In the first part of our series on wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden, you learned about the different minimally invasive procedures available. Now, in part 2, we’ll focus primarily on Radiesse®, a very popular treatment option. This wrinkle treatment is especially effective for smoothing out deep wrinkles and boosting volume in sunken-in areas of the face, “turning back the clock” on faces, hands, or cleavage and making them look as young as patients feel. Check out part 1 of our series for an overview of non-surgical wrinkle treatments, information about how much minimally invasive procedures cost, and an explanation of how to find the right specialist.

Reasons to seek out Radiesse® treatment

Wrinkles and other signs of ageing are caused by the skin naturally losing elasticity over time; in some cases, various factors such as stress can cause them to develop early. Although they can lend people’s faces personality and a certain charm, many people of both genders are upset by the prospect of looking older than they feel. Radiesse® is an excellent way of adding volume to the face, reducing the appearance of even deep wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. And Radiesse® wrinkle treatment is good for more than just faces: it can also smooth out bothersome wrinkles on the backs of your hands, for example.

Radiesse® is used to contour the face as well—for example to plump up sunken, sagging cheeks or make small, non-surgical corrections to the chin or nose.

The positive effects of collagen

Besides plumping up wrinkles and sunken areas of the face, Radiesse® stimulates collagen formation in the treatment area. This promotes skin regeneration, making it look younger and helping the treatment results last longer. Even after the body has completely broken down the Radiesse® itself, skin continues to look young and healthy thanks to the additional collagen.

Advantages of gentle therapies at a glance

About one out of every three cosmetic procedures performed in Germany is minimally invasive. And it’s no wonder, considering all the advantages non-surgical wrinkle treatments have to offer:

  • No operations or anesthesia needed
  • Short treatment time
  • Short recovery time
  • Ready to go back in public immediately
  • Comparatively low treatment costs
  • Low-risk, few side effects

Radiesse® treatment procedure and results

Just as with all of our treatments at KASG Ästhetik, our Radiesse® sessions always start with an individual consultation, where our medical specialist in plastic and cosmetic surgery explains the procedure and checks whether Radiesse® in Baden-Baden will provide the best results in that individual patient’s situation. The specialist explains what this minimally invasive treatment can and cannot do, along with any risks involved, so that the patient has a realistic idea of what to expect—otherwise, he or she cannot make an informed decision about whether or not to go ahead with the treatment.

Radiesse® treatments are performed on an outpatient basis, and usually take less than 30 minutes. If patients request it, we can apply a topical anesthetic cream to the treatment area. Then we disinfect the area thoroughly and inject the treatment directly underneath the skin using a fine needle. Most of the time, we can evaluate the results even while performing the treatment. After the treatment is finished, patients are usually ready to leave the clinic following a brief recovery period.

What should I expect after treatment?

Just like with any injections, patients may experience mild swelling or bruising in the treatment area. If these do occur, however, they will fade quickly, revealing the results of the procedure. Although patients should take it easy for a few days after treatment—no tanning or sauna sessions, for example—they are ready to go out in public immediately. The effects generally last about 12-18 months, though the exact length of time varies from patient to patient.

What is Radiesse® made of?

Radiesse® is mostly made up of calcium and phosphate, both of which are found naturally in the human body. This is also what makes Radiesse® a non-permanent filler—after a certain amount of time, the body will break it down—but repeating the treatment is perfectly safe, and the natural ingredients minimize the risk of adverse reactions. Although allergies and intolerances are extremely rare, we can certainly test for them prior to treatment.

Radiesse® doesn’t just plump up wrinkles, though—it also stimulates the skin to produce more collagen, which gives the skin elasticity and firmness to make it look more youthful. In fact, what makes Radiesse® so popular with patients is that it provides a “complete package” by both filling in wrinkles and improving the complexion.
