There are many great things about getting older: gaining experience and wisdom, understanding the world around us a little more, and spending wonderful moments with family and friends. Unfortunately, there are other unappealing things we gain as we age like facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. Depending on your genetics and lifestyle, these lines can make you look older than you are.
At the Zwiebel Center for Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, we offer a number of cosmetic fillers to help erase the effects of time from your face to give you a smooth, rejuvenated appearance. One filler we offer, Radiesse®, can help eliminate lines and wrinkles on various areas of your face to turn back time and erase years for a more youthful complexion.
If you’d like to learn more about Radiesse® and how it may be able to help you, call us today at 720-501-6500 to schedule a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon. We proudly provide services to those who live in Denver, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, and nearby areas of Colorado.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler used as a non-invasive way to smooth out moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. Its unique formula provides lift and plumps the skin to diminish the signs of aging while stimulating the body’s own natural collagen production.
This filler is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a gel carrier and injected right below the skin in the target area. After injection, the filler creates an immediate volume increase in the facial area and continues to work by encouraging the body’s natural production of collagen. Once the gel is absorbed by the body, the CaHA is metabolized and the natural collagen continues to provide a smooth, plump appearance to your face.
Radiesse® is an ideal solution to create a refreshed appearance and can help temporarily reduce or eliminate:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Corners of the mouth
- Chin wrinkles
- Pre-jowl folds
- Facial wrinkles and folds
Benefits of Radiesse®
Radiesse® is the ideal choice for total facial contouring. It can restore a healthy, youthful appearance, enhance your existing features, and increase your confidence—all without invasive surgery or scarring. There are many benefits to using this facial filler for rejuvenating your skin. These benefits include:
- Immediately replenishes lost volume and smoothes wrinkles
- Stimulates production of body’s natural collagen
- Clinically-proven to last a year or more for many patients
- FDA-approved to mix with lidocaine to reduce injection pain
- High patient satisfaction
Patients of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel find that Radiesse® effectively diminishes the vertical lines that can form around the lips and the horizontal lines across the forehead. Radiesse® can also create or restore fuller lips with greater volume and definition.
Candidates for Radiesse® Treatment
Just like the many dermal fillers available, Radiesse® is generally safe to use for most patients. As with any plastic surgery procedure though, it’s important to understand that not everyone is a candidate for treatment. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, and age can inhibit you from having a specific procedure completed.
That’s why at the Zwiebel Center for Plastic Surgery and Skin Care we make sure that each patient gets the right treatment for their desired results by having a comprehensive consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel. During your consultation, he’ll evaluate your current health status and review your medical history to make sure the correct treatment is chosen for you.
While safe for most patients, you should not use Radiesse® if you:
- Have a history of severe allergies
- Have a bleeding disorder
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Are under the age of 18
- Have an allergy to lidocaine or medicines like it
- Have an allergy to any of the components in the product
- Have allergies from a history of anaphylaxis
During your consultation, it’s also recommended to talk to the doctor about any blood thinners or medicines you may be taking, as these may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site. You should also be open about any diseases, injuries, or history of skin disorders so that we can treat you in the safest, most effective manner possible.
