Radiesse, or ruby nail polish, is a wonderful new cosmetic for those who don’t want their nails to look too obvious. It is a very subtle way to enhance your nails, while still looking stylish enough to go out with. If you are considering Radiesse because you are unhappy with how your nails look or because you think your nails are too long, then there are a few things that you need to know before jumping into it. The biggest benefit to Radiesse is that it is extremely effective at enhancing the appearance of your nails, while not increasing the length at all. In fact, the increase in appearance is so slight that sometimes it may not be visible to the untrained eye.
Before you get started with any radiesse treatment, you first need to schedule a consultation with a board certified dermatologist to assess whether or not you qualify for it. Although you can get it done at your own home, getting it done by a professional helps ensure that you will get the full results. After the initial short list of potential treatments has been narrowed down, you will have one more chance to schedule your first consultation. This is when your dermatologist will determine whether or not you will be a good candidate for radiesse treatment.
After your first visit, your doctor will determine the best course of action for you based on your skin type, your recovery time from the procedure, your pain threshold, and the amount of sessions you require. Radiesse treatments typically range from two to four sessions with each session lasting from fifteen to thirty minutes. Your treatment will generally begin at the start of your week and continue through the end of your week. You may need additional sessions in between weeks, depending on how quickly you heal and if you experience any pain during the healing process. Your dermatologist should give you specific instructions for using any other products or applying creams following your Radiesse treatment.
