Radiesse® for Skin Tightening: Rejuvenate Your Look

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

As the iconic Erno Laszlo once said, “Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle.” This notion is the driving force behind the innovative non-surgical treatment – Radiesse®. Designed for those seeking skin tightening and rejuvenation without the invasiveness of surgery, Radiesse stands out as a leading dermal filler.

La Belle Vie Medical Care & Aesthetics in Draper, Utah, understands the intricate dance between advancing years and the skin’s need for volume and vitality. This is why we offer Radiesse, the revolutionary treatment that tailors its approach to individual needs, adeptly addressing skin laxity while enhancing firmness and texture.


How Radiesse Works

Radiesse® masterfully addresses the dual challenge of wrinkle correction and facial volume replacement. It works by providing both instant and long-lasting results when injected under the skin. Here’s how:< Composition: Radiesse is made up of tiny particles called Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, mixed in a water-based gel. CaHA is similar to a mineral found naturally in the body, making it safe for use as a dermal filler.

Immediate Volume: Right after it’s injected, the gel in Radiesse quickly adds volume to the skin, helping to smooth out wrinkles and folds immediately. This results in an instant improvement in the look of the treated areas.

Collagen Stimulation: The lasting effect of Radiesse comes from its ability to stimulate collagen production. The CaHA microspheres act like a framework that helps your body grow new collagen. As the gel is absorbed over time, these microspheres keep working to encourage your body to produce more collagen.

Gradual Absorption and Long-Term Enhancement: Eventually, the body naturally breaks down the CaHA microspheres, but the new collagen that has formed around them stays put, maintaining the skin’s enhanced appearance. This new collagen structure provides support for the skin and can last for over a year, depending on things like skin type, age, and where it was injected.



Multifaceted Skin Rejuvenation

Known for its ability to adapt to diverse aesthetic needs, Radiesse® offers broad versatility across multiple treatment areas.

  • Facial Enhancement – Radiesse® effectively addresses natural volume loss and contour deficiencies, enabling a refined and youthful visage. Patients opting for facial rejuvenation can expect diminished facial folds and a smoother skin texture, enhancing their overall facial aesthetics naturally and safely.
  • Hand Aesthetics – Radiesse restores lost volume and improves skin quality, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking hands. The procedure fits seamlessly into a routine of comprehensive care, emphasizing both aesthetics and health.
  • Neck, Décolletage, and Other Body Regions – Radiesse® is equally effective in treating areas beyond the face and hands, such as the neck and décolletage. These regions, susceptible to visible signs of aging, benefit greatly from the tightening and volumizing effects of Radiesse®, which restore skin to its firmer, more elastic state. Additionally, its versatility extends to rejuvenation of the buttocks, thighs, and knees. 


The Procedure: What to Expect with Radiesse Injections

When you start a Radiesse treatment plan at La Belle Vie Medical Care & Aesthetics in Draper, Utah, you can look forward to a personalized experience that combines top-notch aesthetic improvement with focused care. Here’s what happens:

Pre-treatment Evaluation – Before anything else, we conduct a detailed evaluation to get to know your skin’s unique needs and your beauty goals. This consultation helps us create a Radiesse treatment plan that’s tailored just for you, aiming for the best results while keeping you comfortable and safe. This personalized approach improves your results and shows our commitment to care that revolves around you.

The Injection –  The area to be treated is usually cleaned and may be numbed with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Radiesse is injected using a fine needle placed directly under the skin. The product itself contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to help reduce pain during the procedure. The practitioner then typically massages the areas to evenly distribute the filler.

Post-Injection Care – After the injection, taking proper care of your skin is crucial. We will recommend specific massage techniques to ensure the Radiesse is evenly distributed, helping to prevent any unevenness and enhance the look of the treated areas. We provide detailed instructions on how to look after your skin following the procedure, reflecting our commitment to thorough, patient-focused care.


The Benefits of Radiesse

  • Immediate Results: Radiesse provides instant volume upon injection, allowing for immediate improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
  • Long-Lasting Effects: The effects of Radiesse can last a year or more, thanks to its ability to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production over time.
  • Natural Collagen Stimulation: By promoting the production of natural collagen, Radiesse helps strengthen the skin’s structure, leading to more natural and durable results.
  • Versatility: Radiesse can be used to treat a variety of areas, including deep lines around the mouth, cheeks for added volume, and even the back of the hands to restore lost volume.
  • Minimally Invasive: The treatment is non-surgical and typically requires only local anesthesia, making it a minimally invasive option for skin rejuvenation.
  • Biocompatibility: Made with Calcium Hydroxylapatite, a substance naturally found in human bones, Radiesse is biocompatible and rarely causes any allergic reactions.
  • Gradual Improvement: Besides the immediate volumizing effect, the gradual growth of natural collagen leads to continuous improvements in skin texture and firmness.
  • Minimal Downtime: Patients usually experience minimal downtime and can return to daily activities shortly after the procedure.
  • Natural Appearance: The results look and feel natural, enhancing facial features without the stiffness sometimes associated with other fillers.
  • Safety: Radiesse has a strong safety profile, backed by years of clinical studies and widespread use.



Combining Radiesse with Other Medical Spa Treatments

Integrating Radiesse with other medical spa treatments can significantly enhance overall aesthetic results, offering a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.

Pairing Radiesse with Botox r other neuromodulators provides a dual-action solution: Radiesse adds volume and structure to the skin, while Botox relaxes the muscles that contribute to dynamic wrinkles, addressing both static and dynamic aging signs for a thorough anti-aging effect.

Laser treatments improve the skin’s texture by reducing surface imperfections like fine lines, scars, and hyperpigmentation, complementing the volumizing and contouring effects of Radiesse. This combination ensures a more pronounced improvement in both the skin’s surface quality and its underlying structure.

By removing the outer layers of dead skin and promoting new cell growth, chemical peels refine the skin’s texture and clarity. When used alongside Radiesse, which provides deeper structural support, the result is a more vibrant and youthful appearance.

Combining Radiesse injections with hydrating facials maximizes results by enhancing skin volume while deeply moisturizing and revitalizing the skin, promoting a smoother, more youthful appearance with immediate and long-lasting benefits.
