RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler

RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that is used to restore facial volume to smooth out signs of aging. For many patients, results can last a year or more. RADIESSE® treatments are offered at Dr. Marta Recasen’s MediSpa in Glendale, CA.

Why choose RADIESSE® volumizing filler?

There are several reasons why the RADIESSE® volumizing filler treatment is the preferred choice in cosmetic treatments. It is the only filler that stimulates the production of your own natural collagen with immediate results. It is clinically proven to last a year or more for many patients. Additionally, it is FDA-approved to be mixed with lidocaine to significantly reduce pain related to the injection.

How RADIESSE® works

Your skin gets its volume, flexibility, and strength from a substance called collagen that is produced in the body. As we age, the amount of collagen in the body breaks down, causing diminished facial volume and elasticity. This is what leads to the formation of wrinkles and facial lines that take away from your skin’s youthful, fresh appearance. To get rid of wrinkles, you must replenish the lost volume in your skin. The RADIESSE® volumizing filler does this not only by providing structure under the skin but by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen, leading to long-lasting results.

Where does it work?

RADIESSE® can be used in the upper face to bring volume to the cheeks and create a better balance with the lower face. It can also be used to treat marionette lines, smile lines, and increase lip volume.

What to expect

When you visit Dr. Marta Recasen’s MediSpa in Glendale, CA, you can expect a simple procedure performed by a qualified nurse practitioner. No anesthesia is required for the treatment; the RADIESSE® injectable is FDA-approved to be mixed with lidocaine, a common anesthetic, to improve comfort. The injections will be made into strategic areas to add volume to the face. Following treatment, you can expect to have a few red spots for about an hour, but you should be able to see results quickly and not require extensive recovery time.

What to Do About Skin Tag and Mole Removal in Glendale, CA

If you’re aware of an unsightly mole or skin tag on your skin and wonder whether or not other people have noticed it, chances are they have. So, what can you do to have these types of skin growths removed? You’ll find some answers here!

You Have a Choice When It Comes to Mole and Skin Tag Removal

One of the most cost-effective and efficient methods to remove moles and skin tags is with the professional assistance of a MediSpa near you or a MediSpa in Glendale, CA. The professionals on staff, such as Dr. Recansens at her eponymous MediSpa, will be able to provide several options for their removal. These options include:

LASER MOLE REMOVAL: An intense beam of light is used to heat the cells forming the mole until they begin to break down. The cells are reabsorbed into the body. This treatment is fast and effective with minimal chance of scarring as there is no cutting involved.

ESKATA TOPICAL SOLUTION: ESKATA is the first and only FDA-approved topical solution for mole removal. ESKATA is a quick, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure which can be used to remove moles. After treatment, there are no bandages, and you can return to your daily life. In many cases, two sessions are required for optimal treatment.

EXCISION WITH CAUTERIZATION: This option begins with the area being cleaned thoroughly and numbed. The mole is shaved with a scalpel. The shaven area is burned with an electrical device to stop the bleeding. An antibiotic cream, gel, or solution is applied to the area, and a bandage is used to cover the area.

EXCISION WITH STITCHES: This treatment requires the area to be cleaned thoroughly and then numbed. The mole or skin tag is cut out with a small border around it, and the wound is closed with stitches.

Unsure which one will work best for you? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Marta to learn more. And if you’re wondering whether or not you can treat skin tags and moles with at-home products, please keep reading to get some important information.

Do Over-the-Counter Mole and Skin Tag Removers Work?

Unfortunately, there is nothing as efficient and cost-effective as professional mole and skin tag removal in Glendale, CA. True, there are products available on the shelves and online. But the bottom line is that while they “might” have some benefit in the removal of the unwanted skin, it can take multiple product purchases and multiple months to even begin seeing results. Moles and skin tags can come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, with some being present at birth or others appearing over the years. With such a variety, there is no one-product-works-for-all.

Try KYBELLA® to Get Rid of Your Double Chin

Submental fullness, more commonly known as a double chin, is a surprisingly common concern for many people as they age. If this feature makes you feel self-conscious, you may want to consider the KYBELLA® treatment. This is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that kills the fat cells in the neck area permanently, and it is offered at Marta Recasen’s MediSpa in Glendale, CA. KYBELLA® is a good option for patients wanting a gradual improvement to their facial profile with the result of a younger and thinner appearance.

How KYBELLA® works

KYBELLA® utilizes synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is actually found naturally in your body and is involved with the breakdown and absorption of fat. By strategically injecting a synthetic version of the acid into the chin, unwanted fullness can be eliminated from that area. Once the fat is destroyed, it is flushed out from the cells by the body. The number of injections per treatment and the overall number of treatment sessions will vary, but for most people, it will not need to be repeated once optimal results have been achieved. During a personalized consultation, a treatment plan will be created for you to determine the number of sessions needed.

Benefits of KYBELLA®

In addition to being a very effective treatment for double chin, KYBELLA® offers several other benefits:

  • It is a quick and efficient treatment.
  • There is no downtime necessary; you can resume your daily activities directly following the procedure.
  • It is safe and FDA-approved.
  • The fat cells are destroyed, so results are long-lasting.
  • Results are gradual, so your facial profile will change slowly with no dramatic, overnight change.
  • There is no surgery required.

Who is a good candidate for KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is only approved for adults aged 18 and over. To determine whether this treatment is your solution to getting rid of your double chin, make an appointment at Dr. Marta Recasen’s MediSpa in Glendale, CA today. We can provide you with a consultation for the KYBELLA® treatment as well as other cosmetic treatments that may be more appropriate for giving you the results you want.
