For nearly everyone, unwanted signs of aging (such as wrinkles around the mouth and nose) cause an undesirable facial appearance. Luckily, dermal filler products like RADIESSE® have been created to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles, creases, folds, and other facial skin concerns by filling any hollowed regions.
RADIESSE® is an FDA-approved treatment that can provide a youthful appearance by addressing marionette lines, chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds (the lines that extend from the corners of the nose to the edge of the mouth), and correcting volume loss on the backs of patients’ hands.
RADIESSE® is an innovative product that has been used for many years in dental, facial, and orthopedic surgery. This filler consists of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a naturally-occurring constituent of the bone and should not cause inflammatory or immune reactions, rendering this injectable appropriate for many patients.
Patients with a history of harsh allergic reactions or who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not be ideal candidates for this filler. During your consultation with Dr. Messa, the benefits of RADIESSE® and other treatment options will be discussed to create a treatment plan that will help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
Treatments take approximately 20 minutes to complete and are performed directly in our office. A topical anesthetic or ice is used to ease discomfort during application.
RADIESSE® syringes are prepared for immediate use, so the gel formula can be injected strategically just beneath your skin to instantly correct facial lines and other soft tissue concerns.
Over time, the formulation stimulates your body’s natural collagen production for extended, natural results.
Swelling, redness, and tenderness may occur after your injection, so strenuous activities and sun exposure should be minimized until the following day. Most side effects wear off after 24 hours but can persist for up to a week.
Results typically last between six months and one year. Follow-up treatments may be necessary, depending on the severity of your wrinkles.
This safe, natural solution provides a youthful appearance by giving you smoother, fuller facial features. Patients often feel much younger after the treatment, boosting self-confidence and improving their overall satisfaction with their appearance.
