Radiesse® is a cosmetic dermal filler used to treat deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. One of the most multi-faceted dermal fillers available, Radiesse also treats lines around the eyes and jaw and can be used as a liquid implant to augment the nose, cheeks, and chin or restore plumpness and vitality to withered, lined hands.
This injectable medication consists of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance found naturally in bones and teeth, which produce immediate results for about 3 months, adding volume to your face and smoothing out the lines and wrinkles of your skin. Over time, your body metabolizes the microspheres, stimulating the production of your natural collagen to encourage long-lasting results. You can expect the results of your Radiesse treatment to last about 18 months.
Prior to beginning your treatment, we will conduct a thorough examination of your skin to determine if Radiesse is appropriate to your specific skin condition. As calcium hydroxylapatite is found naturally in the body, no allergy tests will be necessary. We will also discuss your aesthetic goals prior to providing you with Radiesse. Your treatment will consist of a series of injections over a period of a few months.
We invite you to contact Gotham Beauty and schedule a consultation with our doctor if you are considering receiving Radiesse in New York, New York.
