Radiesse® (Wrinkle Filler) - Fort Worth, TX
If you would like to have young-looking, wrinkle-free skin, Anderson Plastic Surgery can help. In addition to its wrinkle-filling properties, Radiesse also stimulates the growth of collagen, the skin’s major structural protein. With this dual action of filling and growth, Radiesse can substantially minimize the appearance of nasolabial folds, lines around the mouth and other signs of facial aging. This product can be administered in as little as 15 minutes and results are long-lasting– typically up to two years. Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume. Radiesse is unique injection that stimulates the production of your own natural collagen. This calcium-based filler provides immediate volume correction and offers long-lasting results for 9 months or more.
What to Expect
Patients should notice a difference to their face almost immediately following a Radiesse® injection. However, because the injection ingredient works to produce and stimulate collagen development, results will be longer lasting than some of the other fillers on the market. Patients should expect results that include added volume to the face which will smooth out wrinkle, and typically last up to one year. Patients can repeat this procedure when they feel their results are no longer visible.
Patients who are considering an injectable filler as part of their cosmetic treatment have a diverse selection of fillers to choose from. Fillers such as Radiesse are considered temporary, even though the results may last up to a full year. Common filler procedures include collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and the heaviest of the fillers, PMMA. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers and evaluate your facial tone, laxity, and volume levels to help you decide which filler may be the best choice.
Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers due to the natural ability to stimulate collagen production. The results slightly vary from the two types of fillers, and generally patients are more pleased with results from Radiesse.
Patients undergoing Radiesse may have mild redness, bruising, numbness and/or itching that occur following treatment. These are temporary side effects that usually disappear within a day or two.
