His office is equipped to help patients with a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical solutions to create the best version of themselves. Many patients who are considering surgical treatments to address fine lines and wrinkles that develop with time may find that he offers a wide selection of nonsurgical cosmetic injectables to consider, including Radiesse™.
What Is Radiesse™?
Radiesse™ injections are growing in popularity for patients who want to improve their facial appearance without undergoing invasive plastic surgeries such as brow lifts, facelifts, or neck lifts. Radiesse™ is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite and is injected into the skin to plump up lines and wrinkles, as well as improve your facial contours. It is also used to improve the appearance of scars, such as acne scars or surgical scars. Radiesse™ injections can last for several years with regular touch-up injections, making it a popular choice for many people who are not ready for a permanent solution like surgery.
How Does Radiesse™ Work?
Radiesse™ injections generally consist of small amounts of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in either bovine collagen gel or human plasma gel carrier medium. The product is applied with a fine gauge needle on specific problem areas where there are deep folds or wrinkles that need to be filled out. This formula works by stimulating your body to produce collagen, a natural substance that helps your skin look firm and youthful. When injected properly, Radiesse™ can plump up the areas of your skin that have lost volume due to aging or scarring, giving you a more youthful appearance that is subtle yet still noticeable to others.
What Should I Expect During Treatment With Radiesse™?
Radiesse™ treatments are done in an outpatient setting by an experienced plastic surgeon or medical injector fully trained in this procedure. The area where the injections will be applied will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution before injections begin so as not to introduce infection into the injection site. A fine gauge needle is used to deliver the product just under the surface of your skin to achieve the desired results in the areas of concern.
