What is Radiesse used for?

The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can cause adult patients to worry about these changes that often occur with aging. The skin becomes more relaxed, resulting in the formation of these wrinkles where there was once soft, youthful, firmer skin. When men and women want to help reduce the appearance of these imperfections while turning back the hands of time, they may want to ask about cosmetic injectables such as Radiesse.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse works in two ways. First, it helps fill specific lines and wrinkles of the face where it is injected. This provides immediate results. Second, it stimulates the body’s natural development of collagen, which ensures longer-lasting results and more youthful skin. This injectable is cleared by the FDA as safe and effective for cosmetic use, and continues to be one of the more popular treatments at Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills.

Who is a candidate for Radiesse?

Radiesse is best used for patients who are between the ages of 30-60 years who are seeking a solution for the mild to moderate signs of aging on the face. Patients who have more severe aging may only be able to address the issue with plastic surgery treatments such as a facelift. However, without having to undergo surgical interventions, patients can use Radiesse to help delay the aging process. The aging process cannot be stopped, but cosmetic injectables can help slow the process and ensure more gradual changes.

Where is Radiesse used?

While most patients utilize Radiesse and other dermal fillers or injectables on the facial area, they can also be used on the hands to reduce the thinning skin in this area. Areas of the face that can benefit from Radiesse injections include the folds around the nose and mouth area, as well as the cheeks where volume loss typically occurs.
