Benefits of Radiesse over alternative dermal fillers for Agoura area residents
For patients ready to rid themselves of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, dermal fillers are often the answer. Dermal fillers are used to add volume to specific areas of the face to ease the signs of aging. Injectable fillers can help in reversing the aging process and slowing it down, allowing both men and women to enjoy the benefits of “aging gracefully.” One dermal filler commonly suggested for patients in and around the Agoura area is Radiesse.
Radiesse is a little different from other dermal fillers. While other fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is injected into fine lines, wrinkles, and folds to add volume by attracting water, Radiesse works in another way. Instead, this injectable is fabricated from a synthetic form of calcium hydroxylapatite, which allows it to not only add volume to areas of concern but stimulate the production of natural collagen. Collagen is what is lost that results in skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. When naturally restored, patients experience younger looking skin and improved texture.
Radiesse also lasts much longer than traditional fillers. Juvéderm and other dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid may last several months, while the results of Radiesse may be noticeable for up to two years. This is best for patients who want to limit the number of injections necessary over time to maintain the results.
Radiesse can be used on many areas of the face and can be used to treat:
- Chin augmentation
- Volume in the cheeks
- Facial contouring
- Lip augmentation
- Frown lines
- Nasolabial folds
Patients have a variety of injectables available through the practice of Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, MD. We offer a wide selection and can help patients determine which injectables are best for their specific needs and desires. All injectables work differently, so it is important to speak to a professional to find out which ones will have the best effect. Patients are also encouraged to consider other injectables such as neurotoxins (like Botox) to use in conjunction with fillers for amazing results. This is often referred to as a “liquid facelift” and can be a wonderful method of restoring youthfulness.
