09 Dec Benefits of Radiesse Injections
Have you struggled with deep wrinkles and creases to the extent that it has had a negative affect on you? It may be time to consider Radiesse. Radiesse is dermal filler that contains tiny calcium hydroxylapatite particles suspended in a gel. If you inject Radiesse under the skin, it smoothes the wrinkles and at the same time stimulates the production of collagen which is responsible for healthy looking skin. Radiesse is used in the treatment of nasolabial folds, better known as facial creases. It adds lost volume to the back of the hands. Once you use Radiesse, your skin will begin looking renewed and vibrant as when you were younger.
You must avoid using Radiesse if these conditions apply:
- You are pregnant
- You are breastfeeding
- Have a history of severe allergies
- Have a bleeding disorder
- You are allergic to lidocaine
- If you have a skin infection unless it heals
Radiesse injections do come with some risks, which is why we suggest you receive your injections from a physician such as Dr. Reddy who specializes in this area. While injecting Radiesse, it is possible that the product can accidentally be injected into the blood vessel. If this happens, it is very dangerous and can cause serious complications which may be irreversible, though such occurrences may be minimal if they take place. Possible side effects from such a complication include vision abnormalities or possible blindness, stroke and permanent scars to the skin. It is important to consult a doctor immediately if you experience changes in your vision, notice signs of stroke and white appearance on the skin. Signs of stroke include numbness in your arms, face or legs, difficulty while breathing and severe headaches just to mention but a few.
An obvious risk factor includes possible skin infection due to the product being injected through the skin. Bear in mind that it has not yet been proved if Radiesse is safe or effective if it is carried out on the lips or the region that surrounds the eye. It is advisable to consult your doctor before using the product. Inform your doctor if you are on blood thinners or if on any medication that can inhibit blood clotting, aspirin, for example. The drug may cause bruising on the skin after injection. It is important to let your doctor know you have injected Radiesse since it can be detected during X-rays and CT scans. Don’t leave out any information about an injury you might have had; even what you consider of no importance.
There are possible side effects of the product. If the procedure is performed on the hand, you may experience pain, itching, redness, swelling and formation of lumps. Some have stated that, after injection, it was difficult to carry out their daily routine activities. It is advisable to avoid strenuous activities and exposure to the sun until the swelling and the redness go away. Preferably, take a break for at least 24 hours. If you experience side effects that you are not comfortable with, or the side effects persist for some time, it is wise to contact your health care provider. Consider Radiesse, it is worth it. The results are awesome.
