Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler Dr. Soler uses to restore fullness and definition to aging skin. This unique filler is a collagen activator and works with your body to help you regain a more youthful and naturally beautiful appearance. Dr. Soler serves patients in Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg, is involved in every procedure and personally performs the Radiesse® injections.
Where does Radiesse® work?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler used to add volume to the nose, mouth, cheeks and jawline. Radiesse® is also commonly used in the hands to restore fullness and definition to aging, sagging skin. Radiesse® is effective on all skin types and skin colors and the results are usually seen after one treatment.
How does Radiesse® work?
Radiesse® is a volumizing dermal filler made of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite, which is similar to the calcium found in your bones. This filler is injected through a thin needle and immediately fills up targeted areas for instant results. Radiesse® is a unique filler because of how it breaks down and the lasting benefits you receive. As the gel is absorbed by your body, it leaves behind micro-spheres of this calcium, which supports your skin’s structure that has weakened due to the aging process. This new structure actually promotes the growth of new collagen, so the more you repeat this treatment, the better the results. The Radiesse® treatments are fast and relatively painless and the results of this filler can last up to 15 months.
- Results are immediate and long-lasting
- Stimulates new natural collagen production
- Fewer injections are needed than other leading fillers
- Natural looking results
- Quick and virtually painless
How long is the recovery time of Radiesse®?
Radiesse® injections require no downtime. After your Radiesse® treatment you can return to your normal daily activities. It is important to note that both recovery and results vary from person to person. Radiesse® may cause some swelling, but it is usually gone within a week or two and even quicker for some patients. The swelling depends on how the filler is injected, and how much is used. It is always recommended to have injectable fillers done by a board-certified plastic surgeon, to ensure the best results possible and lessen any potential side effects. Dr. Soler chooses to perform all dermal filler and injectable procedures personally, to optimize the treatment and recovery for his patients.
What is the cost of Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance, so you are responsible for the payments. We understand not everyone can afford to have facial plastic surgery or may prefer an alternative treatment to an invasive or surgical procedure. If you still want to achieve a youthful appearance we have many non-surgical anti-aging options. Dr. Pedro Soler offers a variety of non-invasive skin care procedures in order to rejuvenate your appearance. These options range in price according to your specific needs and desired outcome. It is important to discuss your goals with Dr. Soler and he will help guide you through the best options for you. Dr Soler will address your specific suitability and answer any and all questions during your consultation at his Tampa office.
