San Jose, California (PressExposure) January 25, 2012 -- Radiesse treatment is an ideal alternative to similar non-surgical cosmetic procedures and is made available by the leading practitioners of plastic surgery San Jose and Los Altos, California have to offer.
Drs. Jerome and Tom Liu, two of California's foremost surgeons, offer other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic surgery procedures in addition to Radiesse injections. Liu Plastic Surgery covers all aspects of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine, including the kind of liposuction San Jose patients can count on to be effective.
A product of Merz Aesthetics, Inc., Radiesse contains synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance which naturally occurs in the human body and is one of the primary components of bone. These calcium-based microspheres are suspended in a gel which is later absorbed by the body. Radiesse improves the patient's appearance in two ways. First, the gel plumps up the skin and reduces wrinkles. Next, the microspheres act as a supporting material for the skin and stimulate the natural production of collagen in and around the treated area. The gel provides immediate skin volume restoration while the calcium microspheres ensure Radiesse's long-lasting effects. Radiesse is FDA-approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles - smile lines, laugh lines on the corners of the mouth, sagging in the pre-jowl area, and chin wrinkles.
Radiesse injections are outpatient procedures that cause minimal discomfort and side effects. It requires little to no downtime. Patients can expect to see immediate results and the final results can be visible within one week. Collagen synthesis has been shown to occur up to one and a half years after treatment. Besides Radiesse treatment, Liu Plastic Surgery also offers other procedures including the liposuction San Jose patients opt to undergo and more.
