Are you looking for a way to get rid of your unwanted wrinkles? At Moderne Medical in Scottsdale, AZ, we recommend Radiesse to patients who want to increase their skin’s natural production of collagen. With higher collagen levels, you will enjoy fewer wrinkles and a smoother texture. What is this treatment and how does it work?
What Is Radiesse?
This treatment is an injectable that restores volume and smooths wrinkles. Over time, our skin changes because it loses its ability to rejuvenate itself. In particular, we produce less collagen, the protein that gives skin its structure and elasticity. As our ability to retain moisture declines, our skin becomes thinner and more prone to sagging. This treatment addresses these issues by boosting collagen production and physically providing a lift.
What Does Radiesse Treat?
This treatment is highly effective on areas of the skin that show signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. It works well on the face and other areas of the body. There are different versions of this filler, each providing optimal results in different areas. The basic version of Radiesse treats:
- Volume loss in the cheeks
- Lines and areas of sagging around the jawline
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the chin
Another version, Hyperdilute Radiesse, is highly effective for:
- Firming the neck
- Restoring smoothness to the décolleté
How Does This Treatment Work?
Deep Rejuvenation of Your Skin
When you come in for this treatment, we provide injections that deliver the product directly into the targeted areas. This process is designed to be as fast and comfortable as possible. The injections are formulated with lidocaine, a local anesthetic. We also provide a topical numbing cream and offer nitrous oxide gas to ease any discomfort or nervousness during the treatment. Unlike topical creams and at-home solutions, they provide deep rejuvenation below the top layer of your skin.
Volume Restoration and Collagen Production
The gel this treatment delivers is made up of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres. They improve your appearance in two ways. First, they physically plump your skin, adding volume to places that have become thin. This literally fills in your wrinkles and lifts the targeted areas. Second, they create “scaffolds” where new collagen can grow. Gradually, your body’s natural collagen replaces the gel, restoring your ability to stay wrinkle-free and giving you greater firmness.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
You will see smoother, fuller skin as soon as we finish the injections. In the weeks that follow your appointment, the condition of your skin will continue to improve.
One of the reasons many people choose this treatment is that the results last for an incredibly long time. Most patients enjoy the benefits for 1-2 years.
Safety and Convenience
This treatment is FDA approved and is safe for all skin types. It requires no downtime and does not involve any surgery.
