How Can RADIESSE® Help Reduce Acne Scars?

Featured Image

Acne scars are a constant source of embarrassment for many people. They can remind you of past breakouts even years after your skin has cleared up. When chemical peels and laser treatments seem too harsh, it's time to consider a different approach. An innovative dermal filler called RADIESSE can reduce the depressions associated with acne scars while helping you achieve smoother-looking skin.

We know that everyone has unique goals when it comes to their complexion. Call Flawless Salon and Medical Spa and ask nurse practitioner Patience Peale about RADIESSE injections in Butte, MT. We proudly tailor our services and procedures to fit your needs.

When other treatments are not suitable for acne scars

A number of treatments are available for facial scars, including chemical peels and laser therapy. They work by removing the top layer of tissue to reveal refreshed and rejuvenated skin underneath. However, these options may not be suitable for everyone. Some people experience adverse reactions to the chemicals used in peels, while others find laser therapy too harsh on their skin. Plus, both require multiple sessions for noticeable results. In these cases, RADIESSE can be a viable alternative for treating acne scars.

Why RADIESSE can be a better alternative

RADIESSE is a dermal filler made from tiny calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. CaHA is biocompatible — meaning it's safe to use in the body — and has been used in cosmetic procedures for years. When injected beneath the skin, RADIESSE provides immediate volume to the area and fills in depressions caused by acne scars.

RADIESSE also encourages collagen production, a vital protein that keeps our skin firm and smooth. As the microspheres are gradually absorbed by the body, new collagen forms in their place. This not only improves the appearance of facial scars, but it can also improve the overall texture and quality of your skin.

How RADIESSE injections work

Patience or a member of our team begins each RADIESSE appointment in Butte, MT, by assessing scars and determining the best possible placement for treatment. The area is then cleaned and numbed with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Next, RADIESSE is strategically injected into the targeted areas using a fine needle. The process takes less than an hour, and then you can resume normal activities at home or work.

How long does RADIESSE last?

RADIESSE results should be visible almost immediately after treatment and should last 1 – 2 years, so you won't have to worry about frequent touch-ups moving forward. And since this dermal filler also stimulates collagen production, you'll continue to see improvements long after your appointment. At Flawless Salon and Medical Spa, our clients love that RADIESSE provides long-lasting outcomes with minimal maintenance.
