Of all available fillers, Radiesse is the hands-down, undefeated heavyweight champion of the world at lifting sagging tissue, especially in the cheek and midface. At Ocean Drive Medspa in Vero Beach Radiesse Plus is used for patients requiring moderate to severe correction of sagging cheeks, sagging brows, and sagging jowls. Our practice also uses Renuva as an option to non-surgical option for autologous fat transfer. Our medical director, Dr. Alan Durkin, was one of the first physicians to introduce this treatment to the United States. He traveled to Sao Paolo, Brazil, and learned from this technique's original innovators.
He is also one of the authors on the national consensus article that was published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal
Best of Both Worlds
Radiesse is a non-hyaluronic acid dermal filler that offers the best of both worlds from a dermal filler perspective. Radiesse offers immediate results upon injection and then causes an internal stimulation of collagen growth, known as collagenases. With Radiesse, the long-term outcome is created by your body’s organic response to the Radiesse molecule, making the outcome as natural as possible. This makes it our filler of choice for almost all patients requiring cheek lifting through nonsurgical means. Radiesse is also used for brow lifts, temple hollow corrections, and the elevation of sagging jowl lines. Hyperdilute Radiesse is Radiesse thinned with saline and lidocaine and injected into sagging skin.
Here at Ocean Drive Medspa in Vero Beach, Florida, we use Hyperdilute Radiesse to target the neck, hands, chest, decolletage, and thighs to smooth the appearance of cellulite. Some treatments to plump sagging skin include Renuva, as well. Renuva initiates a process called fat remodeling, creating a honeycomb-like adipose matrix to allow your natural fat to grow and smooth in areas that have lost volume as you age, such as hands and decolletage. Renuva is also used to fill in indented scars and smooth cellulite dimples. Renuva is a non-surgical option for autologous fat transfer, a good option for people with little fat or who don’t want the expense of liposuction.
For Women and Men Alike
Why we like using Radiesse at Ocean Drive Medspa:
All of our derma-fill injection patients are evaluated by an experienced provider. During your Vero Beach Radiesse consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations.
Your provider will discuss your treatment options and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
You are in Expert Hands
After you and your provider agree to a course of treatment with Radiesse Vero Beach patients will be numbed with our topical anesthetic cream for approximately 20 minutes. After, we cleanse your face to remove the numbing cream and to gently exfoliate your skin.
You are then injected in each area of your face where rejuvenation is desired. During the injections, you may feel slight pressure and some mild discomfort as the product is slowly and gently injected. The pressure and discomfort are temporary and are alleviated once the injection is complete. A combination of massage and cold therapy is used to maximize your comfort and minimize swelling.
Radiesse results are instantaneous. You will continue to see results for up to 12 weeks as your body builds collagen around the Radiesse molecules. In our experience, Radiesse Plus® will last a minimum of one year and up to two years after injection, with an average longevity of 15 months.
Less Time Than Lunch
Dermal fillers are one of the safest cosmetic treatments available, especially when performed by a board-certified medical professional. You will be given specific aftercare instructions at the end of treatment, which usually lasts less than a lunch hour, but you can return to regular activities immediately after your Radiesse injection. However, it is recommended to wait until the next day to return to exercise or strenuous activities and to avoid the sun and tanning beds. Side effects can include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, and itching at the site of injection.
Most dermal filler procedures can be done in 30 minutes or less.
We use numbing cream on the skin before the injection. Radiesse Plus® also has 0.3% lidocaine, a numbing agent used to reduce discomfort inside the gel itself. As a result, Radiesse Plus® can be safely injected in a comfortable fashion with minimal discomfort.
