Radiesse

Renew and add the much needed volume to your skin with our Radiesse treatments. With just one treatment session, this next generation volumizing dermal filler reduces the appearance of folds and wrinkles immediately, leaving you with fresher, younger looking skin. Clinical studies have shown that Radiesse water-based, biocompatible dermal fillers produce significantly better results compared to the leading hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Since Radiesse injectable gels also stimulate collagen production, your skin looks even better as time passes. The effects of Radiesse dermal filler treatments last for up to a year, sometimes even longer.

Our Radiesse Treatment

Our Radiesse dermal filler treatments are perfect for people who want to eliminate or reduce the appearance of smile lines or to enhance and sculpt different areas of their face. There is little to no downtime involved with this procedure, so it’s a great solution for people who are constantly on the go.

As we age, our skin loses a significant amount of collagen. This considerably reduces the skin’s volume leading to wrinkles and folds associated with skin aging. One way to get back the skin’s youthful glow and volume is to inject dermal fillers into the skin to replace whatever volume was lost over time and in effect, smoothes the skin out and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, folds and fine lines. Radiesse is a water-based injectable gel that contains minute calcium-based microspheres similar to minerals that can naturally be found in the body. It is injected into the skin and it quickly fills the skin out, replenishing the lost volume instantly. Once inside, it continues working by stimulating the skin’s natural collagen production. The body absorbs the microspheres over time and the skin is left with its natural collagen to keep the volume and shape of the treated area. It may take up to a year or more before a maintenance treatment is needed.

What to Expect with Our Radiesse Treatment

Our treatments are performed only by medical professionals and sessions are done in our offices after a thorough consultation with our patients. During the consultation, we review the patient’s medical history carefully to make sure that the patient does not have any existing medical condition or is not taking any medication that may cause an adverse reaction with this treatment. The whole procedure of injecting Radiesse® dermal fillers lasts only for about half an hour or less depending on the size of the treatment area. The procedure itself doesn’t hurt much, but a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area 20-30 minutes before the procedure to ensure patient comfort. Radiesse® dermal fillers are injected deeper into the skin compared to hyaluronic acid-based fillers because it has a thicker consistency and produces more plumping with every injection. After the treatment session, patients can go about their daily lives immediately. There may be a little bit of redness, bruising and swelling around the treatment area. These side effects are common among dermal filler injection treatments and usually resolve on their own. Ice packs or cold compress can be applied to the treatment area immediately after the procedure to minimize the chances of swelling or bruising to occur.
