Radiesse® is a unique injectable treatment that produces both immediate and long-term results. At Atlantic Surgical Associates, we offer this effective cosmetic solution to the residents of New York and New Jersey, including those living in Edison, West Long Branch, East Brunswick, and the neighboring areas.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a unique dermal filler product that both instantly increases facial volume and stimulates collagen production for long-lasting results. The Radiesse® treatment can be used to add volume to the skin, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. After it is injected, the body will gradually absorb the Radiesse® formula. As this happens, the body replaces the formula with collagen, improving your results and increasing their longevity. Radiesse® can be used for the following concerns:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Corners of the mouth
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
The cost of your Radiesse® treatment will vary depending on your desired results and the extent of treatment required to produce those results. During your consultation, you and Dr. Volshteyn will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the best approach to your Radiesse® treatment. Once your treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment. To learn more about what you can expect and how you can pay for your treatment, please refer to our page on plastic surgery financing.
What is the Radiesse® Treatment Like?
Before your Radiesse® treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the skin in order to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. Once the skin is adequately numbed, injections will be performed in and around the desired treatment area. The number of injections required will depend on your individual cosmetic goals. The injection process takes only a few minutes, meaning that the entire Radiesse® treatment takes less than 30 minutes. This makes it a convenient solution for patients with a busy schedule or for those who are trying to squeeze in a cosmetic treatment during their lunch break.
Is There Any Downtime After the Radiesse® Treatment?
Radiesse®, like other dermal filler and injectable treatments, requires absolutely no downtime or recovery period. In fact, you will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. Patients can expect minor swelling, bruising or redness in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within a day or two.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Radiesse®?
You will notice initial results from Radiesse® instantly, as the Radiesse® formula provides an immediate increase in facial volume. These results will improve further as any side effects from treatment fade. Over time, as the body absorbs the Radiesse® formula, natural collagen will be produced, creating natural-looking results that will last up to a year or longer.
