Integrated Aesthetics

Radiesse

Radiesse stimulates the skin to rebuild collagen, the main structural component of the skin. Radiesse can be used to sculpt cheeks and jawlines, or it can be used for a more soft effect that helps to restore the natural fullness of the skin.

Radiesse is a robust and versatile filler. It is unique in that it replaces volume and stimulates collagen. In this way, the patient gets the best of both worlds: immediate results and rebuilding of native collagen for longer-lasting impact.  

Our approach is to customize the treatment for the needs of each patient.  Radiesse is so versatile. We like radiesse for lifting heavier faces that need more foundational support, especially along the cheekbones and the jawline. In this case, we use Radiesse to sculpt, and we inject it in small aliquots, precisely where we want to buttress, so that the product results in lift and projection. We also reach for Radiesse for thinner, hollow faces or crepey, saggy skin. In this case, we use a different technique, coating broad areas with a thin, even layer of radiesse.

As with other non-surgical aesthetic procedures, this is mix-and-match.  Depending on the patient's needs, we may conbine Radiesse with Sculptra Aesthetic and dermal fillers, as well as wrinkle reducers and energy-based treatments.

Alternative procedures for lifting, volumizing and adding structural support include HA fillers and sculptra.  For helping with crepey skin, sculptra is an alternative biostimulator.  

PROS

CONS

  • In-office
  • Minimal downtime
  • Immediate results along with collagen stimulation.
  • Temporary swelling; swelling lasts for a few days after the procedure.
  • Cannot be dissolved.

This is a medical procedure and there are risks.  The most important ones to consider are 1) potential for infection 2) hypersensitivity reaction that can result in redness, swelling, and/or nodule formation and 3) compromise of vascular system, which can rarely result in blood not being able to flow to the skin or, much more rarely, the eye.  

On the phone, prior to your consultation, we will spend some time learning more about your health history, your previous aesthetic experiences, and your goals.
 
During your consultation, your Patient Experience Coordinator and Dr. Cho or Dr. Chiang will discuss your concerns in more depth. The doctor will assess your face and neck and suggest treatment options that would be most impactful for you.
 
Many times, a multi-modal approach (see complementary procedures) will be presented as we like to share how we can achieve the best results. After discussing your options, your Patient Experience Coordinator will review quotes and coordinate with you the next steps.
