Do you recognize yourself in the mirror? Are you dealing with the formation of fine lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you really are? Are you unhappy with your appearance, but don’t want to go straight for plastic surgery? Dr. Sanjay Lalla of West Orange, NJ is a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands how the signs of aging can creep up, and also knows that patients often want to avoid plastic surgery or delay it as much as possible. With this in mind, he offers nonsurgical solutions to aging skin, including Radiesse injections.
What is Radiesse?
Dr. Sanjay Lalla describes Radiesse as a specific brand of cosmetic injectable facial fillers used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face without surgery. Most cosmetic injectables available on the market today, such as Juvéderm, are formulated with hyaluronic acid in a gel carrier. However, Radiesse is different. it is made of calcium hydroxlapatite. It is a smooth formula that not only added volume where it is needed to fill wrinkles and folds, but it also stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen. This means not only immediate results, but continued, long-lasting changes in the skin’s appearance. In doing so, patients can have injections done less often as they would with a traditional dermal filler.
What can Radiesse treat?
There are a variety of areas around the face in which Radiesse would be beneficial for adult patients. Below are some of the targeted areas that Radiesse can improve:
- Laugh lines (around the mouth)
- Lips and lip lines
- Pre-jowl folds
- Chin wrinkles
In some instances, patients may also use Radiesse to add volume to the back of the hands, where volume loss also occurs with the natural process of aging.
