Every dermal filler is slightly different. Dr. Sheena Kong performs a wide range of facial rejuvenation treatments and may recommend our San Francisco Radiesse injections to help you restore facial skin quality. You may want to take advantage of the unique properties of this groundbreaking injectable.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse has the unique capacity to smooth lines and wrinkles, with the added benefit of triggering natural collagen production for a beautiful, fresh result. Radiesse was developed to last for longer than many fillers, up to a year or even longer. It was formulated with tiny microspheres of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA), suspended in a gel formula. The gel provides instant volume to smooth lines and wrinkles, after which the Ca HA goes to work.
What is Hyper-Diluted Radiesse?
When diluted with saline and lidocaine and injected at superficial depths, Radiesse can help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two key proteins that control the skin’s hydration, resilience, and supple glow. Hyperdiluted Radiesse can help to firm, tighten and restore sagging contours, as well as mitigate the onset of crepe-like skin that occurs with the aging process.
How Does Radiesse Work?
This specially-formulated filler works for longer, as over time, the gel in the product is naturally absorbed by the body. The CaHA then does it work, triggering natural collagen production. Nothing is more natural in appearance than skin that is firm and soft, plumped with collagen providing hydration and structure.
Am I a Candidate for Radiesse?
If you are tired of seeing lines and wrinkles and are looking for a solution, you may be a candidate for Radiesse in San Francisco. Most people are good candidates, with a few exceptions, such as pregnant women or those with severe allergies, or who are allergic to any of the ingredients in the product, including lidocaine.
Am I a Candidate for Hyper-Diluted Radiesse?
If you have moderate skin laxity and are interested in a safe, viable path towards smoother skin, diluted Radiesse might be a great addition to your other cosmetic treatments. Hyperdiluted Radiesse is ideal for tackling the negative effects of aging on your skin, including sagging, loose folds, tech necklines, crepe-like skin, and more. This treatment helps stimulate your body’s natural supply of collagen, giving you a more youthful, refreshed look from the inside out.
Do Radiesse Injections Hurt?
Treatment with this advanced dermal filler can be performed in just minutes. It can be mixed with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience. If you are ready to do something effective about aging skin, we invite you to find out more about Radiesse – these injections could provide you with results that last longer than many other dermal fillers. With lidocaine, you can expect a pain-free experience. Without it, you will feel a slight pinch and then pressure as the product enters your skin layers.
Does Radiesse Have any Risks or Side Effects?
Radiesse injections are not dangerous or pose health risks for most people. The microspheres in the product are calcium-based, similar to minerals found within the body, and no allergy testing is needed for treatment due to high biocompatibility. As with any treatment, a review of your health history is always important. For almost all patients, Radiesse injections pose no risk.
The side effects are as you would find with any dermal filler. There is a slight chance of swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site. It is of utmost importance than any dermal filler is injected by an expert, as it is the hands behind the needle that makes all the difference. Dr. Sheena Kong’s patients often remark about her outstanding injection skills. If you should have swelling or redness, it quickly fades, leaving the smoothing effect of the Radiesse.
