RADIESSE ® CAPE CORAL & FORT MYERS

Are you looking to correct and augment facial defects without undergoing surgery? We recommend inquiring about our treatment with RADIESSE ®

Radiesse_logoRADIESSE is FDA-approved in the US for use in correction and augmentation of facial defects and is offered at our office in Cape Coral. It is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite CaHA (30%) microspheres suspended in an aqueous carboxyl methylase (70%) gel carrier. CaHA is found in nature as the mineral component of human bone. RADIESSE is composed of a synthetic CaHA, which shares the same biocompatibility profile of the natural compound. It requires no skin testing and shows no evidence of migration or ossification. The gel carrier is naturally broken down by the body over 4-12 weeks, leaving only microspheres. The microspheres are uniformly shaped and are prevented from packing tightly together, thereby forming a scaffold that promotes soft tissue formation within the tissue where the CaHA is placed. Over time, fibroblasts will lay down a collagenous extracellular matrix over the microspheres. CaHA microspheres are not permanent; the particles slowly are broken down into calcium and phosphate ions via the body’s normal metabolic process. Longevity of the product ranges 12-18 months, longer in areas of decreased facial expression. Longevity of correction is dependent on multiple factors including area of placement, age of patient, rate of metabolism, etc.product of its kind in the world with sales of over 10 million vials in the US alone. BOTOX ® is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes caused by repeated muscle contractions over many years.Radiesse

Post treatment care involves the application of ice over injection areas to decrease tissue edema. Post treatment follow up visits are typically scheduled 8-12 weeks after treatment to assess patient satisfaction and to provide touch up injections as needed. For optimal and long lasting results, a 2nd touch-up procedure is sometimes warranted, as evidence suggests that the gel carrier of CaHA resorbs at a slightly faster pace than the pace at which tissue in-growth occurs. Performing a touch-up injection at approximately 8-12 weeks after the initial injection optimizes longevity.
