Many men and women approach us to correct the signs of aging on their faces and bodies. We typically recommend dermal fillers as a first line of defense.
A breakthrough in the world of cosmetic injections for the face and body, Radiesse is a dermal filler designed to smooth superficial, moderate, and severe lines, wrinkles, and folds. If you would like to learn more about Radiesse in Troy, connect with our experienced cosmetic team today.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler made of collagen and calcium hydroxyapatite, a compound comprised of iron and calcium ions that occur naturally in the body. This dermal treatment essentially “fills” areas of the skin that need volume, reducing the appearance of skin folds, fine lines, and wrinkles. It also stimulates collagen production, making your skin appear firmer and more youthful.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell could use Radiesse to target nasolabial folds and marionette lines. She may use this for chin, cheek, or jawline augmentation. She could also use this filler for correcting volume loss in the hands.
Eventually, your body naturally breaks down and absorbs the calcium hydroxyapatite from the dermal filler, leaving the newly built collagen in place. Results can last from one to two years, and regular maintenance sessions can help you maintain your youthful glow.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Radiesse?
Radiesse treatments at our Troy office are safe for patients of all skin tones and skin shades. Typically, patients who are interested in this injectable treatment are men and women between the ages of 30 to 65. During your initial consultation, our team will review your medical history and discuss your goals to determine if you are an ideal candidate for a Radiesse injectable treatment. We may make lifestyle recommendations for you to ensure a safe procedure, such as temporarily stopping smoking, drinking, and using certain medications. We can also recommend additional treatment options and create a personalized plan to achieve your desired look.
What To Expect From Your Radiesse Procedure
A Radiesse treatment at our Troy office generally takes less than an hour, depending on the size of your treatment area. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell will inject the filler into designated treatment areas. Although this procedure does not require anesthesia, we offer Pro-Nox to ease your comfort.
A Radiesse dermal injection requires no downtime or recovery period whatsoever—you can immediately return to work or your day-to-day activities. However, we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise or going out in the sun for at least 24 hours after your treatment. Some patients may experience mild discomfort, which can be alleviated with over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol.
While the results from your Radiesse procedure can last up to two years, regular maintenance treatments could help extend this period. Our team could develop a treatment plan that suits your lifestyle and addresses your goals.
