Radiesse is a highly sought-after dermal filler that is frequently provided to patients who wish to achieve longer-lasting aesthetic results. Radiesse is most effective at restoring volume and reducing nasolabial folds, frown lines and crow’s feet. The results of Radiesse have been known to last more than a year. Our oculoplastic surgeon is an experienced eyelid and facial cosmetic expert who has used Radiesse to help hundreds patients look and feel years younger.
Delray Eye Associates, P.A. is proud to have Dr. Jan Kronish providing Radiesse for our patients.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse is a biocompatible, non-toxic and non-allergenic dermal filler. It consists of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a gel containing an organic compound of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen along with glycerin and sterile water. The unique ingredients in Radiesse are known to greatly enhance facial volume and stimulate the production of new collagen. Collagen is the main protein found in the skin. It starts to dwindle around the age of 25 as part of the natural aging process and eventually causing loss of volume and skin laxity. By helping the skin produce more collagen, Radiesse can temporarily stall this process. Radiesse usually conceals up to 80 percent of facial wrinkles and lines. Most of our Radiesse patients achieve their final aesthetic results within one week following treatment.
Injections of Radiesse
Radiesse is injected under the dermis and subcutaneous layers of the skin. Patients may choose to treat one or multiple facial areas, depending on their aesthetic desires. Prior to the procedure, our patients may be provided with a topical or local anesthetic, which is administered at the injection sites to reduce any discomfort. Radiesse treatment usually lasts about 20 minutes, after which patients may proceed with their daily activities. Some patients may experience mild bruising, swelling and discomfort over the next 24 to 36 hours. However, this can be treated with over-the-counter medications. Radiesse treatment does not require any downtime.
