Radiesse®

Imagine young-looking, wrinkle-free skin.  Dr. Anitha Reddy, Medical Director of M.D. Aesthetics and Wellness Institute in Tampa Florida, has found that the use of the filler Radiesse® may be the best treatment available to date. Previously, the only way to fill these wrinkles was with a lifetime of bovine (cow) collagen injections, which can cause allergic reactions, or solid implants that can look and feel unnatural.

Radiesse® does not require allergy testing. Radiesse® is a product used for many years in prosthetic implants for dental, facial and orthopedic surgery.  Radiesse® consists of calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a normal constituent of your bones and, therefore, should not cause inflammatory or immune reactions. Dr. Reddy uses this filler for filling nasolabial (folds and lines in the face) to reduce signs of aging.

Radiesse® treatments are performed in our office and takes about 30 minutes. Radiesse® is pre-loaded in syringes for use in treating and correcting your facial lines and other soft tissue defects. The procedure itself is simple. First we apply a little topical anesthetic. Then Radiesse® is injected into the wrinkle through a tiny needle placed just under your skin. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse® is not absorbed by the body. Therefore, we do not need to over-fill the wrinkle and your results are immediate..

Depending on the area treated, most corrections can last for several months.  However, in the typical case, some touch-up treatments are necessary.  The most positive factor in using Radiesse® is that patients don’t have to come back every three months and they still look great.  If you want to get rid of your wrinkles with a safe, natural solution, Radiesse® may be for you.

During your consultation with Dr. Reddy, she will explain the benefits of Radiesse® and any other fillers being considered and recommend the most effective for achieving your desired goal.
