Today there are multiple dermal fillers available for you to use to get a more youthful, refreshed appearance. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatment offered by Las Vegas, NV plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Costa is wonderful for mild and moderate wrinkles and lines on the face, and for fixing volume loss in the hands. Women and men who don't have time for frequent appointments appreciate the lasting results (over a year in many cases) of Radiesse. With microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a flexible gel, Radiesse fills and smoothes the appearance of your face without the time and expense of surgery. Radiesse is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to safely and effectively volumize your face. It may be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) for a unique procedure to rejuvenate your appearance. Look refreshed and improve your self-image with Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatments at Platinum Plastic Surgery.
Women and men who are in good overall health and want to correct their mild to moderate wrinkles and lines are ideal patients for Radiesse treatments. It can improve marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the edges of the lips. Radiesse is also designed to treat volume that is often lost with age in the hands to help them appear fuller and more youthful. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in Radiesse. Be sure to talk to Dr. Costa if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any relevant medical history. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't get Radiesse injections.

"Las Vegas Best of the Best Plastic Surgeon - I am a very highly ecstatic patient of plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Costa, MD. I had liposuction completed my front and back of my body in ten different areas in one surgical appointment. Dr. Costa is very perfectionistic and combines his cutting-edge knowledge of science and clinical abilities to obtain my superior results. It also is very obvious from the beginning that Dr. Costa has over 10 years of cutting-edge plastic surgery experience and stands out in Las Vegas where there are numerous plastic surgeons. From the pre-op visit, to the day of surgical preparation, all of my concerns were answered in a no rush manner with detailed informative and educated feedback that had taken into account of my plastic surgery goals.

Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Platinum Plastic Surgery in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To start the procedure, you will lie in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but, if preferred, a local anesthetic may be spread on the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, determined during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the treatment is done, a compress will be held to the treated areas to reduce bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild redness, swelling, and bruising. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Platinum Plastic Surgery. Many patients have visible results minutes after the treatment with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and lifted. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Chris Costa at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
