Radiesse logoAs we age, our skin loses elasticity and volume, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Fortunately, there are many cosmetic treatments available to help restore your more youthful appearance: Radiesse in Louisville, a dermal filler that can smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth).

What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse injections are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the skin. This dermal filler is primarily composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel, making it suitable for treating wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume in various areas of the face and hands. 

Radiesse provides a gradual and natural-looking improvement, as the results develop over time due to collagen production. This can be different from some hyaluronic acid fillers, which show immediate results. 

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for Radiesse injections are individuals seeking non-surgical facial rejuvenation. They typically desire to address mild to moderate facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. Radiesse is an excellent choice for those looking to restore volume and contour to areas like the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Suitable candidates should be in good overall health, without allergies to any Radiesse components. 

Radiesse is safe but should not be administered in areas with active skin infections, such as cold sores, acne, or other skin conditions, to avoid exacerbating the infection. It is also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as well as patients who have recently had another dermal filler treatment in the same area. If so, they may need to wait for some time before receiving Radiesse to prevent overcorrection and complications.

What to Expect During a Consultation

During a consultation, Dr. Joseph Banis will evaluate your medical history, examine your skin, and discuss your goals for the treatment. He will also explain the procedure, including the risks and benefits, and answer any questions you may have. If you are a good candidate for Radiesse, the provider will develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.

Day of the Procedure

The Radiesse injection procedure typically takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Dr. Banis will first clean the treatment area and may apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. They will then use a fine needle to inject the Radiesse gel into the skin. After the injection, the application areas may be massaged to ensure even distribution of the product.

Road to Recovery

Most individuals can enjoy the immediate benefits of Radiesse, such as enhanced facial volume and smoother skin, while experiencing minimal downtime. Most patients can also resume their normal activities immediately after the Radiesse injection procedure. However, some swelling, redness, and bruising may occur at the injection site, which typically resolves within a few days. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and sun exposure for 24 hours after the procedure.

Cost Considerations

The cost of Radiesse injections varies depending on the number of injections needed, and the location of the treatment area. During a consultation, a detailed cost estimate will be provided based on your specific needs.

Patient Testimonials

"I can honestly say that I am impressed"

“I have had Ultherapy treatment and I can honestly say that I am impressed. Each treatment brings an immediate tightening effect and then over the next few months you see your skin continue to improve. It is excellent at stimulating the deeper skin layers. The collagen in my face gets a major boost – and so does my confidence level! This is a treatment that actually produces real and noticeable results. I now have a maintenance treatment on a yearly basis. The treatment is completely tolerable with no downtime. In my opinion, there are not too many treatments available that can give you impressive results and no time out for healing, you’re good to go. You should approach the treatment with realistic expectations and afterwards be pleasantly surprised. It is not a miracle worker, but it just might be the next closest thing. My experience has been completely positive and I love to get a big bang for my buck. Ultherapy is an amazing treatment and a very good investment. Aging is inevitable, but who says you can’t do it gracefully and at a slower rate. I will also say that it is incredibly important to have it performed by a trusted provider who is well trained with this procedure. Abby has both the credentials as well as the experience with this treatment and I trust her without reservation. If you are considering Ultherapy, make an appointment with Abby today.”
