I am 49 years old, male and I have very deep smile lines that remarkably are still there even when I am not smiling. I believe that I would like injections of Radiesse into these folds. Is this product permanent? Will these injections make my face appear fatter?
Deep smile lines are one of the most common reasons people seek injectable facial fillers. Radiesse is one of the fillers that I use. It is ideal in filling the nasolabial folds and plumping the face. The longevity of Radiesse after injection can be up to 18 months. The key to Radiesse injections to the face as well as the injection of any other dermal filler or autologous fat is to not over inject any one area. Over injection of products into the face leaves the face full in areas that are normally not full, and will result in an unnaturally appearing face rather than a rejuvenated one.
