Radiesse is an excellent filler for lifting the face and adding structure to the jawline and chin. A new FDA indication is also hand rejuvenation. When injected into the back of the hands, Radiesse helps smooth and thicken the skin which becomes wrinkled, thin and transparent with age. Additionally the veins decrease in size.
Radiesse is considered a semi permanent filler for deeper skin wrinkles and creases as it last longer in many patients when compared to most of the HA products. It is not intended for high movement areas such as the lips. It also can be used to contour the jawline or correct facial asymmetry or facial dips. Radiesse injections may last one to three years. When used for contouring, injections last up to one year or longer.
“I love Dr. Shafer! His expert eye and welcoming manner really make me feel like I’m getting his full attention to detail. His staff is really warm and friendly and I actually enjoyed being at his office. My Botox came out great and I love my Radiesse injections to my cheeks. We decided it might be time to put some Belotero under my eyes and I did a laser treatment called Ulthera at the same time. While I was there, I met with his facialist and laser specialist Graceanne Svendsen. She is super experienced and meticulous. Highly recommend Shafer Plastic Surgery.”
