WHAT IS RADIESSE?
These days, there are several injectable treatments on the market for you to consider for facial rejuvenation. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle formula offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino is wonderful for the purpose of addressing mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, as well as for correcting age-related volume loss in the hands. Women and men who might not have time for repeated touch-ups love the lasting results of Radiesse. Using microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a water-based gel, Radiesse fills and smoothes the look of your face without invasive surgery. Radiesse is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely and effectively contour your facial features. It can be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) for a personalized procedure plan that restores your skin. Look younger and boost your self-image with Radiesse dermal fillers at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery in Doylestown, PA.
WHO CAN GET RADIESSE?
Adults who are in good overall health and want to correct their mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best candidates for Radiesse treatments. It can address smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and lines that form in the edges of the lips. Radiesse is also designed to treat age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look fuller and more youthful. You shouldn't have this treatment if you are allergic to lidocaine or any other ingredients contained in Radiesse. Be sure to tell Dr. Tamburrino if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, might be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within several years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.
HOW DOES RADIESSE WORK?
Radiesse injections are performed in one of the treatment rooms at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery in about 30 – 60 minutes after your one-on-one consultation. First, you will sit comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout their procedure at the initial prick, but if requested, a numbing agent will be applied to the injection sites. The Radiesse dose, determined at your personalized treatment planning session, will be placed in a fine syringe. The pre-marked injection sites will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the procedure is complete, a compress can be applied to alleviate bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
After your Radiesse injection, you may have mild swelling, bruising, and redness. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects may typically be covered with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer or seems excessive, please contact Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery. Most patients have some results minutes after the treatment with better results developing in a month or so. Your face will appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Radiesse typically lasts longer than some of the other fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. You can ask Dr. Tamburrino during your appointment about the best time to attend a follow-up session to touch up your results.
