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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
