Most facial fillers can mimic collagen, creating more volume in the skin as collagen dissipates with age. Radiesse® replaces lost volume in the skin, but it also stimulates the production of natural collagen. For adding volume to the jawline or reducing the appearance of wrinkles, Radiesse injections offer lasting results. Our team at HMS Plastic Surgery performs wrinkle reduction and facial contouring with Radiesse injections at our center in Miami, FL.

Many dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to collect moisture within the skin. Radiesse uses microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that is found in bones and teeth. The microspheres will provide immediate volume to smooth lines and wrinkles or add contours to the cheek area. The effects of Radiesse injections can last for up to a year, but the collagen induction effect may last longer.

Collagen Induction for Wrinkle Treatment

When Radiesse calcium microspheres are injected into the skin, the body begins breaking down the mineral. Eventually the calcium is absorbed, but the presence of the microspheres stimulates the production of collagen. The injected areas have an increase of natural collagen produced, adding improved volume and elasticity to the skin. Even when the calcium is gone, the effects of more collagen production can help the skin and face look younger for a year or longer.

Radiesse injections are generally used for nasolabial folds and jawline definition in the face. Radiesse is also FDA-approved for treatment of aging hands. The injections can help minimize the appearance of tendons and veins in the hands by increasing volume and collagen. The treatment can be performed in a quick office visit, usually less than a half an hour. There are minimal side effects reported, usually swelling, itching or tenderness from the injections in the treated area.

If you want to reduce wrinkles or lines in your midface or rejuvenate your hand appearance, Radiesse injections may be right for you.

My oncologist recommended Dr. Salinas for my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction and I couldn’t be more grateful. He is not only an excellent professional but also a very kind human being.

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
