These days, there are several injectable dermal fillers on the market for you to choose from for facial rejuvenation. The Radiesse dermal filler offered by Scottsdale, AZ plastic surgeon Dr. James Nachbar is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and for reversing age-related volume loss in the hands. Patients who might not have a lot of time for repeat touch-ups prefer the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the look of your skin with a minimally invasive treatment. Radiesse has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to effectively and safely contour your facial features. It can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a personalized procedure plan that restores your skin. Look younger and boost your confidence with Radiesse dermal fillers at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ.
Adults who are in good health and concerned about mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best candidates for Radiesse injectable treatments. It can address smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines in the sides of the mouth. Radiesse is also approved to correct age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look smoother and younger looking. You should not have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell Dr. Nachbar about any allergies (severe or not) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.
"Been to this office before and the staff is wonderful. The doctor is great and I love his work."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Apr 26, 2018
"I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Nachbar and his staff. Since his staff were my first and last points of contact, I'll start with them. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. I flew in from out of state for tattoo excision. From the initial contact to walking out the door following my surgical follow-up the day after the procedure, they were kind, polite and accommodating. The smiles and kindness don't feel put on or forced -- his staff seem to be genuinely happy, nice people. Dr. Nachbar was very polite and extremely good at what he did. He gave me a great explanation of what he would do and he was able to exceed my expectations. I had minimal post-surgical pain -- I have actually managed my pain with OTC pain relievers, although he did give me a prescription. Dr. Nachbar was very respectful and treated his staff in a respectful fashion as well. I was very happy with the treatment I received and I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar. I legitimately wish I had known of him and seen him first for excision tattoo removal before spending $2K on laser treatments that had no measurable affect."- E.J. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"It's been 7yrs and my surgery results are still amazing. I get a text from Dr. Nachbar's office every year checking in with me. I can't recommend them highly enough. After my experience there my friend also went in and had a procedure and is extremely happy with her results as well."- D.A. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"Tummy Tuck - The overall care, skill and follow up by Dr. Nachbar and his staff were outstanding. The same can be said about Greenbaum Surgery Center who did an excellent job.My surgery was done in the morning approx 8:30 a.m and by 5:00 pm I felt very confident that the final result will be great. Dr. Nachbar visited me that night which was very comforting. He's compassionate and highly skillful at his profession."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Sep 06, 2018

Radiesse dermal injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery in about 30 – 60 minutes after the consultation. To begin the treatment, you will sit comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel mild discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick, but if requested, a numbing cream can be used on the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, chosen at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will help guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the face. Once the procedure is finished, a cold compress may be applied to help minimize swelling and bruising.
What to Expect
After your Radiesse treatment, you may see slight redness, bruising, and swelling. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be covered with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Scottsdale Plastic Surgery. Most patients see some results right away with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and more radiant. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. You should talk to Dr. James Nachbar during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
