Improve Your Appearance with Radiesse

affirm-laser-treatmentAs you’ve grown older have you started to notice a loss of facial volume, especially in your cheeks? The signs of gravity and age are often most visible in the face, causing skin here to sag and droop over time.  Radiesse is just one of many dermal fillers that works by replenishing lost volume and restoring your own collagen, leaving you with flawless, natural results. However, Radiesse is different because it also works to restore volume within the hard to reach mid-face or cheek area.

Radiesse continues to improve your appearance for months following treatment as your body naturally replaces lost collagen in the face and cheeks. Radiesse is long lasting, with many patients seeing results for as long as two years!

Radiesse can repair the appearance of lines and wrinkles, scars and general volume loss. Although your results may be so dramatic that you’ll look like you’ve had surgical help – there is no downtime or invasive treatment involved with Radiesse treatment.

If you’re ready to improve your appearance and look years younger, contact Dr. Tresley and learn more about treatment with Radiesse.

More Information About Surgical Scarring

Patient infoNo matter what the reason that you’ve decided to undergo surgery – there is always a potential for scarring. This is true even with the best, most-experienced plastic surgeon in the room. The fact is that some patients are just more predisposed to surgical scarring than others.

It is important to realize this prior to undergoing a cosmetic procedure. It is also imperative that you discuss your entire health history, as well as any medications or non-prescription substances you are taking with Dr. Tresley.  This will allow him to make recommendations prior to your surgery to eliminate your scarring risk.

Some of the most common risk factors for excessive scarring include things that you cannot control, including your age, race and your genetic tendency to scar.   However, there are factors that can be controlled that should be considered prior to undergoing surgery and increasing your risk for visible scars.

These factors include:

  • The size, location and depth of your incision.
  • Tobacco use.
  • Alcohol consumption.
  • Caffeine consumption.
  • Hydration.

It is important that you be as healthy as possible prior to undergoing cosmetic surgery. This includes staying well hydrating and avoiding the use of tobacco products completely. In fact, tobacco use can actually cause the skin around your surgical incision to blacken and die. This is an extreme reaction but very possible with tobacco use during the two weeks leading up to surgery or while in recovery.

To learn more about your chances for surgical scarring and ways to improve your cosmetic surgery outcomes, contact Dr. Daniel Tresley today.
