As we naturally age, we start to take notice of our skin’s visible loss of collagen, in the face especially, as well as other parts of our bodies; including our hands, décolletage, back of the arms and more. While the world of aesthetics might currently be buzzing about all things lasers, Skin Iowa, PC Physicians Assistant Michon thinks you should look towards dermal fillers too, and there’s one in particular she recommends you look into for all of your skin plumping needs.
Ok, ok, enough keeping you on the edge of your seat. One of the fillers Michon loves using on her patients is none other than RADIESSE®! Not only is it a more affordable treatment for filling and toning than most laser treatments, with RADIESSE, you get much more bang for your buck. RADIESSE fills and plumps wrinkled, folded and sagging areas of the skin, while simultaneously stimulating collagen production for instant improvement and long-lasting effects.
- What to Expect with RADIESSE: During your RADIESSE treatment, Michon will inject lidocaine (a numbing agent) into the targeted areas, to ensure you experience as little discomfort as possible. After injecting, most patients will notice an immediate improvement in volume, with full results appearing within a week of treatment. As far as longevity goes, clinical trials show RADIESSE lasting a YEAR or more in many patients. Best of all? RADIESSE is completely biodegradable and biocompatible and as it is metabolized, you are left behind with your body’s own naturally produced collagen.
- Where can RADIESSE be Used: One of the best things about this filler is how versatile it is! RADIESSE can be used on the nasolabial folds (from the nose to the corners of the mouth), marionette lines (on the corners of the mouth), pre-jowl folds (on the sides of the chin), chin lines, back of the arms, back of the hands, neck/décolletage, loose skin above the knee, abdomen, buttocks (to minimize cellulite) and more! With RADIESSE, the sky is nearly the limit.
- Benefits of RADIESSE: If we were to tell you every single thing we loved about this miracle treatment, we’d be here all day. . . so we’ll just share the highlights. RADIESSE is one of our quick and easy “lunch break treatments” that is so fast, you could pop over and get it done during your lunch break from work! We also love that it is minimally invasive in nature and takes fewer injections than other fillers. We also mentioned that RADIESSE is biocompatible and one reason why that’s important is because it means that there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction (because no one has time for adverse effects to fillers!). Finally, our patients love that RADIESSE results are visible immediately, last longer than other leading fillers and stimulate their natural collagen production.
So, there you have it, the one treatment Skin Iowa, PC’s PA-C Michon wishes more patients knew about. Do you have certain body areas you wish you could add a little ‘oomph’ to without the commitment of surgery? RADIESSE may be the perfect fit for you!
