Imagine young-looking, wrinkle-free skin. Dr. Messa has found that the use of certain fillers like Radiesse® may be the best treatment available depending on the depth of the lines and the patient’s skin type.
Radiesse® does not require allergy testing. Radiesse® is an innovative product that has been used for many years in prosthetic implants in dental, facial and orthopedic surgery. The product consists of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a normal constituent of the bone and, therefore, should not cause inflammatory or immune reactions.
This filler is now being used for filling nasolabial folds and lines in the face to reduce signs of aging.
Radiesse® treatments are performed in our office and take about 20 minutes. Radiesse® is pre-loaded in syringes for use in treating and correcting your facial lines and other soft tissue defects. First, we apply a little topical anesthetic. Then Radiesse® is injected into the wrinkle through a tiny needle placed just under your skin. Your results are immediate.
Depending on the area treated, most corrections may last six months or longer. Some touch-up treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of the wrinkles. The most positive factor in using Radiesse® is that patients don’t have to come back every three months and they still look great! If you want to get rid of your wrinkles with a safe, natural solution, Radiesse® may be for you.
During your consultation with Dr. Messa, he will explain the benefits of Radiesse® and any other fillers being considered and recommend the most effective for achieving your desired goal.
