According to a recent national survey, nearly 60% of the women surveyed – between the ages of 21 and 65 – said they’d choose a more youthful looking face over a more youthful looking body. And of the respondents, nearly 65% observed that the shape of their face has changed as they have aged, while nearly 45% noticed a decrease in cheek volume or fullness in the past 10 years.
Almost half of those surveyed also stated that they believe that if they lose volume in their cheeks, there is nothing they can do to replace it. But what they may not realize is that the problem is a result of age-related volume loss.
Aging skin loses natural support structures that help keep skin supple and youthful. As the years go by, levels of collagen and elastin decrease within the skin, resulting in wrinkles and creases.
So what’s the good news?
There is a non-surgical treatment option called Radiesse, which temporarily corrects volume loss in the cheek area.
Radiesse is a dermal filler used to plump the skin on your face. It is injected directly under the skin through a small needle. It immediately adds volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of Radiesse continue by naturally energizing your body’s own natural collagen.
Creams and serums that are dependent on your natural skin cycle typically require several weeks of continuous use before significant results are seen. Radiesse, however, provides instant results by precisely adding volume to skin only where desired. They are also much more natural looking and with much less pain than surgery, and side effects are generally limited to mild, temporary swelling or irritation at the injection site.
The amazing results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.
