One of the most common signs of aging is volume loss, which can affect the appearance of the face and the upper hands. In addition to causing the hollows of the cheeks and under-eye area to appear sunken, volume loss can also lead to fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and other issues. Fortunately, our experienced physician, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, offers Radiesse® for facial and hand rejuvenation. This FDA-approved non-surgical treatment option can offer nearly instantaneous aesthetic enhancement without the drawbacks associated with surgery.

What Can Radiesse® Do?
Comprised of a biocompatible substance called calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse® is designed to restore youthful volume to the cheeks, under-eyes, and hands, as well as to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, Radiesse® can minimize the appearance of facial scars and refine facial contour. Results are visible virtually instantly, and the recovery process is minimal. This innovative dermal filler can be used alone or combined with other cosmetic injectables and non-surgical treatment for more comprehensive benefits.
When you arrive for your initial consultation, Dr. Ebrahim will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to suit your individual needs and cosmetic goals. The procedure is brief, typically taking between 30 minutes and one hour to complete, although your experience may vary. Radiesse® will be administered to your areas of concern using an ultra-fine needle for the most comfortable experience possible. Additionally, local anesthetic or cold compresses can be used to further minimize discomfort. Some mild bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection sites is normal, and these effects should fade within a few hours.
How Long Will It Last?
One the treatment is complete, you should begin to notice immediate improvement in the area of concern. Radiesse® is designed to be long-lasting, and many patients report benefits for up to one year or longer. If you love the way Radiesse® enhances your appearance, you should be able to extend the effect with occasional “touch-up” sessions from our skilled injectors.
