Radiesse® in Chicago and Arlington Heights, IL
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis serves residents of Chicago, Arlington Heights, and surrounding communities who desire skin rejuvenation and the minimization of signs of aging. Radiesse® is one of the many dermal filler and injectable options available to meet your specific needs.
What is Radiesse®?
Over time, the natural collagen that supports youthful, smooth skin breaks down, leaving us with less voluptuous, sagging skin. The results of which are wrinkles, facial lines and an overall loss of elasticity. Radiesse® is an allergy-free biocompatible and non-toxic skin rejuvenation option for combating these common signs of aging around the mouth and chin. Radiesse® not only smooths wrinkles but also stimulates collagen production, so your skin gains back more of its tone and tightness naturally. Radiesse® can be used to reduce or minimize the following problem areas:
- Heavy smile lines
- Oral commissure
- Pre-jowl (chin lines starting to sag)
- Lines running from the corner of your mouth to your chin (sometimes called marionette lines)
How it Works
Radiesse® gives additional structure to the skin. The gel encourages the natural growth of collagen, a natural skin volumizer, to smooth out creases. Radiesse® works with the body to produce more aesthetically appealing skin and appearance. As a thicker dermal filler, Radiesse® is best used for lines in the cheeks.
Candidates for Radiesse® Treatment
Good candidates for Radiesse® include those with a dissatisfaction of how their mouth is surrounded by lines or individuals with scarring and depressions around the mouth or chin. Radiesse® dermal filler is made of a synthetic substance of calcium hydroxylapatite with no allergic reactions associated with it, so it is safe for even those with many allergies. Radiesse® is also safe and effective for candidates of any skin tone, between the ages of 35 to 60 with realistic expectations of how Radiesse® may temporarily treat these common signs of aging.
With age, skin volume can deplete, leaving folds and creases in the face. Radiesse®, offered by Dr. Kotis in Chicago, adds volume to smooth out those folds and creases. After Radiesse® patients can re-experience a voluptuous complexion. To smooth nasolabial folds or creases around the nose and mouth, Radiesse® is injected beneath the skin. Dr. Kotis determines suitable placement for these injections according to each patient’s desires. Patients experience a smoother complexion with more volume after one treatment with Radiesse®.
Radiesse® is a non-invasive option that requires little to no recovery. Immediately after their treatment, patients may leave the office. Redness, swelling and bruising may occur near the injection sites. symptoms, if any, subside in a few days. The effects of Radiesse® lasts anywhere between nine months to a year. Interested patients are encouraged to schedule their Radiesse® appointment at Dr. Kotis’s Chicago practice.
