Radiesse® in Baden-BadenWrinkle treatment with Radiesse®
Youthfulness and attractiveness are often associated with smooth, fresh, healthy skin on the face, neck and hands. Our skin begins to age when we are around 25, as our bodies‘ natural production of collagen slowly decreases. By age 30, many people start seeing their first wrinkles, which deepen over time; how quickly it happens depends largely on the person’s genetics and lifestyle. Those wrinkles can make a person’s face look serious, sad, or grim. If you are bothered by these signs of ageing and want to recover your younger, more vivacious looks, Radiesse® in Baden-Baden can be an effective solution. Radiesse® treatment works for both men and women, and can not only smooth wrinkles on the face and hands, but also contour the cheeks, chin, and nose nicely.

What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a synthetic dermal filler that is injected directly beneath the skin to treat wrinkles and boost volume. Radiesse® is made up of microspheres of calcium hydroxyl apatite suspended in a water-based gel carrier. Calcium hydroxyl apatite, in turn, is comprised of calcium and phosphate, both of which occur naturally in the human body—for example in teeth or bones.
Is Radiesse® a permanent filler?
Although Radiesse® is a synthetic filler, it also contains natural components. Just like Botox® and hyaluronic acid injections, Radiesse® also breaks down gradually through the body’s natural metabolic processes. As a result, when the time comes, another round of Radiesse® in Baden-Baden can revitalize the effect. The advantage Radiesse® offers over hyaluronic acid is that Radiesse® also stimulates the body’s own collagen formation processes, so the effects last longer—a year to eighteen months on average. Depending on the patient’s age, skin type, lifestyle, metabolism, and the specific area being treated, he or she may not need touch-up sessions of Radiesse® in Baden-Baden for up to two years.
Application areas for Radiesse® in Baden-Baden
Wrinkles and loss of volume are sometimes visible early on, particularly in the face. Radiesse® dermal filler has a significant lifting effect, so it can also be used to plump up deeper wrinkles (e.g., on the forehead, around the mouth, nasolabial creases) and replace lost volume. In aesthetic medicine, Radiesse® is used not only to treat wrinkles and give patients a more youthful, radiant complexion, but also to contour facial features. Radiesse® is an effective way to lift cheeks, fill in chin dimples, and contour the jawline. Even smaller corrections to the nose are good candidates for Radiesse® in Baden-Baden. Besides faces, Radiesse® can also be used to make hands look younger and smoother.
Goals and expected results with Radiesse® treatment in Baden-Baden
Radiesse® in Baden-Baden is especially suited to patients seeking to correct deep wrinkles and contour their faces effectively. Besides its lifting effects, Radiesse® also offers the advantage of improving complexion. A thorough consultation and a comprehensive facial analysis will help our experienced specialist in plastic and cosmetic surgery determine if treatment with Radiesse® in Baden-Baden is right for you, or if perhaps a different method (e.g., hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Botox®, or Restylane Skinboosters™) might give you the anti-ageing effects that you desire.
What materials does KASG Ästhetik use?

Preparing for wrinkle treatment with Radiesse® in Baden-Baden
Prior to administering treatment with Radiesse® in Baden-Baden, we need to ensure that the patient will not have an adverse reaction to the ingredients. Since Radiesse® is made up of substances found naturally in the human body, it is generally very well tolerated, but if in doubt, we will do an advance allergy or intolerance test. As with other wrinkle injections, patients should avoid taking medications containing acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) for about two weeks prior to their Radiesse® session.
As part of your consultation with our plastic and cosmetic surgeon, you will receive detailed information on the Radiesse® treatment process, find out about alternative wrinkle treatments, and discuss risks associated with dermal fillers. Of course, you can also use that consultation as an opportunity to ask any questions or express any requests you may have for the specialist.
Radiesse® treatment in Baden-Baden: the procedure
First, we clean the skin in the treatment area. Most patients do not need anesthesia prior to injections of Radiesse® in Baden-Baden, but if the treatment is being done on a particularly sensitive area, patients can request a topical anesthetic or localized anesthesia. After that, we use a fine needle to inject the Radiesse® directly under the skin. How much of the dermal filler we use depends on the individual patient’s situation and desired results. Most patients will start seeing their expected results before they even complete their Radiesse® treatment session. If for some reason the Radiesse® treatment does not achieve the desired effect (a rare occurrence), we can do additional injections to correct the results.
Aftercare following wrinkle treatment with Radiesse®
The results of your dermal treatment with Radiesse® in Baden-Baden will generally be visible immediately after your session—your face or hands will immediately look younger and smoother. If you notice any mild redness or swelling, cooling the affected area regularly should help that subside. In our experience, any side effects will dissipate after no more than a day or two. Avoid sunbathing or tanning for a few days after your session.
The Radiesse® will stimulate your body’s own production of collagen in the months following your treatment. Once your body breaks the dermal filler down, the effects of your Radiesse® treatment will fade, but you can refresh them with another session of Radiesse® in Baden-Baden.

Are there risks involved in using Radiesse®?
Radiesse® treatment in Baden-Baden is considered extremely low-risk in terms of side effects, though a very small number of allergic reactions or signs of intolerance have been reported. Patients may experience temporary mild swelling, pain, discoloration, itching, or greater sensitivity to pain in the treated areas, but these reactions usually subside on their own within a few hours or days.
