Radiesse is an dermal filler that’s injected into the skin for restoring lost facial volume to reduce the appearance of folds and wrinkles. Radiesse works by stimulating collagen production within the skin. At Healy Plastic Surgery, we have helped numerous patients restore the natural beauty of their skin by providing them with amazing results from their Radiesse treatment in Hawaii.
How it Works
Radiesse is typically used to treat the areas around the mouth and nose area. Dr. Healy administers a set of injections underneath the skin using a small needle. The ingredients comprising Radiesse are well-suited to the natural tissues of the skin as they are hypoallergenic and nontoxic.
Radiesse contains gel microspheres of CaHa (calcium hydroxyapatite) that give instant results upon injection. CaHa has ions of calcium and phosphate that are naturally present in all human bodies.
Initially, the gel injected into the skin plumps up the skin, giving it desirable volume. With the passage of time, however, the calcium hydroxyapatite does the job of stimulating the production of collagen in the skin. This helps to make the skin tighter and smoother over time. Radiesse treatments can be performed in the office. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the face to make sure the injection process is as comfortable as possible.
Radiesse is a very short cosmetic treatment and doesn’t require a lengthy downtime.
Things to Keep in Mind
Before undergoing the Radiesse treatment, let your doctor know if you’re on any blood thinners or medication that could interfere with blood clotting. These medications could include warfarin or aspirin. The reason why these medicines need to be stopped is that there is a higher risk of the patient experiencing bleeding or bruising at the site of the injection.
Wow! What a completely wonderful experience this has been! I’m amazed at not only your professional and understanding ways, but also how you have treated my family as your family. There has not been one moment of regret. I cannot be happier!
Recovery and Results
Expect to see an instant improvement in your treated skin after Radiesse. It takes about a week for the full results to be visible. Remember, this is not a permanent treatment and requires repeat visits to the doctor. The swelling after Radiesse isn’t severe and usually goes down within 36 hours. It is normal to experience some amount of discomfort and bruising after Radiesse. Most patients are able to resume most of their normal activities right away. Our team can let you know what to expect and provide you with post-treatment instructions following your injections.
The Cost of Radiesse
The cost of your Radiesse treatment in Hawaii will be based on the areas of the face being treated and the amount of Radiesse needed to provide you with your ideal results. During your consultation, Dr. Healy can go over the expected cost of your Radiesse treatment and let you know about the payment options available to you.
