The aging process affect us all in different ways. However, everyone will eventually deal with a loss of facial volume. This is because as you get older, the volume underneath your skin diminishes. The result is that your skin goes from being taut and youthful in appearance to being wrinkled. Until it happens to you, you may not even realize how important or how valuable the facial volume you had was. As the collagen and elastin in your face starts to break down, and as your body stops producing hyaluronic acid, your face begins to deflate. Fortunately, Radiesse® is a powerful tool that can be used to help restore lost facial volume.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is designed to make your skin plump again. As it does this, you will notice that problems with your face, such as wrinkles and fine lines, start to disappear. In addition to making your fine lines and wrinkles disappear, Radiesse® also encourages your body to build more collagen again. This means that your body starts to reactivate the processes that kept you looking young in your youth.
When Radiesse® is skillfully injected into the target area, the depressions, wrinkles and fine lines that you have start to fill out. Something that’s important to know about this product is that it is not a permanent fix. Dermal fillers have hyaluronic acid as their base. Hyaluronic acid is something that you naturally have in your body, and it is something that adds to the moisture and the volume underneath your skin. With time, the hyaluronic acid in Radiesse® starts to break down. So, about 12 to 18 months after your treatment, your results will start to fade. The good news is these treatments can be safely repeated at our office as needed to maintain the results.
Losing facial volume is one of the most powerful characteristics associated with getting older. Lost volume in the face can make you look drastically older than you really are. Isn’t it worth it to investigate simple injections that you can take advantage of on an annual basis to improve your appearance and keep you looking young?
