Radiesse®

DO YOU SUFFER FROM BOTHERSOME LINES, WRINKLES OR FACIAL HOLLOWS?

Have visible signs of aging and sun damage taken their toll? Are you looking for a minimally-invasive solution for facial augmentation? Would you like a non-surgical way to regain the youthful appearance of your past? If so, now might be the right time to consider getting minimally-invasive Radiesse® dermal filler treatments at Medspa Deluxe LA.

Radiesse® is a cosmetic dermal filler used to treat deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. One of the most multi-faceted dermal fillers available, Radiesse® also treats lines around the eyes and jaw. At Medspa Deluxe LA, we regularly use Radiesse® as a liquid implant to augment the nose, cheeks, and chin or restore plumpness and vitality to withered hands.

HOW DOES RADIESSE® WORK?

Radiesse® is an injectable medication consists of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA is a substance found naturally in bones and teeth). Radiesse® produces near-immediate results, adding volume to your face and smoothing out the lines and wrinkles of your skin. Over time, your body metabolizes the microspheres, stimulating the production of your natural collagen to encourage long-lasting results.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR RADIESSE®?

Radiesse® makes a great anti-aging treatment for just about anyone. Whether you’re looking to add volume or smooth bothersome wrinkles, Radiesse® might be the solution for you. The ideal candidate for the procedure should be an otherwise healthy adult with relatively good skin elasticity. Radiesse® can be done as a stand-alone procedure or paired with other treatments for total facial rejuvenation.

RADIESSE® IS AN INCREDIBLY VERSATILE INJECTABLE. PATIENTS CAN TREAT A WIDE RANGE OF AESTHETIC CONCERNS INCLUDING;

  • DEEP-SET NASOLABIAL FOLDS AROUND THE NOSE
  • MARIONETTE LINES AROUND THE MOUTH
  • CROW’S FEET AND OTHER WRINKLES AROUND THE EYES
  • SUNKEN MID AND UPPER CHEEKS
  • HOLLOWS BELOW THE EYES
  • VOLUME LOSS ON THE NOSE OR CHIN


Radiesse® can also be a useful tool for improving the appearance of aging hands. Prior to beginning your treatment, we will conduct a thorough examination of your skin to determine if Radiesse® is appropriate to your specific skin condition. As calcium hydroxylapatite is found naturally in the body, no allergy tests will be necessary. We will also discuss your aesthetic goals prior to providing you with Radiesse®.

HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL TREATMENT TAKE?

Once the treatment area is prepared, the injection process takes just a few short minutes. Your skilled injector will use a very fine-gauge needle and a local anesthetic to ease any potential discomfort during treatment. Most patients tolerate the procedure quite well and are in and out of the office within the hour. Your treatment will consist of a series of injections over a period of a few months.

WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?*

Many patients see a noticeable improvement to wrinkles and volume loss immediately after treatment with an optimal outcome several days thereafter. Radiesse® continues to trigger long-term collagen production for about 3-months before being naturally reabsorbed into the body. You can expect the results of your Radiesse® treatment to last about 18-months. You can safely prolong the outcome of your procedure with touch-up treatments as aging continues.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?

Radiesse® is easy to fit into your daily routine because it entails little to no downtime. The majority of patients get back to their normal routine with minimal restrictions after treatment. As with any injectable, side effects can include redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at or around the injection site. Side effects are typically mild and short-lived when performed by a skilled practitioner.
