Radiesse, is an FDA-approved treatment used to correct deep facial wrinkles and folds. ACCENTS medical director and leading cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mark Berkowitz enthusiastically embraces this next-generation technology for its long-term cosmetic benefit and high patient appreciation with little risk. Radiesse uniquely restores volume and promotes the growth of the body's own collagen without surgery, downtime or the risks of permanent implants.
Dr. Berkowitz explains, "Radiesse raises the bar for the treatment of nasolabial folds, delivering safe and effective enhancement that stimulates new tissue growth and collagen deposition. This clinical response rebuilds the skin's foundation so that wrinkles or folds
treated with Radiesse maintain the aesthetic correction over the long term. Overall, Radiesse is a worthwhile investment that meets our patients' demands, and often exceeds their expectations with high satisfaction."
Designed with safety, durability and longevity in mind, Radiesse is composed of micron-sized calcium-based particles in a water-based gel carrier that form a scaffold around which the body generates new collagen. According to Dr. Berkowitz, this unique mechanism of action is responsible for tissue anchoring as well as preserving the augmentation. The filler is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very tiny needle and is particularly well suited for treatment of the wrinkles between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) and other facial aesthetic applications.
"Radiesse is a better choice for patients who are ready for instant results from a quick, in-office treatment that keeps them looking better even longer. Treatment typically produces immediate cosmetic improvement with results that last an average of one year or more, which is considerably longer than the former leading filler," says Dr. Berkowitz. "Patients today lead busy, active lives so they want a treatment that offers excellent results without a lot of effort, downtime or need for repeat injections."
In addition to correction of deep facial creases, Dr. Berkowitz loves to enhance the cheeks with Radiesse. He uses an innovative technique that tends to be quite comfortable for his patients and leaves no tell-tale signs of injection - like bruising! By enhancing the cheeks, nasolabial creases appear softer and far less pronounced and the jaw line appears more defined.
Dr. Mark Berkowitz has successfully performed cosmetic injections for more than 10 years, including hundreds of dermal filler injections. In addition to these in-office services, Dr. Berkowitz (best known for advanced laser eyelid rejuvenation) also performs many surgical cosmetic-enhancing procedures for the face.
