Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery in the Washington area serves patients who are looking for non-invasive anti-aging solutions for fine lines and wrinkles. One of the most popular choices for reducing the appearance of aging skin is by using cosmetic fillers such as Radiesse.
Radiesse is a volumizing filler commonly used for patients who are dealing with lost volume in the face. This occurs due to reduced collagen. During the aging process, the natural stores of collagen break down and begin to cause skin laxity and diminishing facial volume. This results in facial lines, folds and wrinkles, which can cause patients to look and feel much older than they are.
Radiesse works by restoring the youthfulness to the skin. Many patients love that this injectable works for up to a year or more as it works differently from other dermal fillers. It not only adds volume, but does so with collagen production offering long-lasting results and gradual changes to the appearance. Many patients love the individual results they achieve with Radiesse versus other fillers and injectables.
Radiesse is FDA approved for cosmetic enhancement. It can be mixed with lidocaine to reduce pain or discomfort during injections. Patients are encouraged to visit a board certified dermatologist for injections to ensure safety and efficiency.
Dr. Burgess of the Washington area consults with patients to determine if they are appropriate candidates for treatment. Most patients with mild to moderate lines and folds who are in overall good health are good candidates for injectables. Patients must have realistic expectations and understand that injectables such as this do not stop the signs of aging, but rather slow them down to allow for graceful aging.
If you live in the Washington or Annapolis area, Dr. Burgess would love to see you regarding your current anti-aging solutions to find out if Radiesse would be a wonderful addition to your skin care routine.
