Wrinkles and fine lines are part of the natural signs of aging. Some people do not like to be reminded of their age, so it only makes sense that they do what they can to hide their wrinkles. This is especially true of women, who end up wearing a lot of cosmetics.
Cosmetics can only do so much, and that is why some people decide to get Radiesse. This is a procedure that involves injecting the fine lines and wrinkles with a special biocompatible dermal filler. Before a person can seriously think about getting Radiesse, he or she must find out whether they are the ideal candidate for such a procedure. Generally speaking, Radiesse is best for fine lines and wrinkles that are moderate, at best. So, the right candidates for this procedure are usually between the ages of thirty five and sixty.
The Radiesse procedure itself is a very basic one that is performed by a dermatologist in an outpatient setting, under local anesthesia. First, the face will be cleaned with an antiseptic. Next, the dermatologist will prepare the amount of dermal filler that he or she has determined will be the right amount for the treatment. Lastly, the injections will be given. From start to finish, the procedure will take no longer than fifteen minutes. After the procedure is over, the patient might experience some swelling for the next few days, but after that the swelling should subside. In order to achieve optimal results, more than one treatment will be needed.
