Radiesse for Chin Rejuvenation Treatment

Radiesse for Chin Rejuvenation Treatment

03 September

The chin defines the shape and sculpture of the face. Chin remodeling can create a drastic appearance to a person's face. Sometimes, there are individuals that want to augment their chin but have a fear of permanent surgical interventions. Fortunately, there are many nonsurgical options available, with one of these options as simple as injecting an implant.

One of the most suitable cosmetic fillers for this task is Radiesse. The sterile, white, and nonimmunogenic gel supplied in a 1.3ml prefilled syringe is biocompatible with the human body, as it has nearly the same chemical composition as human bones and teeth. The gel is made up of synthetic 30% calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a sterile gel of carboxymethylcellulose; glycerin; and water for injection. Once injected, the gel will deposit CaHA microspheres into the extracellular matrix of the skin and begin exerting its mechanism of action.

This mechanism of action involves the CaHA signaling the fibroblasts to produce new, strong, and firm collagen. The new product will bind itself to the CaHA, which acts as a scaffold for the new layer of collagen. Simultaneously, the gel carrier dissolves to allow for the gradual growth of this collagen. The available phagocytes will metabolize CaHA into small calcium and phosphate ionic residue. As the filler content disintegrates, the new collagen will maintain the growth and firmness of the skin.

Technique for Radiesse Injection

The principle method for chin augmentation is similar to a midface augmentation. After all, both processes are carried out in response to the gradual depletion of fat, muscle, and soft tissues as well as other aging processes. On the chin, there is a pronounced creation of sunken pre-jowl defects and lines. With Radiesse, the volumizing effect can help to define the chin to be sharper and well-defined. It also helps to smooth out marionette lines that appear near the chin.

It is recommended to mix Radiesse injection with lidocaine to reduce any burning sensations caused by the injection process. Advance the needle deep into a position just below the border of the mandible so as to avoid any superficial lump formation. For an even distribution in this large area, combine the cross-hatching and fanning injection techniques. This procedure can also help to reduce any wrinkles, such as marionette lines.

Result and aftercare

The practitioner should also fully understand the dimensions of the whole face to achieve the optimal result. After completing the injection, the injector will gently mold and massage the gel to conform to the contour(s) of the treated area(s), and avoid any excessive projection, which is known as “witch chin.”

Although there is no downtime, patients need to minimize their exposure to the sun or other extreme heat conditions for at least 24 hours after the treatment. This is to reduce any adverse side effects.

Within the first two weeks, the area of injection will feel firm and tough. The filler will soften up after this period as it conforms to the neighboring tissues.

Conclusion

Radiesse is a unique cosmetic filler that is beneficial for chin remodeling and augmentation. As it is biodegradable and promotes natural collagen synthesis, the filler has long been regarded as generally safe and efficacious by doctors. Clinics can include this long-lasting solution as an option for their patients.
