Collagen gives volume to your facial contours and provides elasticity to your skin. As that collagen breaks down, you may begin to notice wrinkles, creases, and a pinched expression. To restore a fresh, more youthful appearance, consider professional Radiesse treatments.

Radiesse is a dermal filler. It softens wrinkles around the nose and mouth, replenishes facial volume, and can even supplement some types of scarring. The change can be dramatic (up to 80 percent improvement), and the results are long-lasting.

Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyapatite; synthetic bone. It is biocompatible, meaning the body accepts it readily, with little chance of rejection. The compound is a thick, white paste, perfect for filling deeper folds and wrinkles. And it actually stimulates growth of your own natural collagen.

The treatment is quick, with minimal discomfort. After a consultation to determine that Radiesse is right for you, the trained staff at A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery will select injection points for each area to be treated. You will have local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure, which usually takes only about 15 minutes. Then, Dr. Vitulli will inject a precise amount of Radiesse just beneath the skin.

You’ll see an immediate enhancement, and full results within about a week. Your new, smoother contours will last for two years or more, until the Radiesse is gradually and harmlessly absorbed into the body. You may want additional “touch-ups” during this period to maintain your youthful appearance between re-treatments. For optimal results, you should consider beginning Radiesse when you are 35 to 60 years old. Radiesse is safe to use in conjunction with other facial fillers and Botox.

While unusual, complications such as swelling, bruising, or redness can occur. They are usually minor and resolved within a few days. We’ll talk with you about your individual risk of side effects at consultation.
