Radiesse is an injectable filler used to remove wrinkles and saggy skin. It is injected in the folded areas of the face to plump up wrinkled or loose skin. It works by stimulating collagen underneath the skin to give the skin a youthful look. Most Radiesse injections are done on the skin around the eyes, mouth, and neck. Most people whose skin folds due to age benefit from Radiesse. However, it is also used for facial reconstruction procedures.
Radiesse procedures are outpatient procedures that take less than an hour. You can walk into the doctor’s office, receive your treatment and go home for the recovery. The doctor determines the area where the treatment is required. He then injects local anesthesia to numb the skin. The area is cleaned with antiseptic, and the doctor injects the Radiesse. You go and recover at home. After a week, you can expect to experience the results. Here are the benefits of getting Radiesse injections.
If you are looking to improve your appearance for a short time, Radiesse is your go-to. The procedure takes less than an hour, with even less downtime. You walk into the doctor’s office, and within no time, you are good to go. You do not have to miss days of work before and after the procedure.
Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, Radiesse injections are minimally invasive. They do not interfere with your daily schedule. The injections are done under local anesthesia, so you do not have to brave the pain. You may experience swelling, scabbing, bruising, and itching during the healing process, but for a short while.
Before you are injected with any dermal filler, it is wise to do an allergy test first. The good thing with Radiesse is that it uses components that are naturally present in the body. With the proper injection, the collagen injected blends with the collagen in the body. Therefore, there is a low probability of getting an allergic reaction from Radiesse injections.
Radiesse injections deal with multiple cosmetic fixes. With this, you can fix fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and deep scars. Radiesse is not just a dermal filler. It can be used to soften scars. Some doctors mold it and use it for facial reconstruction. People with irregular or sunken jawline can benefit from it. It can be used for nose contouring, as well.
With other facelift procedures, you may have to take a few days to rest and recover. With this procedure, you do not have to deal with bandages during recovery. With Radiesse injections, you can continue to live your best life after the procedure. A few days off the hot sun and swimming pools are recommended to prevent infections. You can resume your vigorous exercise and work in a week, which is a short time compared to other procedures.
