What is Radiesse used for?

Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler that replaces lost volume in sagging skin, minimizes wrinkles, and restores a fuller, more youthful appearance. The loosening of the plump, taut skin associated with youth can be a genuine loss, and may cause you to feel unhappy with your appearance. You may benefit from Radiesse if you experience:

Moderate to deep facial wrinkling

Radiesse is a longer-lasting intervention that goes farther than most other injectable treatments. A common target site is the nasolabial folds, the creases that extend from the sides of your nose to the corners of your lips. As we get older, decreased collagen in the skin causes it to lose some of its elasticity, making these creases and folds more pronounced. Radiesse is an effective product to minimize this effect.

Lost tissue volume on the backs of the hands

Because the skin on the backs of our hands is so thin, it is often among the first areas in our bodies to start showing the signs of age. Even minimal fat loss in the hands can cause a dramatic change in appearance: veins become prominent, hands appear bony, and the skin can tear and discolor more easily. Fortunately, Radiesse has been approved for use in hands, taking years of the appearance of your hands by restoring lost tissue volume.

How Radiesse Works

Radiesse is a unique dermal filler option, as it is the only FDA-approved filler than relies on Calcium Hydroxylapatite, a substance that naturally occurs in our bones. Tiny spheres of this mineral are suspended in a water-based gel that is then injected under the surface of the skin, where the calcium hydroxylapatite stimulates the natural production of collagen.

Over time, the gel and calcium particles are reabsorbed into the body, leaving behind the newly-produced collagen to restore structure and tissue volume. As Radiesse stimulates new tissue production, rather relying on the gel itself to provide and maintain tissue volume alone, it is longer lasting than other dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid, and can be used to treat deeper wrinkles and areas of more severe tissue loss.

Updated - June 26th 2020

The COVID-19 epidemic has created unprecedented circumstances for our community. Our practice has been paying close attention to the guidelines put in place by the government and

With this in mind, we are offering virtual consultations to patients via face time, however, face-to-face in-office consultation are still available. We are still seeing post-operative patients and patients requiring ongoing treatments. To schedule, a virtual consultation or in-office consultation call our office.

Please know that we are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and doing our part to make sure that you are protected

  • We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. Our preventative measures include:
  • Fully training all staff members to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • Appointments will be staggered to avoid congestion in the waiting room.
  • Checking temperatures of every patient that comes into the office.
  • Asking all staff, vendors and ancillary personnel to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Asking every patient to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms and inquiring about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing, as this continues to be the most important mode of prevention.
  • Although it is something that we have always constantly done, we are now doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • Constantly sanitizing all surfaces (which we have always done as an accredited facility).

However, we have now increased this routine and are wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities multiple times each day.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this country even better than it currently is. We are closely monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will update our practice’s guidelines as needed to protect our patients.
