Radiesse in Jersey City, NJ

There is no uniform way that people age. Some people first notice excessive wrinkles, while others experience a loss of facial volume. For those experiencing both, Radiesse® can be an ideal solution. Board-certified in both general surgery and phlebology, Dr. Zbigniew Moszczynski of Vein and Skin Studio provides Radiesse® treatment to those living in Bayonne and the surrounding locales in New Jersey who want fewer wrinkles and firmer, more youthful skin.

What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is a cosmetic treatment that can help those who have fine lines and wrinkles. It can help because it adds skin volume and fills in problem areas. It also adds facial volume, which helps those who have lost skin plumpness because of sun exposure and the aging process. Crow’s feet, bags under the eyes, nasolabial folds, and sagging cheeks can be minimized or eliminated with Radiesse®.

Radiesse® also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps plump the skin internally. This filler gets broken down by the body, and new collagen forms at the injection sites.

Radiesse® Benefits

Radiesse® offers numerous benefits, including the following:

  • Minimizes or reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Helps lift skin around the eyes
  • Removes dark circles under the eyes
  • Reduces the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Smooths out lip lines
  • Restores facial volume, lending a more youthful, uplifted appearance

How are Radiesse® Injections Administered?

First, your skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution by Dr. Moszczynski. He will use a very fine needle to inject Radiesse® beneath the surface of your skin. The Radiesse® gel contains lidocaine — a numbing agent. This will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment.

After Radiesse® is injected, it can go to work supporting tissues beneath the treatment sites. This creates a lift that reduces skin sagging. Depending upon your desires, Radiesse® can be injected into multiple sites.

After the treatment is complete, Dr. Moszczynski will let you look into a mirror so that you can observe the initial results. Most patients are pleasantly surprised to see how quickly results are apparent. Radiesse® treatments can improve both your appearance and self-esteem.

Radiesse® Injections Preparations

You should avoid taking any blood thinners for several days before your treatment. This is recommended so that any bleeding or bruising is minimized. You should also refrain from taking medications containing ibuprofen. Be sure to talk with the doctor who prescribed your medications prior to your procedure to ensure that is safe to temporarily stop taking them.

You should also avoid the consumption of alcohol and stop smoking in the days leading up to your procedure. Dr. Moszczynski may provide additional instructions, depending upon your individual situation.

Radiesse® Recovery

You should be able to resume your daily activities immediately after leaving our office. No downtime is necessary.

Some patients elect to take perhaps half a day off to fully recover after their treatment. Some will experience minor bruising or swelling at the injection sites. You may decide to take some time off if you are concerned about others noticing any swelling or bruising.

How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?

Radiesse® treatment is considered to be an elective procedure by most insurance companies, so the cost is not normally covered. We do, however, offer a number of payment options, including payment by cash, personal check, or credit card. We also try to make Radiesse® treatment affordable by offering other financing options through CareCredit®.

Are Skin Tests Required?

Radiesse® contains natural ingredients; hence, no skin testing is required. No allergic reaction is expected because the body does not recognize Radiesse® as a foreign substance.

How Long Will my treatment Last?

Since Radiesse® is considered to be a stable substance that is not easily metabolized by the body, it lasts for a long time. Treatment effects vary for each individual but generally last up to one year.

Does the Treatment Hurt?

Any injection, including Radiesse®, may be uncomfortable. However, discomfort is minimized due to the use of a very fine needle. A numbing agent may also ease any discomfort.

Would I Make a Good Candidate for Radiesse® Treatment?

You may make a good candidate if you are concerned about the loss of facial volume due to age or extreme weight loss. Those with folds around the mouth or eyes may also benefit from Radiesse® treatment. Radiesse® can restore the youthful, vibrant look you once enjoyed. It can help improve your appearance while avoiding the need for surgery.
