Is Radiesse Good for Nasolabial Folds? - A Younger You Burlington

Your face and hands are some of the first areas on your body to show the negative signs of age. As you get older, you will develop folds and creases around your mouth and nose. You will also lose volume in your hands. Fortunately, Radiesse can smooth your wrinkles and add volume to your hands. To learn more about this fantastic injectable product, contact us at A Younger You Medical Spa in Burlington, Wisconsin.

Is Radiesse Good for Nasolabial Folds?

Nasolabial folds are wrinkles that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Although these wrinkles are very normal, they can make you look tired, sad, or upset. Radiesse is an excellent way to address nasolabial folds.

This injectable product will minimize the appearance of these wrinkles by adding volume to your face. Once you achieve the full benefits of your treatment, your skin will be smoother and your nasolabial folds will be less visible.

How Does This Dermal Filler Work?

This dermal filler is made of a gel that contains very small calcium-based microspheres. These microspheres are biocompatible, so you will not need allergy testing before your treatment. Once we administer the product into your target area, it will quickly add volume to your skin. This added volume will minimize the appearance of your wrinkles.

Over time, the microspheres in the product will encourage your body to make additional collagen. Collagen is a fibrous protein that gives your skin structure. By increasing your collagen levels, this dermal filler will make your skin look more youthful.

What Areas Can This Dermal Filler Treat?

As discussed above, this dermal filler is great at minimizing nasolabial folds that run between your mouth and nose. In addition to improving these lines, this filler can minimize the appearance of several other types of wrinkles and imperfections on your face.

For instance, this treatment is great at minimizing marionette lines that appear near the corners of your mouth. Further, this treatment can address sagging skin on your cheeks and jawline. We can also use this treatment to restore lost volume to your hands.

What Is the Injection Process Like?

Your appointment will be personalized to fit your goals, the severity of your wrinkles, and the areas that you want to improve. That said, this is a minimally invasive treatment that usually takes about twenty to forty minutes to administer.

To ensure that you are comfortable during the injection process, we will add a gentle anesthetic to your injectable solution. We will also give you ice packs to hold against your skin.

What Will My Recovery Process Be Like?

This dermal filler is sometimes called a lunch break treatment. Since your recovery time will be minimal, you can get your injections during your lunch break. You can drive yourself back to your office after your appointment is complete.

That said, you should follow a few easy rules for the next twenty-four hours. For instance, you should not massage your treatment area or wear makeup. Further, you should not expose your skin to strong sunlight or heat.

Is This Dermal Filler Safe?

The FDA has approved this dermal filler for the purpose of addressing moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles. It is also approved for the purpose of correcting volume loss on the back of the hands. We have extensive experience using this product, and we will administer your injections in a precise manner.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for This Dermal Filler?

If you are an adult who has aging hands or moderate-to-severe wrinkles on your face, you are likely to be a suitable candidate for this dermal filler. Further, if you have thicker skin, you are likely to have a good response to this treatment.

Although this is a minimally invasive treatment, it's not right for everyone. If you have thin skin, we may advise you to use a different dermal filler. Further, you cannot use this treatment if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the product or if you have a history of severe allergies.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Since your treatment will be customized, your individual results will vary. That said, this dermal filler is likely to last for a longer period of time than many other injectable products. In fact, your improvements may last for up to fifteen months. To preserve the benefits of this product, you should eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and wear a strong sunscreen when you go outside.

You can receive touch-up injections once the effects of your initial treatment begin to wear off. We will provide you with more details about your maintenance plan during your initial meeting with us.

Does This Dermal Filler Really Work?

This product is very effective. In a scientific study, ninety-eight percent of people who received this treatment in their hands had significant improvements after three months. Eighty-six percent of these people still had improvements after a year. Further, people who received Radiesse in clinical studies were more satisfied with their improvements than people who used other dermal fillers.
