At soul&beautyMEDx, we are a big fan of Radiesse. This injectable dermal filler does a great job of plumping up the skin and reducing deep wrinkles like the jowls and the nasolabial folds (those lines that run from your nose to your mouth). Research has also shown that Radiesse can actually stimulate the production of your own collagen, which allows a single treatment to last up to an entire year. (We do recommend periodic touch-ups.)
Sounds great, right? But if you’ve never used Radiesse before, you may feel a little concerned about having it injected into your face. (Many of our clients also use it to plump up the backs of their hands.) Your concerns are completely understandable!
First, Radiesse is FDA approved. Gaining FDA approval is no small feat, so you know that Radiesse has been thoroughly studied and tested. Radiesse is made from Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Over time, the body naturally metabolizes the CAHA microspheres. In other words, they are harmlessly absorbed, leaving behind the natural collagen they helped stimulate.
According to the Radiesse website, you should not use Radiesse if you are allergic to any components of the substance. In very rare cases, the filler has been injected into a blood vessel, which can create serious problems. You can drastically lower your risk of this happening by working with a qualified and highly experienced provider, like our team at Medx. Contact us to schedule a Radiesse consultation today.
