Radiesse Bellevue And Kirkland

A person’s facial appearance dictates much of their life. It influences how they feel about themselves, expresses their emotions, and impacts how others perceive them. Therefore, it is no wonder that people are often overly critical of their faces or worried about changes due to aging, injury, or other factors. Some may decide to undergo cosmetic enhancements to alter their facial appearance. Among the most common are cosmetic injections such as and dermal fillers. While the majority of fillers address only mild signs of aging, others have the ability to enhance more pronounced tissue loss. An example is Radiesse. Northwest Face & Body provides the best Radiesse Bellevue and Kirkland have to offer.

Overview: Radiesse And Its Uses

Radiesse belongs to a category of dermal fillers known as semi-permanent fillers. While the fillers themselves are not permanent, they often do leave behind lasting (sometimes permanent) enhancements in the treated area. On average, the filler tends to last longer than other hyaluronic acid fillers. However, unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Radiesse and semi-permanent fillers cannot be dissolved.

There are several indications for the use of Radiesse. Unless treating severe tissue loss or a similar condition, Radiesse is typically only recommended for experience filler users. This is because it does come with more risk because it cannot be dissolved in the event of an adverse reaction or event. While rare, it is best that the patient understands what dermal fillers can and do achieve.

A few uses of Radiesse include:

One difference between semi-permanent fillers and hyaluronic acid fillers are that most semi-permanent fillers are not safe to use for lip augmentation. There are many reasons for this, but beyond the safety risks, they often make the lips too hard and do not provide natural results. Some providers also advise against using Radiesse under the eyes, though there are times where it may be recommended.

The Science Behind Radiesse

Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyapatite, which is essentially a combination of calcium and phosphate placed in a gel for smooth application. The calcium microspheres stimulate collagen production to add volume. Essentially, Radiesse forces your body to naturally plump the area via the healing process. The amount of collagen produced depends on several factors.

Like other dermal fillers, your body will slowly metabolize the filler. However, instead of the results going away, you may notice that the treatment area remains somewhat enhanced. Though, you may still need subsequent injections occasionally to achieve the desired results.

Benefits

Radiesse injections come with many benefits and advantages. Your injector will discuss these with you during your consultation. Among some of the benefits include:
