Radiesse is a long-lasting injectable contouring agent that is FDA cleared for cosmetic correction of facial wrinkles. This treatment can provide our New York, NY patients with 1 or more year(s) of restoration for depressions in the skin like nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Dr. Lawrence Bass, our board-certified plastic surgeon, also uses Radiesse to contour and add volume to the chin, cheek, and nasal areas, as well as help reverse the early aging changes in the pre-jowl sulcus (the jawline) before facial plastic surgeries are necessary. The material is made of hydroxylapatite, which is a mineral matrix occurring naturally in the body. If patients are looking for a more youthful face and wish to smooth out their wrinkles and lines, we invite them to schedule a consultation at Bass Plastic Surgery today to learn about Radiesse and all of their options.
The best candidates for Radiesse:
- Have moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds near the mouth and between the mouth and nose
- Have age-related volume loss in the cheeks
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results
"Radiesse and Belotero Shots for Rejuvenation - Manhattan, NY - Found him on RealSelf. Doctor Bass was very jovial throughout the procedure, I was really thankful for the time he took to respond to all of my questions in detail, and even to respond to my mother's worries when she came in. (The price can seem a little high, but that's because I used quite a lot of product, I wanted that facelift that would put me into my early twenties again, but if it's simply to fill in the undereye or plump the lip, that doesn't necessitate much product, the price would be dramatically reduced. Doctor Bass definitely makes it possible to have a cheaper procedure)."- A. / RealSelf / Mar 17, 2013
"I am always so happy to return to Dr. Bass' office. Not only is the staff so welcoming and helpful, but Dr. Bass' work is perfection! I totally recommend you visit him for fillers (that's what I got)!"- C. / RealSelf / Jan 01, 2017
"Dr. Bass is absolutely amazing. I have been a patient of his for about 15 years. My surgeries include a facelift and breast implants. No one can tell I had either done. I look beautiful and natural. He continues to treat my skin with Botox and fillers. I trust him. He is very caring, attentive, and addresses all my concerns."- Anonymous / Vitals / Nov 21, 2016
What to Expect
Before the treatment, Dr. Bass will determine the appropriate dosage and area(s) to be treated for an individual patient. Radiesse will be injected using a fine needle. Since it’s already mixed with lidocaine (a numbing agent), additional numbing usually isn’t needed but can be provided depending on the patient’s preference. A treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete. There’s no downtime associated with Radiesse, and patients can return to their normal activities right away.
After a Radiesse treatment, patients commonly experience numbness, redness, mild bruising, or itching. These side effects should subside within a day or two. Right after an injection, patients will notice a marked difference with smoother, firmer skin, diminished lines, wrinkles, and folds. Results can last 1 year or more depending on the individual.
Radiant Skin with Radiesse
