Dermatology, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in New York City (NYC) and Manhattan
If you have been gazing into the mirror and feeling as though there is no way to turn back the time on your wrinkles, you're definitely not alone. The effects of age, sun damage, stress, and many other environmental and behavioral factors can give your face an appearance that you're not too happy to show off. However, there is a solution that will allow you to look like the reflection you remember from years past.
At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, our New York City dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, offer treatments with an injectable called Radiesse®. Using Radiesse®, Dr. Katz can fill in facial wrinkles, lines, and folds in order to make them appear plump and youthful. Radiesse® can also be used to fill in the hollows or sunken areas of your hands to renew a healthy and rejuvenated look there as well. It will also help hide prominent veins or tendons that may be visible in the back of your hands, giving you the youthful look that you desire. To further discuss Radiesse® and how it can be useful for you, please contact us today by calling (212) 688-5882.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an injectable gel that is made of calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a normal constituent of bone. Because this substance is normally found in bone, it is an ideal product because it won't normally cause your body to consider it a foreign object so it doesn't cause side effects.
Radiesse® is used to plump the skin in areas that are sunken, wrinkled, or have developed lines on your face on hands. The microspheres of calcium within it work to plump the injected skin and also encourage your body to stimulate collagen in those areas. Collagen is one of the most important building blocks to have plump, naturally healthy-looking skin.
Where Can Radiesse® Be Used?
Radiesse® is FDA-approved to be injected into the following locations:
- Smile lines -- lines that run from the base of the nose to the corners of your mouth (nosolabial folds)
- Corners of your mouth -- can be injected if this area appears to be downturned as though you're frowning
- Wrinkles in your chin
- Saggy skin on the sides of your chin
- Lines that run downward from your mouth to your chin
- Sunken areas on the backs of your hands
- Skin between your fingers that appears wrinkled, thin, or sunken
