Women and men who are in good general health and want to correct their mild to moderate wrinkles and lines are ideal patients for Radiesse treatments. It can improve marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the edges of the lips. Radiesse is also designed to treat volume that is often lost with age in the hands to help them appear fuller and more youthful. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in Radiesse. Be sure to talk to Dr. Lee 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.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"Did an amazing job! I went in for fillers while I friend went to get a mole removal. Not going to lie I did have a lot of swelling which freaked me out but after about a week there was no more swelling and after the first few weeks everything just balanced so beautifully. You can't tell that I've had anything done and my face looks a lot more symmetrical than it did before. My face looks more youthful and I love it! My friends mole removal went great for him. He says he can't even notice a scar! Ill definitely be a repeat customer!"- B.L. / Yelp / Jun 08, 2019
"I’m a work in progress for Dr Lee. I had face and neck surgery a week ago. Im no young lady but I feel I did really good. I was counseled about expectations and feel so far that my results have been amazing! Dr Lee is extremely professional and gave me the feeling that he sincerely cares about me, my feelings, and my needs! So refreshing to see a physician that cares and wants the best for me!! As for this transformation, I’m sure when I heal you will see photos! His assistant Eva is just as amazing too. I highly recommend Nuveau and Dr Lee!"- T.S. / Google / Jun 08, 2019

Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Nuveau Plastic Surgery in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick of the needle, but if preferred, a local anesthetic may be spread on the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, determined during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the treatment is done, a compress will be held to the treated areas to reduce bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild redness, bruising, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Nuveau Plastic Surgery. Many patients have visible results minutes after the treatment with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and lifted. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers, with improvements for about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Edward Lee at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
