About Radiesse

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. 

best Candidates

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

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.

Anticipated Results

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

Radiant skin can be achieved after just a single treatment with Radiesse. Skin will look younger, fresher, and rejuvenated. Plus, the face will have its volume restored. Learn more by contacting our New York, NY office to schedule a consultation.
