There are several types of cosmetic injectables used by Dr. Patel at Miami Skin and Vein in Coral Gables, Florida. He works with each of his patients to determine which combination of fillers is best for them. For some patients, Dr. Patel may recommend a biostimulatory filler such as Radiesse or Sculptra.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is one of several collagen stimulators that are available on the market. Radiesse is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite. When injected, it stimulates collagen and elastin production, which ensures long-term results.
Where on the Face Can Radiesse Be Used?
Radiesse works best in these areas:
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
What Happens to Radiesse after It Is Injected?
Radiesse stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which adds volume over the course of time to the area in which it is injected. It is made with tiny spheres that dissipate into the body over time.
To maintain the results, patients will need periodic retreatment. During your initial consultation, Dr. Patel will develop a cosmetic treatment plan that address your specific cosmetic concerns.
