The injectable that keeps on giving

There are many types of dermal filler available at Skin Care Fort Worth, each of which Dr. Damico knows the unique formulation and best filler choice to target specific regions where wrinkles and hollows form. Radiesse® is specifically designed to both restore volume in key areas of the face and stimulate new collagen production to provide more natural rejuvenation.
Smiling lets the people around you know that you are feeling good, though you may not be happy about the lines that appear when you do. As time goes by, nasolabial folds can form along with other wrinkles and creases on your face, making you appear older, and even tired or upset. Patients who want to do something about these lines frequently choose Radiesse®. Dr. Damico offers the dermal filler Radiesse® to his clients who want to restore lost volume and smooth out their wrinkles with results that last for a year or more.

What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is what is known as a dermal filler, literally filling in areas where reduced volume and vital skin components have led to a lined or sunken look. Specifically, Radiesse® is made up of a mineral-like compound found in bones, though the injectable cosmetic’s production process does not involve any actual animal products. The compound, known as calcium hydroxylapatite, is delivered as tiny spheres suspended in gel.
The particular formulation found in Radiesse® serves two purposes: First, it provides instantaneous correction of wrinkles and folds by filling out the skin and producing a rounded, more youthful look. Second, it triggers natural collagen production, which further restores lost volume and revitalizes skin that has lost its beneficial collagen to environmental damage and age.

What does Radiesse® treat?

Radiesse® is frequently used to treat the nasolabial folds mentioned above, which appear as lines that begin to either side of the nose and stretch to the corners of the mouth. It also corrects marionette lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth, chin wrinkles, “pre-jowls,” and a general down-turning of the mouth that can create the impression of a permanent scowl or frown. Its nature as a filler makes it ideal for temporary augmentation, too, bringing more defined contours to the temples, nose, cheeks, chin, and jawline.
However, the most notable treatment done with Radiesse® at Skin Care Fort Worth is for your hands, as the filler is the only FDA approved dermal filler to correct volume loss in hands. Radiesse® allows Dr. Damico to create rounded, youthful contours for your hands which you may feel make you look older than you are if your hands have a harsh, bony structure.

What can I expect from a Radiesse® treatment session?

Dr. Peter Damico personally administers Radiesse® to patients at Skin Care Forth Worth, bringing his extensive medical experience and eye for aesthetic balance to every treatment session. He uses a cannula for his injections, which has a blunt tip (as opposed to a needle’s sharp point) that allows it to slide more easily into the skin and avoid puncturing blood vessels. By using a cannula, Dr. Damico is able to provide you with an experience that results in less discomfort and reduced bleeding and bruising. Cannulas can also improve accuracy, allowing for desirable results and leading to shorter visits.
