Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables. The dermal fillers available at Estea Medspa are a fast and effective and FDA-approved way to fight the signs of aging, like Botox®. But Botox treats dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles that form because of repeated facial expressions. It doesn’t do anything for the signs of aging that develop as your face loses volume over time.
That’s where dermal fillers step in. With these injectable treatments, the Estea Medspa team has a way to reverse one of the most noticeable effects of aging: volume loss.
Your skin relies on a protein called collagen to keep it plump and tight. That’s a problem because as you age, your body produces less collagen. The results are far-reaching. Collagen loss contributes to:
- Sunken cheeks
- Deepening facial folds
- Sagging jowls
- Thinning lips
Fortunately, with dermal fillers, your Estea Medspa provider can restore volume and help you look your best.
How do dermal fillers work?
The team at Estea Medspa uses Radiesse® dermal fillers. These fillers deliver immediate volume like other dermal fillers, but Radiesse has a key differentiator: It also stimulates collagen production.
It’s made from calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. The filler itself combines these microspheres with a gel. Upon injection, the gel immediately replenishes volume. Over time, the calcium hydroxylapatite stimulates collagen production, encouraging your skin to build a new network of collagen.
As your body safely absorbs the Radiesse, this new collagen replaces it, giving you long-lasting results. Radiesse lasts significantly longer than most other cosmetic injectables, with some people enjoying their results for as long as two years.
Your Estea Medspa provider can inject Radiesse wherever you need it, using it to reduce the appearance of:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Folds above your jowls
- Wrinkles at the corners of your mouth
- Chin wrinkles
If you’d like to see fewer lines on the lower half of your face, don’t wait to talk to your Estea Medspa provider about Radiesse. If Radiesse isn’t the right solution for you, they offer other treatments — like non-surgical facelifts with polydioxanone (PDO) threads — to help you reach your cosmetic goals.
What’s the dermal filler treatment process like?
Getting Radiesse takes just minutes, and there’s no downtime. This lunchtime procedure helps even the busiest people turn back the clock and look their best.
