As we grow older the collagen in our skin slows down resulting in sagging skin. When you want small changes to your nose, injectable fillers may be the answer before considering rhinoplasty. Injectable fillers can add fullness to a sagging nose. Radiesse is the first FDA-approved dermal filler. Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) that is found in our bones and can stimulate natural collagen production. Radiesse is a thick injectable gel filler that usually lasts longer than other fillers.
Expert Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty with Dr. Evan Ransom
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical procedure performed during an office visit. Dr. Ransom will meet with you to discuss your medical history, concerns, and goals you have before deciding which treatment is right for you. Many times the results are immediate after receiving Radiesse. Some patients may experience mild swelling and bruising but will subside days after the treatment. Normal activities may be resumed after the treatment. Radiesse is considered one of the longer-lasting fillers. Depending on the individual, Radiesse injections typically last between 12 and 18 months. After this time, the body slowly dissolves the injectable filler.
