|RADIESSE® - Recommended|
Imagine young-looking, wrinkle-free skin, the surgeons that are members of ASOPRS have found that the use of the filler Radiesse® may be the best treatment available to date. Previously, the only way to fill these wrinkles was with a lifetime of bovine (cow) collagen injections, which can cause allergic reactions; or solid implants that can look and feel unnatural.
Radiesse® does not require allergy testing. Radiesse® is an innovative product that has been used for many years in prosthetic implants in dental, facial and orthopedic surgery. The product consists of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a normal constituent of the bone and, therefore, shouldnot caus inflammatory or immune reactions. This filler is now being used for filling nasolabial folds and lines in the face to reduce signs of aging.
Radiesse® treatments are performed in our office and take about 30 minutes. Radiesse® is pre-loaded in syringes for use in treating and correcting your facial lines and other soft tissue defects. First we apply a little topical anesthetic. Then Radiesse® is injected into the wrinkle through a tiny needle placed just under your skin. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse® is not absorbed by the body. Therefore, we do not need to over-fill the wrinkle. Your results are immediate.
Depending on the area treated, most corrections may last for several months or longer. Some touch-up treatments may be necessary. The most positive factor in using Radiesse® is that patients don't have to come back every three months and they still look great! If you want to get rid of your wrinkles with a safe, natural solution, Radiesse® may be for you.
During your consultation with one of the members of ASOPRS they will explain the benefits of Radiesse® and any other fillers being considered and recommend the most effective for achieving your desired goal
