A consultation with Dr. Shumway to discuss Radiesse® treatments may be just what the doctor ordered!
What Is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is unique among dermal fillers as it replenishes the collagen in your skin. “Collagen replacement” has become one of the buzzwords in cosmetic treatments. Collagen is a naturally occurring substance that your body produces to support healthy, younger-looking skin by maintaining volume and elasticity. Your body produces less collagen as you get older. Without the supporting nature of collagen, your skin starts to sag and wrinkles form.
Is Radiesse® a Good Choice for Me?
Radiesse® is a minimally invasive treatment – no surgery, no incisions, and no recovery. Just a quick treatment with Dr. Shumway and you are on your way! Generally, Radiesse® is recommended for patients who are age 30 to 65 looking to reduce the lines around their mouths and noses.
