If you long for a younger-looking appearance when you see yourself in photos or in the mirror, you may want to consider Radiesse®. This popular line of dermal fillers can take years off of your appearance without the hassle or risks involved with cosmetic surgery.
At Sargon Dental in Encino and West Hollywood, California, Mitra Tahvildarian, PhD, CFMP, AGNP — affectionately known as “Dr. T” — is pleased to provide Radiesse fillers for adults seeking a more youthful look. Radiesse fillers also can compliment your updated smile after dental treatment, such as teeth whitening.
Take a few minutes to learn more about Radiesse, including popular benefits and areas it can treat to give you a more youthful appearance.
What causes wrinkles and sagging
Skin sagging and wrinkles, including fine lines and deep folds, are common with increasing age. While most people experience some amount of them, several things increase your risk of severe wrinkling, including:
- Genetic factors
- Hormonal factors
- Having a particularly expressive face
- Losing significant amounts of weight
- Skimping on sun protection
- Spending ample time in the sun or tanning beds
Fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin also stem from lost elasticity and plumpness in your skin over time. Some of this has to do with lower levels of natural proteins such as elastin.
How Radiesse works
Dermal fillers work by adding volume or restoring plumpness to smooth your skin. Radiesse does so with a gel-like solution containing calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) that we inject strategically into your skin.
And it brings an additional benefit. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse doesn’t merely fill in lax and wrinkled areas. After your treatment, it gradually spreads throughout the treatment region and stimulates the production of collagen. This is important, given that collagen helps keep your skin supple, and your skin produces less of it with increasing age.
Each filler treatment is quick, taking less than a typical lunch hour, and the injected solution contains lidocaine for comfort. If you’re not interested in undergoing cosmetic surgery and other anti-aging efforts you’ve tried aren’t enough, this minimally invasive treatment can be a game-changer for your appearance.
Popular uses for Radiesse
Radiesse fillers can treat moderate to severe wrinkles and deep folds in a range of areas. They’re FDA-approved for use on your face and hands. Common concerns Radiesse effectively addresses include:
- Concave acne scars
- Lackluster complexion
- Loose, sagging skin
- Marionette lines
- Saggy jowls
- Sunken temples
- Thinning skin and wrinkles on your hands
- Thin lips
- Uneven jaw appearance
- Vertical lip lines (aka “smoker’s lines”)
- Wrinkled nasolabial folks
Immediately after your treatment, you notice improvement. Within a week, you can expect to fully see your results while Radiesse continues to work beneath your skin to boost collagen. From there, your results may last for as long as two years.
