As a result, moderate to severe lines and folds around the nose and mouth are erased and the additional volume provides contouring. Since Radiesse is made from a substance naturally present in the body, calcium hydroxyapatite, it is absorbed and metabolized by the body for longer-lasting results.
Dr. Nuveen is very educated, professional, caring, the best bedside manner and such a calming presence. So pleased with every aspect of my experiences with his office.
Cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin in Oklahoma City inject this filler to provide their patients at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates with results that can last well past a year.
Radiesse is a quick procedure normally completed within 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The face will be thoroughly cleansed and then marked with ink so that the practitioner can conduct the injections with precision.
A numbing cream is usually applied before the injection occurs. The gel is delivered using a fine needle into pockets just underneath the skin until the right volume is achieved.
Absolutely amazing experience. Nothing short of amazing. Great welcoming staff that help you feel at ease. 10/10 recommended!!
After treatment, there may be redness, swelling and even bruising around the injection sites, but these go away after several hours. Patients will be able to resume their normal routine; although strenuous exercise should be limited for the first 24 hours.
Patients will see their results immediately, and the results will continue to improve because Radiesse stimulates natural collagen growth, which is an agent for healthy skin.
There is an extensive selection of derma fillers available. Each filler has its own specific treatment to match the patient’s cosmetic issues. Whether naturally or artificially derived, these are all fda approved, which means they are proven to be safe and effective. The one highlight of a radiesse treatment is that aside from its volumizing capability it can function as a collagen stimulator. When collagen multiplies, it greatly benefits the skin tone. During the initial consultation, the face will be assessed and the appropriate filler will be recommended.
Several other derma fillers are manufactured using hyaluronic acid. Popular examples are juvederm or restylane. While these are great in adding volume back to facial depressions, radiesse stands out as the only filler made of calcium-based microspheres, which have the ability to integrate with skin tissues and promote collagen growth. Every patient is unique and a treatment plan will be tailored to them that may include radiesse, or another filler if the practitioner feels it will best benefit the patient.
Radiesse is fda approved and backed by comprehensive testing. As it is derived from a substance that naturally occurs in the body, it poses no toxic risk. Temporary side effects may include redness, swelling, bruising, numbness or itching, which all subsides after a few days.
