Microspheres are the secret to the amazing anti-aging benefits of Radiesse®. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers Radiesse® for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an injectable used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds — the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.
Benefits of Radiesse®
Radiesse® treatments take less than one hour and require no downtime.
How Does Radiesse® Work?
Once injected, Radiesse® immediately adds fullness to your face giving you a visible result at the first treatment session. Radiesse® contains microspheres made of a natural material called calcium hydroxylapatite in a water-based gel carrier.
Radiesse® will not correct the underlying causes. Talk to plastic surgeon, Lars. P. Enevoldsen, M.D. about your medical history when deciding on treatment options. You should not use Radiesse® if you are allergic to any ingredient of Radiesse®. You should not choose Radiesse® if you desire only short-term results.
What to Expect from Radiesse®
You should tell Dr. Enevoldsen about all the medicines you are taking, even over-the-counter medicines or treatments. If you are taking blood thinners or medications that may interfere with clotting of the blood, such as aspirin, you might be more likely to have bruising or bleeding at the injection site. There have been no studies of possible interactions between Radiesse® and drugs or other substances or implants.
Immediately following a treatment session with Radiesse®, redness, bruising or swelling may occur in the treatment area. These signs usually go away in a short period and are generally mild in nature. An ice pack may be applied to the treatment area to help reduce swelling. Your doctor will give you specific post-treatment care instructions.
After Your Radiesse® Treatment
For the first 24 hours:
- Avoid significant movement or massaging of the treated area
- Do not apply makeup
- Avoid extensive sun or heat exposure
After you leave the office, you may experience redness, bruising or swelling for a few days. Not all patients experience these, but please note that such effects can occur and are not out of the ordinary for such a treatment. You may be able to feel the area where Radiesse® was injected for some period after injection. Over time, the injected area will feel more and more like your own tissue.
A touch-up may be required to achieve optimal results. However, significant changes may be achieved with the first treatment.
