Westlake Village residents who want long lasting dermal filler rely on Radiesse
As a person ages their body changes and one of those changes is a reduction in collagen. This diminishes your skin’s volume and elasticity and can result in lines and wrinkles. Dr. Panagotacos and her staff can help restore the youthful appearance of your skin with Radiesse.
Radiesse is dermal filler that can be used to correct lines, wrinkles, and facial folds that are the result of lost volume. Radiesse has both short-term and long-term benefits; it is almost like getting two treatments in one injection.
Radiesse is created from a water-based gel that has calcium-based microspheres suspended in it. As soon as it is injected, the gel begins to fill the void, reducing the appearance of the wrinkles; this is the short-term benefit. Long-term, the calcium-based microspheres stimulate your body to produce natural collagen. This helps to restore skin’s elasticity and youthful appearance. As the gel begins to break down, your body reabsorbs it and the calcium-based microspheres. It is biocompatible, which makes it safe and eliminates the need for allergy tests.
Radiesse is very long lasting, the effects are evident for a year or more, but it is not permanent. It will be necessary to schedule touch up appointments to maintain the results. Dr. Panagotacos, or a member of her staff, will advise you on how often you should receive supplemental injections.
Radiesse is only effective for static wrinkles (for example smile lines), it is not effective for dynamic wrinkles (frown lines and crow’s feet), but it can be used in conjunction with neuromodulators (Botox or Dysport). They work to relax the muscles that result in dynamic wrinkles, and the combination can help restore the skin’s youthful appearance.
To get the best results from dermal fillers and neuromodulators it requires a talented provider. This is why people in Westlake Village rely on Dr. Panagotacos and her staff, their patients can count on receiving quality care from a highly trained professional with outstanding results.
