Everything You Need to Know About RADIESSE®
It’s completely understandable to want to have a more youthful-looking, yet still natural, appearance. And when it comes to finding a dermal filler that does just that and so much more with instantaneous results, you should consider RADIESSE®. Dr. Sofonio is well-versed in providing these effective injectables that provide dramatic, long-lasting results for overall skin rejuvenation. Take a moment to learn more about RADIESSE to see if it may be right for you.
RADIESSE is an FDA approved dermal filler that treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles, as well as facial folds. It can also be used as a volume corrector for the loss of volume in the back of your hands. RADIESSE provides lift to smile lines, pre-jowl folds, mouth corners, and chin wrinkles, so it’s often used for lower face-lifts. This wrinkle filler provides immediate results, which is one of the reasons why it’s extremely popular.
RADIESSE is made up of CaHA microspheres, which are kept inside of a liquid gel. It’s injected into the skin using a small needle and immediately starts to work by providing volume and correcting any wrinkles and folds at the point of injection. On top of that, it also encourages your body to start producing its own collagen. But the results last beyond that. Your body continues to absorb the gel and water, providing a radiant, youthful look, and as your body metabolizes the CaHA, you’ll be left with just your own 100% natural collagen.
Dr. Sofonio recommends RADIESSE to patients who are looking for immediate results. As soon as he places RADIESSE under your skin, you’ll start to see the results as your wrinkles are smoothened out. It’s also been shown in clinical studies to last for over a year, and RADIESSE has been FDA approved to be mixed with lidocaine. Lidocaine is an anesthetic that makes the injections much less painful. Essentially, if you’re looking for a treatment option that provides instant, visible results while simultaneously providing a natural look that will last for a long time, consider asking Dr. Sofonio about RADIESSE.
Is RADIESSE® an option for me?
Almost anyone can use RADIESSE and see the results as soon as they leave Dr. Sofonio’s office. However, if you have severe allergies or anaphylaxis, you should not use this treatment. You should also not use RADIESSE if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to any of the products in this dermal filler. Beyond that, anyone can use RADIESSE and have instant results! The procedure takes approximately a half hour and only requires topical anesthesia to minimize any discomfort felt before the injection is given. You may experience some redness or temporary swelling and bruising. Results should last for well over a year with some minor correction. If you have any other questions about RADIESSE and want to find out if this is the right dermal filler for a face-lift or general skin rejuvenation, Dr. Sofonio would be more than happy to answer any questions.
