How To Smooth Skin Wrinkles & Folds

The first wrinkle is never a happy sight. These creases, folds and ridges are a result of aging and some environmental and genetic factors. Below we’ve shared our most successful wrinkle treatment and explained why wrinkles form.


Why Do Wrinkles & Folds Form?

Wrinkles are one of the most visible parts of the aging process. As we age, our skin becomes thinner, drier and elasticity decreases. All of these changes make it harder for your skin to protect itself from damage. Facial expressions can also produce fine lines and wrinkles at a young age. Every a facial muscle contracts a groove forms under the surface of the skin. As you age, its harder for the skin to spring back, resulting in permanent grooves.

What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler. These products are a group of non-toxic substances, which are injected under the skin. Once injected, the filler smooths out fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, nasolabial folds and more. Radiesse helps to add contours to areas of the face that have lost their shape, like the cheek and jawline.

Radiesse’s most active ingredient is calcium hydroxylapatite, calcium also found in your teeth and bones. The serum immediately fills up targeted areas, producing instant results. As the gel moves through the area, it deposits microspheres of CaHA. These tiny particles act as a scaffold to support your skin’s weakened structure and trigger growth of new collagen. Within two to three years the CaHA particles completely metabolize as new collagen grows in its place.

Unlike other wrinkle fillers, Radiesse focuses on adding facial volume, and the results are instant.

Who Should Use Radiesse?

Radiesse treatments produce results on all skin types and colors. The active ingredients benefit those with significant volume loss, who are seeking to smoothen deep lines and folds.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid using dermal fillers. Also, anyone who’s recently used blood thinners is not good candidates for dermal fillers.
