Radiesse Treatment

OVERVIEW
This is an injectable gel, temporarily designed to add volume to the face to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It contains microspheres. Microspheres are composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance naturally found in the body, making it hypoallergenic. It begins as a filler and turns into a collagen booster.

WHAT TO EXPECT
A pre-treatment consultation to discuss and set appropriate expectations; and determine suitability of the treatment. A session lasting around 30 minutes follows in which your practitioner will numb the area with gel and give you a series of injections using a fine needle.

BENEFITS.
It tackles flaws such as marionette lines (lines either side of the mouth), elevens (frown marks), naso-labial folds, and general facial skin sagging. Its dual function as a collagen booster and its lifespan make it a particularly attractive option.

POTENTIAL DOWNSIDES
A touch-up is recommended about 4 months after the initial session but then results are said to last up to a year. You may experience redness, swelling and/or itching in the treatment site.
