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.

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.

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.

Why Should I Choose Dr. Sheena Kong's MedSpa for Radiesse?

In San Francisco, Dr. Sheena Kong is recognized as being among the most professional, respected, anti-aging experts. A Harvard graduate with a Master’s in in medical science, she has achieved acclaim in the Bay Area for her excellent results, and the care and attention she provides each patient. All injections are performed by Dr. Kong, not an assistant. She will work closely with you to help you achieve your vision for facial rejuvenation and may recommend Radiesse as an option for you.

How is Radiesse Different?

Radiesse is the only FDA-approved dermal filler to be developed with the tiny, calcium-based microspheres. These microspheres are the magic behind the long-term results of Radiesse injections. They stimulate the natural production of collagen, the perfect skin plumper – created by your own body as it regenerates skin quality.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

You are on our minds during this recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID 19), and we felt it is appropriate to keep you informed of the procedures and actions we are taking to ensure your health and safety.

Our practice is considered a low risk environment, however, we take the well-being of our patients and staff as our highest priority and it is always best to take sensible precautions during a time like this. Please note the following in regard to all patient appointments:

  • If you have any history of travel (or have come in contact with persons who have traveled) to countries where there has been a confirmed epidemic (China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Japan, and the US State of Washington), please call our office to reschedule your appointment.
  • We have implemented a “No Hand Shaking” policy at our practice during the outbreak to help limit casual contact and ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. Please know that we appreciate you and are always happy to see you!
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath, fever above 100.4), we respectfully request that you reschedule your appointment at our practice until you are free from any symptoms for a period of at least 48 hours. We have asked our staff to do the same.

In addition to our already extensive level of cleaning and sterilization, we have supplemented these efforts with additional cleaning and sanitization of hard surfaces.

This is indeed a trying time in public health, but we also want you to know that we have some of the most stringent sanitization and infection control standards in any business, making our practice a safe place to visit. Should you have any questions about this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.
