Radiesse in Los Angeles, CA
Dr. Jaime Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon at Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute, uses Radiesse® on his patients in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, CA who have moderate to severe wrinkles and lines and who want to restore volume to their faces to look younger and healthier.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an injectable filler developed to diminish and erase more severe wrinkles, lines and folds on the face by increasing collagen production. It is especially beneficial to people with marionette lines and the nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth areas. When injected, Radiesse® goes into the deeper layers of skin to lift it and add volume, fullness, and more elasticity in the outer layers. The result is smoother, younger looking skin.
Benefits of Radiesse®
Radiesse® is designed to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and lines by increasing collagen production. It is often chosen because it offers the following benefits:
- Long-lasting result – up to two years
- Quick in-office procedure
- No downtime or recovery
- Very little risk of allergic reaction
- Immediate results with more improvements over three months following treatment
Is Radiesse® Right for Me?
Most individuals who have lost volume in their facial appearance respond well to Radiesse®. It uses naturally occurring substances found in the skin to boost collagen production, leaving very little chance for a negative reaction to the filler; however, it is important to meet with Dr. Schwartz to determine if Radiesse® or another dermal filler is the best option for you.
How Radiesse® is Administered?
Radiesse® is injected into the layers of the skin in the targeted areas with a very fine gauge needle. The process takes anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of the area to be treated and if it is administered to multiple areas. Additionally, those who receive Radiesse® require only one treatment. While most patients receive Radiesse® injections with no issues, a numbing cream may be applied if necessary.
As with most dermal fillers and injectables, there is no recovery or downtime, allowing people to return to their normal activities after their appointments. Immediately following the treatment, there is some noticeable improvement, however, over the next three months the full effects of Radiesse® gradually become more visible.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
The cost of Radiesse® varies with each patient and is based on several factors, including how many areas are to be treated, the extent of those areas and whether this treatment is combined with another procedure. We offer financing and accept cash, checks, and major credit cards.
