Radiesse in Charlotte, NC
Collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are key components to youthful skin. Unfortunately, we lose these substances as we get older. Radiesse® uses a unique microsphere technology to stimulate collagen production, filling in moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Klein, and board-eligible plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Kochuba, specialize in Radiesse® treatments for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is Radiesse®?
Looking younger without surgery can be achieved through two distinct mechanisms:
- Replenishing collagen levels to give the skin a supportive structure
- Restoring hyaluronic acid to draw water into the skin and add volume
Radiesse® stimulates collagen production by using a unique microsphere technology. The miniscule spheres are composed of calcium hydroxylapatite. Initially, these spheres and the gel “lift” the skin. Over time, the presence of the spheres triggers the body to produce collagen to fill in the spaces between the spheres. As the spheres are absorbed by your body, all that is left behind is the newly-formed collagen.
Benefits of Radiesse®
Radiesse® is effective in treating common signs of aging without surgery or downtime, such as:
- Marionette lines
- Wrinkles on the chin
- Smile lines
- Lines at the corners of the mouth
Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba also use Radiesse® to soften wrinkles on the hands.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is most effective for men and women who have moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the mouth and lower third of the face. You should not use Radiesse® if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What Do I Need to Do Before Radiesse®?
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba to discuss your options and make sure that Radiesse® is the best dermal filler for your anti-aging needs.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Radiesse®?
A Radiesse® treatment takes about one hour.
What to Expect After Radiesse®
The treatment area may feel slightly tender. You should not massage the area as this can cause the Radiesse® gel to diffuse into surrounding areas and affect your results. Over-the-counter pain medications can help with any discomfort.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Radiesse®?
You will not have scars because of your Radiesse® treatments at HKB Renaissance Plastic Surgery.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see an initial softening of the lines and wrinkles. Full results depend on the production of collagen which can take a few weeks or months.
How Long Will the Results of Radiesse® Last?
The results of Radiesse® treatments at HKB Renaissance Plastic Surgery last up to 12 months.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost in Charlotte?
Insurance does not cover the cost of Radiesse® because the treatment is elective. After your consultation, we provide a total cost of the procedure. Payment can be made by cash, check, major credit card or CareCredit® financing.
