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. Factors such as genetics and lifestyle contribute to these lines and can make you appear 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 and give you a smooth, rejuvenated complexion. 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 appearance.
If you’d like to learn more about Radiesse® and how it may be able to help you, call us today at 303-470-3400 to make 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.
How Does Radiesse® Work?
Radiesse® is used as a non-invasive way to help fill moderate to severe lines and wrinkles 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 carried in a gel and injected right below the skin in the target area. Once the filler is injected, it increases volume in the targeted area and then continues working by encouraging collagen production in the body. Once it's absorbed by the body, the natural collagen continues to provide a natural-looking appearance.
Radiesse® is an ideal solution to create a refreshed appearance and can help temporarily reduce or eliminate:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Line on the 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:
- Non-invasive procedure
- Immediate increase in volume and smoothing of wrinkles
- Stimulates natural collagen production
- Clinically-proven to last a year or more for many patients
- FDA-approved for use with lidocaine to decrease pain
- High satisfaction rate among patients
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 know 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 this time, he’ll evaluate your current health and medical history to make sure the correct treatment is chosen for you.
While Radiesse® is a great option for many, you should not use if this product if you:
- Have intense allergies
- Suffer from a bleeding condition
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Are 18 years old or under
- Are allergic to lidocaine
- Are allergic to any of the ingredients in the product
- Suffer from allergies because of anaphylaxis
We recommended talking to the doctor about any medicines for blood thinning that you may be taking. These have teh potential to increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the sites of injection. It's also important to be forthright about any diseases or history of skin disorders you may have. That way we can assist you in the safest manner possible.
