As we age, our skin loses elasticity and volume, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Fortunately, there are many cosmetic treatments available to help restore your more youthful appearance: Radiesse in Louisville, a dermal filler that can smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth).
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse injections are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the skin. This dermal filler is primarily composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel, making it suitable for treating wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume in various areas of the face and hands.
Radiesse provides a gradual and natural-looking improvement, as the results develop over time due to collagen production. This can be different from some hyaluronic acid fillers, which show immediate results.
Ideal candidates for Radiesse injections are individuals seeking non-surgical facial rejuvenation. They typically desire to address mild to moderate facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. Radiesse is an excellent choice for those looking to restore volume and contour to areas like the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Suitable candidates should be in good overall health, without allergies to any Radiesse components.
Radiesse is safe but should not be administered in areas with active skin infections, such as cold sores, acne, or other skin conditions, to avoid exacerbating the infection. It is also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as well as patients who have recently had another dermal filler treatment in the same area. If so, they may need to wait for some time before receiving Radiesse to prevent overcorrection and complications.
What to Expect During a Consultation
During a consultation, Dr. Joseph Banis will evaluate your medical history, examine your skin, and discuss your goals for the treatment. He will also explain the procedure, including the risks and benefits, and answer any questions you may have. If you are a good candidate for Radiesse, the provider will develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.
Day of the Procedure
The Radiesse injection procedure typically takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Dr. Banis will first clean the treatment area and may apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. They will then use a fine needle to inject the Radiesse gel into the skin. After the injection, the application areas may be massaged to ensure even distribution of the product.
Road to Recovery
Most individuals can enjoy the immediate benefits of Radiesse, such as enhanced facial volume and smoother skin, while experiencing minimal downtime. Most patients can also resume their normal activities immediately after the Radiesse injection procedure. However, some swelling, redness, and bruising may occur at the injection site, which typically resolves within a few days. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and sun exposure for 24 hours after the procedure.
The cost of Radiesse injections varies depending on the number of injections needed, and the location of the treatment area. During a consultation, a detailed cost estimate will be provided based on your specific needs.
