There are many injectable treatments on the market for you to consider when trying to turn back the hands of time. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle filler offered by plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and for correcting age-related volume loss in the hands. Men and women who might not have time for repeat visits love the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a
water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the look of your skin without an invasive surgery. Radiesse has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely contour your facial features. It can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a custom procedure plan that restores your skin. Look several years younger and boost your confidence with Radiesse injectable wrinkle fillers at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX.
Men and women who are in good health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are great candidates for Radiesse injectable treatments. It can treat smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines in the corners of the mouth. Radiesse is also safe for addressing age-related volume loss in the hands to make them softer and younger looking.
You should not have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell Dr. Schwartz about any allergies (severe or not) and any medical conditions or disorders. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.
Radiesse injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in about 30 – 60 minutes after the consultation. First, you will be seated comfortably while the areas of injection are cleaned and marked. Most patients feel only mild discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick of the needle, but if needed, a numbing agent can be applied to the injection sites.
The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will guide the injector in carefully administering Radiesse into the skin. After the injections are complete, a cold compress can be applied to help alleviate swelling and bruising.
After your treatment, you may see some bruising, redness, and swelling. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be concealed with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery. Most patients see some results immediately with better results developing over time.
Your face should appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers (around 1 – 2 years). You should talk to Dr. Robert Schwartz during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
