Radiesse is a calcium-based injectable filler. Calcium hydroxylapatite is biodegradable and is safely absorbed by the body over time. This filler can be used in many of the same areas of the face as HA fillers to correct age-related volume loss, enhance specific areas, and reduce facial wrinkles. Its unique characteristics also make it a go-to product for rejuvenation of the back of the hands, where volume loss is very apparent as part of the aging process on many people.
Radiesse works by helping to replenish the protein collagen, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body and is slowly depleted over time. Collagen is responsible for the skin’s youthful glow and vitality, thus working with Radiesse is a way to return aesthetically to the suppleness and resilience of earlier years.
Dr. Rapaport will provide you with his recommendation of which type of filler would be best for your particular anatomy and circumstances. Dr. Rapaport, a board certified plastic surgeon with offices in New York City, is very experienced using Radiesse for hand and facial rejuvenation.
No allergy testing is needed. Before having any Radiesse injections, patients should avoid using aspirin products, Vitamin E supplements and other medications that can thin the blood and may increase bruising.
Before the procedure, areas of the face or hands are marked with a surgical pen to specify just the right placement of the needle. A topical anesthetic is then applied to ensure your total comfort and peace of mind. Next, the doctor will use an ultra-thin needle to inject Radiesse into the target areas. The process is minimally uncomfortable, and you can enjoy videos or music while Dr. Rapaport employs a highly detailed and precise injection strategy to produce in stunning outcomes.
Receiving injectables may appear like "no big deal", prompting countless day spas to offer them as part of a skin regimen, but there is actually an art and a science to performing non-surgical procedures. With one of the best consummate surgeons – Dr. Rapaport – on hand to design your personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique anatomy, results are nuanced, specific and elegantly natural.
Dr. Rapaport possess years of training in cosmetic facial techniques that aim to both enhance the appearance in the short term, but also to preserve the longevity of your results, saving you time and money. Safety is also of the utmost importance at our practice. With treatments by a board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Rapaport, you are ensuring that each injection is done with painstaking attention to detail in the safest manner possible.
