RADIESSE™

Radiesse™ is injectable filler composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, which lasts upto 18 months. After injection of Radiesse, your body’s skin cells grow around the calcium hydroxylapatite particles. The Radiesse acts like scaffolding through which the body’s cells grow. Within about a week, the injectable becomes integrated into the skin. As part of the skin, the implant does not move and is very durable.

Dr. Stanley uses this long-lasting dermal filler in many applications including:

  • Non-Surgical Chin Enhancement
  • Non-Surgical Jowl Lift
  • Non-Surgical Facelift
  • Smoothing wrinkles and folds throughout the face
  • Filling acne scars

Radiesse injections cause no significant pain, swelling, or recovery time. A topical numbing cream is applied prior to treatment. Small amounts of Radiesse are injected into precise locations, and in most cases you will be asked to give feedback so that you have control over your final look.

Because it is not animal-based, there is no allergy testing required prior to treatment. Calcium hydroxylapatite is biodegradable, so it is safely absorbed by your body over time.

The result is a soft, pliable filled area, which looks natural. After about one and a half years your body absorbs the filler and the injections can be repeated, meaning that the treated area can be adjusted to compliment the changes that occur in your face over time.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Audrey Stanley will evaluate your unique needs, desired end results, explain the procedure, and help you determine which type of filler will work best with your body and skin type. You will have the opportunity to view before and after photos, so that you will know exactly what to expect from the treatment.
