Smooth unwanted facial

Lines and wrinkles

As you age, your skin is one of the first to show signs of aging, such as loss of volume or wrinkles and fine lines. These small changes can have an impact on your appearance, especially if you leave them untreated for a long time. They can worsen over time, making you look older than you actually are.

You may have tried changing your diet and lifestyle, exercising, or maybe you have bought over-the-counter creams, ointments, and other treatments, but you haven’t seen the results you want.

This is where Radiesse comes in to reverse the signs of aging and restore a smooth, firm, and youthful glow to your skin! At Chesapeake Laser and Skin Care Center, we help our clients achieve healthy, smooth, and glowing skin that not only looks good but feels good using Radiesse.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used for smoothing out wrinkles, lines, and folds that develop on your face and hands as you age. It is also used for treating volume loss in the hands.

Radiesse is especially effective for smoothing out the lines and wrinkles that develop around the mouth and nose known as nasolabial folds. These creases usually extend from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth.

How does Radiesse Work?

When Radiesse is injected into your skin, it fills up the depression from within, which is why it is known as a dermal “filler”. It also stimulates the production of the natural collagen in your body, which is the protein that helps keep your skin looking firm and tight. As you grow older, your body produces less collagen, which results in loss of volume and elasticity in your skin, creating a loose, saggy, and droopy appearance that adds years to your appearance.

With the injection of Radiesse, the natural production of collagen in your body is stimulated, which leads to skin that looks younger, smoother, and firmer for a long period of time. These results can even last up to two years, and you can go for treatments again to maintain your appearance.

What is the procedure like?

If you want to receive Radiesse injections, the procedure is in-office and quite simple. Your doctor will give you local anesthesia so that you won’t feel any pain. However, feeling some discomfort with each injection is common.

After determining which areas to inject, your doctor will apply antiseptic in the area, after which the solution will be injected. The dosage depends on the severity of the wrinkles or loss of volume, the area to be treated, and the results you wish to achieve.

Usually, the procedure takes no more than 30 minutes, depending on the number of injections you need. You can go home immediately and return to your normal routine without requiring any downtime. It is recommended that you avoid exposure to direct sunlight for at least 24 hours and also avoid strenuous physical activities.

How long does it take to see results?

The results are immediately visible after your injections, and you will notice a difference in the texture of your skin. However, the full results will be visible after a week of receiving your Radiesse injections.
