Radiesse®

RADIESSE® is an FDA approved dermal filler for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It can be to improve the following areas:

Smile lines: also called the nasolabial folds – the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth-
Marionette lines: lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth to the jaw.
Corners of the mouth:  if these are turned downward it can make you look as though you’re frowning
Pre-jowl fold: the area on either side of the chin, where skin can sag due to loss of facial volume
Chin wrinkles: horizontal lines that can form on your chin and distract from your smile

RADIESSE® is the only dermal filler available composed of calcium-based microspheres, and has been shown to stimulate the natural production of collagen, for results that may last up to a year or more in many patients. The calcium microspheres are similar to minerals found naturally in the body so allergy testing is not required. Once injected, RADIESSE® plumps the skin to give the appearance of a smoother surface. Over time, it works to stimulate the body to produce collagen naturally.

RADISSE® is physician administered in our office as a “walk in, walk out” treatment. A tiny needle is used to inject the filler into the area being treated. Results are immediate. Some patients may experience bruising or swelling for a few days following treatment, however daily activities can be resumed  immediately.

If you are considering an injectable filler to reduce wrinkles and lines or to restore volume, please contact our office to schedule a consultation. Dr. Hurvitz will examine your face and provide his recommendation as to which filler will be best suited for you.
