Radiesse® in Birmingham, AL
Long-lasting results from anti-aging treatments is one of the most common requests by men and women in Birmingham, Alabaster and surrounding areas in Alabama. Dermatologists of Birmingham address this need by offering Radiesse®, an injectable dermal filler for correcting wrinkles on the face and hands.
What is Radiesse®?
Moderate to severe wrinkles in the lower face present a unique challenge. Dermal fillers that are approved for use in this area may not soften the wrinkles as much as you wish. Radiesse® provides our patients with a solution that not only helps with moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth, but also provides long-lasting results.
Our board-certified dermatologists recommend Radiesse® as an anti-aging solution for:
- Wrinkles at the corners of the mouth and on the chin
- Smile lines
- Folds along the pre-jowl
- Marionette lines
Benefits of Radiesse®
The primary benefit of Radiesse® is that it works to stimulate your collagen production to reduce lines and wrinkles. Other benefits include:
- Short treatment times of less than one hour
- No incisions, downtime or scars
- Treatment for moderate to severe wrinkles and pre-jowl folds
- Results may last 12 months or longer
How Does Radiesse® Work?
Radiesse® stimulates collagen production by introducing microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite into the skin. The spheres give a slight lift to the skin upon application, and trigger your body to produce more collagen. The collagen fibers are laid out around and in between the microspheres. As your body absorbs the spheres, the voids are filled in with more collagen fibers.
What to Expect from Radiesse®
Radiesse® is a smooth gel that is administered via multiple injections into the deep layer of your skin. The injections must be made at the required depth to effectively produce a consistent improvement across the wrinkle. You see immediate results thanks to the microspheres, and the wrinkles continue to gradually improve as the collagen fibers are introduced to the area.
All injections carry a risk of symptoms after the treatment, such as localized swelling, tenderness, bleeding and bruising. These symptoms should only last one to three days after your Radiesse® treatment.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost in Birmingham?
Several factors affect the cost of a Radiesse® treatment, such as individual anatomy, dosing and number of injections. We have a better understanding of these factors after your consultation, and this is when we can provide the most accurate estimate of cost. For your convenience, Dermatologists of Birmingham offers several payment options, including cash, checks, major credit cards and financing.
If you have moderate to severe wrinkles in your lower face, Radiesse® may be an option. The treatments improve these challenging signs of aging, and the results may last for a year or longer.
