Radiesse is an FDA-approved dermal filler for patients who have moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is also effective in managing wasting of the hands. It triggers production of natural collagen in the body, correcting wrinkles. With Radiesse, Sudbury patients can experience facial rejuvenation without going under the knife.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is the active ingredient of Radiesse. This ingredient has been tested and proven safe for any skin type.
Why Undergo Radiesse Treatment?
Radiesse treats volume loss in the face and hands. This dermal filler can eliminate facial wrinkles that occur with natural aging, including marionette lines, the nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, and lipstick lines. It can also volumize sunken cheeks.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for Radiesse treatment are patients who seek a non-surgical and minimally invasive remedy to significant volume loss and sagging skin. You should not receive Radiesse injections if you have an allergy to any component of the product.
The best candidates do not have a history of bleeding disorders or severe allergies. The treatment is not advised for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Allergies to specific medications such as lidocaine makes people unsuitable for Radiesse.
What Happens During the Consultation?
Before getting Radiesse injections, it is vital that you discuss with Dr. Quang P. Le if you are taking blood thinners that can impede the clotting of blood, such as aspirin or warfarin. These medications will put you at high risk for bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
Prior to Radiesse treatment, you must also inform Dr. Le if you have any diseases or hand trauma. During your consultation, Dr. Le will impart information about the procedure and common adverse effects. Proper aftercare and the expected outcome will also be discussed.
Dr. Le will ascertain your injection sites and then apply an antiseptic solution to prevent infection. Your Radiesse dosage will be decided by Dr. Le, and then the injections will be administered. Dr. Le will inject Radiesse using local anesthesia, numbing the sites to any pain. Radiesse treatment usually takes 15 minutes, depending on how many injections you need.
No recovery time is needed after a Radiesse injection session, so patients can immediately return to their daily schedules. Best results from Radiesse come within a short span of time. Minor swelling and bruising may appear after Radiesse injections, and it typically takes up to two weeks for any swelling or bruising to subside.
How Much Does Radiesse Cost?
The price of Radiesse can vary depending on the number of injections you need. Dr. Le will determine the number of injections based on how many areas of your face need to be treated and the extent of volume loss in your hands. Financing through CareCredit is available to aid in covering the cost of the treatment.
