There are lots of reasons to consider an injectable treatment with Radiesse, like how it actually helps your body rebuild itself with collagen! It’s safe too, so you can be sure your treatment will be harmless. You can also expect long lasting effects! We provide the treatment here at Dr. Chow’s Rejuvenation Center, so contact us today if you’re interested in seeing a Radiesse injection specialist in Lee’s Summit, MO!
Does Radiesse really build collagen?
Radiesse can be used on a patient’s hands or face where it will simulate the collagen there as well as the body’s production of collagen in the area. This collagen helps to fill in wrinkles and folds and keep them full in the long term, giving a more youthful appearance. Typically, the treatment is done in areas like around the mouth, around the nose, and other areas of the face where fat loss occurs. It can also be done for the back of your hands.
After a Radiesse injection, the calcium hydroxyapatite in the gel starts working. The gel fills in the volume you want, but over time, the calcium hydroxyapatite stimulates your naturally-occurring collagen and collagen production, and this collagen is the body’s natural filler! Eventually, the calcium hydroxyapatite absorbs into the body but leaves the collagen. More collagen means more volume in the area.
What are the side effects of Radiesse?
It’s widely considered that Radiesse is nontoxic and hypoallergenic. There are, however, some minor risks with the treatment, but for most patients, the risks are negligible. Possible side effects may be pain, swelling, difficulty with movement, sensation loss, itching, redness, bruising, and infection at the site of injection. These side effects are shared between most injectables in the market. So long as an injection is done properly and professionally, there should be no problems. Ask a professional about whether Radiesse is right for you; there’s a very good chance it will be! Be sure to mention any allergies you have, though, as this is relevant information.
How long does Radiesse last?
One of the amazing things about Radiesse is that results are visible immediately after treatment! You can almost certainly expect to see results, and you can expect them to get even better over a week. After that, the full results will be visible. Results vary between patients, but you can expect to see them, and you can be optimistic about getting good results.
You can also expect the results of your Radiesse treatment to last for the long-term, possibly up to two full years! After that, you just get another treatment, and you can prolong your look for as long as you like. To help you prolong your look, minor maintenance treatments may be a good idea for you.
