t Awaken, we use the dermal filler Radiesse to correct various signs of aging and restore natural contours. Radiesse fills in wrinkles, adds volume, and rejuvenates the face. It shores up the underlying structure of the skin to combat skin laxity, and add bounce and elasticity.
Advancing age results in the depletion of natural collagen levels, causing the skin to lose firmness and fullness. Radiesse reduces these signs and gives the face a natural lift so that the face appears younger and smoother.
Add volume and fill in wrinkles with Radiesse
Radiesse is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. The calcium-based microspheres are held in a water-based gel. These elements combine to provide the volume and lift needed to rejuvenate the skin and reclaim a youthful appearance. Radiesse also stimulates your body’s natural collagen, and this helps to improve elasticity and firmness over time.
Radiesse is commonly used to:
- Fill in nasolabial folds (lines that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth),
- Volumize and lift the cheek area, jowls, and jawline.
- Fill in marionette lines (vertical lines that run from the corner of the lips to the sides of the chin).
How does Radiesse work?
A local anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area at the start of the procedure. A small amount of Radiesse is then injected under the skin using a very fine needle.
The combination of ingredients delivers immediate results. As volume is added, the surface of the skin appears smoother. As collagen levels increase, the regenerating results will continue to be seen in the following months.
How can you benefit?
Radiesse is a high-end dermal filler that strengthens the skin and makes it more elastic. It smooths smile lines, replenishes lost volume, and contours the jawline. The results are immediate and can last up to one year, more in some cases.
