When to Consider Radiesse
Radiesse can be used in many areas of the face and body. However, numerous studies have found Radiesse to be particularly effective at correcting nasolabial folds (deep folds between the nose and the mouth), marionette lines (folds around the corners of the mouth) and other lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Radiesse can also be used to fill in depressed scars and contour deficiencies.

Ideal candidates should be motivated to improve their appearance and possess realistic expectations. Radiesse is not ideal for those who have an active skin infection or anyone who has previously experienced an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in Radiesse.
What to Expect During Treatment
The consultation: In order to determine if you are good candidate for Radiesse, you will need to be honest and upfront about every aspect of your health. Your consultation will include an exam, as well as a discussion of your medical history and cosmetic goals. This information will help Dr. Khattab determine if Radiesse is the right choice for you.
Procedure: Prior to treatment, your face will be cleansed with an antiseptic. A numbing agent may be applied to the treatment areas if your are hypersensitive to pain. Using a fine needle, Dr. Khattab will carefully inject Radiesse beneath your skin at pre-discussed treatment sites. Dr. Khattab will then gently massage the treatment site to ensure even distribution.
Recovery: Immediately following treatment, your skin may feel fuller than normal. You may also experience some temporary swelling or redness. There is no downtime required following treatment, but Dr. Khattab may recommend that you abstain from alcoholic beverages or strenuous exercise during the evening following your procedure.
Results: Once injected, Radiesse works by stimulating and supporting collagen production below the surface of your skin to help rebuild the skin’s foundation. Radiesse treatments will leave your face looking natural and refreshed. Results can be seen for a year or more. Each person is different though, so be sure to discuss your expectations with Dr. Khattab before choosing Radiesse.
