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).

"I’ve been seeing Najda for several years. She saved my skin when I first found her and has kept it looking great year round! She customizes your facials and has great prices. Skip the med spa and go see her!"- L.S. / Google / May 26, 2023
"Dr. Song and his team are incredible. I have always been pretty anxious when it comes to surgery, however on the day of my surgery I felt so extremely calm and comfortable…which was surprising to me! I just knew I was going to be taken care of - and each member of his team reminded me of this. Dr. Song, the nurses, the anesthesiologist, everyone in front office, etc. are so extremely kind and caring. After my surgery Dr. Song reached out to check on how I was doing and after that he was easy to reach via text if I had any concerns. He does a great job of being intentional with his patients and making them feel seen. I had absolutely no worries about reaching him, should I have needed to for any reason after the surgery. I even look forward to each follow up appointment and I live an hour away from the office! - Prima Center is genuinely such a great place to go to if you are considering any of their services. I cannot reccomend Dr. Song and his team enough."- A.P. / Google / May 25, 2023
"I have been going to Prima Center to see the aesthetician, Najda for over a year now. She gives the best facials! She customizes your treatment based on your skin needs, which I like. You’re not getting a cookie cutter facial like some of the other places want to give to all their clients. She has definitely helped to keep my skin looking fresh and vibrant. I recently was at a corporate meeting and met a new colleague. The whole day, she kept commenting on how beautiful my skin looked. I must say, she is not the first to comment on my skin. Love Love going to Najda and would highly recommend."- S.G. / Google / May 11, 2023

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.
