Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in America. They provide a quick and effective solution to wrinkles and other problems. Radiesse is a dermal filler that unlike others, is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance you could easily find in any part of our body.
This dermal filler is the perfect option for those who prefer long lasting results. While the procedure doesn’t last more than 20 minutes, its effects can last up to 18 months.
Radiesse provides a softer, natural-looking results, and it’s exceptionally good for treating wrinkles and lines around the mouth, loose skin on your hands and hollows in your cheeks. It is meant to be used for your mid and lower face. As any other dermal fillers, the effects of Radiesse are temporary, but in comparison to the others, this one last the longest due to its thickness.
Depending on the injection location and the amount of filler injected, you can expect bruising and swell to last at least five days. That’s the main reason doctors recommend to schedule your appointment at least two weeks prior any important event like weddings or photoshoots.
If you want to reduce that downtime after the procedure, you could stop taking aspirin, vitamin E and Motrin two weeks prior the appointment. That will reduce bruising.
Keep in mind that you’ll see final results after the bruising and swelling have gone away, so be patient and wait for it to heal.
