Radiesse Injections – Facial Fillers in Kansas City
Radiesse is an FDA-approved calcium-based dermal filler that acts as a temporary (1-2 years) correction for facial wrinkles and folds. Kansas City Aesthetics offers Radiesse for patients who wish to augment their cheeks or fill in areas on the sides of the chin. Radiesse can also be placed in the thick skin below eyelids. As the Radiesse injectable is made from calcium-based microspheres in a natural water-based gel, the treatment works well with the body to encourage the production of collagen and tissue regeneration. The Radiesse dermal filler is injected into the skin through a simple, quick procedure and encourages tissue growth in the treatment area for up to one full year.
Radiesse is a quick procedure normally completed within 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The face will be thoroughly cleansed and then marked with ink so that the practitioner can conduct the injections with precision. A numbing cream is usually applied before the injection occurs. The gel is delivered using a fine needle into pockets just underneath the skin until the right volume is achieved.
What to Expect
After treatment, there may be redness, swelling and even bruising around the injection sites, but these go away after several hours. Patients will be able to resume their normal routine; although strenuous exercise should be limited for the first 24 hours. Patients will see their results immediately, and the results will continue to improve because Radiesse stimulates natural collagen growth, which is an agent for healthy skin.
