Looking for a non-surgical way to reduce the signs of aging? Radiesse® is a long-lasting dermal filler used to diminish the appearance of deep wrinkles, lines, and nasolabial folds (laugh lines). Dr. Leif Nordberg uses Radiesse® at his Stamford, CT, practice to help patients look younger and feel amazing about their appearance. Radiesse® is different from many other injectable treatments in that it first acts as a dermal filler for several months, and then stimulates natural collagen growth within the skin. This combination provides a beautiful, long-lasting result. If you wish to reduce signs of aging, but do not feel ready for surgery, Radiesse® can help you turn back the clock. Please contact our office today to make an appointment with Dr. Nordberg.
How Radiesse® Works
Radiesse® contains small spheres of calcium hydroxyapatite, a substance that occurs naturally within the body, suspended in a gel-like solution. For approximately three months following treatment, Radiesse® acts as a dermal filler by plumping the skin near the injection site and diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. After the first several months, the microspheres stimulate the skin to produce more collagen, the protein that gives skin its elasticity. This creates a smoother, younger-looking appearance that can last for up two years.
Who is a Candidate for Radiesse® Treatment?
Because the main ingredient in Radiesse® occurs naturally in the body, there is no required allergy testing before treatment. Basically, anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of lines, wrinkles, or deepening nasolabial folds on their face can be a candidate for Radiesse®.
Radiesse® is often an excellent solution for patients who want to achieve rejuvenation, but do not wish to undergo surgery. In fact, depending on the patient's goals, Radiesse® can be a viable alternative to facial implants because it can reshape the chin, cheeks, bridge of the nose, and contour of the jaw line. Other patients choose Radiesse® as a way to complement a facelift or other facial plastic surgery procedure to achieve more dramatic rejuvenation. During your consultation with Dr. Nordberg, you will discuss your cosmetic goals, and he will help you determine the most appropriate treatment plan to achieve the results you desire.
Radiesse® Treatment Costs
Each treatment plan is customized according to the patient's needs and goals, so no two Radiesse® treatments cost the same. The total price of your treatment will depend upon a number of factors, including the number of injections, areas of the face that are being treated, and the dosage. In order to make treatments more affordable, our practice is proud to offer CareCredit℠ patient financing. This third-party financing company works like a credit card that can be used to pay for medical and dental procedures, and offers low interest programs with flexible repayment terms.
