Smooth, plump looking skin is a sign of youth and something many people want. However, this is something that becomes hard to maintain as we get older. Over time, the skin will naturally start to lose some of its volume, leading to sagging and wrinkles. We all want to look younger, but aging is unavoidable and can start to affect your confidence. This is something many people think they just have to deal with as they get older. Fortunately, there are still ways that you can achieve healthy, youthful skin, even if the signs of aging are setting in. 

If you really want to make a difference in reversing the signs of aging, at-home treatments alone won’t be enough. For those who want younger-looking skin, consider getting Radiesse® injections in NEPA at Bruno Plastic Surgery. 

How Do Radiesse® Injections Work?

Radiesse® is a minimally invasive procedure that involves facial fillers being injected into the skin. This is a quick treatment that can be done in as little as 15 minutes, causes only slight discomfort, and doesn’t require any recovery time. The number of injections you need will depend on the results you want for your skin, so this varies from person to person. Radiesse® injections work to stimulate the collagen found naturally in the body and are long-lasting. Collagen keeps skin elastic and plump, but the amount of collagen the body can produce reduces over time, leading to signs of aging in the skin. With Radiesse® injections, your body is encouraged to produce more collagen, so the skin can begin to look fuller, smoother, and younger. 

Radiesse® is typically injected in the face, particularly around the mouth and nose. While the face is where many people get Radiesse® injections, you can also use it for aging skin on the backs of hands, where many people experience a loss of volume. Aside from correcting signs of aging, these injections can also help fill in the appearance of certain scars, such as acne scars on the face. Like most facial fillers, Radiesse® isn’t intended to help you get permanent results. Instead, these injections provide temporary results that can last for up to two years. Results from Radiesse® are visible immediately following the procedure, but it can take up to a week to see the full results as your body begins to produce more collagen. Some temporary bruising, redness, itching, and swelling can occur following the procedure.
