Radiesse

Radiesse is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can safely and effectively enhance the features of the face. Radiesse is a soft tissue injectable implant that was employed in several medical applications for decades before its cosmetic benefits were discovered. Procedures similar to Radiesse have been used for decades to medically treat oral and maxillofacial defects, vocal cord augmentation, and radiographic tissue marking with great success. Radiesse cosmetic procedures can correct facial lines and wrinkles, eliminate the appearance of depressed scars, and enhance the shape and volume of the lips.

The compound delivered to the skin through Radiesse is similar to the mineral component found naturally in our bones and teeth. This makes Radiesse highly compatible with the body. No allergy test is required prior to Radiesse treatment as there is no risk of allergic reaction. The injection solution is made of consistently shaped and sized particles of a substance called calcium hydroxyl apatite. This Radiesse material has been medically proven safe and biocompatible.

adiesse is an excellent option for those who wish to avoid the complications associated with other dermal fillers such as bovine and solid implant materials. There are a variety of unparalleled benefits associated with the Radiesse technique. Radiesse produces immediate results with little downtime or risk of complications. The results of Radiesse are also long lasting, making this procedure very cost effective. Radiesse stays soft and pliable for years, without the risk of the implant problems associated with other procedures.

Radiesse procedure is performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon in a hospital, surgery center, or doctor's office. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis and does not require a general anesthesia. During Radiesse treatment, the patient will be prepped for the procedure and given a local anesthetic. The surgeon will then administer a series of small injections to the treatment area. A very small gauged needle can be used during a Radiesse procedure, mitigating the risks of treatment site complications.

er a Radiesse procedure, the patient is up and around almost immediately. Some swelling, discomfort, and slight bruising may occur following a Radiesse treatment, though these are typically minor and resolve quickly. While the results of Radiesse are immediate, it may take a series of treatments for a patient to achieve their aesthetic goals. Touch up treatments can also be easily administered, allowing a patient to sustain the desirable results of Radiesse.

While Radiesse for cosmetic enhancement is not covered by most insurance plans, most surgeons have options that allow a patient the means to feasibly finance their treatment.
