Wrinkles have long been associated with the signs of aging. Although this is a correct association, there are other things that can contribute to appearance of wrinkles as well as fine lines. For example, such lifestyle habits as tanning and smoking can cause them to occur prematurely. Since fine lines and wrinkles are caused by a depletion in natural skin moisture, the only way to get rid of them is to replenish that moisture.
This is where dermal fillers such as Radiesse come in. Radiesse is a procedure in which a gel that contains microspheres to help fill out the skin is injected directly into the wrinkled areas. Something that many prospective patients are curious to know about Radiesse is whether it is safe or not. This procedure is indeed considered to be quite safe, and it has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration. The procedure itself only takes a few minutes to complete, and most patients are able to return to work soon after having the procedure done.
When the injections have been administered, they can last for a year or, in some cases, a bit longer. Another thing that prospective patients often ask questions about is in regard to how soon they will be able to see results after having Radiesse. In general, patients can see a difference almost immediately. However, it is important to note that it will take some time for the skin tissue to rebuild itself. Therefore, it will take a couple of weeks before the patients will see complete results.
