What can New Orleans patients expect during the Radiesse procedure?


Radiesse is popular cosmetic dermal filler that dermatologists use to address deep wrinkles, lines, and folds of the face. Radiesse is also popular for areas of the body including the back of the hands, which show the signs of aging even before the face in some patients. This filler can assist with refinement of the nose and augmentation of the chin and cheeks. Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite that is thicker than traditional hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane. This allows better augmentation and correction of problem areas with less material.

Radiesse is administered through injections, and some patients may be concerned about their comfort during treatments. Dr. Mary Lupo, in New Orleans, is a board certified dermatologist who offers this and many other corrective procedures for her dermatological patients. She focuses on making sure that the Radiesse procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible by using topical anesthetics and mixing lidocaine into the Radiesse.

The treatment begins with local anesthesia. This numbs the area in which the injections are to be administered. The injection points are determined, and antiseptic will be applied to the skin. The Radiesse is injected into the areas where deep folds and wrinkles appear. The entire process takes approximately 15 minutes, and allows patients to go about their day with little to no downtime or side effects.

Radiesse is one of the longer lasting dermal fillers available for patients at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology. Because it stimulates collagen production, results are seen over the course of time. They can last anywhere from nine to 18 months from just one treatment. Maintaining the results requires that patients schedule periodic visits with their dermatologist for touch-up treatments to slow the signs of aging. Dr. Lupo prefers Radiess to the other fillers for chin and hands.

Dr. Mary Lupo, of Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, offers a variety of dermal fillers including Juvéderm, Restylane, Belotero, Sculptra, and Radiesse, as well as medications such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin to reduce lines and wrinkles. During an initial consultation appointment, patients can ask about the various injectables and learn which one is best for their specific concerns.
