Aging is inevitable. One of the things that you will notice as you get older is that your face starts to lose volume and appears to sag. There are several reasons for this. The most common reason is that the skull starts to lose bone after we pass into our 30’s. Modern cosmetic surgeons, in their attempts to optimize facial rejuvenation, have really embraced volume replacement techniques to provide their patients with a very natural looking rejuvenation.
WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?
In Denver, Colorado, a very common method for adding volume back into the aging face is to use a great product known as Radiesse. Radiesse is an injectible filler that has been shown to provide long-lasting volume. Radiesse, also known as Calcium Hydroxylapatite, can be used in many places. It is FDA-approved to be used in nasolabial fold augmentation, vocal cord injection, and radiopaque marking, amongst other uses. It has been used for the last several years, in off-label ways, to add volume to various areas of the face.
HOW IS IT USED?
In my cosmetic surgery practice, located in Denver, Colorado, I use Radiesse to augment areas such as the cheeks, brow, cheeks, chin, jawline, and chin. With my specialization in rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, I prefer to use Radiesse to add height to the dorsum of the nose or fill in defects after nose surgery.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS?
Use of fillers like Radiesse is generally safe! This fact is one thing that accounts for the popularity of injectible filler usage. That being said, it is not recommended that Radiesse be used in the lips. The reason for this is the high probability of lump formation after use in the lips. Radiesse needs to be massaged after use to prevent irregularities in other parts of the face.
