Get Lasting Results with Radiesse®

Radiesse® dermal fillers can address sagging and wrinkled skin by adding volume and stimulating natural collagen in areas that shrink with age. As a non-surgical treatment, Radiesse can offer patients long-lasting results with fewer risks. Dr. Lloyd G. Van Wyck can help patients determine if a dermal filler like Radiesse is right for them during a consultation at our Ottawa, ON, office.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments. Many are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, making them safe and effective. In addition to the hyaluronic acid, Radiesse also consists of calcium-based microspheres, which stimulate new collagen growth. These fillers are injected into areas such as the cheeks and lips to enhance volume and minimize wrinkles.

What can Radiesse Treat?

Radiesse is a good solution for patients who want to address heavy wrinkles and lines in addition to volume loss. Dr. Van Wyck can inject the dermal filler to address lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in:

  • The lines that stretch from the outer corners of the mouth up to the outer edges of the nostrils
  • The lines that extend down from the corners of the mouth
  • Sagging skin on both sides of the chin due to volume loss
  • Wrinkles that extend horizontally across the chin
  • Volume loss in the hands to minimize the appearance of veins and tendons

Dermal fillers are frequently referred to as “lunchtime procedures” because they are quick and require little to no downtime. Radiesse is no different: in just 30 minutes, you could see a dramatic difference in your appearance.

This dermal filler can also treat a downward-turned smile that makes it seem as if you are frowning all the time. The ingredients in Radiesse make it a safe treatment option for a wide range of patients, especially those who may not want to undergo plastic surgery.

Minimally Invasive Treatment

Dermal fillers are frequently referred to as “lunchtime procedures” because they are quick and require little to no downtime. Radiesse is no different: in just 30 minutes, you could see a dramatic difference in your appearance.

To minimize pain, Dr. Van Wyck can mix the Radiesse filler with lidocaine, an anesthetic. Then he can inject the filler into any problem areas on the face or hands. Radiesse starts working immediately. Because it stimulates the body’s natural collagen over time, you could enjoy continued benefits for up to a year or more. Should you want a more permanent solution, you may want to consider the benefits of a facelift

Following the injection, you may notice some mild itching, swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects usually subside within a few hours. There are generally no other side effects, so you should be able to return to work or resume your other activities immediately following treatment.
