Have a big event coming up? You’ve probably had a few lines that bother you for a while, but now that you have somewhere important to go you think you should have done something already. It’s not too late – most of the wrinkle treatments and fillers that exist can be used within a day or two of the event. No one even has to know.
Radiesse® is a popular injectable filler composed of smooth calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres. Suspended in a water-based gel, these microspheres produce an immediate correction of even deep grooves and lines, but also stimulate your skin to produce new collagen. This gives a more prolonged effect to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds.
When used by an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Kutty, Radiesse® provides subtle, natural-looking results that can rejuvenate your overall facial appearance. To schedule an appointment at Luxe Plastic Surgery near Houston, please call (281) 241-1041 today.
Radiesse® Treatment Areas
While Juvederm® is a great filler for fine lines and lips, Radiesse® is an excellent choice for treating deeper facial wrinkles, such as:
- Smile lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Wrinkles around the nose and mouth
- Marionette lines
Radiesse® safely and naturally promotes the growth of your skin´s own collagen. Treatments only take about 10 minutes to perform and are usually painless, since the gel material itself contains an anesthetic. We recommend obtaining a follow-up visit 6 to 8 weeks after your initial treatment to fine-tune your results and produce a longer-lasting effect.
The results of Radiesse® treatment tend to last longer than other facial fillers. Depending on the facial area that you had treated, your results may last anywhere from 6 to 9 months - and in some cases, a full year.
For more dramatic overall results, Radiesse® can be combined with other fillers and even facial surgery. During a personal consultation, Dr. Kutty will recommend the course of treatment that will provide you with the best outcome, but the final decision about treatment will always be up to you.
