If you’re looking for another solution for your wrinkles and don’t know where to start, begin your journey here at Primary in Bedford. We offer a plethora of relaxers and dermal fillers such as Botox, Juvederm, even Radiesse! Radiesse is a dermal filler commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Like Juvederm and other HA (hyaluronic acid) fillers, Radiesse stimulates the body’s collagen production. Because of the crosslinked gel-like consistency of HA fillers, patients can expect immediate and long lasting results.
How Radiesse Works
This treatment is administered via injection into the problem areas. The fine needles apply the product superficially, just beneath the surface of the skin. The HA gel attracts water beneath the skin, locking it in to provide moisture and a plump, or smooth surface. This injectable can be administered in fine lines or deeper depressions in the face, filling and lifting the creases for a youthful appearance.
Results of Radiesse
Radiesse can enhance volume where it has been lost, as well as aid in your natural ability to produce collagen. This means that you are receiving an immediate fix with long-term benefits. The solution is also absorbed by the body over time, leaving your body to its own devices with your own collagen until you’re ready for touch-ups. This filler can last up to a year or more for most patients. The side effects are mild and should subside on their own within a couple of days. Common side effects include what one might normally expect with an injection, such as minor bruising, swelling, redness and soreness.
