Stimulate Your Collagen Growth
At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, our team of plastic surgeons and skincare nurses stimulate your collagen with Radiesse — a volumizing filler that helps rebuild the foundation of your facial structure. Radiesse in St. Louis & St. Peters is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in the form of gel and is injected to help grow your collagen.
Is Radiesse Right for You?
Approved by the FDA for the treatment of folds and wrinkles on the face, Radiesse can, in fact, successfully treat and reduce all manner of lines and wrinkles across the skin. That being said, here at Renaissance, perhaps the most popular use for Radiesse comes in the treatment of nasolabial folds, i.e., those deep-set lines running from the corners of the mouth up to the edges of the nose. Other popularly requested location sites for Radiesse injections include the areas around the chin, cheeks, and temples.
The temporary correction of depressed facial scars is also a popular and effective use of Radiesse.
How Radiesse Works
After you communicate the precise locations you’d like treated and one of our plastic surgeons answers any and all questions you may have, the procedure will begin. Your doctor will inject Radiesse solution below the layers of your skin using a very fine needle, after which the location site may be gently massaged, in order to maximize the corrective effect, which can be seen immediately.
After Your Radiesse Treatment
Following your Radiesse treatment, it’s possible that you’ll experience mild swelling, bruising, or itching in the area of the injection sites. We recommend icing the treated area and keeping it elevated; any adverse effects should dissipate in short order.
