As we all begin to age, the signs appear across our faces. Without intervention, the unwanted lines become more defined, and the wrinkles more noticeable. We do have some good news, though. There are ways to replace lost collagen! At OM Medispa in Elgin, IL, we provide a non-toxic, non-allergenic treatment with Radiesse to anyone in the Elgin, South Elgin, West Dundee, Carpentersville, Algonquin, Lake in the Hills, Huntley, St Charles, and Geneva areas.
Replacing Collagen With Radiesse
Radiesse is a type of dermal filler that has you seeing results immediately. The key component is a synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite that already occurs naturally in your body, making it a safe option. The moment it is applied, it works with your body to stimulate your natural collagen production to help smooth the texture of your skin for a youthful appearance!
How Does It Work?
Dermal fillers are used to restore facial symmetry and volume by recreating a smooth surface on the skin. As time goes by, our faces go through many changes as aging subjects us to facial bone loss and dermal collagen degeneration. Radiesse is a great, safe option for those looking to restore collagen in their face.
This filler helps to restore facial volume while smoothing out the many signs of aging. Dermal fillers help to stimulate the secretion of collagen when they are injected into the dermal layer of skin. After 1-2 weeks, the body will absorb the dermal filler and new collagen will form at the treatment site. The best candidates to receive Radiesse are generally between the ages of 35 and 65 and in good health.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
With each patient, results vary, but typically the skin will appear slightly swollen. In most patients, there is little to no bruising. To alleviate the initial swelling, we provide ice packs. By the next day, swelling will dissipate, and after 1-2 weeks, you will notice a huge difference!
What Changes Occur In My Skin?
When Radiesse is applied to the skin, the volumizing filler will get rid of unwanted wrinkles and lines. You may also notice added contours to in areas of the face that have lost shape, including the cheeks and jawline. Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 14 months but vary between patients.
Depending on the treatment area, many changes will occur in your skin. When applied to the upper face, fillers can remove the signs of crow’s feet, giving you a more restful appearance. The primary purpose of application in the midface is to increase the prominence of cheeks and provide a youthful appearance.
As we age, many of us experience ‘drool’ lines. When applied to the lower face, these lines will become less pronounced. In many cases, dermal fillers can be applied to the lips as well to create a natural fullness.
