Dr. Kesh Nawada’s plastic surgery center in Winter Haven, Florida is proud to offer Radiesse for patients desiring a younger appearance. Radiesse is comprised of a unique mineral called calcium hydroxyapatite, which naturally resides inside the bones and face. Once Radiesse is injected, it immediately works to add volume and stimulate the production of the body's natural collagen for skin that improves over time and results that can last up to a year or more. As the only F.D.A. approved dermal filler comprised of calcium-based microspheres, Radiesse boasts a high standard of safety, offering a natural treatment that produces lasting results. Dr. Nawada often uses Radiesse as a dermal filler for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, creating volume in the cheeks (malar augmentation), and Radiesse is now F.D.A. approved for improving volume loss in the top of the hands. During every patient's initial consultation, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Nawada, will listen carefully to the cosmetic goals of his patients and help them decide if Radiesse or another wrinkle treatment is best for them.

Radiesse can be injected during an office visit in just 30 minutes. Before the procedure, the injection areas will be marked and cleaned. A local anesthetic may be used for additional comfort, however the filler itself is mixed with an anesthetic called Lidocaine. Using a syringe, the surgeon will inject the Radiesse filler into the skin. Following the procedure, patients may feel numb or experience redness near the injection sites, which normally subsides in a short time. There is no downtime, and patients are able to return to work following their appointment.
What to Expect@headingTag>
Patients should notice a difference to their face almost immediately following a Radiesse® injection. However, because the injection ingredient works to produce and stimulate collagen development, results will be longer lasting than some of the other fillers on the market. Patients should expect results that include added volume to the face which will smooth out wrinkle, and typically last up to one year. Patients can repeat this procedure when they feel their results are no longer visible.
The average cost for a syringe of Radiesse is approximately $700-$1,000, and the cost will vary with each case as well as the number of syringes necessary. Our office accepts all major credits cards, as well as checks for payment. In addition, we also have a finance plan for patients who wish to break up the price of their treatment into monthly payments.

What About Other Fillers?@headingTag>
Patients who are considering an injectable filler as part of their cosmetic treatment have a diverse selection of fillers to choose from. Fillers such as Radiesse are considered temporary, even though the results may last up to a full year. Common filler procedures include collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and the heaviest of the fillers, PMMA. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers and evaluate your facial tone, laxity, and volume levels to help you decide which filler may be the best choice.
What Makes Radiesse Different?@headingTag>
Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers due to the natural ability to stimulate collagen production. The results slightly vary from the two types of fillers, and generally patients are more pleased with results from Radiesse.
What About Side Effects?@headingTag>
Patients undergoing Radiesse may have mild redness, bruising, numbness and/or itching that occur following treatment. These are temporary side effects that usually disappear within a day or two.
