Our facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Waldman has seen excellent results with Radiesse® and offers this injectable filler to patients who would like to restore loss volume to their face. Radiesse® is just one of the many injectable dermal fillers offered at Waldman Schantz Plastic Surgery & Skincare as part of our comprehensive selection of anti-aging facial treatments.
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that replenishes lost collagen. The active ingredient in Radiesse® stimulates the production of new collagen. When the Radiesse® gel is injected, it fortifies the structure of your skin and increases its volume. This results in natural-looking wrinkle correction, which reduces the signs of aging.
Radiesse® treatments typically take about 30 minutes and are performed by Dr. Waldman. Your Radiesse® injection procedure begins with the numbing of your facial skin.
It is normal to experience bruising, swelling or tenderness immediately following your Radiesse® treatment. These side effects should subside within two days and patients can resume most activities immediately.
Radiesse® typically provides results that can last for up to two years after the gel has been absorbed by the body. Such long lasting results are possible because the new collagen that was produced by the Radiesse® fills in the lost facial volume.
