Most of us are familiar with the importance of collagen. Healthy, young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance.
Treatment with Radiesse wrinkle filler can bring back your own natural collagen and restore facial volume, with results that may last a year or more in many patients.
What is Radiesse
Radiesse wrinkle filler is an injectable implant composed of synthetically produced smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres (diameter of 25µm to 45µm) suspended in a sodium carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier. RADIESSE wrinkle filler is approximately 30 percent CaHA and 70 percent gel carrier by volume.
Radiesse wrinkle filler is injected into the skin in a minimally invasive procedure. Radiesse is FDA approved to be mixed with lidocaine in order to reduce discomfort or pain with the procedure. Injection of the product provides an immediate one-to-one correction of the face wrinkle. The amount of filling or augmentation can be easily placed and controlled for better results. There is no skin sensitivity testing or reconstitution required.
Over time, the gel is absorbed, and fibroblasts appear. Neocollagenesis (the production process of new collagen) begins, stimulating the gradual growth of your own collagen. The collagen that forms results in extended correction times and increased patient satisfaction.

In September 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time in my life. Because of treatment I had received 23 years prior, I chose to undergo a double mastectomy with reconstruction. I did some research and visited a couple of surgeons in Lincoln; I actually made an appointment for surgery with one of them. I was also referred to Dr. Cassidy Mitchell. After speaking to him on the phone and meeting with him, I chose to change doctors and have Dr. Mitchell help me with this challenge. Dr. Mitchell was new to Lincoln then, but I felt very confident about how he was approaching my surgery and about his compassion towards me as a woman and patient facing a very difficult surgery. I have never regretted that decision. I am very happy with the results, but most of all, Dr. Mitchell approached the choices, surgery, recovery and reconstruction in a way that made me feel comforted, confident and as though I was in charge. That was important to me at a time when women often feel like their lives have gone completely out of control. I highly recommend him as a surgeon. His work is impeccable. I also have to say my general surgeon, Dr. Carolyn Cody, and the nursing staff at Bryan West Campus was also incredibly supportive. What a team. I am blessed. I’m cancer free, making music with my husband, and moving on with life. Thanks to all of you at Bryan. Thanks, Dr. Mitchell for helping me, for sharing your talent, and treating me with kindness. I’ll never forget it.
