There are many injectable dermal fillers on the market for you to consider when trying to turn back the hands of time. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle filler offered by Seguin, TX medical director Dr. Melanie Carreon and our only Filler injector since 2006. Radiesse is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and for correcting age-related volume loss in the hands. Men and women who might not have a lot of time for repeat visits love the long-lasting results (one year) of Radiesse. A water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the look of your skin without an invasive surgery. Radiesse has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely contour your facial features. It can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a custom procedure plan that restores your skin. Look several years younger and boost your confidence with Radiesse injectable wrinkle fillers at LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, near New Braunfels, San Marcos, San Antonio, Austin TX.
Men and women who are in good health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are great candidates for Radiesse injectable treatments. It can treat smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines in the corners of the mouth. Radiesse is also safe to address age-related volume loss in the hands to make them softer and younger looking. You should not have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell Dr. Carreon about any allergies (severe or not) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.
Radiesse injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at LCS Medical Spa in about 15 – 30 minutes after the consultation. First, you will be seated comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel only mild discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick, but if needed, a numbing agent will be applied to the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the skin. After the procedure is complete, a cold compress can be applied to help alleviate swelling and bruising.
WHAT TO EXPECT
After your treatment, you may see some redness, bruising, and swelling. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be concealed with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call LCS Medical Spa. Most patients see some results immediately with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers — around 10 – 12 months. You should talk to Dr. Carreon during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
