Smooth Lines & Wrinkles With RADIESSE®
RADIESSE® is a filler that is injected into the skin to smooth wrinkled or folded regions, most often on the face. RADIESSE® works by stimulating the collagen that naturally occurs beneath your skin. It works immediately and can last up to two years, making it a popular choice for dermal filling. It is most commonly used to the skin around the nose. Some people choose this technique to smooth out wrinkles in their hands. We use a small needle to deliver injections under the skin. RADIESSE® has harmless, nonallergenic chemicals that are compatible with your body’s natural tissues.
The team at Tru-Skin Dermatology is happy to help administer RADIESSE® treatment to clients throughout Central Texas. Learn more about how you can benefit from RADIESSE® and call our office today to schedule your consultation.
Is RADIESSE® Right for Me?
You may benefit from RADIESSE® if you are between the ages of 35 and 60 and have developed folds or wrinkles around your mouth and nose. RADIESSE® can be used to alleviate these marks and features to restore your more youthful appearance. Clients who wish to plump up the skin on their hands are also ideal.
How Does RADIESSE® Work?
RADIESSE® is made up of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres that start working right away after being injected. CaHA is made up of phosphate and calcium ions that are found naturally in the human body.
Initially, the injectable gel does all of the jobs of filling in the desired volume. However, over time, the CaHA promotes your skin’s own collagen, allowing it to manufacture more of its own filler. The hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon in the gel aid in the formation of a connective tissue-like structure. The CaHA eventually absorbs back into the body, leaving your collagen behind. RADIESSE® treatment effects can last well over a year.
What Does the Procedure Look Like?
Our team will numb the site of injection with a local anesthetic prior to the RADIESSE® injection. With each injection, there’s a chance you’ll feel slight discomfort or pain. Lidocaine has been licensed by the FDA to be used in conjunction with RADIESSE® injections to alleviate any discomfort you may experience during the procedure. We adapt our procedure to each client to meet their needs and comfort.
The entire procedure only takes about 15 minutes, depending on your treatment plan and the number of injections you will need. You will not need to spend any time in recovery. Most of our clients stop by during their lunch break and continue on with their day. We’ll work with your schedule to find the best time of the day for your injections.
