A Natural Look that Lasts
I have reviewed a few other wrinkle fillers including Restylane, Artecoll, Juvederm and Botox and found one of the best cosmetic dermal fillers for anti aging your wrinkles and deep folds in the skin is Radiesse. I’ve done the research, spoken to the various companies that make these cosmetic wrinkle fillers and with women and men who have actually had the work done.
I was speaking with my anti-aging specialist, a medical doctor and a bioidentical hormone expert and I asked her if she uses any cosmetic filler herself. She confirmed that she used “everything” and specifically used Botox for around the eyes and forehead and a filler called Radiesse for her nasal labial folds. She looks fabulous. I asked her why she uses Radiesse and she said it is because it is the longest lasting filler and therefore becomes the cheapest. Radiesse can last up to a year or more and I am considering, for the first time, actually getting it done myself.
What to Expect from Radiesse
Cosmetic surgery for the face done with Radiesse is a budget conscious decision. As far as cosmetic fillers go, it does the job of filling deep folds in the skin which come as a result of aging and the reduction of collagen and elastin within the skin. The best thing about Radiesse is that it is long lasting. This makes it great for your budget. Instead of having to go and get cosmetic surgery each four to six months, you can have this done once a year or even up to once every two years. The end result is natural and reduces the look of tiredness in your face.
Radiesse can be used for nasal labial folds, augmenting the cheek bones, jaw line contouring, tear troughs, marionette lines and filling up old scars such as acne scars. It is advertised as a “next generation in longer lasting wrinkle correction.” As a dermal filler, it’s one of the best.
What is Radiesse made of?
Radiesse has been approved by the health agencies in North America and Europe (FDA approval) and is a safe treatment for the correction of wrinkles and folds.
It is made of calcium based microspheres in a natural gel and is injected into the problem areas. These microspheres work with your body and help support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. They eventually break down and are naturally absorbed into the body. The results are immediate and last anywhere from one to two years. It is safe and has been clinically tested over many years. Over 4000 doctors have received training with Radiesse dermal filler application.
How is Radiesse used?
Radiesse is injected into the problem sites under the skin. It is used with a local anesthetic to numb the pain of injection which is like a small pin prick. An ice pack is applied immediately after to reduce numbness and swelling. Your doctor may massage the areas after injection to ensure even correction. You could have some side effects such as mild irritation, itching, bruising, swelling or tenderness at the injection site, but most of these side effects are rare.
It can be done in a lunch hour, but maybe take the day off to admire your new younger looking skin. There may be“firmness” to the injection site, but this will dissipate in the days that follow. Avoid aggressive washing or rubbing immediately after having the Radiesse dermal filler done.
As an anti aging tip for best dermal fillers, Radiesse is one of the best choices because of its safety and lasting qualities.
