What is Radiesse®?
Aging can be harsh for the loss of volume and increased laxity of our skin, from the delicate characteristics of our face down to our progressively maturing hands. Dr. Kestin provides an all-in-one solution for your hand and face revitalization that aims toward a naturally younger appearance.Radiesse is a non-surgical dermal filler that instantly replenishes volume and promotes natural collagen production. Radiesse is a gel solution comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres. Once injected, the microspheres immediately add volume to frail hands or moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles, while also triggering natural collagen production that promotes long-lasting results. As time passes, the Radiesse gel solution is absorbed and naturally metabolized, leaving your body’s natural collagen behind for extended improvements.
During a relatively quick treatment, Dr. Kestin carefully injects Radiesse under the skin, on the face or hands for instant volume enhancement. Injection areas include smile lines, marionette lines, corners of the mouth, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and the hands. Radiesse may be mixed with lidocaine to improve the injection experience for patients who are concerned about discomfort. There is little to no downtime or recovery required with this treatment, so patients can return to daily activities right after their appointment. Results can be seen immediately and can last up to one year or longer.
What are the Risks?
Similar to most dermal fillers, the most common side effects include redness, bruising, pain, swelling, tenderness, and itching at the injection site(s). These effects are mild and generally last for a short time. However, these are not all the side effects of Radiesse and Dr. Kestin will inform you about all the risks during your in-office consultation.
