Harness Your Body’s Own Rejuvenation Powers

As we age, our smooth, pliant skin starts to lose its luster. Sagging and volume loss are common, especially around the mid and lower face. Part of the reason this occurs is because our bodies slow down the production of collagen and elastin over time. Collagen is a protein that is largely responsible for skin that looks hydrated and pleasantly firm and elastin provides that “snapback” look. Our Advanced Nurse Injectors often use Radiesse in Austin, Texas at The Piazza Center to boost collagen and elastin production.

What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse is injected subdermally to add volume to the face the same way other popular hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm or Restylane are. What sets Radiesse apart, however, is that its main active ingredient is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). CaHA acts as a catalyst for collagenesis, stimulating your body to produce more collagen and elastin; this means that Radiesse can effectively help your face rejuvenate itself. This regenerative aspect also means that the results of a Radiesse treatment lasts longer than many other fillers.

The Piazza Center Comprehensive Approach

Many people express hesitation when it comes to dermal fillers, because it can be very apparent when fillers are not done well. When dermal fillers are administered by highly trained experts who are well-versed in facial anatomy and how aging affects the face, results look natural and only enhance your existing qualities.

At The Piazza Center, we take high standards of care to a new level. We have observed through years of analyzing patient outcomes that a multipronged approach is the best way to achieve optimal results. When performing any type of facial rejuvenation, we assess the following areas: 

  • Skin - we examine your skin’s texture and tone
  • Muscle movement - this helps us understand where wrinkles develop on your face
  • Bone & fat - these areas help us understand the unique structure of your face

How Can Radiesse Improve My Appearance?

Are you interested in reducing signs of aging, but wish to avoid surgery? Radiesse can help subtly transform your face into a younger yet elegant look, helping you look younger while still being natural-looking and age-appropriate. Below are some common reasons patients seek Radiesse treatments in Austin with our team: 

  • Volumize and contour the face
  • Reduce facial hollows in the temples, cheeks, and under the eyes
  • Fill out deep nasolabial lines and folds
  • Define the chin, jawline
  • Plump and sculpt the cheeks to look more youthful

Are Radiesse Injections Safe? Are They Painful?

Radiesse is FDA-approved, and the chances of complications are very low. Like the other dermal fillers available at The Piazza Center, Radiesse is a top-tier product that has consistently good results and a high patient safety rating. 

The majority of patients find Radiesse injections extremely manageable, though we are happy to provide a numbing agent to ensure comfort. Most treatments take less than 30 minutes, and many patients return to their normal activities right after. 

Are There Any Side Effects?

Radiesse is like any other dermal filler, and side effects are mild for most. Mild swelling, redness, or itchiness may be present at the injection site, but will abate in a day or so. Unlike other fillers, patients do not need to wait 24 hours before exercising. It is best to avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and to wear a full-coverage hat and medical-grade sunscreen if you plan to spend time outdoors during the day. Situations with excessive heat should be postponed for about a day as well; this includes visits to hot tubs, saunas, and tanning beds.

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?

After your Radiesse treatment, any hollows present in your face will be filled in, and your face will take on a more youthful contour. Unlike other fillers, the results of Radiesse are cumulative; that means that your younger appearance will only continue to improve in the following months. Radiesse results can last from 18-24 months, with your body’s metabolic cycle dictating your specific results window. It is typical for patients to undergo Radiesse touch-ups every other year.
