What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler treatment that has the unique ability to stimulate the body’s collagen production in addition to restoring volume to the skin. In contrast, most dermal fillers simply restore volume which is then absorbed by the body in the following months. With Radiesse®, after the formula is injected you’ll notice an instant boost in skin volume. As the body breaks down and absorbs the Radiesse® formula, collagen production increases. This collagen is used to replace the Radiesse® formula until only your natural collagen remains. This leaves clients with results that last much longer than other dermal filler treatments.
What is Hyperdilute Radiesse® and How is it Different?
Hyperdilute Radiesse® is simply Radiesse® that is thinned out with a mixture of saline and lidocaine. This diluted mixture is then injected superficially under skin, acting as a skin rejuvenation treatment rather than a volumizer. The skin rejuvenating effects from this treatment are pronounced and visible, with collagen and elastin production starting as early as 4 weeks after injection. This results in long term skin tightening and reduction of fine lines, crepiness, and skin laxity. The tone, elasticity and pliability of skin is markedly improved.
Hyper-diluted Radiesse can also be used to treat cellulite. By injecting hyper-diluted Radiesse into areas with moderate to severe cellulite, the skin is plumped out, reducing the appearance of dimpling. One to three treatment sessions one month apart may be needed in the first year to achieve optimal aesthetic effects with maintenance of one treatment every year to 18 months.
Areas that can be treated:
- Mid and lower face
- Upper inner arms
- Buttocks, including cellulite
This treatment can be used in combination fillers, lasers and other treatments to give you the best outcome. One of our medical professionals will discuss a custom treatment plan with you to achieve your desired results. You may experience mild bruising, swelling and some minimal discomfort after treatment, however most clients tolerate this treatment very well and are very satisfied with their results.
What are the Benefits of Radiesse®?
Radiesse® can be used to treat both the face & body, restoring volume to rejuvenate the appearance. There are many benefits to receiving Radiesse® treatments with the medical professionals at ÉLAN Aesthetics, including improvements to the following areas:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Pre-jowl folds
- Corners of the mouth
- Chin wrinkles
- Back of the hands
How is Radiesse® Administered?
The Radiesse® treatment is a simple injection that begins with the numbing of the skin. Ice or a topical anesthetic may be used to numb the area where the Radiesse® formula will be injected. A medical professional will then inject the appropriate amount of Radiesse® into the treatment area, delivering instant results. The full Radiesse® treatment takes less than 30 minutes to perform. After receiving the Radiesse® treatment, you might experience some minor redness, swelling or bruising in the treatment area. This is common after an injectable treatment, and you can expect these symptoms to resolve within a few days. Despite these minor side effects, you can return to your normal lifestyle and activities immediately with no downtime whatsoever.
What Results Can I Expect from Radiesse®?
The results from Radiesse® will be visible immediately upon injection, as the Radiesse® formula instantly restores volume to the skin to rejuvenate the appearance. These results will become more noticeable as any side effects fade. In the months following treatment, the Radiesse® formula will interact with the body to stimulate natural collagen production, allowing collagen to gradually replace the Radiesse® formula. Thanks to this benefit, you can expect the results from your Radiesse® treatment to last up to two years or longer.
