Radiesse® in Phoenix, AZ
Looking younger is important to men and women like you who live in Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert and the surrounding communities of Phoenix. Believe it or not, surgery is not the only way to erase the lines and wrinkles that make you look older. Radiesse® is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable treatment that gives you a younger appearance in less than one hour. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C. Leverett, offers Radiesse® treatments for the residents of Phoenix and surrounding communities.
What is Radiesse®?
Dermal fillers, such as Radiesse®, are the fastest growing segment of the anti-aging market, and with good reason. The quick, simple treatments provide long-lasting results. Radiesse® targets signs of aging that are caused by reduced collagen levels. Collagen is important for maintaining smooth, flawless skin because it forms an underlying support structure that keeps the skin “lifted.” As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, and our skin “collapses” along the areas we use to smile, frown, squint and purse our lips.
Benefits of Radiesse®
Radiesse® is unique amongst dermal fillers because it softens lines and wrinkles in two ways. First, the calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) in the formulation immediately adds volume to the skin. In the months after the injections, the CaHA stimulates collagen production. Your body eventually absorbs the CaHA, leaving behind newly-formed collagen that works as an anti-aging solution for up to one year.
Good Candidates for Radiesse® Treatments
Dr. Leverett recommends Radiesse® for treating:
- Smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds or “parentheses lines,” that go from the outside of the nostrils to the outer corners of the mouth
- Horizontal lines on the chin
- A downward appearance at the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines that start at the corners of the mouth and extend downward to the jawline
- Hollow areas that may appear on either side of the chin
What Can I Expect from My Radiesse® Treatments?
Dr. Leverett makes several injections with a fine gauge needle to deposit Radiesse® into the skin. The treatment only takes 10 to 30 minutes, and you see a visible improvement in your lines and wrinkles.
After the Radiesse® Treatment
You may experience minor tenderness and swelling around each injection site for the first 24 to 48 hours. You should avoid rubbing or massaging the area for at least one week. This allows time for the CaHA in Radiesse® to settle in your skin. The anti-aging benefits of Radiesse® last for up to one year.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
The cost of treatment with Radiesse® is based on the amount of product that is used to soften your lines and wrinkles. We can provide an accurate cost after your consultation. Dr. Leverett offers financing through CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Our office also accepts Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, cash and cashier’s checks.
