Radiesse® Volumizing Filler

What we know as the natural aging process is actually a loss of the many proteins and carbohydrates that keep our skin smooth and firm. With time, we begin to notice lines and wrinkles as well as volume loss in the skin, which subsequently makes us appear older than we truly are. Oftentimes, our patients at Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts desire a solution that will correct their aging skin without making them appear as if they have had work done. That’s where dermal fillers come in, specifically Radiesse® Volumizing filler, which works with your body’s natural biological processes to rejuvenate your skin and help you continue to look younger over time.

Why Does Aging Occur?

Aging is inevitable, sure, but what causes it? When we were younger, our skin contained collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which are proteins and sugars responsible for supporting the structures of the skin, removing dead skin cells and maintaining moisture. All of these purposes are what created the supple and smooth skin that we enjoyed in our youth. As we age, whether due to environmental factors, lifestyle habits, heredity and more, our skin loses much of these natural attributes and leaves us with wrinkles, creases, age spots and volume loss.

It makes sense, then, that the dermal filler you receive to combat the natural aging process would help boost the production of collagen in your skin, which is precisely what Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is able to achieve. Radiesse® contains calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres, which immediately add volume to wrinkles and correct sunken features when injected. Over time, however, the microspheres continue to work with the body by providing structure and activating collagenesis (or the production of collagen) to replace dead skin cells. When collagen is stimulated, so too is elastin and hyaluronic acid whose job it is to improve skin elasticity and increase moisture — all of the components that help you look younger. Radiesse® is eventually metabolized by the body, but once it’s gone, your body’s natural collagen is left behind, which continues to enhance your skin for several months.

Benefits of receiving treatment with Radiesse® Volumizing Filler:

  • Provides instantaneous results
  • Nonsurgical and minimally invasive
  • Continues working after it wears off
  • Promotes the body’s natural collagen process
  • Results last for a year or longer
  • Produces natural and subtle results
  • Boosts confidence as it restore more youthful skin

Radiesse® can be used to treat many locations that are suffering from the effects of aging. Some of the most common areas include nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines as well as wrinkles around the chin, jowls and hands. Whether you have moderate or severe facial wrinkles and folds or significant volume loss in your hands, Radiesse® is a safe and effective solution.

Your Customized Radiesse® Experience

Radiesse® Volumizing Filler can be used on both the face and hands, providing natural results in both cases. When injected into the hands, Radiesse® can reduce the appearance of veins and tendons as well as restore lost volume. If you are interested in receiving treatment with Radiesse®, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Karlsberg or Michele, his Physician’s Assistant, who can evaluate your skin, run an allergy test and determine whether Radiesse® is a suitable treatment for you.

At VIDA, we create comprehensive and customized treatment plans for each of our patients. We understand that every individual ages differently, which means that your treatment options should differ as well. We work with you to provide procedures that specifically enhance your skin so that you can receive the most patient-centered results. Our goal is to create effects that look proportional to your facial and bodily contour and align with your personal aesthetic.

Dr. Karlsberg and Michele are both expert injectors who use a fine needle to administer Radiesse® Volumizing Filler into the fold of skin. The moment the filler is injected, volume will be restored to the treatment area and continue to retain this improvement over time. Although Radiesse® is long-lasting, it will wear off and require touch-up injections in order to maintain your results. However, as you continue treatment with Radiesse®, the collagen in your skin will become more active in keeping your skin looking young and refreshed. The amount of injections you receive will depend entirely on the area being treated and the severity of the condition you would like corrected. You can discuss your specific treatment regimen with Dr. Karlsberg during your personal consultation.

Overall, you can experience immediate facial rejuvenation that is also long-lasting — does it get any better than that? If you are looking for a nonsurgical alternative for aging skin, ask Dr. Karlsberg about treatment with Radiesse® Volumizing Filler. We would be happy to discuss your treatment options and determine whether Radiesse® is right for you.
