Radiesse is a safe, effective dermal filler used to restore volume to areas of the face that have lost definition over time or perhaps would benefit from an improvement in shape to harmonize the entire face.
For example, chin implants are often used to make a face more proportional and balanced. When patients do not want a silicone implant in their body, Radiesse is a great alternative to achieve a more beautiful facial proportion with less downtown and no scar.
At Troiano Facial Plastics, located in West Palm Beach, FL, Dr. Chelsea Troiano specializes in Radiesse injections to help her patients achieve a more youthful and refreshed look.
Radiesse is an injectable filler made from calcium-based microspheres suspended in a naturally occurring gel. As we lose bone in the rest of our body from the aging process, we also lose it in our face. Radiesse is used to add definition to these bony areas that have experienced bone loss in the face, such as the cheeks and jawline. With Radiesse injections, you can achieve natural-looking results that last up to 24 months.
Radiesse fillers are made with a synthetic form of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) and are designed to restore lost volume in the face.
They help add volume to areas that have become sunken due to aging or other reasons. West Palm Beach Radiesse provider, Dr. Troiano, most commonly uses this product for the chin and jawline to help refine and reshape these areas. It can also be used for skin rejuvenation to stimulate collagen production in the neck, chest, hands, above the knee, and even in the back areas of our bodies like our bottom. The Radiesse is processed in a particular way if Dr. Troiano uses it in this manner. Results from skin rejuvenation using Radiesse are more gradual as the product is used by the body to create more collagen.
Women who have lost volume in their faces due to age, weight loss, or other factors can benefit from Radiesse. It helps to restore a natural look by adding volume to areas that need it.

When used in this way by Dr. Troiano, Radiesse gives your face a more youthful appearance. Here are some of the ways Radiesse can help your facial features and complexion:

Radiesse treatments typically last 24 months, but the product is broken down over time by the body. Because of this, most patients keep their results looking amazing by placing more product around 15 months. After first placement of the filler, Dr. Troiano likes to see her patients back after two weeks to make sure the results are perfect.
The cost of Radiesse treatment varies depending on your individual needs and treatment plan.
