Radiesse® provides both immediate and long-lasting results to enhance facial volume and to rejuvenate the appearance. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we offer Radiesse® to patients living in New Orleans, Slidell, Covington, and on the Northshore.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an injectable treatment that is used to enhance facial volume and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. The Radiesse® formula is composed of calcium and other minerals that are naturally found in the body. Radiesse® provides a natural boost in facial volume upon injection. Over time, the body safely absorbs the Radiesse® formula. Radiesse® can be used to treat the following:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Corners of the mouth
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
If you elect to receive Radiesse® at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach for your Radiesse® treatment. Once these variables are taking into consideration, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is the Radiesse® Treatment Like?
Before your Radiesse® treatment, apply a topical anesthetic 30-45 minutes prior to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. A topical anesthetic is available for purchase at our office. Injections are then made in and around the desired treatment area. The number of injections required will depend on the area being treated as well as your desired results. A Radiesse® treatment takes less than 30 minutes to perform, making it a great option for patients with a busy schedule
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Radiesse®?
After your Radiesse® treatment, you may experience swelling, bruising or sensitivity in the treatment area. These are common side effects of treatment, and will typically fade within a few days. Despite these minor side effects, you will be able to return to work and all other normal activities immediately following your appointment. There is no downtime or recovery period involved with Radiesse®.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Radiesse®?
You will notice results from Radiesse® immediately as the injections provide an instant increase in facial volume. Patients can expect the results from their Radiesse® treatment to last up to a year or longer.
