LA Laser Center offers Radiesse for individuals who want to add volume to hollow areas of their face. The experienced dermatologists at LA Laser Center have extensive experience using Radiesse to give patients a more youthful look.

Some of the benefits of Radiesse are that it is minimally invasive and is long-lasting. The main ingredient is calcium hydroxylapatite, which is safe and in most cases non-allergy inducing. Radiesse is especially effective when used for filling in of laugh lines, perioral lines, oral commissures and depressed scars. Click here for a full list of the areas Radiesse can be used to treat.

Radiesse is meant for men or women who are unhappy with any lines on the face that have come from age. Over time, wrinkles accumulate around the mouth from smiling, laughing and talking. These lines can be filled in effectively with Radiesse injections performed by a licensed dermatologist at LA Laser Center.

Radiesse is also an ideal treatment for individuals with unwanted facial scars. The experienced dermatologists at LA Laser Center have helped many patients gain self-esteem by filling in the depressed scars that have caused them distress or discomfort.

Radiesse is a painless procedure performed by a board-certified dermatologist by injection. Prior to injecting the treatment area, the dermatologist will apply a topical anesthetic to the area. A typical procedure will take no longer than 15 minutes; patients can even come in on their lunch break for a rejuvenation treatment. Patients can expect some slight swelling or bruising for about a day after the procedure, but it should in no way interfere with their everyday activities.
