While many dermal fillers can restore facial volume, only Radiesse® can restore volume while simultaneously addressing the cause of volume loss - a lack of collagen. Envision Plastic Surgery offers this collagen-stimulating treatment to the men and women living in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas of Utah.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that can be used to restore volume in the hands and lower face. Radiesse® is unique in that it actually stimulates collagen production in addition to providing volume to the skin. The Radiesse® formula is made up of calcium microspheres, which kickstart the production of collagen as they are absorbed by the body. This way, after the Radiesse® formula is broken down by the body, your natural collagen will be left behind, prolonging the results of your treatment.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
The cost of Radiesse® at Envision Cosmetic Surgery will vary depending on your treatment goals and the amount of Radiesse® needed to fulfill those goals. We encourage all interested patients to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dunkley, so that you can discuss your needs and determine the treatment plan that is right for you. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to make our services more affordable and accessible, we are proud to offer a variety of financing options to our patients.
What Happens During the Radiesse® Treatment?
The Radiesse® procedure is quick and tolerable. First, the treatment area will be numbed to prepare it for injections. Then, the Radiesse® formula will be injected into and around the desired treatment area. You may feel a pinch or a prick during this process, but most patients handle this process without an issue. Once the injections are performed, your treatment is complete! The full Radiesse® treatment takes less than 30 minutes to administer, making it a perfect treatment option for anyone with a busy lifestyle.
What is Recovery Like After Radiesse®?
After the Radiesse® treatment, there is no downtime necessary. This is why Radiesse® and other injectables are so popular among patients. You will be able to return to work and all other activities immediately following your appointment. While you may experience some minor redness, sensitivity or swelling in the treatment area, these symptoms are typically mild in nature and resolve within a few days.
What Results Can I Expect from Radiesse®?
Radiesse® produces results instantly upon injection. You will notice increased skin volume before even leaving your appointment. The Radiesse® formula will then be slowly broken down over the following months, stimulating collagen production in the process. The collagen will gradually take place of the Radiesse® formula, producing results that last in total up to 18 months or longer.
