Radiesse is a volumizing filler comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in gel form. Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Think of Radiesse as a step ladder for your own building blocks of collagen to produce and attach to. This production of your own natural collagen provides long lasting results.
Aging is a part of life, and as the years pass the skin starts to lose vibrancy and volume. Youthful skin has an abundance of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which give it the volume, the support and the suppleness we all desire. As part of the aging process, these natural support structures become less plentiful resulting in facial lines, wrinkles and skin laxity. This process takes away from the skin its youthful, fresh appearance.
The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume and Radiesse does just that. This gel can be used in multiple areas of the lower face. A consult with our specialist will help determine which areas are best for you and how much gel should be applied.
Radiesse is a safe and quick procedure that can be performed during your lunch hour. Before the treatment you will be advised to stop any medications that may be thinning to the blood, such as, Aspirin or NSAIDS. All patients at Millefiori are given a complete consultation and skin analysis on their first visit to the office.
If you are a candidate for the procedure the provider (Certified Physician Assistant) will examine the soft tissue of the face and assess the depth of the wrinkles/folds. Pre and post photographs are taken so you can see the instant results.
Anesthetic is usually not needed for this procedure. Radiesse is FDA approved to be mixed with Lidocaine (an anesthetic), which means the procedure will be much more comfortable. The provider will ease the gel under the skin and into the area of the fold. The product is then gently massaged into place. The procedure is quick and easy with instant results! Usually the injection will take only about 15-20 minutes.
