Radiesse® with the MediSpa at Hermosa Plastic Surgery

Radiesse® is an injectable filler that helps to fill in deep lines, wrinkles, and furrows in the face. This injectable is administered in a doctor’s office and is a noninvasive procedure that rarely causes any permanent side-effects. It is important for patients to fully understand how the procedure is carried out. One will need to schedule a consultation appointment with our doctor to determine whether or not they are a good candidate. The results of this procedure can last up to a year and then the injections will need to be administered again. With this procedure, people can look much younger than they ever imagined so they can regain their confidence.

Who Should Not Have This Procedure?

Those who have severe allergies, bleeding disorders, or who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have these injections. A good candidate is one that is in good overall health and has lines and wrinkles that need to be filled. This product is not recommended for the lip area because the injections can cause abnormal cyst formations. It is important one provides full disclosure to their doctor on any healthy concerns they have had now or in the past and what medications they take. Since the material in these injections is found in bone, it is important one informs their doctor before having any X-rays or imaging studies taken.

Benefits of This Procedure

These injections can allow a person to be rid of their unwanted lines and wrinkles with one treatment. When the material is injected it greatly expands, filling in deep lines, wrinkles, and furrows. Since the results last up to a year, this can allow a person to regain their confidence and have lasting results.

Possible Side-Effects of This Procedure
