What You Should Know About Radiesse Treatments in NYC

Published on March 25, 2015

Are you plagued with the side effects of aging like wrinkles, fine lines and smile lines? Radiesse treatments in NYC can eliminate those signs of aging without a facelift. Radiesse is a treatment first approved by the FDA to repair paralyzed vocal chords. Containing calcium hydroxylapatite, a natural substance present in bones, it works as a tissue filler to erase the signs of aging and give you the confidence to face the world.

Why our NYC cosmetic dermatologist use Radiesse, rather than other cosmetic treatments

Used to correct volume loss, the dermal filler Radiesse lasts longer than other treatments like Restylane and Juvaderm. Our NYC dermatologist injects Radiesse to both fill wrinkles and offset the visible effects of aging for up to five years. After your Radiesse treatments in NYC, a topical anesthetic is applied to ease any discomfort. Your appointment with our NYC dermatologist usually takes from forty five minutes to an hour to complete. After your Radiesse treatment, you can resume your normal activities immediately.

While Radiesse treatments might cause mild and temporary discomfort, the long term effects offset these minor side effects. If bruising occurs, you can cover it with makeup easily. The beneficial effects may last up to five years, but depending on your activity level and lifestyle, this of course varies as no two faces are alike.
