Smoking, drinking copious amounts of alcohol, sun damage, irritants and nutritional deficiencies are just a few reasons you may look older than you actually are. If you’re concerned that your face and the backs of your hands are showing too many signs of aging, the aesthetic experts at Lux: A Medical Spa in Bluffton, SC may have just the solution for you in Radiesse, an FDA-approved anti-aging treatment that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Does Radiesse Work Immediately?
Radiesse gets to work immediately, and you can see the initial results of treatment as soon as you leave our conveniently located office. The moment the needle penetrates your skin, a “micro-injury” occurs and your body starts to produce collagen to treat the “wound”.
Moreover, the injectable automatically plumps up the wrinkles and folds of concerns. However, it takes your body time to produce its own collagen, so the final results of treatment won’t be seen for a couple weeks.
How Long Do the Results Last?
There are several factors that affect how long the results will last. One of the most significant is how quickly your body metabolizes the injected filler. However, scientists have spent years improving the strength of the formula. Once you achieve your ideal aesthetic, you can expect to not need a follow-up treatment for two years.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse is different from other dermal fillers in that it is made up of CaHA, or calcium hydroxyapatite, gel microspheres. CaHA contains phosphate and calcium ions which are found in abundance in your skin cells. This means there is no risk of an allergic reaction or any other form of negative reaction. CaHA injections work by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production process even after the initial jumpstart of wound healing.
In other words, even after your body has metabolized the filler, the results of treatment do not disappear because now your body’s own filler (collagen) is in its place. Moreover, the carbon, oxygen and hydrogen found in the gel create a structure that mimics your body’s natural connective tissue. The result is taut, plump, wrinkle-free skin that you can enjoy for years to come.
