Discover great prices for Radiesse in Mexico with Medical Departures. If you want to do something about ageing skin that's making you look older than you feel - but don’t want surgery - it might be time to entertain the idea of undergoing a non-invasive treatment that helps combat fine lines and wrinkles.
Radiesse is one such option. This is a long-lasting yet temporary answer to tell-tale age giveaways on the face, including smile lines (nasolabial folds), marionette lines (the lines running down from the corners of the mouth) and the areas either side of the chin that sag because of volume loss, forming jowls.
It contains an active ingredient that is identical to natural minerals found in the human body. This ingredient – calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres – adds volume to the skin while stimulating the production of collagen – the main structural protein for generating healthy skin.
This is a quick, easy and effective treatment to give your face a pick-me-up. It won’t alter your appearance dramatically, but people will notice you look better – although they will never know why.
If you are vacationing in Mexico, you may want to treat yourself at one of our quality-checked clinics located throughout the country. The whole procedure will take less than an hour, and apart from a little redness and localized swelling, which disappears in a day or two, it won’t interfere much with the enjoyment of your holiday.
For Americans living near the US-Mexico border, it could well be convenient to travel to Mexico for Radiesse treatment; it will certainly save you some money compared to the prices at home.
We always recommend you choose your clinic with care, which is why we have a five-stage process for checking those clinics you'll find listed on our site, as well as the doctors and surgeons who practice there. This includes:
All of these measures give an overall picture which, taken together, are an accurate reflection as to reliability and quality.
The procedure typically takes between 15 minutes and an hour, depending on how many areas are being treated.
The appropriate injection sites will be selected and a local anesthetic administered to help numb the area. Radiesse is injected under the skin via a fine-needled syringe. Afterward, you may experience localized swelling, redness, itching or bruising but these will subside after a day or two. Most people are able to carry on with their normal activities immediately.
The effects of Radiesse can be seen immediately, but it may take three weeks for them to fully develop. The treatment lasts for up to a year and top-ups can be administered as required.
