Radiesse in Miami, FL
Radiesse® is an injectable filler that targets severe wrinkles, folds, creases by increasing collagen production, adding fullness and volume to your skin, and naturally reducing visible signs of aging. Radiesse® is a popular treatment for patients seeking alternatives to cosmetic surgery. In the Miami, Fort Lauderdale and South Florida area, Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a board-certified plastic surgeon located in Aventura providing Radiesse® treatments.
What Is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is specifically designed to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and creases by increasing volume, fullness, and elasticity in the delicate outer layer of your skin by supporting it from within. Radiesse® provides an underlying structure of microspheres in the deeper layers beneath the surface of the skin. This structure provides support and lift, while also promoting the production of collagen, which builds suppleness, volume, and elasticity in human skin. Increased collagen production fills in the lattice of microspheres to reveal a smoother and more youthful skin texture.
Benefits of Radiesse®
Radiesse® is a unique injectable treatment that offers specific advantages over other dermal fillers, and is clinically proven to provide longer-lasting results, usually up to two years. Radiesse® works by stimulating natural collagen production, so your skin essentially repairs itself by a natural process, resulting in a gradual improvement in your appearance. Some of the unique benefits that Radiesse® provides include:
- Formulated from calcium hydroxylapatite, a natural ingredient found in healthy skin
- Very low risk of allergic reaction
- Short treatment times with lasting up to two years
- No required downtime or recovery period
- Immediate visible results followed by gradual improvements over three months
Who Is a Good Candidate for Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is not for everyone, so it is important that you discuss all your options with Dr. Rubinstein. Radiesse® is an FDA-approved treatment that has been determined safe and effective for most patients. Dr. Rubinstein generally recommends Radiesse® for people between 35 to 60 years old seeking non-surgical corrections for the following conditions:
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Smile and frown lines
- Enhancement and definition of the chin, cheeks, jawline, and nose
Radiesse® also restores facial volume in patients afflicted with facial lipoatrophy, a medical condition that results in loss of facial fat and definition in facial contouring.
How Should I Prepare For Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an FDA-approved treatment that is safe and effective when administered by an experienced, qualified medical practitioner such as Dr. Rubinstein. Radiesse® contains only natural ingredients, so allergic reactions are rare, but please discuss any history of allergies and other medical conditions with Dr. Rubinstein prior to treatment. Radiesse® treatments should be delayed if infections, inflammation or other skin irritations are present. As with any dermal filler treatment, please inform Dr. Rubinstein if you have received any other injections recently and if you are taking any medications.
How Is Radiesse® Administered?
Dr. Rubinstein may administer local anesthesia to the treatment areas to alleviate any possible discomfort. The Radiesse® treatment takes approximately 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated, and is administered via very fine, small gauge needle into the appropriate layer of your skin. You will see some immediate improvement following the treatment, but you will note that over the next two to three weeks, lines and creases disappear gradually as if by magic as your skin begins producing more collagen. In most cases, one initial treatment provides results for up to two years.
