When it comes to achieving a youthful appearance, options abound—from creams and serums to more drastic measures like surgical facelifts. But there's an innovative treatment that offers a unique balance of immediate results and long-term benefits, without requiring a surgical procedure. At Kagan Institute, Dr. Kagan is proud to offer Radiesse as part of our comprehensive suite of aesthetic treatments. But what exactly is Radiesse, and how does it work? Let's delve into the science, benefits, and patient experience behind this groundbreaking dermal filler.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that's fundamentally different from hyaluronic acid-based fillers. It's primarily composed of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. CaHA is a substance similar to minerals found naturally in human bones and teeth, making it biocompatible and highly effective
Upon injection, Radiesse immediately provides volume and lift to diminish the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and skin folds. But the true magic lies in its long-term effects. The CaHA microspheres stimulate your skin to produce its collagen, the protein responsible for youthful skin elasticity. Over time, your body metabolizes the CaHA particles, leaving behind your natural collagen to sustain the improved skin quality.
Immediate and Long-Lasting Effects: The dual-action of Radiesse gives you immediate improvements that also last in the long run, often up to a year or more.
Biocompatibility: Because the primary ingredient is similar to minerals already present in your body, allergic reactions are extremely rare.
Versatility: Radiesse can address a range of cosmetic issues, including facial wrinkles, sagging skin, and even hand rejuvenation.
Non-Surgical: With Radiesse, you're looking at minimal downtime and quick treatment sessions, typically taking just 15-30 minutes.
Consultation: Your journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Kagan to discuss your aesthetic goals and develop a tailored treatment plan.
The Procedure: Dr. Kagan or a certified professional will perform the injections, usually completed within 30 minutes. The treatment involves minor discomfort, akin to a pinch.
Aftercare: You can resume most daily activities immediately, but it's advised to avoid strenuous physical activity for 24 hours post-treatment.
Results: You'll see results almost immediately, with continued improvements as your skin generates new collagen
Anyone experiencing moderate to severe facial wrinkles or who wants to improve the appearance of aging hands is a suitable candidate for Radiesse.
The procedure generally lasts between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated.
Common side effects are minor and may include swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site. These usually subside within a few days.
While individual experiences may vary, the effects of Radiesse can last up to a year or more.
