Radiesse is a dermal filler that reduces wrinkles and other signs of aging by providing volume and lift to facial tissues that show signs of aging.
In addition to replenishing lost volume, Radiesse also stimulates the production of collagen, a natural component of your skin that provides fullness and support.
If you are concerned about the appearance of facial wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity, Radiesse may be right for you. Radiesse acts as a support structure underneath your skin. Radiesse is an ideal option to reduce that sunken appearance that sometimes occurs as we age.
If you have an active skin infection or a previous allergy to any of the ingredients in Radiesse, you may not be an ideal candidate for treatment. The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for Radiesse is to schedule an appointment at Cosmetique in Manhattan or Long Island.
Radiesse is a non-invasive treatment that can provide you with a younger, fresher appearance. Radiesse promotes volume and offers immediate and long-lasting results.
Because it is FDA-approved to mix with lidocaine, Radiesse can reduce injection discomfort. Your doctor will select one or more injection sites for each location to be treated. Topical antiseptic can also be applied.
We will determine the correct amount of Radiesse to meet your needs. The filler is then injected beneath your skin. Depending on the extent of the treatment, the procedure can take up to 15 minutes.
You may return to your normal activities after your Radiesse procedure, however, you should stay out of the sun. Minimal swelling usually subsides within 24-36 hours. There may be some discomfort and bruising that can be managed with medications.
Like other fillers, Radiesse is a temporary solution to the natural aging process. The results of your Radiesse procedure should be evident for two years or longer, but treatments must be repeated over the years to maintain the benefits.
