One of the many visible signs of aging that can occur is changes in facial volume. After the age of thirty, adult men and women begin to naturally lose their collagen and elastin stores in the face. This causes the loss of volume in the cheeks that can give a hollowed, aged appearance. With our skilled and experienced team at Romo Plastic Surgery, men and women can restore the volume in their face and combat the natural signs of aging without plastic surgery. This can be done with an injectable known as Radiesse.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is just one of many cosmetic injectables available at Romo Plastic Surgery as an alternative treatment to surgical interventions. Radiesse is a gel injectable that is formulated with calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres. These microspheres are suspended in a carrier gel that is injected into the cheeks and around the mouth and chin to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This increases volume in the injected area that can last for many months. Radiesse is naturally dissolved and absorbed by the body over time, so continued injections of Radiesse are needed to maintain the desired results.
Where can Radiesse be used?
Radiesse is used in many areas of the face to combat the signs of aging. It is most commonly injected into the cheeks where the skin may have a sunken-in appearance due to volume loss. However it can also be used around the nose, mouth, laugh lines, and deep scarring from acne to smooth the skin and restore a youthful appearance.
Who is a candidate for Radiesse?
The ideal candidates for Radiesse injections are adult men and women between the ages of 35 and 60 years of age. Patients are educated on the results that can be achieved to ensure patients have realistic expectations. Patients should have a full evaluation completed with Dr. Thomas Romo III and discuss any and all medications and medical conditions that impact their health.
