Radiesse® is a dermal filler that can smooth fine lines and wrinkles and is particularly effective at treating deep-set nasolabial folds (the creases between the nose and the mouth). Though this dermal filler can be used to achieve results similar to JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, BELOTERO BALANCE®, Sculptra®, and Restylane® Lyft, our patients at Pinsky Plastic Surgery who select Radiesse® often benefit from Radiesse®’s unique cosmetic advantage – the stimulation of collagen growth. Calcium hydroxylapatite, the active ingredient in Radiesse®, is a naturally-occurring substance in the body, and is also used to restore lost volume to many different areas of the face.
If you have any questions about Radiesse®, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mark Pinsky, please contact us today.
Radiesse® is commonly used to treat the following areas of the face:
Radiesse® injections are offered by a variety of practices. However, for optimal results, a board-certified plastic surgeon or certified physician assistant typically provides the highest level of skill and training. Our plastic surgery background, medical knowledge, and experience with a variety of non-surgical skin care treatments help us to evaluate your needs, communicate realistic expectations, and achieve natural-looking, high-quality results.
*Individual Results May Vary
As with any dermal filler, minimal swelling, redness, or tenderness may occur at the treatment site. However, side effects are generally mild and usually resolve quickly. Most patients resume their regular activities immediately and choose to have their Radiesse® treatment performed during their lunch hour.
