At The Center for Eyelid and Facial Plastic Surgery, we use fillers either alone or in combination with surgical procedures to restore volume, dealing with both deep and superficial wrinkles. This “stacking” approach to restore volume includes personalizing a program to the patient’s needs. Thicker fillers will volumize the deeper wrinkles/shadows, with the thinner fillers for the fine wrinkles, especially around the lip and corners of the eyelids. Again with a filler experience that dates back many years, to use in Europe before hyaluronic acid fillers were FDA approved in the U.S., experience is why our patients keep coming back.

A treatment plan based on fillers and skin care/rejuvenation is the perfect temporizing approach for the patient who may not be ready to consider surgery. This can be discussed and personally formulated to your needs at the time of consultation.

Radiesse stimulates the body to make new collagen, this provides a longer lasting result, additionally, the gel and calcium based microspheres add volume to the injected areas.

Age can bring many positive things -- experience, wisdom, self-awareness -- but it also brings some visual reminders of the years gone by, like wrinkles and sagging skin. People may not mind getting older, but most don't want to look older, and they'll do anything they can to avoid it.

How Does Radiesse Work?

Radiesse is provided by The Center for Eyelid and Facial Plastic Surgery in Bethesda MD

Making lines and droopy skin disappear used to be the domain of dramatic measures like face-lifts and tummy tucks, but now many people who want to avoid surgery turn to less invasive procedures like Botox and collagen injections. Radiesse, a semipermanent dermal filler, is another nonsurgical product that people can use to decrease the facial signs of aging.

Also known as skin fillers, dermal fillers are injected under a person's skin to reduce wrinkles and lines on the surface. Collagen, hyaluronic acid and fat are all commonly used as dermal fillers. Fillers are less invasive than a face-lift, but they also don't last nearly as long.

Radiesse in particular can smooth out deep wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth. It can also add contours to areas of the face that have lost their shape due to sagging skin, such as the cheeks and jaw line. But what really sets Radiesse apart is that it stimulates the growth of new collagen, the protein in your skin that gives it a smooth texture and youthful elasticity. Radiesse is made up of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel. As the gel is absorbed by the body, it leaves the calcium hydroxylapatite behind. But your body's natural collagen eventually fills in the space that the gel left behind.
