What is Radiesse®?
There are several injectable fillers on the market for you to choose from when trying to turn back the hands of time. The RADIESSE® injectable wrinkle treatment offered by Dr. Richard Ruff, medical director Dr. Brad Herpolsheimer, and our team is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles on the face and for fixing volume loss in the hands. Many Coshocton, Pataskala, and Heath, OH patients who do not have a lot of time for repeat visits prefer the long-lasting results (over a year in many cases) of RADIESSE®. With calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, RADIESSE® effectively and safely contours your facial features, filling in and softening the appearance of your face without invasive surgery. It can be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a unique procedure plan to rejuvenate your appearance. Look younger and improve your confidence with RADIESSE® injectable wrinkle fillers at Skin Retouch MediSpa in Heath, OH.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM RADIESSE® TREATMENTS?
RADIESSE® dermal injections are performed in one of the treatment rooms at Skin Retouch MediSpa in about 30 – 60 minutes, sometimes directly after your consultation. To start the procedure, we will have you will lie in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Most patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout their procedure at the initial prick, but if preferred, a numbing agent may be used to provide more comfort. The RADIESSE® dose, selected during your personalized treatment planning session, will be placed in a fine syringe. The pre-marked site of injection will help the injector to carefully administer RADIESSE® into the needed areas. After your procedure is done, a cold compress can be held to the treated areas to alleviate bruising and swelling. After your RADIESSE® treatment, you may see mild swelling, redness, and bruising — this is normal and could last for about a week. These side effects can usually be covered with cosmetics. If the side effects last longer than ten days or seem excessive, please contact Dr. Ruff or one of our experienced team members. Most patients have some results right away with better results appearing in a month or so. Your face should appear younger, softer, and lifted. RADIESSE® tends to last longer compared to some of the other fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. During your appointment, we can discuss when to get your next injection to maintain your results.
As a dermal filler, RADIESSE® receives positive reviews from our patients for providing great outcomes when trying to reduce lines and wrinkles, particularly on the face and hands.
