Does Radiesse Work Instantly?

Published on July 12, 2019

As you get older, you can’t help but notice those tiny fine lines, folds, and wrinkles on the outer corners of your nose and mouth, cheekbones and forehead. As you age, your face loses volume and fullness due to the loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Over-the-counter creams, lotions, serums, pills, etc. can only get rid of the lines and wrinkles to a certain extent. 

Fine lines and facial wrinkles can make you look much older than you actually are and make the face look old, gaunt and drawn. Dermal fillers and injectables can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles from the face without damaging the rest of the face and restore a youthful outlook. There are many types of dermal fillers available in the market today. Radiesse is a good option. 

What Is Radiesse? 

Radiesse is a type of dermal filler that helps in smoothing out any fine lines and moderate to deep facial folds, lines and wrinkles from the face including nasolabial folds – those that extend from the corners of your nose to the corners of the mouth. 

All kinds of lines, folds, and wrinkles on the face can ruin your facial appearance and make you look very old. Radiesse can eliminate these lines and make you look younger, more attractive, and beautiful. 

Radiesse can reverse the loss of volume from the face. It contains lidocaine, which is an anesthetic that prevents any feeling of pain or discomfort as it is being injected into your face. 

Radiesse is approved by the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration of the United States of America, and is completely safe to use on the skin. It has no side effects except that there might be some redness, swelling, and inflammation soon after. Radiesse is injected into your skin, but that is common with any dermal filler that you use. 

How Does Radiesse Work? 

Your dermatologist or cosmetologist will decide the amount of Radiesse you need, depending on the number of facial lines/wrinkles/folds you have. Radiesse fills in fine lines and wrinkles and works by adding volume to the skin. 

Using an injection needle, the surgeon injects the filler underneath the skin in problematic areas – near the corners of the nose and mouth, around the eyes, etc. Radiesse starts working immediately by adding volume to the skin, and the benefits of Radiesse continues to work over a long time even after the injections are given. 

It works by stimulating the facial skin to produce its own collagen naturally once again. The best thing about Radiesse is that it gets to work on your skin instantly and you can see the results right before your eyes. 

The benefits of Radiesse can last up to one year and even more. The results are immediate as well as long lasting, and you get your money’s worth. 

Talk to your dermatologist about whether Radiesse is the right dermal filler for you. Certain preparatory requirements need to be done before getting the Radiesse injections.
