Radiesse® in West Palm Beach, FL
Radiesse® is a proven method of filling in fine lines and wrinkles in certain problem areas. Dr. Supriya Tomar is knowledgeable and experienced with administering these injections.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an injectable filler that has been approved by the FDA to help fill in line and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. It contains a mixture of calcium ions, hydrogen, and carbon which is suspended in a gel-like liquid. This treatment can be given at the office and takes just a short amount of time to perform. It is a safe and effective method in treating skin folds. Radiesse® lasts longer than most dermal fillers, and clinical studies have shown that Radiesse® can last a year or more.
How is Radiesse® administered?
Dr. Tomar will perform an initial consultation, at which time the patient’s goals and product benefits will be discussed. By doing so, Dr. Tomar will be able to develop a personalized treatment plan involving Radiesse®. On the day of the procedure, the patient will be taken to an examining room where the skin will be cleansed before applying a topical anesthetic if needed (many patients do not require it). Once these preparations have been made, the right amount of product will be injected into predetermined areas of the face. A typical procedure takes only about 30 minutes to accomplish.
How does Radiesse® work?
The unique combination of ingredients in this filler works together to plump the skin from underneath. By doing so, the appearance of wrinkles is diminished, and the skin has a smoother look and feel. In addition, these ingredients also stimulate the body’s own collagen production, which means that as time goes on the skin will naturally become firmer than it was before. The fact that Radiesse® helps the body stimulate collagen production means those who undergo this procedure have a more youthful yet natural-looking appearance. Dr. Tomar can use Radiesse® for nonsurgical cheek and chin enhancement, however, we have noticed a large number of patients that prefer to use Radiesse in their hands to reduce signs of aging.
When will benefits be noticed?
After we perform the injection, you will see results immediately.
How long will the results last?
The average patient notices benefits for about 12 to 18 months, as the compounds are slowly absorbed by the body during that time.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
Skin rejuvenation treatments are considered to be elective, so most insurance providers won’t cover the costs. To help make Radiesse® affordable and accessible for everyone, Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology offers financing options via CareCredit®. We also accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards.
