Radiesse® Injections

Aging causes changes in your face that can make you look older than you would like. Radiesse® is a facial injectable that can make a difference by filling in areas and adding volume, smoothing out wrinkles and frown lines. It is the perfect solution for many who have moderate to severe nasolabial folds, the lines that form from the outer corners of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth. The marionette lines, which are those that extend from the outer corners of the mouth down either side of the chin to the jaw line, can also be addressed with long-lasting Radiesse.

What is in Radiesse?

The mineral-like substance calcium hydroxyapatite, found in human bone, is a main ingredient in Radiesse. Microspheres of calcium are suspended in a water-based gel that can be injected under the skin. There they provide the structure and support to fill the targeted area. Radiesse also has the ability to stimulate your own cells to produce new collagen. This protein, along with elastin, provides support for the skin. With an adequate amount of collagen and elastin, the skin feels firm and plump.

Advantages of Radiesse

Calcium hydroxyapatite has been used for decades in the fields of dentistry and reconstructive surgery. It has a proven track record of being safe and effective. Because it is one of the heaviest dermal fillers available, Radiesse stays put. Other, lighter fillers can migrate over time, but Radiesse stays in the area where it was injected. It also takes up more space than other fillers, so depending on the targeted area, the results may be better.

Radiesse is biosynthetically reproduced. Unlike some fillers that use animal sources, Radiesse does not, and this means that allergic reactions to the injections are unlikely. Radiesse also has long-lasting results. The filler will usually last a year and possibly longer before another treatment is required.

The downside of Radiesse has to do with its thicker structure. Because of this, injections may be more painful, but anesthetic can minimize the discomfort. Some people may experience more bruising or swelling with injections, but these effects are temporary.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
