The visible signs of aging can now be treated without going under the knife. Here at our Manhattan plastic surgery practice, we use several dermal fillers to help patients achieve facial rejuvenation. Dr. Wallach assesses the patient and determines the best facial filler based on the severity of the facial imperfection and the area that requires treatment. Radiesse is one of the facial fillers offered to patients. It has advantages over other fillers on the market and might be the perfect filler for you.
Allergic reactions are somewhat common with collagen fillers. Also, the majority of brands require skin testing before treatment. With these fillers, you can expect its effects to last for three to six months only.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Using fillers that are made of hyaluronic acid may result in over correction. Then again, this would depend on who performs the injections. It is always best to approach a professional who is specially trained and has extensive experience in administering injections. As for the effects, it may last up to twelve months.
Poly-L-Lactic Acid Fillers
These fillers typically require three to six treatments which are a couple of weeks apart. Furthermore, the effects can only be appreciated a few months after the first treatment.
The Radiesse Difference
Radiesse is derived from smooth calcium hyrdoxylapatite microspheres. There is no risk of allergic reaction with this dermal filler, which means that sensitivity testing is totally unnecessary. The results are also immediate and one treatment can already provide optimal results although some patients may require touch-ups. Radiesse can also be used to augment large areas on the face like the chin or cheeks. Radiesse stimulates collagen production in the body over time and its results last between twelve to eighteen months, the longest among all dermal fillers on the market. Its long-lasting effects lessen the need for follow-up treatments, making it more cost-effective. Its results also look natural and feel like your own tissue.
