Radiesse® in Manhattan, NYC

What Is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler injected into the skin. It adds immediate plumpness and volume to the skin while smoothing out wrinkles and creases. Radiesse® stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, helping treat deep facial wrinkles and folds – particularly around the nose and mouth.

Preparing for Radiesse®
You should not take medications that can prolong bleeding, including over-the-counter medicines such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (Advil, Motrin, and Aleve). In addition, you should not take vitamin E supplements, fish oil or Omega 3 acids for a week prior to your Radiesse® treatment as these may increase bleeding and bruising.
You may feel some discomfort or tenderness at the injection site, but Radiesse® requires no special recovery or time off from work. The full effects of the injection can take up to a few weeks to develop, but many patients notice a difference right away. After treatment, you should avoid significant movement of the area and avoid applying makeup or being exposed to the sun or heat.
Is Radiesse® Right for Me?
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under the age of 18, you should not use Radiesse®. In addition, people with allergies to any component or ingredient in Radiesse® should not undergo treatments. If you have a history of herpes, you may experience an outbreak after recovering from a Radiesse® injection.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
Costs for your Radiesse® treatment will vary depending on the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
