Radiesse

When you are young, collagen gives your skin its volume, flexibility, and strength.  During the aging process, your collagen breaks down allowing your facial volume and elasticity to diminish.  The results of this loss are facial wrinkles, sagging skin, and deep lines that rob your face of its youthful appearance but fortunately there is an answer.  Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Radiesse® Volumizing Filler provides the volume you need to diminish the signs of aging that are making you look old. Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel H. Lin M.D, administers this product to fill in your vertical lip lines, the corners of your mouth, and the nasolabial folds or the parentheses, that run from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth.  From his state-of-the-art facility, Shine Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Lin knows how important it is to trust your face with a plastic surgeon that has extensive knowledge of anatomy as well as vast experience.  Although Radiesse® might be considered a simple procedure, any type of injection can deliver less than satisfactory results if performed incorrectly and at Shine Cosmetic Surgery you can be assured that Dr. Lin personally administers all Radiesse® injections to ensure you the most optimal outcome possible.

Radiesse® works similarly to the natural collagen in your skin by hydrating the surface making it smooth and more natural looking.  Radiesse® is considered a synthetic compound that does not contain animal by-products and it is made up of microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite that combine with water-based gel.  Radiesse® is made from the same mineral component as your bone and teeth and because it is a natural substance, your body will absorb it over time. Radiesse® has a higher molecular weight causing it to be thicker than other fillers and it is closer to cartilage (calcium hydroxyapatite) whereas JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are gel forms of hyaluronic acid (HA).

Radiesse® injections are used to:

  • Smooth face and lip wrinkles
  • Enhance your lips
  • Stimulate natural collagen production
  • Replenish lost volume
  • Treat wrinkles and folds
  • Produce results that last a year or more
  • Eliminate fine lines
  • Improves acne scars and other abnormalities that mark your facial skin
  • Reduce lines between your nose, mouth, and on your upper lip
  • Fill in your smile and frown lines
  • Diminish blemishes
  • Restore your natural contours

Radiesse® mainly works on static facial lines, which are noticeable when you are not moving your face.  Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is unique because it provides structure acting as a scaffold underneath your skin.  Radiesse® also stimulates your own natural collagen to grow and this continues for several months, which extends the initial effect.  That is what makes Radiesse® different from other fillers because it has been clinically proven to last from 2-5 years.

There are some people that are not good candidates for Radiesse® and that is why Dr. Lin looks forward to evaluating your individual situation and discussing the expectations you desire.  Depending on the thickness of your skin, location and severity of your wrinkles, and the anatomy of your facial features, Dr. Lin will customize a plan to improve your appearance so if you would like to learn more about Radiesse®, he is available to answer all of your questions.  Having personally administered thousands of facial injections over the years, Dr. Lin is quite adept at figuring out which injectable filler is best for your face.  Radiesse® is quick, comfortable, and convenient, with immediately results so if you are ready to discover what millions of patients worldwide have experienced, please contact Shine Cosmetic Surgery today and let us help you begin your journey towards a more youthful and refreshed you.
