Injectables and radiofrequency treatments are the perfect combination if you’re looking for full-body skin tightening and rejuvenation. What can each of these treatments achieve and why should you consider a combination treatment with Radiesse in Kelowna? We have all the answers.
What is Radiesse in Kelowna?
Radiesse in Kelowna is a biostimulator or collagen-stimulating injectable. It works similarly to dermal fillers but uses calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) to stimulate collagen and elastin production and gradually plump the skin. Other fillers use hyaluronic acid to fill in deep facial wrinkles and add volume more immediately. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, Radiesse in Kelowna can aid in skin tightening procedures. Collagen and elastin are proteins that gives the skin volume, elasticity, and structure. By rebuilding collagen and elastin fibers, you can achieve a beautiful skin tightening effect in the treated area. New collagen and elastin growth also combats signs of aging and sets back the clock on skin aging.
What is Skin Tightening?
Body contouring and skin tightening treatment at Cerulean Medical Institute combines technologies with ultrasonic energy that lifts and radiofrequency energy (RF) that tighten the skin. As RF energy heats the skin, collagen and elastin are stimulated thereby tightening the skin. Ultrasound energy also helps to break up fat cells which is especially effective for cellulite treatment and elimination of stubborn fat pockets. Combining these technologies into one procedure for simultaneous fat reduction and tightening of loose skin results in exceptional body contouring results.
Why Should You Combine Radiesse in Kelowna with Skin Tightening?
Radiesse in Kelowna helps to attract fibroblasts which starts the process of skin tightening which is further enhanced and amplified with body contouring and skin tightening treatment. These are many reasons why you should consider a Radiesse combination skin tightening treatment:
1. Anti-Aging Effects
Along with skin tightening, one of Radiesse’s other functions is to target signs of aging like deep wrinkle, facial and neck folds. Radiesse also helps to improve skin tone and texture and can be used on the hands to plump crepey skin and improve the look of prominent veins and tendons that contribute to an aged appearance.
2. Combined Facial and Body Treatment
RF and ultrasonic skin tightening are used often to treat the body. Combining this treatment with Radiesse for the face allows for full-body rejuvenation with a more youthful facial appearance and toned body. Radiesse can improve age-related volume loss in the temples, jawline, cheeks and midface to augment your facial structures and lift hollowed cheeks.
3. Natural-Looking Results
Both Radiesse and skin tightening stimulate natural collagen and elastin production that develops gradually after treatment. New collagen and elastin will form with your natural contours so that the results enhance your natural look rather than change it. Additionally, fat that is eliminated during your body contouring treatment will be naturally flushed from the body.
4. Long-Lasting Results
Combining Radiesse with RF skin tightening maximizes new collagen growth to create long-lasting results. On its own, Radiesse lasts an average of one to two years and skin tightening treatments last 1-3 years. Results are not permanent because collagen induction can only slow skin aging, not completely stop it. Radiesse will add structure and strength to the skin and keep your results intact for many years.
5. Quicker Results with Continuous Benefits
The CaHA spheres in the Radiesse formula immediately plump the skin and then stimulate collagen and elastin production. Body contouring and skin tightening require a bit more patience since results will not be seen for 3-6 months. Combining Radiesse with your skin tightening procedure speeds up the timeline for when you can expect therapeutic results.
6. Volume Enhancement
While body contouring and skin tightening enhance the contours by reducing fat and tightening the skin, Radiesse can be used to improve the tone and texture of your skin, plump the skin and further contour your face and body. Radiesse injections can also be used in the buttocks for a non-surgical butt lift while ultrasonic energy eliminates cellulite dimpling.
7. Minimal Downtime and Recovery
Radiesse and skin tightening are safe, effective and non-invasive skin treatments. Radiesse injections might cause mild swelling and bruising that only last a few days. Body contouring and skin tightening can cause some redness that will only last a few hours. You can immediately return to work and other daily activities after treatment.
What to Expect During Radiesse Kelowna Treatment
Radiesse treatment at our Kelowna skincare centre is precise and virtually painless. After local numbing, a fine needle will be used to inject the Radiesse filler into the treatment area(s). Radiesse can be administered a couple of weeks before or at a separate appointment scheduled shortly after the body contouring and skin tightening procedure.
What to Expect During Body Contouring and Skin Tightening Treatment
Body contouring and skin tightening is a comfortable in-office treatment that requires no anesthesia. An energy based device handpiece will be placed over the treatment area to administer the RF and ultrasonic energy. Patients often say this feels like a hot stone massage. Almost any area of the body can be treated, including the stomach, chest, buttocks, arms, legs, thighs and back.
