Radiesse® in Atlanta, GA

As we age, lines and wrinkles continue to form, no matter what skincare products we use to prevent it from happening. If you’re frustrated by deep lines and wrinkles, Radiesse® may be a viable solution for you. Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that treats severe creases, folds and wrinkles by increasing collagen production. Collagen adds fullness and volume to naturally reduce the visible effects of aging, even in severe cases. This treatment is popular among patients who want an alternative to plastic surgery. The Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, led by Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr., offers Radiesse® for men and women who live in and around Buckhead, Vinings, and Sandy Springs.

What Is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler specially formulated to treat moderate to severe creases and wrinkles by increasing skin elasticity, fullness, and volume. Radiesse® is unique in that it targets both the inner and outer layer of the skin to reformat the structure while allowing for visible results on the surface. Radiesse® delivers an underlying microspheric structure to the layers underneath the skin’s surface to lift and support the outer layer. The structure also promotes collagen production to build elasticity, suppleness, and volume. The collagen that is produced fills in the microspheric lattice to make the texture of your skin smoother.

Benefits of Radiesse®

Radiesse® is a unique injectable dermal filler, offering advantages that other dermal fillers simply cannot. Clinically proven to deliver results that last for up to two years, Radiesse® is unmatched in its effectiveness and lasting power. Because the product works to stimulate the natural production of collagen in your skin, it is mimicking a naturally occurring process. This treatment is safe, effective and beneficial to most clients with moderate to severe wrinkles. The improvement in appearance, structure and texture is gradual and natural looking which makes it ideal for candidates who do not wish to have a fast, dramatic change. Some of the unique advantages of Radiesse® include:

  • Immediate results with gradual improvements for up to three months.
  • Long-lasting effectiveness up to two years.
  • Mimics natural processes and the chance of allergic reaction is very low.
  • Contains calcium hydroxylapatite, naturally found in healthy skin.
  • No downtime or recovery.
  • Fast, comfortable procedure.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Radiesse®?

The FDA has approved the formula and determined that it is effective and safe for a majority of patients, but talk to Dr. Work to determine if it is the right choice for you. Generally, Radiesse® is most beneficial for patients between the ages of 35 and 60, who want to enhance their facial contours without surgery. Some of the common areas enhanced by Radiesse® include:

  • Jowls
  • Jawline
  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Nose

Some of the common problem areas corrected by Radiesse® treatment include:

  • Frown lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds

Radiesse® is also a suitable correctional treatment for individuals with a medical condition called facial lipoatrophy. Facial lipoatrophy results in a loss of facial contour, definition, and fat. Radiesse® can restore healthy contours and volume to the faces of these individuals.

How Should I Prepare for Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is an FDA-approved procedure in terms of both effectiveness and safety. Because it contains only natural ingredients, there is little risk associated with the treatment itself. The appointment is fast and easy, with no downtime. Prior to your treatment, you will meet with Dr. Work for an individual consultation. After discussing your desired outcomes, medical history, and health, Dr. Work will determine if you must make any changes before having the procedure itself. Please take care to inform Dr. Works of any medications you take or if you’ve previously had injectables or dermal fillers.

How Is Radiesse® Administered?

Radiesse® is administered by our trusted doctor, Dr. Work. Prior to Radiesse®, Dr. Work may administer local anesthesia to reduce the potential for discomfort. It will take only 15 to 60 minutes to administer the Radiesse® treatment depending on the number of areas being treated.

Radiesse® is injected with very fine, small gauge needles, which are inserted into the top layer of your skin. Although you will see some improvement immediately after the treatment, you will start to see the creases and lines in your skin disappear gradually over the next two to three weeks as your skin produces more collagen. In most cases, results are visible for up to two years following treatment.

How Much Do Radiesse® Treatments Cost in Atlanta?

Because Radiesse® is an elective cosmetic treatment, it is unlikely to be covered by health insurance providers. However, Dr. Work offers his clients financing options for flexible payment plans and maximum convenience. For all procedures, the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery accepts credit cards, cash, and personal checks.

At the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, we provide safe and effective Radiesse® treatments for patients who live in and around Buckhead, Vinings, and Sandy Springs. Contact the friendly staff at our office if you have any more questions.
