Radiesse is a dermal filler that provides a long-lasting natural enhancement look by adding immediate volume and stimulating new collagen growth. This injectable can help you quickly achieve a more youthful appearance. Many patients have used Radiesse to enhance areas of the face such as the cheeks and chin, fill and correct smile lines and wrinkles on the face, and rejuvenate the hands. Radiesse not only provides immediate natural looking results, but is also longer lasting than other temporary fillers.
During the procedure, Radiesse is injected under the skin using a needle. Results are immediate and continue to become more noticeable with time. Results can last up to one year or more. Mild swelling and itching may occur after the procedure, but these effects will wear off within a day or two.
Blunt Tip Needle (Microcannula) for Filler Injection
There are many advantages of a blunt tip needle for filler injections.
- Less pain: traditional filler injections need numerous needle sticks, but blunt tip needles need only two entry points for a typical filler injection. A longer, more flexible needle with a blunt tip is able to reach much larger areas.
- Bruise-free: The beauty of the blunt tip is it allows the needle to easily steer its way around blood vessels instead of cutting through them with traditional needles.
- More skin rejuvenation: Mechanical stimulation caused by the needle’s back-and-forth movement induces micro-trauma in local tissue, which stimulates fibroblast to produce new collagen and stimulates platelets to release growth factors.
