There are a lot of things that happen to our body as we get older. One of the key things that happens when we age is we start to lose facial volume. This volume loss happens underneath the skin. It is a gradual process, but when it reaches a certain point, it becomes very noticeable. This is where dermal fillers like Radiesse® come into play.
For some people, volume loss happens almost instantaneously. You can actually look at some individuals and see that they’ve lost up to one third of their facial volume in just one year. Usually, though, when a person loses their facial volume that quickly, it’s because they’re either involved in yo-yo diets, they have been under a lot of stress, they became ill, or they have experienced some other form of trauma.
Regardless of if the volume loss happens over an extended period of time or if it happens overnight, the results of volume loss are the same. Your skin starts to slip, your appearance becomes hollow, and you start to develop wrinkles and creases.
With dermal fillers like Radiesse®, lost facial volume can be restored almost immediately. Dermal fillers, in many cases, can stop your skin from showing further signs of aging. This is great because the longer you can keep your skin in its position, the longer you can maintain your youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are agents that are injected underneath the skin. Dermal fillers usually have hyaluronic acid as their base. One of the great things about hyaluronic acid is that it is a sugar compound that is naturally found in your skin. Hyaluronic acid is what has given you your youthful appearance your entire life. In fact, one of the reasons why you’re losing facial volume is because your body does not have the ability to build hyaluronic acid like it did when you were younger. Since hyaluronic acid is something that is naturally occurring in the body, most people do not react negatively to dermal fillers.
Radiesse® is a very popular dermal filler. It has been used by cosmetic professionals for years and has helped them produce healthy, natural, vibrant results for their patients. When a person has this treatment done, they walk out looking like an improved version of themselves, and they usually walk out with an improved sense of confidence.
