What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a biocompatible, non-toxic and non-allergenic injectable filler used to refresh aging facial skin. While Botox® injections work by paralyzing muscles, Radiesse’s unique formula works to plump your skin and replenish volume, smoothing the signs of aging to give your face a more youthful appearance.
Radiesse is intended for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds including:
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Low cheek bones
- Facial hollows
- Moderate facial scars
This FDA-approved filler also helps stimulate collagen production, resulting in more natural facial rejuvenation and longer-lasting results.
Radiesse treatment only takes a few minutes to perform and yields instantly visible results. Our board-certified Detroit cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rifai, performs this treatment by using small needles to inject the solution into target areas on the face. Discomfort is minor and can be offset with the use of a local anesthetic solution.
Once injected, results can be seen right away. The most commonly reported side-effect from the procedure is slight bruising and swelling around the injection site, but this usually resolves quickly and make-up can be applied over the treated area in the mean time.
One major benefit is that Radiesse treatment requires zero recovery time, allowing you to resume your regular activities immediately.
Depending on your individual circumstances, results from Radiesse can last anywhere from 3 months to 2 years. Clinical studies suggest that many patients typically enjoy results for about 1 year after the initial treatment.
Radiesse is an ideal facial treatment for candidates who want visible aesthetic results without undergoing an in-depth facial cosmetic surgery procedure.
Radiesse is not ideal for candidates who have severe allergies or who may have other medical issues that can affect the safety of the procedure. The best way for our Detroit patients to determine if Radiesse will give you the safest and most effective results is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Rifai.
