What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler product that is used to add volume to the skin, smoothing out facial lines and folds. Radiesse® is commonly used for the treatment of nasolabial folds, although there are many other wrinkles that can be addressed with this treatment.
The Radiesse® formula is a smooth, water-based gel that contains small pieces of calcium. When injected into the skin, this formula integrates with the skin to smooth out wrinkles and folds. Over time, the body safely absorbs the formula, leaving behind its own collagen. This produces long-lasting results, as collagen helps maintain your results after the Radiesse® formula has been broken down.
Am I A Good Candidate for Radiesse®?
If you would like to increase volume while smoothing out lines and wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for Radiesse® treatments. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for Radiesse® is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer.
During your consultation, you and Dr. Mohadjer will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine if Radiesse® is a good fit for you. At this point, we will be able to help you schedule your treatment or find a suitable alternative.
What is the Radiesse® Treatment Like?
The Radiesse® treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic. This will help reduce any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Once the skin is numbed, the Radiesse® formula will be injected into the desired treatment area. The number and exact location of these injections will depend on your treatment goals. However, the injection process takes only a few minutes, so the Radiesse® treatment is often completed in less than 30 minutes.
What is the Radiesse® Recovery Process Like?
Radiesse®, like most injectable treatments, requires practically no downtime or recovery period. Immediately after your treatment, you may experience some redness, bruising, or swelling in the treatment area. These effects will fade within a few days of treatment. Despite these effects, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities immediately after your appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Radiesse®?
The results from Radiesse® will be visible immediately, as the formula instantly smooths out lines and wrinkles as volume is added to the skin. The results from Radiesse® are particularly long-lasting, thanks to the body’s creation of collagen. You can expect the results from your Radiesse® treatment to last up to a year or longer.
