Radiesse Washington DC
Radiesse helps by stimulating the bodies natural ability to produce collagen. Radiesse and Radiesse (+) are known as volumizing dermal fillers that stimulate collagen and are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds, frequently known as the “smile lines.”
Radiesse is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Radiesse provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the Calcium Hydrocylapatite microspheres, leaving behind only your own natural collagen. This not only increases elasticity, but also reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Radiesse is frequently used for cheeks, midface, and the jawline and provides correction for immediate rejuvenation of the face. Dr. Somenek uses the blunt tip microcannula technique, which avoids bruising and minimizes discomfort for his patients. This method allows for less injection sites, which ultimately reduces trauma to the skin. There is reduced downtime with the microcannula method when injecting Radiesse, so patients will notice immediate results with little to no bruising.
Radiesse is placed in the upper cheek region and Dr. Somenek works down the cheek into the midface region to restore lost volume. This creates a smooth transition from the cheek to the midface, maintaining a natural, rejuvenated appearance. Patients will look years younger immediately following treatment as volume is restored to areas of previous volume loss. The wrinkles and creases can be reduced by adding volume to the cheeks and midface. This treatment can be combined with other injectable fillers in other areas of the face to restore volume in all regions.
Radiesse can also correct volume loss in the back of the hands. Many times people neglect the appearance of their hands, while failing to realize that this can be the one thing that gives away their age. Radiesse immediately restores volume to the hands and can take years off an otherwise volume depleted and aged hand.
