Radiesse smooths lines for a more youthful appearance. As we age, the body produces less and less collagen, which is needed to keep skin tight and vibrant. Combine this natural process with years of exposure to sun and environmental toxins, and you can see just where lines, wrinkles and folds come from. Here at Pierre Skin Institute, our priority is your confidence. To give you the skin you desire, Dr. Pierre utilizes Radiesse where applicable.

There are many dermal fillers on the market, but Radiesse is different because it is composed of tiny calcium beads. This filler is essentially made from the same calcium minerals that form bones and teeth. Safe and effective, this biocompatible injectable filler does not require skin testing and carries no side effects. Normal activities may be resumed immediately following your treatment session. In some instances, swelling or bruising may occur. Any discomfort and swelling should subside in a day or two, and may be alleviated with ice and over the counter pain reducers.

Because this treatment requires the use of a needle, Dr. Pierre adds in a small amount of lidocaine in order to make patients as comfortable as possible during their treatment session. Patients may also request numbing cream be applied before treatment for the highest degree of comfort. Injected into affected areas, Radiesse plumps lines and stimulates the natural production of collagen. Consequently, you will receive immediate results that last six to twelve months.

It is important to consult with a qualified physician when seeking to improve lines and folds in skin. While Radiesse is an excellent dermal filler, applicable in many circumstances, it may not be recommended for use in every situation. For instance, Dr. Pierre would not advise this particular filler for use on the lip, as calcium beads may form small bumps under the skin. During your consultation, the most suitable treatment options will be discussed, allowing you and your doctor to determine the most appropriate course of action to help you achieve your desired outcome.

If you're experiencing signs of aging such as marionette lines, nasolabial folds or have depressed scarring, visit Pierre Skin Care Institute to see if Radiesse is the optimal treatment to give you the youthful glow you desire.
