Radiesse injectable filler delivers a blow to smile lines, marionette lines and other age-related lines on the corners of the mouth and on either side of the chin. This dermal filler is comprised of calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in water-based gel for easy administration. It is used to fill in a range of facial wrinkles, lines and scars and stimulate the body's own natural collagen production.
The most appropriate candidates for Radiesse are healthy individuals who wish to restore facial volume and fill in facial depressions. Radiesse is safe and biocompatible; therefore, it does not require any pre-treatment testing. As a uniquely qualified Sacramento plastic surgeon and Radiesse provider, Dr. Charles Perry can help you determine if this dermal filler is the right solution for your aesthetic concerns.
Radiesse results are immediate with continuous improvement over a 7-day period. The aesthetic benefits of Radiesse last from 12 to 24 months, during which time touch-up treatments may be necessary. To maintain optimal results, it is best to undergo touch-ups before the initial results have fully disappeared.
Similar to Botox in Sacramento, Radiesse is injected under the skin with a micro needle. Prior to treatment, specific areas of the face are marked and a topical numbing solution is applied to the face to prevent discomfort. Radiesse treatment lasts about 15 to 20 minutes and requires no downtime.
Because Radiesse is made up of natural components, the risk of an allergic reaction is eliminated. Most side effects associated with Radiesse are related to the injection site and may include:
Radiesse side effects generally disappear within 24 to 36 hours after initial treatment. Any discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter pain medicine recommended by Dr. Perry.
After treatment, Sacramento Radiesse patients will be provided with a printout of post-treatment aftercare instructions. Exposure to the sunlight should be avoided for a few days. If you have any questions in the days following your Radiesse treatment, please contact Dr. Perry or one of his staff members.
