Radiesse®, a Filler used by Dr. Hernandez to Restore Volume

Radiesse is a volumizing filler that Dr. Hernandez frequently uses for patients who are seeking to erase or smooth out facial lines, folds, and creases. She can inject small amounts of Radiesse into these telltale signs of aging to help refresh your appearance.

In consultation with Dr. Hernandez, she will identify the areas of your face where Radiesse can be used to re-nourish the facial deficiencies that become pronounced with the natural loss of elastin and collagen.

Radiesse is carefully injected by Dr. Hernandez into several target areas. Radiesse can be used in the indentations that appear at the corners of the mouth, the pre-jowling along the jawline, and in the hollow temporal area. It can also be administered by Dr. Hernandez to soften smile lines.

This volumizing filler is comprised of hydroxyapatite, a calcium-based substance, combined with a water-based gel. While Radiesse initially has the consistency of a rich white paste, Dr. Hernandez prepares the solution adding lidocaine and places the injections into the identified deficiencies of the face.

Radiesse® Replenishes Lost Volume in the Face

The aesthetic effects of Radiesse are almost immediately evident. The filler is injected deep into the subcutaneous layers of the skin. The creases and folds are thus softened and lifted by the volume enhancement of Radiesse.

Injections of Radiesse can last up to a year, restoring lost volume and bringing back a more natural look to your face.

Dr. Hernandez uses Radiesse® for Hand Rejuvenation

Dr. Hernandez also uses Radiesse for rejuvenation of the hands, restoring the natural fat pad on the back of the hand. To return a more youthful look to the hands, Dr. Hernandez can inject Radiesse, replacing that layer of fat which has diminished over time. This volumizing filler acts to return a robust look to the hands, hiding the tendons and veins that show more prominently as we age.
