Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a Mayo Clinic-trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon serving residents of the greater Nashville and Franklin, TN area who desire skin rejuvenation. Radiesse® is a convenient dermal filler and injectable option for meeting your goals of achieving smoother, younger skin.
What is Radiesse®?
Over time, the natural collagen that supports youthful, smooth skin breaks down, leaving us with less voluptuous, sagging skin. The results of which are wrinkles, facial lines, and an overall loss of elasticity. Radiesse® is an allergy-free biocompatible and non-toxic skin rejuvenation option for combating these common signs of aging around the mouth and chin. Radiesse® not only smooths wrinkles but also stimulates collagen production, so your skin gains back more of its tone and tightness naturally. Radiesse® can be used to reduce or minimize the following problem areas:
- Heavy smile lines
- Oral commissure
- Pre-jowl (chin lines starting to sag)
- Lines running from the corner of your mouth to your chin (sometimes called marionette lines)
The Radiesse® Difference
There are many dermal fillers and injectables available at the office of Dr. Robbins to combat the signs of aging, including commonly used Restylane®. Both Radiesse® and Restylane® provide many benefits as treatment options. A consultation with Dr. Robbins helps determine which option is right for you.
If you are looking for longer-lasting results, Radiesse® may be the better option as it is clinically proven to last longer than Restylane® treatments, which require additional treatments every six months for continued enjoyment of optimal results. Radiesse®, on the other hand, stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen; allowing your skin to begin a natural reparation process over time. Radiesse® is not right for everyone. Consult Dr. Robbins when deciding among the many great options for skin rejuvenation in Nashville, TN.
Candidates for Radiesse® Treatment
Good candidates for Radiesse® include those with a dissatisfaction of how their mouth is surrounded by lines or individuals with scarring and depressions around the mouth or chin. Radiesse® dermal filler is made of a synthetic substance of calcium hydroxylapatite with no allergic reactions associated with it, so it is safe for even those with many allergies. Radiesse® is also safe and effective for candidates of any skin tone between the ages of 35 to 60 with realistic expectations of how Radiesse® may temporarily treat these common signs of aging.
To prepare for Radiesse® treatments in Dr. Robbins’ Nashville office, schedule a consult with Dr. Robbins to discuss your goals. Radiesse® treatments generally take between 15 to 60 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.
Prior to the first injection, a numbing agent will be gently placed on the treatment area to ensure maximum comfort. After treatment, you will see some improvement immediately. Final results will emerge after two to three weeks. Most patients return to normal activities the next day. In most cases, no further follow-up treatment is needed as Dr. Robbins’ clients enjoy one of the biggest advantages of Radiesse® treatment—optimal results lasting up to three years.
