Over time, the body changes. It is a reality and, unfortunately, in most cases, not for the better. But, luckily, aesthetic medicine continues to revolutionize our days, offering solutions to all our problems. The fear of needles is over, more and more people are interested in this medical industry and the variety of treatments continues to grow.
These are minimally invasive treatments that can improve our appearance and prevent aging without sacrificing naturalness. Going under the knife carries irreversible changes, potential risks and significant medical leave. Also these surgical procedures are usually prohibitively expensive and only a few can afford them. Thanks to facial fillers, you can now erase wrinkles, rejuvenate the skin, fill in the cheekbones, define the facial oval, improve the appearance of your knees, hands and buttocks, acne scars, facial structure afte abrupt weight loss, without having to go under the knife.
Radiesse facial filler is made up of calcium hydroxyapatite molecules, which is a natural component of our body and acts as a stimulant for collagen formation. Initially, it was used to fill in large spaces such as the cheekbones, but during clinical trials, collagen molecules were found to increase in the injected areas. Hence its double action, in addition to recovering lost volume and defining the facial contour, by forming collagen, it produces new cells that act as fillers.
During the treatment, which does not usually last more than 30 minutes, deposits are made with the help of a cannula in the areas where we want to reduce flaccidity. Without anesthetic aid, the pain of the Radiesse injection is similar to that of any vaccine. Now, as multiple infiltrations are usually required and the face is a very sensitive part of the body, it is normal to use an anesthetic cream.
The first results are visible immediately, but, by inducing collagen formation, we must wait one or two months until we can see the definitive results.
Like all facial fillers, Radiesse is a temporary treatment that wears off over time. However, by stimulating collagen production, it has been shown to last longer than hyaluronic acid-based fillers. The effects of facial fillers with Radiesse are maintained for 12 to 18 months, while fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm usually disappear between 6 and 9 months.
