What Should You Avoid After a Radiesse Injection?

If you have lost volume in your hands or have lines and wrinkles on your face, you should think about using an injectable product called Radiesse injection to improve your appearance. At Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX, we will use gentle techniques to administer your injections. After your anti-aging treatment is complete, you will be able to enjoy smooth skin and attractive hands for a long time.

What Should You Avoid After a Radiesse Injection?

Receiving Radiesse injections is a very quick and comfortable process, and you will not be required to make dramatic or inconvenient changes to your normal schedule once you have completed your treatment. That said, we will tell you to temporarily avoid certain activities. Although your aftercare instructions will be personalized, you should not engage in behavior that could increase your blood pressure or cause you to experience excessive heat.

Once you have received your injections, you will need to avoid smoking or drinking alcoholic beverages. In addition, you should avoid using a steam room or going into a sauna. You will also need to refrain from completing a rigorous exercise class. To help your skin adjust to your new treatment, you should drink adequate amounts of liquid for at least 24 hours and regularly apply sunscreen to your target area for the next two weeks.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This Anti-Aging Treatment?

If you would like to fix mild to moderate wrinkles on your face, you might be a good candidate for this injectable product. In particular, you can use this aesthetic treatment to soften your marionette lines, chin wrinkles, or smile lines. In addition, we can use this injectable product to minimize lines at the edges of your mouth, augment your cheeks, and give your hands a full, refreshed appearance.

Before we improve your wrinkles or plump your hands, we will talk about your medical history. At this point, you should let us know if you have any allergies. If you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in this injectable, you will not be able to use this treatment. Further, you should not use this product if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or if you plan to become pregnant during the next one or two years.

How Will This Injectable Product Improve Your Appearance?

This unique filler will enhance the appearance of your target areas by stimulating your creation of new collagen fibers. Collagen is a type of protein that helps your skin appear to be youthful, strong, and firm. This injectable contains beneficial microspheres that are made of calcium hydroxylapatite. This substance, which is also known as CaHA, will encourage you to make larger amounts of collagen.

As these structural proteins increase, your skin will begin to look smoother and fuller. After you process the microspheres in this product, your new collagen fibers will continue to give you a renewed and youthful appearance.

How Should You Prepare for Your Injections?

Before you get your injections, you will need to let us know about all of the prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, and supplements that you are currently using. Under some circumstances, we will advise you to temporarily stop using certain medications or nutritional supplements before you receive this treatment. In addition, you should take a break from drinking alcohol and using products that contain nicotine.

If you are using this cosmetic treatment to minimize your facial wrinkles, you should not wear makeup on the morning of your appointment. You should also use warm water to wash your face before you arrive at our office.

What Should You Expect During the Injection Process?

You’ll have an initial consultation before we use this product to soften your wrinkles or plump your hands. If we decide that you are a good candidate for this product, we will complete your injections in a private, comfortable room at our office in Frisco. We will begin your anti-aging treatment by cleaning your skin and making temporary markings on your desired target area.

Since this cosmetic treatment is minimally invasive, you won’t be required to use anesthesia during your appointment. That said, we can ensure that you have a relaxing and comfortable experience by using a local anesthetic to numb your skin. Once this anesthesia has started to work, we will gently perform your injections. Next, we will apply a cold compress to your skin.

When Will Your Treatment Area Begin To Look More Youthful?

This injectable product will produce quick changes in your wrinkles and other aesthetic challenges. Although your improvements will be unique, you may experience positive changes in your target area within a couple of minutes. Over the next several weeks, your marionette lines, chin wrinkles, or other cosmetic imperfections will continue to become less visible.

How Long Will This Filler Last?

Many injectable products can only minimize your fine lines, deeper wrinkles, or other facial imperfections for a very short period. Since your improvements will be very brief, you will need to get frequent touch-up sessions. These frequent sessions can become very expensive, and you might have to spend less money on social events, clothing, and leisure activities. Further, you might have difficulty fitting regular cosmetic appointments into your usual routine.

Fortunately, you won’t need to add regular maintenance treatments to your budget when you use Radiesse to minimize your wrinkles or improve the fullness of your hands. The results of this powerful injectable may last for 12 to 18 months. Instead of regularly paying for touch-up treatments, you’ll have room in your budget for other important purchases.

How Can You Extend the Results of Your Initial Set of Injections?

You can preserve your youthful, smooth face by adopting healthy habits after you receive this anti-aging treatment. In particular, we will advise you to consume adequate amounts of water every day. If you have difficulty drinking liquids while you are working, you should consider using a smartphone application to help you remember to regularly consume water.

In addition to hydrating your skin, you should protect the tissues on your face and hands by using a strong sunscreen. Regularly applying sunscreen will lower your risk of developing age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines. Further, you can extend your youthful look by avoiding cigarettes and other products that contain nicotine. The nicotine in these products will harm the collagen in your skin and damage your ability to make new collagen fibers.

Can You Use Other Injectable Products To Fix Your Wrinkles and Cosmetic Imperfections?

In addition to using Radiesse to smooth your lines and plump your hands, we can administer many other types of injectable treatments. During your first consultation with us, we can discuss these options and craft a personalized treatment plan for you.

Botox

Botox is a very popular injectable that we can use to temporarily minimize fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead. As you raise your eyebrows and make other facial expressions, the movements of your muscles will cause lines to develop on the upper area of your face. These lines are called dynamic wrinkles. Botox will use a purified ingredient called botulinum toxin type A to minimize these changes in your appearance.

We can use this product to fix crow’s feet, lines that appear between your eyebrows, and wrinkles that form on your forehead. After we complete your injections, this product will temporarily prevent some of your muscles from moving. Relaxing these muscles will cause your dynamic lines to become less visible. In addition, we can use this product to decrease your risk of experiencing deeper lines as you continue to get older.

Kybella

Even if you exercise several times a week and eat a healthy diet, you might have extra fat under your chin. If you don’t like the way that your profile looks, you should think about getting Kybella injections. This injectable product can remove some of the fat cells that you haven’t been able to minimize by changing your exercise routine or daily diet. This product will use a synthetic type of deoxycholic acid to remove your stubborn fat cells.

We will usually start your treatment by cleaning your skin and putting a numbing gel onto your target area. Next, we will make several injections into the fat under your chin. Your Kybella treatment will usually last for up to 20 minutes. If you have a small amount of fat under your chin, you might be satisfied with your results after you receive one treatment. If you have a larger double chin, you might decide to receive several sessions.

Revanesse Versa

If you would like to change the appearance of your lips or facial creases, you might be a good candidate for Revanesse Versa. This dermal filler will use an ingredient called hyaluronic acid to fade your marionette lines and other wrinkles. In addition, we can use Revanesse Versa to augment the appearance of your lips.

Before you receive this treatment, we will review your cosmetic objectives and discuss any allergies or health issues that you have. If you are a good candidate for this treatment, we will usually be able to perform your injections at this time. In general, your Revanesse Versa treatment will take about 15 to 20 minutes to finish, and we can use a local anesthetic to help you feel comfortable during this process.

The Juvéderm Collection

The Juvéderm collection includes powerful fillers that can be used to achieve dramatic improvements in your appearance. Like Revanesse Versa, these injectable products will use hyaluronic acid to refresh your skin. If you are interested in correcting lines that appear in multiple locations on your face, we may advise you to use multiple Juvéderm products.

We can use Juvéderm Vollure and Juvéderm XC to fix your parentheses lines and other moderate to severe wrinkles that are located near your nose and mouth. The results of these fillers will usually last for one year. Similarly, Juvéderm Volbella and Juvéderm Ultra XC are long-lasting fillers that can improve the shape of your lips and reduce vertical lines in this location for up to 12 months.

Renew Your Appearance

If you would like to plump your hands or fill in your wrinkles, you should think about using Radiesse to achieve long-lasting improvements in your appearance. After we complete your initial set of injections, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of this powerful filler for many months. To learn whether you are eligible for this anti-aging treatment, you should set up a consultation at Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX.
