed scars in your middle and lower face.
Radiesse isn’t meant to be used in your lips, but if you want lip plumping Dr. Lee can use another dermal filler like Belotero Balance.
Radiesse can be a great treatment option if you want to reduce or eliminate your lines and wrinkles quickly and easily — and without surgery! Get in touch with the friendly L.A. Vein Center team to make your Radiesse appointment today.
