DR BAHARI'S EXCLUSIVES
Radiesse® is Calcium Hydroxylapatite facial filler. It is a great alternative to many of its Hyaluronic Acid predecessors. Calcium hydroxylapatite is naturally found in the body, so no allergy testing is needed.
Radiesse® is being used to improve the appearance of laugh lines and wrinkles around the mouth. It is also great for nose sculpting, cheek contouring, chin molding, and jaw line contouring. One little known "side effect" of Radiesse® is that it stimulates the production of new collagen which further increases its rejuvenating effect.
For persons seeking to improve their appearance without surgery Radiesse® can offer the following results:
For many, the lower cost of Radiesse® alone is the deciding factor over cosmetic surgery.
Topical numbing cream or Lidocaine is used to anesthetize the treatment areas.
Radiesse® is then injected into precise spots in the treatment regions. FDA has now approved Radiesse® mixing with lidocaine to enhance patient's comfort. After injection, there is no significant redness, swelling, or down time. Results are immediate.
After Radiesse® is placed under your skin, the cells start to grow around the calcium hydroxylapatite particles. The Radiesse® then acts like scaffolding, allowing the skin cells to grow around it. The results look natural and are long lasting. Your body absorbs the Radiesse® in about one year. The treatment is then repeated, allowing for adjustments for the changes that occur in your face over time.
Because the substance used (Calcium Hydroxylapatite) is naturally-occurring it presents no risk of allergy. Other side effects of the injection such as minor bruising, redness and swelling may occur but are temporary. To ensure the safety of the treatment Dr. Bahari will advise you to stop taking any medications, including over-the-counter, nutritional supplements and herbs that increase bleeding and bruising for 3 weeks prior to the planned treatment.
