Replace Facial Volume with a Safe Dermal Filler
Cosmetic surgery is not the only way to revitalize the face; dermal fillers and injectable products are capable of achieving many of the same objectives as a facelift. Dermal fillers in particular can add volume and contour to the face, helping it look more rested, relaxed, and youthful. Radiesse® is one of the exceptional dermal fillers offered at the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center . If you'd like to learn more about non-surgical methods of facial rejuvenation, including injectable products like Radiesse®, please contact our Phoenix office locations today, located in Sun City, Wickenburg, and Sun City West.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that replaces facial volume to smooth out signs of aging. Radiesse® is composed of calcium-based microspheres which are very similar to naturally occurring minerals in your body. The microspheres are suspended in a water-based gel. They provide volume and lift in areas of the face that have been depleted of collagen or lost flexibility because of aging. Radiesse® also stimulates the production of natural collagen, which makes the results even more long-lasting.
Radiesse® is administered through a series of injections to the target areas of the face. Because of its unique properties, Radiesse® is ideal for treating wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth, including the nasolabial folds. Radiesse® may be mixed with lidocaine for an anesthetizing effect. The filler plumps up skin, smoothing wrinkles, lines, and furrows, as the microspheres begin to stimulate the production of collagen. Results with Radiesse® treatment should be almost immediately visible! Dr. Justo has found that results may last up to a year - and even longer!
After treatment, patients may see redness, swelling, or bruising; this is normal and should subside within a few days. If side effects persist, they could be signs of an infection, and we encourage you to contact our medical team for guidance.
Radiesse For Hands
Radiesse is the first dermal tissue filler FDA approved to use on hands. Our Certified Aesthetic Laser Nurse Roxanne Dorty has immediate success in making hands softer, smoother and more youthful after a five-minute procedure. Just like with the face, the filler plumps the skin, smooths wrinkles, and stimulates the production of collagen.
Benefits of Radiesse®
Collagen is important to the skin's vitality; it provides volume, flexibility, and strength. But collagen breaks down as part of the aging process, causing the skin to lose volume, and the formation of lines, creases, and furrows. Products like Radiesse® are in high demand because they stimulate the production of new collagen. This is a process that lasts several months, so the effects of Radiesse® last longer than other injectables. In addition to the stimulation of collagen production, benefits of Radiesse® include:
- Treatment is quick, comfortable, and convenient
- Natural-looking results
- FDA-approved for safety
- Little to no downtime
- Treatment can be performed during a lunch break from work
- Reduced risk of allergic reaction
- Not an animal-based product
