Radiesse® in Millersville, MD

As we age, the lower face often reveals the earliest signs of aging, partly due to the effects of gravity. This area can develop wrinkles, sagging skin, and lose its youthful contours.

Our focus is on delivering precise, professional services that align with your aesthetic goals, making sure your experience with us is both comfortable and effective.

What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler specifically formulated for smoothing and rejuvenating the lower facial area. It is unique because of its ability to not only fill in wrinkles and fine lines but also to enhance facial contours. Radiesse offers a multifaceted approach to addressing aging skin concerns.

How Does Radiesse Work?

In its initial role as a dermal filler, Radiesse acts by instantly adding volume beneath the skin. This immediate action helps in filling wrinkles and folds, providing visible enhancement right after injection. Its gel-like composition blends seamlessly with the skin, facilitating a natural lift and rejuvenation.

Beyond its immediate filling effects, Radiesse also functions as a biostimulator. Over time, it encourages the body’s natural production of collagen, the essential protein for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. This gradual boost in collagen leads to sustained improvements in skin texture and firmness, making your Radiesse treatment an effective and comprehensive option for facial rejuvenation.

What Are the Benefits of Radiesse?

Diminishes Wrinkles on the Chin

Radiesse filler is particularly effective in diminishing the appearance of wrinkles on the chin. It provides a smoother, more youthful look by targeting these specific signs of aging. If you want a more focused solution to this common concern, Radiesse may be right for you.

Reduces Jawline Folds

This dermal filler is adept at reducing the appearance of folds along the jawline. It subtly reshapes the area, resulting in a more defined and youthful jawline. It can help to prevent and treat pre-jowl folds by increasing collagen production in this area.

Minimizes Marionette Lines

Radiesse effectively minimizes marionette lines, those prominent lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. This treatment targets these lines, softening their appearance and contributing to a more refreshed facial expression.

Improves Oral Commissures

With each Radiesse treatment, improvements in the oral commissures, the corners of the mouth, can be achieved. The treatment lifts and revitalizes this area, helping to counteract the downturned appearance that often comes with aging.

Smooths Nasolabial Folds

Radiesse injections are particularly beneficial in smoothing nasolabial folds, the deep lines that develop from the nose to the corners of the mouth. The filler’s ability to add volume and stimulate collagen helps in significantly softening these folds.

Rejuvenates Hands

This biostimulator is not limited to facial rejuvenation but also extends its benefits to hand rejuvenation. It restores volume and stimulates collagen production, resulting in smoother, younger-looking hands with less visible veins and tendons.

Common Questions About Radiesse

Because of its biostimulating abilities, Radiesse can offer more long-lasting results than many other treatments. Results can often endure for a year or longer. The duration can vary depending on individual factors such as skin type and lifestyle, and you may be able to extend your results by protecting your skin from the sun and establishing a good skincare routine.

Radiesse treatments are ideal for individuals seeking to address signs of aging in the lower face, such as wrinkles, folds, and loss of volume. It is suitable for adults who desire a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation and are in good overall health.

Radiesse filler differs from hyaluronic acid fillers primarily in its composition and action. While both types serve to add volume and smooth wrinkles, most fillers aren’t designed to act as a biostimulator to enhance the body’s collagen production. Radiesse is unique for its immediate and extended action.

Immediate results are visible with Radiesse, and these results refine over a few days as the product settles. The full biostimulating effects, including enhanced collagen production, typically become evident in the following weeks and months, culminating in a more pronounced and enduring rejuvenation.

Maintenance appointments with Radiesse injections are certainly possible. They can be scheduled based on the individual’s response to the treatment and their desired aesthetic goals. Regular touch-up treatments as recommended by your provider can help maintain and prolong the rejuvenating effects.

During your first Radiesse treatment appointment, a consultation will determine the optimal injection sites. The injections are typically described as a mild pinch, and a topical numbing cream can be used for comfort. One of the advantages of Radiesse is that there is no downtime, allowing patients to return to their normal activities on the day of the treatment.
