Radiesse Conveniently located to serve New York City
If you are unhappy with your facial wrinkles, an injectable filler called Radiesse may be right for you. Radiesse can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and stimulate the production of your body’s natural collagen. To learn more about Radiesse and other skin care treatments at our New York cosmetic surgery practice, please call Manhattan Surgical Care at 212-308-1566.
A Volumizing Injectable for Wrinkles
Radiesse is an injectable filler that is proven to reduce wrinkles, scars, and creases. It is made from calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. The same calcium compound is found in your body’s own collagen, so the risk of allergic reaction is very low and no allergy testing is needed.
How Radiesse Works
Like Restylane, Radiesse immediately improves your appearance after injection by adding volume to folds in your skin. But over time, Radiesse actually stimulates the body to produce its own natural collagen for results that may last a year or more in many patients. As the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, only natural collagen is left behind.
Treatments typically take 15 minutes and require only local anesthetic. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last for several months, although a repeat injection will be needed to maintain the results once they begin to fade.
Radiesse may be injected at the following locations:
- Smile lines: creases extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Corners of the mouth: wrinkles around the mouth that look like parentheses
- Pre-jowl: the areas on either side of the chin
- Chin wrinkles: horizontal lines that form on the chin
- Marionette lines: the lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth
Side effects such as swelling or bruising are minimal and should fade within a few days.
