These days, there are several injectable treatments available for you to choose from for facial rejuvenation. The Radiesse dermal filler offered by Las Vegas, NV cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman is wonderful for mild and moderate wrinkles and lines on the face, and for reversing volume loss in the hands. Patients who don't have time for frequent touch-ups prefer the lasting results (over a year, in many cases) of Radiesse. With microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a flexible gel, Radiesse fills and smoothes the appearance of your face with a minimally invasive treatment. Radiesse is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to effectively and safely volumize your face. It may be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) for a personalized procedure to rejuvenate your appearance. Look younger and improve your self-image with Radiesse dermal fillers at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas in Nevada.
Adults who are in good overall health and concerned about mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best patients for Radiesse treatments. It can address marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the sides of the lips. Radiesse is also approved to correct volume that is often lost with age in the hands to help them look smoother and more youthful. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in Radiesse. Be sure to talk to Dr. Z if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any medical conditions or disorders. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't get Radiesse injections.
"I recently visited for fillers on my cheekbone and jawline (Radiesse Plus), as well as some wrinkle relaxer (Xeomin). The process took a little longer than I had expected but the injector was well versed in her practice and very gentle with me. I am very happy with the results. There was a little bruising which is normal with deeper fillers, but from day 1 it was a great improvement. Never thought that just a couple syringes (ok ok like 4 Radiesse, 1 Xeomin) could make such a difference in how I see myself and how others do as well. Highly recommend."- M.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2019
Radiesse dermal injections are performed in a treatment room at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To begin the treatment, you will sit in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but if requested, a numbing cream can be used on the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, chosen during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will help guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the face. Once the treatment is finished, a compress may be held to the treated areas to minimize bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
Following your Radiesse treatment, you may have slight bruising, redness, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be covered with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas. Many patients have visible results right away with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and more radiant. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Z at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Radiesse cost?
The cost of Radiesse is dependent on the number of syringes needed to achieve your desired outcome. During your consultation at our practice, we will discuss your expected results and determine the amount needed to achieve them. We will also discuss your out-of-pocket costs for your treatment.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Fillers, such as Radiesse, are considered temporary, even though the results may last up to a full year. Common filler procedures include collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and the heaviest of the fillers, PMMA. Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers due to the natural ability to stimulate collagen production. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers and evaluate your facial tone, laxity, and volume levels to help you decide which filler may be the best choice for you.
What are the possible side effects of Radiesse?
Severe and/or abnormal side effects are rare with Radiesse. Immediately following treatment, patients may experience mild redness, bruising, numbness, and/or itching. These are temporary side effects that usually disappear within a day or two.
What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Radiesse injections can be performed in combination with other injectable treatments to help you achieve your ideal results. Many patients combine dermal fillers, such as Radiesse, with BOTOX or other muscle relaxants to create an overall younger-looking appearance. Talk to your injector during your consultation to learn more about other procedures that can be combined with Radiesse.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Typically, patients do not need any form of numbing prior to their injection treatment. However, local anesthetic can be provided if you are worried about any discomfort. Most patients only experience slight discomfort during the actual injections.
