RADIESSE IN NEW ORLEANS
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that restores a more youthful appearance to the face, neck and hands. It improves sagging facial soft tissue and deep nasolabial folds by replenishing lost volume primarily in the cheek area. Additionally, it stimulates collagen production for gradual improvement over a period of months. Be sure to read on about our unique use of Radiesse, “hyperdilute Radiesse”, which we use for rejuvenation of the aging neck.
Radiesse is made up of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel.
Injection of facial fillers, including Radiesse, requires attention to both art and medical science. Dr. Velargo and Dr. Hendrick have extensive experience with the properties of Radiesse in the skin so that their results are always natural-looking.
Other facial fillers include the RHA line of fillers, Restylane Lyft®, Restylane®, Juvéderm Ultra Plus®, and Juvéderm Voluma® among others. Drs. Velargo and Hendrick may suggest that a combination of these injectables, including Botox®, Jeuveau®, or Dysport® is the best way to achieve your desired look. Skin resurfacing procedures can also soften certain lines and wrinkles.

Radiesse is ideal to correct:

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING RECOVERY FROM RADIESSE?
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF RADIESSE LAST?
The effects of Radiesse injections last approximately one year, although some people have seen the results last longer.
The product stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, so less product may be needed for a similar result in subsequent maintenance injections.
WHAT IS HYPERDILUTE RADIESSE?
The New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery is one of the first clinics in the area to now offer a Hyperdilute Radiesse treatment. In recent years, Radiesse has been increasingly used in the hyperdiluted form as a biostimulatory agent rather than simply a volumizing filler. By scaling back the volumizing effects of Radiesse, our doctors can really hone in on its skin rejuvenating properties.
Hyperdiluted Radiesse is ideal for patients who suffer from the appearance of an aging neck caused by:
- Thin, crepey skin
- Deficient fat volume
- Vertical platysmal banding of the neck
Although our Hyperdilute Radiesse treatment can be performed alone, we highly a 3 step treatment plan we call the triple threat to the aging neck for the most dramatic results.
This age targeting trifecta allows our experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon to exponentially reduce the appearance of an aging neck with three non-surgical procedures.
