What to expect during the Radiesse® procedure?
Radiesse® is a cosmetic filler that consists of small microspheres made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance naturally found in the body, suspended in a gel-like solution. No animals or animal products are used during its production, and no skin testing is needed. A small needle is used to implant the cosmetic filler into the deep dermis. Topical and/or local anesthetic are used for pain control during injections.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler treatments are a quick in-office procedure at Rex Moulton Barrett in Brentwood, CA. In fact, your comfort can be significantly improved during the procedure because RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Treatments are usually completed in about 30 minutes.
What to expect during the recovery for Radiesse®?
There is little to no downtime is required, making it likely you will be free to return to your regular daily routine right afterwards. And because the results are immediate, you can leave the office looking more youthful and refreshed. For the first three months after Radiesse® anti aging treatment, it acts as a dermal filler, plumping up the skin and diminishing age lines. Then, the cosmetic filler microspheres stimulate natural collagen growth, actually causing new tissue development for extended results (up to two years).
