As someone ages, the skin slowly loses its glow. Elasticity, collagen and hyaluronic acid are all in abundance inside youthful skin. When the skin starts to lose those things, wrinkles and aging spots begin to appear. But all is not lost for men and women who are aging. Radiesse treatments grant skin with a new life.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a process in which volume is put back into the skin. Once it has been injected, volume and lift is added to the skin which results in a reduced appearance of wrinkles. It also works to stimulate the collagen underneath the skin in order to begin new growth. The best thing about this process is that it can renew any part of the face without the invasion of surgery.
What should I expect from my NYC Radiesse treatment?
Radiesse is injected into the skin directly without any surgical procedure. Local anesthesia may be applied to the patient while the procedure is taking place. There may be slight discomfort due to the needle injection but the procedure involves very little pain. The gel which is injected into the skin is made up of an organic compound which contains carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. The connective tissue forms around the microspheres within the gel so that it acts as a filler inside the skin. The cosmetic dermatologist will decide how much gel should go into each injection and place it directly into specific areas of the face. The injections usually last up to a year before having to be performed again but sometimes touch ups may be needed.
