RADIESSE®

Radiesse

Radiesse® is a volumizing dermal filler that reduces fine lines and facial wrinkles. Radiesse® when used precisely, can effectively diminish and improve troublesome furrows and lines on the face.

Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is FDA-approved for subdermal implantation for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. After injection, patients may experience redness, bruising, swelling or other local side effects. Most side effects of treatment resolve within a few days. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer, unevenness or firmness in the area injected, and as with any injection, there may be a risk of infection.

RADIESSE® INFORMATION

Radiesse® is an FDA approved long lasting facial filler that contains crystals that stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Typically used for facial folds, creases and soft tissue augmentation. Radiesse® is great for the cheeks, chin and other facial areas where a large volume of dermal filler is required. Radiesse® creates a scaffold of micro-beads under your skin that stimulates your own natural collagen to grow, resulting in a natural, and soft effect.

PREPARING FOR RADIESSE® TREATMENTS

Prior to your procedure you will be asked to avoid certain medications and herbal supplements for two weeks. These substances can increase bleeding which in turn will cause bruising.

Before Radiesse injections, patients are asked to avoid taking the following substances for at least two weeks:

  • Any NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen, Aleve®, Motrin®, Advil®, Aspirin®
  • Coumadin
  • Garlic
  • Ginseng
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Glucosamine
  • Fish Oil
  • Vitamin E

Arrive for your treatment well fed to avoid having to eat or chew for a few hours. This will help the gel to settle exactly where Heather Schwartzmann has placed it. Avoid applying makeup for a few hours to let the skin breathe.

Don’t exercise directly following treatment as this will raise blood pressure and interfere with the product settling properly. Other things that can cause bruising and swelling are using a hot tub, sauna or steam room or any heart rate raising activity.

RADIESSE® PROCEDURE

All treatments begin with a consultation to discuss your desired results, expectations, and aesthetic goals. During the initial consultation, Heather Schwartzmann PA-C in Boca will take a medical history to ensure there will be no adverse reactions to the product.

Radiesse® is injected into the skin in a simple and quick treatment performed by a licensed healthcare provider using a fine-gauge needle. You can either sit or recline during treatment.

Radiesse® is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. Radiesse® is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of Radiesse® continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen.

The entire appointment should take less than an hour, including time for a consultation.

Afterwards we will give you a handout of things to do or avoid after your treatments.

AFTER RECEIVING RADIESSE®

Don’t exercise directly following treatment as this will raise blood pressure and interfere with the product settling properly. Other things that can cause bruising and swelling are using a hot tub, sauna or steam room or any heart rate raising activity.

  • Use cold compresses to reduce swelling.
  • Avoid exposure to intense heat (sun lamp or sunbathing) or cold.
  • Reduce the risk of facial cold sore recurrence that could be caused by needle punctures. Talk with your healthcare professional about medications that may minimize the likelihood of an outbreak.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen), St. John’s wort or high doses of vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
  • Remember to ask about follow-up appointments.

RADISSE® SIDE EFFECTS

After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache and itching at the injection site or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14–18 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.

HOW LONG DOES RADIESSE® LAST?

Dermal injectables such as Radiesse® are temporary fillers. They last for different lengths of time, depending upon where they are injected. In areas where there is less movement of the skin such as tear troughs and cheeks, Radiesse® will last for nine months to one year. In areas where there is more movement, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines), Radiesse® tends to last for about six to nine months. The lips have the most movement, and fillers tend to last four to six months in this area.

The results also vary from person to person depending on metabolism, water intake, and various other personal factors.
