What is Radiesse?
Today, patients have several injectable dermal fillers that they can choose from when trying to replenish and revive their complexion. Radiesse wrinkle injections are wonderful for reducing mild to moderate lines and wrinkles on the face and for increasing volume in the hands. Patients who might not have a lot of time for repeat appointments appreciate the long-lasting results of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this treatment plumps and smoothes the look of your skin without undergoing surgery. Radiesse is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely and effectively contour your face. To help rejuvenate your skin, we can also combine Radiesse with other injections, such as BOTOX. Look several years younger with Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatments at Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL.
People who maintain good health and have concerns about mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are ideal candidates for Radiesse. It can improve marionette lines, smile lines, pre-jowl folds, and chin wrinkles. Radiesse is also approved to address age-related volume loss in the hands to make them look smoother and more youthful. If you're allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in Radiesse, we do not recommend this treatment. Please make sure to tell Dr. Schlyer if you have any allergies (severe or not) or if you have a history of any bleeding disorders. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within several years, you should not receive Radiesse treatments.
Our Injection Technique
At Renuvia Medical Center, we can complete your consultation and administer Radiesse injections during the same appointment. Generally, it takes about 15 minutes to administer Radiesse. To begin the procedure, we will have you lay in a relaxed position while we clean and mark your skin. Most patients feel only mild discomfort during their procedure at the first prick, but if preferred, we can use a numbing cream on the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, is placed in an ultra-fine needle. During your treatment, the pre-marked injection sites will help Dr. Schlyer carefully administer Radiesse into the proper spots. After the treatment is complete, we will apply a cold compress to the treated areas, which helps alleviate swelling and bruising.
What to Expect
Following your treatment, you may experience slight swelling, redness, and bruising. These symptoms are normal, and they should subside in about 5 – 10 days. Patients can conceal these side effects with makeup. If symptoms last longer than ten days or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Renuvia Medical Center. Many patients notice an immediate improvement, and in about a month, they see the full results. Your face will look younger, softer, and lifted. Radiesse typically lasts longer than some of the other fillers: up to 1 – 2 years. During your consultation, Dr. Schyler will provide information on when to schedule your next appointment so you can maintain your results.
