What to Consider if You're Planning on Radiesse Injections in San Diego

Radiesse injections are an FDA-approved dermal filler that replenishes volume to the areas of the face and back of the hands.

Radiesse offers men the most aesthetic benefits because of their distinct dermal structure. Doing your research to make sure Radiesse is right for you is important, and the qualified team at Ranch and Coast is experienced and capable of helping you achieve the outcome you desire.

Our team of experienced Registered Nurse specialists, offer Radiesse injections for men to rejuvenate their face and hands. Throughout this text we will go over Radiesse injections and discusses what you should consider if you’re interested in Radiesse injections in San Diego.

What are Radiesse Injections?

Age, genetics, and lifestyle choices contribute to collagen breakdown in the face and backs of the hands which creates a wrinkled and sunken look. Radiesse, a soft tissue filler, restores volume to the face and backs of the hands and triggers your body to produce its own collagen.

According to a publication from Merz Aesthetics, Radiesse is a dermal filler that contains, “Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel.” The FDA has approved Radiesse for rejuvenating moderate to severe wrinkles around the mouth, chin, and nose as well as for replenishing volume to the back of the hands.

A report from Merz Aesthetic states soft tissue fillers that stimulate natural collagen growth to provide men with the best aesthetic results since men have thicker skin and more collagen than women. Radiesse is also the ideal dermal injection for smoothing the wrinkles and folds in a man’s face while still maintaining his masculine facial features.

Radiesse Reviews

Radiesse offers men several benefits including immediate results that will last up to 12 months and sometimes longer. In addition, Radiesse only takes about 20 minutes to complete, has little to no downtime, and is minimally invasive. While many cosmetic injections smooth out wrinkles and folds, few restore volume to hollow or sunken areas like Radiesse.

Many patients are satisfied with the results of their Radiesse. A 2008 article published by Clinical Interventions in Aging reports, “in one self-reporting study with very good, good, acceptable, and non-acceptable options, 87% of patients reported very good results. In another study, 89% of 609 patients reported they would choose Radiesse again.”

Radiesse Side Effects and Risks

Although minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are mostly safe, every procedure has its risks. The most important decision you can make is choosing a reputable, experienced, and qualified plastic surgeon who will discuss the side effects and risks of Radiesse with you. Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery has a suite of Registered Nurses as well as Dr. Chasan on staff to ensure the best possible outcomes for your treatment. We highly encourage you to come in to enjoy the confidence of knowing you have a team of medical professionals taking care of you every step of the way if needed.

It is important to note these risks are rare or minimal (such as temporary bruising), but we want you to be educated with the knowledge that experience further minimizes the risks associated with Radiesse treatments. The risks and side effects of Radiesse according to a 2015 article published in The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology include, “bruising, edema, and skin inflammation or irritation but these symptoms last for a short in duration. Rare incidences of untoward foreign body reactions with CaHA have been described in only a handful of case reports in over 10 years of clinical use.” However, it has not been proven if these adverse side effects were caused by Radiesse or other underlying medical issues.

There is a risk of accidental injection into the blood vessels or muscles which can cause severe and long-term effects. As an expert plastic surgeon who knows cosmetic injections are both a science and art, Dr. Paul E. Chasan is aware of these risks and the best techniques for avoiding them. He will gladly conduct a consultation with you and discuss what you should consider if you’re planning on Radiesse injections in San Diego.

Radiesse Injections Cost

Radiesse injections cost significantly less than cosmetic surgeries but are a little more expensive than other cosmetic injections. The benefit of Radiesse is that is also last longer than less expensive cosmetic injections, making it more cost-effective in the long run.

At Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa, we believe cosmetic procedures are a personal decision that should be well thought out.
