Radiesse Filler Injections in Gaithersburg, MD
When you're young, your skin is full of naturally occurring solutions that give it volume. Collagen, hyaluronic acid (HA) and elastin are what make your skin have a youthful, vibrant appearance.
As you age, these substances naturally decline, which leads to sagging and wrinkly skin. This isn't the end, however. Radiesse, a safe, effective dermal filler from Merz Aesthetics, has shown to improve volume to in facial skin and boost your confidence with a healthier, youthful look.
If Radiesse sounds right for you, please call (410) 204-2254 or contact Dr. Karen Clarke-Bennett online.
How Radiesse Injections Work?
Radiesse is a volumizing filler. It accomplishes that goal through the use of calcium-based microspheres that are injected just under the skin. These spheres contain only natural solutions, unlike the synthetic components of other dermal fillers .
The Radiesse injection works by stimulating your skin's natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Over time, the gel and microspheres of Radiesse are absorbed by your body, leaving behind only your own natural collagen. The result is smoother skin and a more youthful look.
Radiesse can treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, including:
- Crow's feet
- Frown lines
- Smile lines
- Corners of the mouth
The effects of Radiesse have been shown to last up to one year and touch-up injections can be done after the effects lessen.
What Will My Radiesse Treatment be Like?
Radiesse injections take no more than 10 – 20 minutes, and most people can resume their regular activities immediately after. Because Radiesse features almost no downtime, there are a few things to keep in mind and avoid for 24 hours after your injection:
- Strenuous exercise
- Extended sun exposure
- Facial makeup
The Radiesse dermal filler injection causes only mild pain, especially when combined with a local anesthetic. Some swelling is normal after your injection, and will take care of itself after 24 hours.
