Radiesse® in Baltimore, MD
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Theda C. Kontis offers Radiesse® treatments to the residents of Baltimore, Maryland, Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas.
Radiesse® is one of the most popular dermal fillers in the world, helping many patients achieve long-lasting results. Not only will Radiesse® dermal fillers improve facial folds and wrinkles, the product also stimulates the body’s own production of collagen, helping to maintain a youthful, refreshed look for up to a year or more.
How does Radiesse® work?
Collagen is an essential protein that provides structural support in your skin, giving it volume and suppleness. As you age, collagen begins to break down, causing your skin to become thinner and less elastic, and the weakened skin begins to stretch, sag, and wrinkle. When collagen production is boosted, the structural support in your skin is repaired, and the skin can start to rebuild itself, restoring a youthful, fresh appearance. When Radiesse® is injected, it immediately adds volume and filler, correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and restoring hollow or sagging cheeks. Your body is also stimulated naturally to produce new collagen scaffolding in the skin, a building process that continues for several months. Subsequent treatments of Radiesse® can extend the effects well beyond the initial treatment.
How is Radiesse® administered?
Dr. Kontis provides her patients with an extensive consultation to determine the optimum injection sites for Radiesse®. A topical anesthetic may be used to reduce discomfort at the injection location, and treatments are quick and convenient. Within minutes volume and lift are restored at the injection site and lines and wrinkles are smoothed out, giving you a refreshed, younger appearance.
