There are many injectable dermal fillers available for you to consider when trying to turn back the hands of time. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle filler offered by Huntington, NY plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev, is wonderful for mild to moderate wrinkles and lines on the face, and for correcting volume loss in the hands. Men and women who don't have time for frequent visits love the lasting results (over a year in many cases) of Radiesse. With microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a flexible gel, Radiesse fills and smoothes the appearance of your face without an invasive surgery. Radiesse is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to safely contour your face. Radiesse may be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) for a custom procedure to rejuvenate your appearance. Look several years younger and raise your self-image with Radiesse injectable wrinkle fillers at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY.
What do your hands say about you? The hands can give away your age and just like the face, can be addressed with an injectable filler such as Radiesse. Many people are self-conscious of the top appearance of their hands, and wonder how to get rid of hand wrinkles and restore volume to an area of the body that is so noticeable. Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery uses Radiesse, the only dermal filler proven to restore lost volume back to the hands, for men and women seeking hand rejuvenation. With a Radiesse injection to the hand, the surface of the hand can appear softer and fuller, with a significant reduction in the visibility of tendons and veins that often result due to sun damage and age. Our patients love the results of Radiesse hand rejuvenation and feel more confident at work or play with this nonsurgical cosmetic improvement.
Ideal Candidates for Radiesse®
Men and women who are in good health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are great patients for Radiesse treatments. It can treat marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the corners of the lips. Radiesse is also safe to address volume that is often lost with age in the hands to make them softer and more youthful.
You shouldn't receive a Radiesse treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in Radiesse. Be sure to let us know if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't get Radiesse injections.
"I have seen Dr. Layliev for a few things. I had a suspicious lesion on my ear that he excised. Thank good it was benign! I have been to him for injectables. He does a fantastic job. My cheeks haven’t looked this good since I was 20. Even though I’m not ready for any surgical procedures. I have friends that have had procedures with him. The results are sensational. I would highly recommend this fantastic surgeon with wonderful bedside manners!"- C.K. / Google / Aug 30, 2018

Procedure Technique for Radiesse®
Radiesse injections are performed in a treatment room at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. First, you will be seated in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel only mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick of the needle, but if needed, a numbing agent will be applied to the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, selected during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the skin. After the treatment is complete, a cold compress can be held to the treated areas to alleviate bruising and swelling.
What to Expect from Radiesse®
Following your treatment, you may have some redness, bruising, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be concealed with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery. Many patients have visible results immediately with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and have a natural glow. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers, with improvements for around 1 – 2 years. You can talk to our cosmetic team at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
