Radiesse is a calcium-based filler that is used to volumize and correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It helps to soften smile lines and marionette lines, as well as add volume to the cheeks. The calcium-based microspheres suspended in gel work instantly resulting in immediate correction. Radiesse stimulates your own natural collagen to grow. Natural growth continues for several months after injection. Results can last for up to a year, or more in some patients.
Radiesse is a quick procedure normally completed within 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The face will be thoroughly cleansed and then marked with ink for precise injections. A numbing cream is usually applied before the injection occurs. The gel is delivered using a fine needle into the deeper dermal layer or subcutaneous tissue until the right volume is achieved.

"The doctor is great!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Oct 24, 2019
"I could not be happier with the results and the overall experience of having a facelift with Dr. Aston. Like many men I worried that I would LOOK like I had plastic surgery, that the process would be painful, and that I would later regret my decision. None of those fears have been realized. Not only is Dr. Aston a skilled plastic surgeon, he is also a talented artist. He gave me just the right look: refreshed and youthful. I also experienced very little pain. Surprisingly little, in fact, and only used prescription medication the day of the surgery. Finally, Dr. Aston surrounds himself with a first-rate team of nurses who stay with you at a local hotel for at least one night. Kudos to Dr. Aston and his team."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 25, 2019

What to Expect
After treatment, there may be redness, swelling and possibly bruising around the injection sites, but these go away after several hours/days. Patients will be able to resume their normal routine — although strenuous exercise should be limited for the first 24 hours. Patients will see their results immediately, and the results will continue to improve due to the collagen stimulating properties of Radiesse.
