Has aging changed the way that you look in ways that you don’t like? There are ways to get a more youthful appearance. At H-MD Medical Spa in Oklahoma City, OK, our Radiesse treatments might be exactly what you’re looking for.
What Is Radiesse Used for?
Aging brings about a lot of changes to our bodies and minds. You probably find that the older you get, the less you feel like you did when you were young. Many of these changes are inevitable, like changes to the texture and the appearance of your skin.
But don’t worry, you don’t need to deal with these changes forever. There are ways that you can get back your younger, healthier-looking skin. Radiesse is a dermal filler that can target common issues like volume loss and wrinkles in your face. When you get this filler from a trusted practitioner, you’ll know you’re getting the youthful looks you’ve been missing. Here are a few areas that you can target with this treatment.
Laugh lines, also known and smile lines or nasolabial folds, are the vertical lines that show up between your nose and your mouth. They can age your appearance significantly, and make you look older than you are.
One of the ways that this dermal filler can help you is by filling in the area. When you receive injections in this area, the product will fill in the area, smoothing out the skin on top and reducing the appearance of these wrinkles.
Another area where it’s common to see wrinkling is the eyebrow area. Your eyebrows move around a lot, which can result in wrinkling. When you frown or furrow your brow, you might notice 11-shaped lines forming between your eyebrows. Over time, these lines can become permanent.
You can use this dermal filler to diminish the appearance of these lines, known as frown lines. It offers a super safe and effective way to get rid of these wrinkles, which will help you look happier and more relaxed. You’ll also appear much more youthful with these wrinkles gone.
Lifting your eyebrows will result in the skin on your forehead creasing. Like the skin on all areas of your body, repeated movements like this can eventually result in permanent lines and wrinkles. Lines running across your forehead can make you look worried, grumpy, and much older than you feel inside.
This dermal filler can help target the area. When it fills in your forehead, you’ll notice that these lines begin to disappear. This will help you not only look much more youthful, but it will help you look more relaxed and at ease.
One of the biggest changes that come with aging is a loss of volume. The older you get, the more your skin loses chemicals that helped it look fuller and plumper. This happens to the skin all over your body, but there are some areas where this change is more prominent than others. One area is your cheeks.
When your cheeks lose volume, your face might look gaunter and hollower. This may not be an appearance that you like. The good news is that this filler can put the lost volume back into your cheeks, making you look much more youthful.
When it comes to aging concerns, many people focus primarily on the face. After all, that’s where many of these aging concerns are the most noticeable. But your face isn’t the only place where you’ll see changes in the appearance and texture of your skin. Your hands move around a lot throughout the day, which means they tend to wrinkle quite a bit too.
One of the best things about this dermal filler is that it isn’t only for your face. You can also use it on your hands. It will fill in any volume you might have lost in your hands, helping them appear fuller and healthier.
Other Things It Can Treat
This filler was originally formulated to help those with HIV who lost volume in their faces. Getting this filler can be a very effective way to look healthier and feel more confident in your appearance if you are struggling with HIV.
It can also be used to treat concerns like an asymmetrical nose, or if you’re just looking to give it a little more definition. If you have any scarring on your body, you can also use this filler to help reduce their appearance.
What Causes Common Aging Concerns?
It’s natural to see wrinkling and sagging of the skin the older you get. Several factors can contribute to these changes. Your skin is comprised of several important chemicals, including collagen which helps keep it firm and elastic. However, as you get older, your body begins to lose these chemicals.
This means that your skin is less full and that it loses its elasticity. Repeated facial movements will cause wrinkles to form, and volume loss will make the skin begin to sag.
What Exactly Is Radiesse?
Any of the above issues can be targeted by this dermal filler, providing you with a more youthful and healthier look. But what exactly is it? When you receive this filler, a very fine needle will be used to inject the product into your desired areas. The filler contains the ingredient calcium hydroxyapatite or CaHA, which is made using chemicals you can find naturally in your body.
When it’s injected, it will take up space under your skin, smoothing out any loose or sagging skin. This will, in turn, tighten it and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The CaHA will also stimulate your body’s production of collagen, helping it stay firm and healthy.
What Are the Benefits?
Along with being able to treat all of the above areas, there are several additional benefits to receiving this filler. Here are just a few of them.
One of the primary concerns for anyone looking for a cosmetic treatment is safety. There are lots of options out there that can help reduce the appearance of certain aging concerns. But not every option is right for every person.
This dermal filler is formulated to be extremely safe. It’s non-allergenic, FDA-approved, and you can trust it to get you the results you’re looking for with minimal risk of side effects.
If you have aging concerns like sagging and wrinkling, then you might be pretty eager to reduce their appearance as quickly as possible. Many of the treatment options available can take a long time to fully kick in—sometimes weeks.
Want faster results than that? This treatment might be the perfect choice for you. As soon as it’s injected into your skin, you’ll notice a subtle change in the way that you look. Over the next week or so, the full results of your treatment will be apparent.
No dermal filler can provide permanent results. But you might not be ready for a surgical procedure, or you might just not feel comfortable with something that invasive. Still, you may be looking for something long-lasting. Many dermal fillers only last a few weeks or months at the most.
There are some people who many want short-term results. But for those looking for something that’s going to last a long time, this dermal filler can provide you with the results you want. As long as you follow our post-treatment instructions, you can expect your results to last up to 2 years, depending on what areas were treated.
If you’re looking for an effective way to reduce the appearance of common aging concerns like sagging or wrinkling, surgical procedures are an option. But these procedures might not be right for everyone. They can be very invasive, which means a long procedure and weeks of recovery.
But this dermal filler can offer you long-term results using non-invasive methods. All that will happen during your treatment is that a small needle will be used to inject the product into your skin. The treatment itself will last under an hour, and healing will be fast and easy.
