Radiesse Dermal Filler
Radiesse dermal filler cosmetic injections are used for the treatment of deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth — including smile lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. Patients can achieve an instant, long lasting, natural, youthful appearance in just one visit. Radiesse offers both volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging.
RADIESSE is unique in it's ability to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. There are no allergic reactions associated with this filler. There may be some bruising after the procedure but most patients return to normal activities the next day.
One of the advantages of Radiesse is it's long lasting results and proven track record of positive results. It has been extensively tested on more than 100,000 patients and received FDA approval in December 2006 for use in the United States and has been used world-wide for over 7 years.
Radiesse is made of a synthetic substance containing microspheres of calcium hydroxylapetite. Because Radiesse is made of materials very similar to those found in the human body (biocompatible substances), the risk of an allergic reaction to Radiesse is very small. Radiesse dermal filler gel contains an organic compound of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, as well as glycerin and sterile water. When injected, thin connective tissue forms so that the microspheres act as a filler that remains permanently implanted at the injection site location.
RADIESSE COSMETIC INJECTIONS PROCEDURE
Radiesse dermal filler cosmetic injections are adminstered personally by Dr. Marc Epstein. Typically, a topical or local anesthetic is used for Radiesse injections. After selecting the injection sites, Dr. Epstein uses a very fine needle to inject precise amounts of Radiesse in the skin. Patients may experience minimal discomfort from the needle injection. The procedure can take up to 15 to 40 minutes. Dr. Epstein recommends that his patients avoid sun immediately after their treatments. Radiesse cosmetic injections offer you long term corrections and will look and feel completely natural. Radiesse cosmetic injections require little or no downtime so patients can return to normal activities almost immediately.
