Dermal Skin Filler Procedure

Balshi Dermatology in Delray Beach performs a Dermal Skin Filler Procedure with client Stacy.

RADIESSE® wrinkle filler is at the forefront of the next generation in dermal fillers. It does more than just fill in lines and wrinkles it volumizes, giving that “WOW” effect. RADIESSE® wrinkle filler is proven to stimulate your body to generate new collagen and creates soft, natural results instantly that last up to a year or more in many patients.RADIESSE® is a dermal filler which contains tiny Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Once injected, it stimulates the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes these tiny calcium-based microspheres, leaving behind only your body’s own natural collagen.

In this day and age, most of us are familiar with the importance of collagen. It’s what gives your young skin its full, supple appearance. And when it breaks down, you may begin to see skin laxity and facial wrinkles. When the collagen goes away, it takes facial volume and elasticity with it, leaving you with a face that may look older than how you feel inside.

If you aren’t ready to grow old gracefully, treatment with RADIESSE® wrinkle filler can bring back your own natural collagen and restore facial volume.

Common areas of the face that are treated with RADIESSE® include the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, oral commissure (corner of the mouth), pre–jowl sulcus (area either side of chin).

Post-Treatment Information

After the treatment, patients may experience slight bruising around the area that was treated. This normally fades quickly. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Any side effect is only a temporary condition. Dr. Balshi will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation.
