Radiesse® in Boston, MA
Are you bothered by visible signs of aging such as wrinkles, folds, and creases that make you look tired and older? Radiesse® is a dermal filler that works to minimize these types of conditions by increasing collagen production to add volume and fullness where it has been lost. Neem Medical Spa, located in Somerville and Winchester, and led by board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu, offers Radiesse® injections to the residents of the Greater Boston area.
Radiesse® treatment is growing in popularity amongst those who wish to avoid the risks, expense and significant downtime associated with cosmetic surgery.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that treats moderate to severe wrinkles and creases. It helps increase fullness, volume, and elasticity in the outer layers of the skin while providing support from within the deeper layers.
The product consists of an injectable gel containing a base molecular structure that is delivered to deeper layers of the skin to provide lift and support to skin layers above the treated area. The molecular structure increases collagen production, which increases volume, suppleness, and elasticity. The result is skin that appears more youthful, smooth, and radiant.
Radiesse® is made with tiny microspheres inside a watery gel. These microspheres are calcium-based and resemble minerals the body recognizes, which is why allergy testing is not necessary. Eventually, your body will absorb the calcium microspheres, leaving only natural collagen behind.
Benefits of Radiesse®
Radiesse® is a unique dermal filler that provides benefits that cannot be achieved with other dermal fillers. Radiesse® has been shown to offer results lasting for up to two years. By stimulating your own body’s production of collagen, it triggers the natural skin repair process to gradually improve your appearance.
The benefits of Radiesse® include:
- Immediate results that continue to improve for three months
- Allergic reaction risk is very low
- Long-lasting results of up to two years
- Contains calcium hydroxylapatite, a component of healthy skin
- Fast treatment
- Involves no downtime or recovery period
Who Is a Good Candidate for Radiesse® Treatment?
Radiesse® is not for everyone, which is why you should discuss all your options with us to ensure that you would make a good candidate for treatment. You should know that Radiesse® is FDA-approved and safe for most patients.
We generally recommend Radiesse® treatment for those between the ages of 35 and 60 who desire an enhancement of their cheeks, chin, jawline, and nose without the need for cosmetic surgery.
Radiesse® is a good fit for adults who want a safe and effective non-surgical treatment option to correct:
- Wrinkles and frown lines
- Nasolabial folds (deep creases running along both corners of the mouth and nose)
- Marionette lines
Radiesse® can also help restore facial volume to those suffering from facial lipoatrophy, a condition in which the face loses fat, contours, and definition.
How Should I Prepare for Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is only approved for use by qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeons. It is rare to experience any type of allergic reaction after treatment because the formula contains only natural ingredients.
You should inform us if you have any allergies or medical conditions before undergoing your treatment. You should also inform us of any medications you take or if you have had other recent injections. Your treatment may be delayed if you currently have an infection, skin irritation, or inflammation.
Side effects are rare but include redness, bruising, tenderness, pain, swelling, and itching. These effects are normally quite mild and fade very quickly.
