Smoothing out Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Skin Folds

More patients are turning to non-surgical options to achieve their desired aesthetic goals. Radiesse is a leader in injectable fillers that helps to smooth out the face, helping patients look years younger. At his Riverside office, Dr. Hardesty works with patients to achieve their desired look. With Radiesse, the team at Imagine Plastic Surgery helps their patients imagine the rejuvenation their skin could achieve.

What is Radiesse®?

The Radiesse treatment is an injectable dermal filler that helps to smooth out wrinkles and skin folds in the face. Radiesse fills in the wrinkles by plumping the skin and stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein in the skin’s tissue that helps with connectivity and elasticity. At his Riverside office, Dr. Hardesty is helping to multiple concern areas for his patients by using the Radiesse treatment. He is a board-certified plastic surgeon who is specially trained in Radiesse injections. The team at Imagine Plastic Surgery help their patients to feel more confident by restoring their youthful look in the face.

The Radiesse® Treatment

During the consultation with Dr. Hardesty, it is important to go over the areas of concern as well as your aesthetic goals. This will help Dr. Hardesty to give you the best results with a personalized treatment plan. At the consultation, you will need to provide information about your medical history and list of allergens. This is to help ensure that there are no complications with Radiesse and to make sure it will benefit you.

After creating the personalized treatment plan with Dr. Hardesty, you can start treatment. The filler is injected into the areas chosen for treatment to help smooth out the lines and wrinkles. Radiesse is made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are in a gel formula. When it is injected, it works to provide immediate volume and correction. It continues to work by stimulating the body’s production of its own collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed, and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres which leave behind your own natural collagen. This adds volume to the skin, creating a youthful look and contour. This treatment has minimal discomfort associated due to the presence of lidocaine in the formula. The lidocaine is a form of an anesthetic and helps to remove pain or discomfort. Dr. Hardesty and his team at Imagine Plastic Surgery want to make sure that their patients are comfortable and relaxed during the treatment. Radiesse is a versatile substance and can be used to treat:

  • Nasolabial Folds

  • Marionette Lines

  • Pre-Jowl Folds

  • Chin Wrinkles

  • Restoring Lost Volume in the Hands

  • Minimizing the Visibility of Veins in the Hands
