Radiesse® Treatment in New Albany, IN

Signs of aging can often be prominent in the lower face. Marionette lines, smile lines, and wrinkles on the chin can contribute to a more tired or aged look. With our Radiesse treatments in New Albany, IN, we can address facial wrinkles and loss of volume to help you look more youthful.

At The Ark Medspa, we offer a variety of different aesthetic services that are selected for their effectiveness and versatility. We always stay up to date with the latest technology and treatments because we want to help you look your best with as little downtime as possible. Radiesse provides these benefits for many of our patients.

What Is Radiesse? 

Radiesse is a biostimulator that can also add volume to the face. This product is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel carrier. It can be injected into certain areas of the face, particularly the lower half, to fill in areas that have lost volume or that have started to wrinkle and fold. This fast treatment can offer long-lasting solutions for deep nasolabial folds, lines at the corner of the mouth, and more.

How Does Radiesse Work?

The calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which are the active ingredient in Radiesse, can be beneficial for the skin because they stimulate collagen production when they are injected into the treatment area. Once in the skin, these microspheres act as a scaffold, supporting the surrounding tissue.

Then, the body has a natural immune response to the microspheres, recruiting fibroblasts which produce more collagen and elastin. Because of this, even when Radiesse has been absorbed by the body, you can still enjoy skin that is more elastic and has a more youthful and fuller appearance. 

What Can Radiesse Treat?

  • Smile Lines: Smile lines, also called nasolabial folds, run from the nose to the corners of the mouth and can become deeper with age. This can cause a more aged look in the lower half of the face. Radiesse can be used to smooth out these lines to give you a more rested appearance.
  • Marionette Lines: Marionette lines are the lines that run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin. Deep lines in this area can make you appear as though you are frowning even when you aren’t. Radiesse injections are suitable for treating this area. 
  • Corners of the Mouth: The corners of the mouth are another area that can make your expression seem angry or sad. Through our Radiesse treatments, we can fill in lost volume and lift the corners of your mouth for a more pleasant expression. 
  • Pre-Jowl Folds: Pre-jowl folds on the sides of the chin can lead to a more aged and hollow appearance. Radiesse filler provides volume for these areas, smoothing them and helping them to be more elastic. 
  • Chin Wrinkles: Chin wrinkles are another area that can be effectively treated with Radiesse. These downward-turned wrinkles can be smoothed away with Radiesse treatments, offering a non-surgical solution to these lines. 
  • Hands: Radiesse can be used for addressing the volume loss that can happen on the back of the hands as your skin matures. Because the hands are often an overlooked area that can have a lot of wear and tear, hand rejuvenation may be what you need to look your best. 

What Are the Benefits of Choosing Radiesse

Longer-Lasting Results

Radiesse injections offer results that can last longer than other types of dermal fillers. While the question of how long Radiesse can last will depend on many different factors, we find that this treatment can last for 15 months or more after injection. This is due to the collagen-stimulating properties that can continue working long after the product has been metabolized. 

Immediate and Continued Results

One of the benefits of Radiesse treatments is that, in addition to the long-lasting effects, this filler can also provide immediate improvement to lines and wrinkles. The carrier gel and microspheres provide immediate structure and support, allowing you to walk out of our office with more volume in your areas of concern. 

Non-Surgical Facelift

Radiesse is beneficial because it provides a non-surgical option for patients who want to treat wrinkles and mild sagging without having a surgical facelift. Radiesse can address many of the same areas in the lower face as a facelift but without downtime.
