When you look into the mirror, do you feel excited about what you see, or has your skin begun to show signs of aging that leave you more dissatisfied than dazzled? There is no doubt that fine lines, wrinkles and creases across the forehead or around the nose and mouth can make you appear older. At Dr. J’s Elegant Reflections Med Spa, we get to know your unique needs – and then we formulate a plan for rejuvenation with the most appropriate product.
Dermal fillers are commonly used to restore fullness to lines and creases on the lower areas of the face. The benefit of treatment is an immediate improvement in your appearance. Amongst a variety of products, Radiesse stands out for a few reasons. Similar to other fillers, this product instantly bolsters volume and fullness in the skin, providing a beautiful lift. Also similar to other fillers, the plumping agent in Radiesse will be metabolized naturally by the body. This filler, however, pulls double-duty.
The Radiesse filler is sought by men and women in San Diego for its longevity. Based on calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHA, Radiesse has a thicker consistency than many other products. This makes it ideal for areas of thicker skin and also for men! What the calcium microspheres do is support the ongoing regeneration of collagen, the building block of supple, youthful skin.
The loss of collagen is one of the major factors in the development of lines and wrinkles. With passing years, the depletion of fluid and fat, combined with the weakening of the supportive collagen matrix adds up to sagging, aged skin. After a single treatment with Radiesse, many patients have enjoyed a rejuvenated appearance for as long as a year. Due to the ongoing structural support for collagen, results may diminish slowly over two years versus four to nine months as is common with other fillers.
Reducing the signs of aging has never been more simple. A brief consultation and assessment with Dr. Emery and you are on your way to a more refreshed, more attractive appearance. Radiesse may be used to treat mild to moderate lines and wrinkles with minimal redness and swelling following a few strategically placed injections.
We are committed to your comfort as well as your satisfaction! Learn more about Radiesse at Dr. J’s Elegant Reflections.
