Why Thousand Oaks patients should consider Radiesse
Dermal fillers are a popular option among our patients who wish to decrease the visible signs of aging. Dermal fillers are great because they are a minimally-invasive option to reduce wrinkles, redefine contours, soften creases, and even address volume loss.
In many cases, we may suggest a combination of injectables to address your concerns. For patients who seek an entire facial makeover, we will often suggest dermal fillers along with a neuromodulator such as Botox or Dysport. This combination is often referred to as a “liquid facelift” for its ability to transform the face without surgery.
Determining the dermal filler that is right for you depends on the type of correction that you need. Radiesse has become a popular option because it provides unique benefits. It’s is a soft, smooth filler that yields highly natural results and allows patients to maintain a youthful appearance for up to three years. It differs in its consistency from other hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane. Radiesse is a thick gel that provides long term collagen stimulation along with instant volume and lift. Collagen helps the skin appear supple, soft and youthful, with minimal lines and wrinkles. While many types of fillers require regular touch-ups, Radiesse lasts for a long time, and only requires a retreatment after a year or more.
Radiesse is most effective on low movement parts of the face, such as the nasolabial folds. This area of the face is often too deep to be treated with milder fillers like Juvéderm. Radiesse cannot be used to treat delicate lines, as it is most effective deep underneath the skin.
If you are self-conscious about your appearance because of lines, wrinkles, or folds on the face, a dermal filler like Radiesse may just be the affordable answer that you are looking for.
