Dermal fillers such as Radiesse may be the ideal companion to excellent skin care in Frederick

Best way to Keep Skin, Washington Dermatology Center

As we grow older, many of us learn that our skin has specific needs. Sadly, the likelihood is that we learn this lesson too late. The care that we provide to our skin when we are younger may be lacking, only to lead to signs of premature aging. If you see sunken cheeks, loose skin, or deep lines when you look in the mirror, you may feel older than you would like. Your appearance says a lot about you, and affects your level of self-confidence.

Correcting lines and wrinkles with dermal fillers such as Radiesse may be the best way to keep skin looking great well into your adult years. At Washington Dermatology Center, we take great care in devising the most suitable treatment for our patients from Frederick, Rockville, and surrounding areas.

We offer various dermal fillers to treat sagging skin, loss of volume, and wrinkles. Radiesse is similar to other fillers in that it adds volume where it has been lost. The immediate result of treatment is the decrease of lines and folds. Over time, dermal fillers break down in the skin, and are absorbed and eliminated by the body. Radiesse, however, continues to improve the skin even as it breaks down and leaves the body.

The unique formulation of Radiesse is what makes it a special dermal filler. The solution contains tiny microspheres of CaHA (calcium hydroxylapatite) in a thick gel. It is through the support of these calcium microspheres in the process of neocollagenesis, that collagen is regenerated. This ongoing regeneration of collagen in the skin is beneficial because this substance provides volume and resilience in the skin. As skin ages, the natural collagen network in the cells diminishes. The application of CaHA in Radiesse supports the ongoing production so that we may continue to enjoy our best skin as we age.

By stimulating collagen production with the right dermal filler, your dermatologist helps the skin do what it is designed to. The continued production over months that Radiesse is in the skin leads to beautiful, results that can last up to a year. Many patients continue to see improvement in their skin for up to two years.

Treating the skin with modern-day dermal fillers carries very little risk. Because Radiesse is not based on animal products, there is no risk of allergic reaction. Side effects of treatment do not normally occur. Should side effects such as swelling or bruising occur, they last only a day or two.

Natural, beautiful results from cosmetic dermatology treatments come from skill and precision. There is no better place to benefit from extensive experience than with your Board Certified dermatologist at Washington Dermatology Center. Contact us today at 855-314-1425 for your consultation.
