RadiesseAt The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology, Dr. Mary Pentel sees many patients who are concerned about the signs of aging. Skin laxity occurs due to the loss of collagen, which results in the gradual development of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Instead of undergoing plastic surgery when the concerns are mild to moderate, our practice encourages patients to consider less invasive options such as Radiesse®.
Radiesse® is a smooth gel that contains tiny spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (a normal constituent of bone). This versatile filler poses no risk of allergic response, and produces beautiful results that are quite long lasting. Many people treated with Radiesse® enjoy beautiful skin for up to two years. The longevity of results depends on several factors, including muscle activity, lifestyle, and age. Some of the areas commonly treated with Radiesse® include depressed scars, temples, chin, cheeks, and nasolabial folds. This filler can also be used to achieve gorgeous, non-surgical nose reshaping. This versatile solution is often considered by patients who are ready to change their appearance dramatically without expensive, invasive, and risky procedures such as a surgical face lift.
Patients who are interested in achieving a more youthful appearance with injectables are encouraged to call our practice to find out if they are an appropriate candidate for procedures such as Radiesse®. Radiesse® is FDA approved for cosmetic use and it continues to be one of the most popular injectables because of the long-lasting results it can achieve for patients who are struggling with the signs of aging. It can be a wonderful preventative measure for patients worried about the more severe fine lines and wrinkles that may lead them to consider plastic surgery options.
