Radiesse is a dermal filler that can restore lost volume and boost collagen production for firmer, healthier skin. At Glassman Plastic Surgery in New York City and Pomona, NY, Radiesse is often recommended to smooth out facial wrinkles and creases to achieve a more youthful appearance.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a synthetic injectable filler that has been approved by the FDA to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by stimulating the natural production of collagen in the skin. This product is made of microspheres composed of calcium hydroxylapatite within a water-based gel and is made from minerals similar to what makes up our bones. Radiesse can be injected directly into the skin with no need for pre-testing.
Radiesse is most effective in reducing the appearance of smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Radiesse can also be used to rejuvenate the appearance of aging hands. The results of this procedure are visible immediately after the injection and can last for up to a year or even longer.With continued treatment, patients will require fewer and fewer injections.
Am I a Candidate for Radiesse?
Radiesse is a safe, effective treatment option for healthy men and women of many ages and all skin types. A consultation with a facial rejuvenation expert like Dr. Glassman is the best way to determine if Radiesse is the ideal treatment for your needs.
Advanced signs of aging, such as excess, loose skin and/or sagging tissue may require a more intensive intervention. Dr. Glassman will discuss all of your treatment options with you at your consultation.
How Much Does Radiesse Cost?
The price of your Radiesse treatment will depend on the number of injections and the dosage needed to achieve your desired outcome. After assessing your facial structure and tissues, reviewing your medical history, and learning about your treatment goals, Dr. Glassman can determine the best approach for resolving your cosmetic concerns.
The details of your procedure, as well as the associated cost, will be reviewed with you once Dr. Glassman has developed your treatment plan. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have regarding your recommended treatment protocol.
