Radiesse in MiamiAlthough patients have many choices when selecting a dermal filler for their unwanted lines and wrinkles, Radiesse is unique because it is comprised of a calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) rather than hyaluronic acid. This gives the filler a thicker consistency, making it a good choice for adding volume to the lower portion of the face. Dr. Christopher Craft recommends Radiesse because it provides instantaneous results that last longer than other dermal fillers.

Benefits of Radiesse

Patients primarily use Radiesse to target lines and wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Volumizing the chin and lower portion of the face helps to restore definition to the jawline for a younger, less jowly appearance. Patients also rely on Radiesse for plumping sunken cheeks and adding fullness back to thinning skin on the hands.

Radiesse provides instant volume, but the positive effects improve with time because the injection also promotes collagen production. As the body produces more collagen, this further tightens the skin, helping to achieve a smoother texture and younger appearance.

Radiesse Treatment Details

Radiesse is a quick and convenient treatment, usually completed in a matter of minutes. Prior to performing the injection, Dr. Craft uses a topical anesthetic to numb the skin and minimize discomfort. This professional then uses a syringe to inject the Radiesse at precise points that best achieve the patient’s desired changes.

Radiesse Recovery

Dermal Fillers in MiamiRadiesse is a non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime. In most cases, swelling and bruising from the injection is minimal and temporary. Patients can resume their normal activities as soon as they leave Craft Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, although our aestheticians recommend waiting one full day before doing strenuous exercise since that can exacerbate swelling at the injection point.

The volumizing effects of Radiesse can be seen immediately following the treatment. However, the results look even better a few months later because the increase in collagen production helps to smooth and tighten skin further.

Most patients see the benefits of Radiesse last for a full year before the effects of the hydroxylapatite wear off. To maintain their results, many patients choose to undergo annual injections of Radiesse.

Patients should be aware that while other dermal fillers can be safely dissolved if they decide they no longer want their results, this is not possible with Radiesse. For that reason, patients should view Radiesse as a one-year commitment.

Radiesse Costs

The total price of Radiesse depends on the number of treatment areas and amount of gel necessary to achieve each patient’s desired results. It is not covered by insurance because it is an elective, cosmetic procedure. However, financing options are available for patients who would like to pay for the treatment in installments.
