radiesseAs we age, facial tissues will begin to lose elasticity, causing the skin to sag. The natural fatty deposits under the eyes, along the cheeks, and toward the jawline may also start to disappear, causing the features to become sharp and sunken. These changes can make the face appear ‘hollow’, looking tired and unhealthy. However, a fast visit to Skin by Lovely in Portland, or in Santa Monica in the Los Angeles area, can turn these early signs of aging around, resorting a refreshed, youthful appearance with dermal fillers like Radiesse.

Radiesse at Skin by Lovely

Radiesse is a well trusted dermal filler, used to replace lost the lost facial volume that occurs with age. The thick, calcium based gel creates a foundation for the lower layers of facial tissue, raising and plumping the skin. This product is also ideal for eliminating dark hollows under the eyes, creating more prominent cheek bones, filling in deep facial creases, and creating a more prominent chin/jawline. This filler is composed of a substance called Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA). These tiny microspheres of CaHA will improve the skin’s natural scaffolding, and provide long-term improvement in the skin’s appearance.

This treatment can:

  • Eliminate dark hollows under the eyes
  • Create more prominent cheekbones
  • Fill in deep facial creases
  • Provide symmetry and shape to the jawline

The Ideal Candidate for Radiesse

The perfect candidate for Radiesse can be anyone who wants to improve the signs of early aging, but does not want to commit to a surgical procedure. Patients should be in good health, show a clear understanding of the dermal filler process, and hold reasonable expectations for their upcoming results. To determine if this is the right treatment for an individual’s needs, a consultation appointment will be required prior to scheduling a treatment.

Radiesse Injections

A treatment with Radiesse will take less than an hour in the Skin by Lovely office; it is perfect for a ‘lunchtime lift’. A local anesthetic or dental block may be administered before the session, to increase a patient’s comfort level during the injections. The product is then applied to the predetermined areas of the skin with a very thin needle.

No downtime is necessary after a Radiesse session; patients can immediately resume their daily activities. It is common for the injection site to become slightly red and mildly swollen, although this will resolve in a short time.

Radiesse Results

The benefits of Radiesse are immediately noticeable. The skin will be lifted and smoothed, with improved shape and volume. In the coming weeks, as Radiesse encourages the body’s production of Collagen, the appearance will continue to improve. The benefits from Radiesse generally last between 18-24 months, sometimes longer. To maintain a youthful appearance, a repeat treatment can be performed as the results begin to fade.
