An innovative dermal filler that helps stop aging in its tracks
As the skin ages, we see its deterioration manifested as wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, creases and furrows that make us look tired and spent. Yet there is another sign of aging just as troublesome, and that is the decrease in facial volume that occurs as we advance in years.
The body’s reserves of collagen and elastin, two key proteins responsible for the skin’s suppleness, youthfulness and resilience, begin to dwindle, causing a hollowness in the cheeks and other areas.
Radiesse is an FDA-approved dermal filler that helps to reverse the most unwanted autographs of time, while correcting the loss of volume that plagues the face and hands.
San Diego clients who find that they suffer from entrenched nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the nose and mouth, as well as a lack of volume and suppleness in the face and hands may be good candidates for the procedure.
Radiesse relies on the power of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) molecules that are suspended in a gel-like substance. They work to hydrate the skin, while simultaneously helping to boost the body’s production of collagen.
Your practitioner will use a finely gauged needle to administer your injections. This usually takes about 15 minutes, so you can be in and out of the office over your lunch break. Since Radiesse is formulated with Lidocaine, the injection is virtually painless for most clients.
You will see immediate improvement in your skin’s tone and volume, however, the full effects of Radiesse will be most pronounced after 3 months’ time.
If you would like to learn more about whether Radiesse is the best treatment for your anti-aging needs, please contact our San Diego office to schedule a private consultation.
During this visit, Dr. Karam will examine your skin, take note of your medical and cosmetic history, and answer any outstanding questions or concerns you may still have. He will cover important topics such as costs, insurance and financing; recovery and downtime; anesthesia; and of course your desired results.
Dr. Karam can provide you with access to our digest of before and after photos so that you can get a better idea of the results that former patients have achieved with Radiesse.
The consultation is also a good time to discuss any other procedures of interest with Dr. Karam, such as a facelift, blepharoplasty, liposuction or chemical peel. Combining treatments can sometimes be more cost-effective, or decrease your downtime, so don’t hesitate to ask.
Dr. Karam, who is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and American Board of Otolaryngology, offers services in San Diego County including San Diego, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Carmel Valley, Encinitas, Rancho Bernardo and La Jolla in Southern California.
