The cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery in Duluth, GA use injectable fillers, such as Radiesse, for patients who desire a nonsurgical way to decrease the visible appearance of wrinkles and facial lines. Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used for folds and wrinkles. It contains microspheres of a natural material called calcium hydroxyapatite (“hi-droxy-apa-tite”) in a water-based gel. This filler is used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth) and marionette lines (the creases that extend from the corner of the mouth down toward the chin).

What to Expect
During the consultation, the cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery will evaluate the overall health of the skin and assess the amount of wrinkles in the middle and lower third of the face. This evaluation will help our cosmetic surgeons develop an individual plan for the appropriate amount of Radiesse to use during treatment. Our goal is to soften the folds, not obliterate them. Many other offices, med-spas or clinics may have a non-physician provider administer these types of injections. At Prima Center for Plastic Surgery, our cosmetic surgeons perform all injectable treatments themselves. This is to ensure safety and the best possible outcome for each patient. Radiesse typically lasts about 9-12 months. Many patients love their results so much that they return and are put on a rotation schedule.
Discomfort with Radiesse treatments is usually minimal. Occasionally, the tiny needle may nick a small blood vessel during the injection and a small bruise may develop. This can last from 5-10 days and can require makeup to cover. There is minimal downtime. The results from this treatment are evident immediately.
The average cost for a syringe of Radiesse will vary. The total cost differs depending on how many syringes are needed during treatment to attain the desired results.
