WHAT IS RADIESSE?
RADIESSE is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that restores a natural, youthful look and lasts longer than other filler procedures. This filler is convenient and correct smile lines, Nasolabial Folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple , safe and minimally invasive procedure.
HOW DOES RADIESSE WORK?
RADIESSE works with your body, below the skin’s surface. Tiny calcium-based microspheres form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, the calcium-based microspheres gradually break down and are safely absorbed by your body. RADIESSE does more than just temporarily fill-in facial folds and wrinkles – it rebuilds your skin’s foundation and restores your youthful look, without the risks associated with a permanent implant.
HOW SOON CAN I EXPECT RESULTS? HOW LONG WITH THE RESULTS LAST?
The results are IMMEDIATE! RADIESSE typically lasts a year or more saving the patient time and money. The results may vary so discuss the expectations with Dr. Kovak.
IS RADIESSE SAFE?
Yes! Hundreds of thousands of patients have experienced RADIESSE. Through years of clinical studies and independent research, RADIESSE has proven to be safe and effective. With RADIESSe, you get FDA-approved, safe, clinically tested reliability.
HOW IS A RADIESSE TREATMENT PERFORMED?
RADIESSE is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and convenient procedure. Dr. Kovak is renowned for his optimal injection technique. He may use a local anesthetic depending on each case. RADIESSE treatments have little or no downtime, with most patients returning to normal activities soon after treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Many patients will achieve their desired result after just one visit. Because RADIESSE is a longer-term cosmetic enhancement we may schedule a follow-up visit where a touch -up treatment may be recommended. Although the treatments are long-lasting, they are not permanent. The calcium-based microspheres gradually bread down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body so you will have none of the risks associated with a permanent implant.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Normal, injection-related reactions, such as mild irritation, slight swelling, itching, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These conditions typically resolve quickly and on their own.
