There are many types of dermal fillers available at Vive Spa Medico Tijuana, each of which Dr. Verduzco knows the unique formula and the best filling option to target specific regions where wrinkles and hollows form. Radiesse® is specifically designed to restore volume in key areas of the face and stimulate the production of new collagen to provide a more natural rejuvenation.
Smiling allows people around you to know that you feel good, although you may not be happy with the lines that appear when you do it. As time passes, nasolabial folds can form along with other wrinkles and folds in the face, making it look older, and even tired or annoying. Patients who want to do something with these lines often choose Radiesse®. Dr. Verduzco offers the Radiesse® dermal filler to his clients who want to restore lost volume and soften their wrinkles with results that last a year or more.
What Is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is what is known as dermal filler, which is literally filled in areas where the reduced volume and vital components of the skin have resulted in a lined or sunken appearance. Specifically, Radiesse® is composed of a compound similar to a mineral found in bones, although the production process of the injectable cosmetic does not involve any real animal product. The compound, known as calcium hydroxylapatite, is administered as small spheres suspended in a gel.
The particular formulation found in Radiesse® serves two purposes: first, it provides instant correction of wrinkles and folds by filling the skin and producing a rounder and more youthful appearance. Second, it triggers the production of natural collagen, which restores even more the lost volume and revitalizes the skin that has lost its beneficial collagen due to environmental damage and age.
Radiesse® is often used to treat the nasolabial folds mentioned above, which appear as lines that begin on either side of the nose and extend to the corners of the mouth. It also corrects puppet lines that run down from the corners of the mouth, chin creases, “pre-jowls” and a general downward twist of the mouth that can create the impression of a permanent frown or frown .
Its nature as a filling makes it ideal for temporary augmentation, too, with more defined contours for the temples, nose, cheeks, chin and jaw.
However, the most notable treatment performed with Radiesse® in Vive Medical Spa is for your hands, as the filler is the only dermal filler approved by the FDA to correct the loss of volume in the hands. Radiesse® allows Dr. Verduzco to create rounded and youthful contours for his hands, which can make him look older than he is if his hands have a rough and bony structure.
What Can I Expect From A Radiesse® Treatment Session?
Dr. Verduzco personally administers Radiesse® to patients in Skin Care Forth Worth, providing his extensive medical experience and visual balance in each treatment session. It uses a cannula for your injections, which has a blunt tip (unlike the sharp tip of a needle) that allows it to slide more easily into the skin and prevent perforation of the blood vessels.
Through the use of a cannula, Dr. Verduzco can provide an experience that produces less discomfort and reduces bleeding and bruising. The cannulas can also improve the accuracy, allowing desirable results and leading to shorter visits. It has been clinically proven that Radiesse® lasts a year or more in many patients. Some patients may wish to schedule a retouching appointment to maintain optimal results.
Side effects associated with Radiesse® are common to most dermal fillers, as they include redness, swelling and other minor reactions at the injection site, which usually resolve in a matter of days. Dr. Verduzco can discuss any concerns you may have about these or other potential side effects in your practice.
