Our new HD-Sculpt℠ with Radiesse is popular with clients of any age who would like supermodel cheekbones, a more chiseled look, or just more clearly-defined features. It is an excellent treatment to restore volume to the mid-face for both men and women. The cameras just love youthful, defined features!
HD-Sculpt is the name of a procedure used here at Shino Bay Cosmetic Dermatology designed for patients who are looking for rejuvenation and revolumization of the face while giving them a more defined and more chiseled look. The procedure is great for men and women looking for those supermodel cheekbones and jawlines.
For this method, we use Radiesse (or calcium hydroxylapatite) which is a naturally occurring product composed of calcium and phosphorus. The material is injected deep along the cheekbones and jawline. Its effects are instantaneous, so patients are be able to appreciate the difference in their faces right away. Radiesse is also long-lasting. It stimulates new collagen formation over time so that its effects can last anywhere between 9 and 18 months. This collagen mimics the volume of the shrunken facial fat pads, thus lifting the overlying tissue and giving a more youthful appearance.
(Side effects are few and include swelling and redness in the injected area for a few days. Bruising can occur but is rare. Overall this procedure is very well tolerated.)
