Achieve Rejuvenated Skin with Radiesse®
You may notice that your face looks less supple and full than it did years ago. You can combat these signs of aging with Radiesse® treatments provided by Fullerton dermatologist William Baugh. Radiesse® is a popular dermal filler that is used to reduce lines and wrinkles, fill scars, and even naturally augment areas that hollow as we age, like the cheeks. The product is also a great alternative to solid implants and bovine collagen treatments, which some individuals cannot tolerate. To discuss your cosmetic options with a respected dermatologist, contact Full Spectrum Dermatology today and set up a consultation with Dr. Baugh.
As you age, the structural system that supports your facial skin breaks down. This includes the depletion of collagen and elastin, which offers elasticity, and hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that maintains your skin’s moisture.
Radiesse® treatment takes as little as 15 minutes to complete, and is performed as a convenient outpatient procedure. Dr. Baugh will discuss your concerns with you and mark out the precise areas of concern. For added comfort, he will apply a local anesthetic and use a pre-loaded syringe with a tiny needle to inject the Radiesse® gel into each wrinkle or scar. We will show you the immediate change in a mirror, and if you are not satisfied, Dr. Baugh will inject a bit more Radiesse® until we achieve the desired effect. You may experience up to 36 hours of mild swelling and bruising at the injection site. Any discoloration can easily be concealed using makeup, and over-the-counter analgesics can reduce post-procedure discomfort. if it occurs.
The effects of Radiesse® can last up to year or longer, depending on the treated area and your body’s response. This dermal filler promotes long-lasting results in two ways. First, it is absorbed by the body slowly, so it provides support to your facial structure. Second, as the gel diminishes, Radiesse® stimulates your body’s natural ability to produce collagen. Once the filler itself is gone, it allows you to achieve a naturally smoother contour with the support of your own tissue.
Radiesse® is preferred by many of our patients for its numerous benefits:
- Radiesse® provides immediate, dramatic results
- Radiesse® provides a long-lasting effect that makes it cost effective
- The filler encourages the natural replenishment of collagen
- Radiesse® is FDA-approved for combined use with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, for minimized pain during treatment
- Radiesse® targets smile lines, marionette lines, sagging jowls, and chin wrinkles
Radiesse® is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a biocompatible aqueous gel carrier. Because these microspheres are made of the same minerals found in human bones and teeth, the product is very safe, and suitable for patients who are allergic to animal-based injectables.
