Radiesse® provides an instant reduction in wrinkles with the added long-term benefits of collagen stimulation. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates offers Radiesse® and other injectable treatments to residents of Fairfax, Washington DC, Arlington and Annandale, VA and the nearby cities.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler treatment that adds a natural volume to the skin, smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles. Radiesse® is different from other dermal fillers in that it also stimulates collagen production in the skin for long-term benefits. The Radiesse® formula is a water-based gel filled with calcium-based particles. After injection, the body slowly breaks down the formula, reacting with the ingredients to produce natural collagen. As the formula is absorbed, the body replaces it with collagen to provide continued improvements in the appearance of the skin. As a result, patients can achieve long-lasting improvements in smile lines, marionette lines, the mouth, the jowls, and the chin.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
The cost of your Radiesse® treatment at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates will depend on a number of factors, such as the amount needed to produce your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will review your treatment goals in order to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your personal needs. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your procedure. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
What is the Radiesse® Treatment Like?
The Radiesse® treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. This helps to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. Next, the Radiesse® formula will be injected into and around the desired treatment area. The injection process takes less than 30 minutes to perform, making the Radiesse® treatment great for those with a busy lifestyle.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect After My Radiesse® Treatment?
After your Radiesse® treatment, you will notice an instant improvement in facial volume that diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the treatment area. Over time, the body will break down the Radiesse® formula, leaving behind natural collagen. This creates incredibly natural-looking results that last up to a year or longer.
Is There Downtime After Radiesse®?
Radiesse®, like many other injectable treatments, is a popular cosmetic solution because it requires absolutely no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following their appointment. However, patients may experience mild bruising, swelling, or soreness in the treatment area that lasts for a few days.
