Dr. Armen Serebrakian of the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center is available to help patients with surgical and nonsurgical solutions for the face and body. Many patients with unwanted signs of aging on the face may incorrectly believe that their only option to achieve a more youthful look is with plastic surgery. Fortunately, there are alternative, noninvasive solutions, including injectables such as Radiesse™.
What Is Radiesse™?
Radiesse™ is a specific type of dermal filler used to treat wrinkles, lines, and scars. It is made from calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in an aqueous gel, which provides immediate volume and correction to the skin. This unique material stimulates your body’s own natural collagen production over time for long-lasting results. Radiesse™ can be injected into most areas of the face, as well as other parts of the body such as hands or decolletage.
Radiesse™ offers several advantages over other cosmetic fillers on the market today. Radiesse™:
- Is an affordable alternative, especially when compared to plastic surgery solutions.
- Provides immediate volume and correction to the skin for results that last 12 months or longer.
- Is completely composed of biocompatible materials, so there is no risk of allergic reaction when it is used in most areas of the face, including the lips and around the eyes.
- Is a popular choice among people looking to get rid of wrinkles without taking any time off from work or other commitments, as it requires no recovery period.
Radiesse™ has been successfully used by both cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists across the country to treat hundreds of thousands of patients since its FDA approval in 2006. The material has a long history as an injectable cosmetic treatment with few complications and very good outcomes. In fact, many plastic surgeons prefer Radiesse™ over other dermal fillers for some patients with deeper, more defined lines and wrinkles.
Am I a Good Candidate for Radiesse™ Injections?
