Radiesse is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. Radiesse is injected through a small needle and the product is placed under the skin. This filler works immediately to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of Radiesse continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The most common treatment areas for Radiesse are the nasolabial folds, corners of the mouth, temple, cheeks and hands. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more for many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. Even with the best injectors, there can be temporary pain, swelling or bruising. Dr. Cohen uses Radiesse with lidocaine to minimize patient discomfort. Patients return home or back to work within minutes after the procedure. When planning your appointment, you should schedule your treatment for at least two weeks prior to any important event.
