The use of non-surgical treatments like injectable fillers is a great way to rejuvenate your look, and there can’t be a better option than the FDA-approved Radiesse fillers. It is generally used to treat the skin on the back of your hands, hollows in your cheeks and wrinkles around the mouth. Here are a few things you should consider before going for the treatment.
Is It The Right Choice For You?
The main objective of this treatment is to restore volume in some parts of your face, including sagging jawlines, cheek volume, hollow temples, mouth-corner creases and nasolabial folds. If you are looking for a temporary enhancement in these areas, it is certainly a right choice for you.
Are You Trusting The Right Provider?
Treatment specialists need not be a board-certified surgeon, but should have a good track record to back their experience. Ask them to show before and after pictures, and verify the authenticity. Consult a lot of sources before selecting one. Just like any other injectable treatment, Radiesse is also about making a series of injections on areas that need volume. The exact number will be based on the technique of the provider and your requirements. Make sure to go over the details of the procedure, in case you have anxiety to needles.
Temporary Bruising, Swelling Or Pain
You may experience some sort of pain or swelling initially, but that will fade away quickly. Depending upon the skills of your provider, side effects can be minimum. Most doctors include lidocaine to minimize any sort of pain!
What’s The Estimated Downtime?
Radiesse filler treatment doesn’t have much of a recovery time, since it totally depends on the person itself on how he’s going to cope with daily activities, while still showing potential bruising or swelling. Give yourself at least a week’s time to get in good shape!
Common Side Effects
Besides bruising, redness and swelling, lumps are the most common side effects. It is a bigger concern, when injected in thin-skinned areas. Being a thicker filler in comparison to others, it is best applied in areas that have deeper tissues, such as nose, cheek and jawline. It is not recommended for soft areas such as lips and under the eyelids.
Can Radiesse Be Dissolved?
Unlike hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Restylane and Juvederm, Radiesse cannot be dissolved or reversed, once injected. However, the impact goes away quickly, just in case you are not happy with the results.
The results you get with this treatment is all about augmented volume. It produces a fuller look when used for hollow cheeks and softer lines, when injected into nasolabial folds. The impact can last for around 12-18 months, which is relatively longer compared to other injectable fillers, since it stimulates skin to produce more collagen. A larger amount of product may be used on people with round faces. At the end of the day, the professionalism and proper technique employed by your injectables provider will come into play.
