Radiesse Fillers in Miami, FL
Average Cost: From $1000
Radiesse® is used by Dr. Maercks to fill almost any wrinkle. Made of a substance called calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse is a biocompatible dermal filler that is FDA-approved and is often used for treatment of wrinkles and folds that are severe to moderate.
Here at The Maercks Institute, Radiesse is typically used for:
- Sunken cheeks
- Oral commissure
- Facial contouring or augmentation
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
Radiesse actually works with the body to create new collagen in order to volumize the skin and remove the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Maercks is passionate about enriching your life by creating the look you’ve always wanted. Gravity and life can take its toll on your face, and we are here to ensure that you love the way you look no matter how old your face says you are. Each patient is treated as an individual, and we create tailored treatment plans to ensure that the best treatments are used for your specific situation.
What to Expect
Dr. Maercks uses a fine needle to inject the substance at the chosen injection site. After the injection, he may massage the area in order to obtain a smoother result. Radiesse acts immediately as a building block for the body to create collagen. Over time, metabolism will process and remove the product. Radiesse includes lidocaine in order to numb the area during treatment to keep you comfortable.
Those with hypersensitivity or severe allergies are not good candidates for this procedure.
Results typically last for a year, although some may see results for up to 18 months. Once the results have faded, patients return to The Maercks Institute for a follow-up treatment.
Radiesse is a fairly painless, comfortable procedure with few side effects. Some patients report mild swelling, discoloration, tenderness or irritation at the site of the injection, although any side effects should fade after several days.
