Unfortunately for many, smile lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds can make you look older then you actually are. Radiesse is a cosmetic dermal filler that is great for mild to moderate facials wrinkles around the nose and mouth. At SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, we want all our clients to look as young as they feel. Since Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite gel the results are long-lasting and work to stimulate the body's natural production of collagen. Unlike other dermal fillers, Radiesse has been known to last 1 – 2 years. The formula can soften your skin and restore volume without the time and expense of invasive surgery. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi is thrilled to offer Radiesse to help you achieve the look you desire.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"Had my BA done by Dr. Kelishadi over three months ago. Oh my, one of the BEST decisions I’ve made in my life! I didn’t just come across a good surgeon like Dr. K by chance, I did lots of research and homework. For those who are still searching for the right Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kelishadi IS the one. He takes his time with you, understands your needs and wants, explains everything you will and might experience so there are no surprises, and more importantly he and his staff Alejandra and Shay are always so helpful and responsive to all questions you have. My entire surgery and recovery process was also made so easy and pleasant because of Dr. K., his entire team and his special recovery protocol! I am very happy with the results and am loving them!"- W.C. / Google / Apr 11, 2019

"I am overjoyed with excitement. I can't even begin to explain the happiness I have . I want to just give the biggest thank you to Dr. Kelishadi . He is an amazing doctor and a great human being. I have to express how touched I am to have been blessed with such an experienced, humble, caring person . Doctor K not only is a great person but the professionalism he brings to his practice is above and beyond. I am thrilled with how my Tear Through came out ! I had such tired looking eyes and I left the office with restful, rejuvenated younger eyes . I was so nervous not knowing what to expect but he just brings such comfort and confidence with him and takes away all of your anxieties just knowing you are in good hands . Thank you also to Alejandra and Shea for both of you ladies for brightening up the room with your loving smiles and cheerful demeanor. SSK thank you so much for making such a difference:)"- L.F. / Yelp / Apr 01, 2019
"Dr. Kelishadi is a rock star! I feel very blessed to have found such a great doc to do my surgery. His team, both Shea and Alejandra, are super nice and help you throughout the process. I would definitely go see Dr K again. This was my first ever surgery and I was so so happy. I'd give him 100 stars if I could."- K.G. / Yelp / Mar 27, 2019
Men and women who have good health and skin tone are great candidates for this cosmetic injectable. You should not have Radiesse injections if you are allergic to lidocaine, or any of the other ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell us about any allergies (severe or not), or if you have a history of any bleeding disorder. If you are a woman and are breast feeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse. The best candidates for this procedure have deep lines that reside within the smile lines, marionette lines, the corners of the mouth, the sides of the chin, and/or chin wrinkles.
Radiesse injections take place within our office. The process is very simple. We will prep your face, mark your injection spots, administer the product, and have you on your way. First, you will be seated comfortably in our treatment room and the areas of injection will be cleansed and marked. A numbing agent will be applied and left to sit for a few minutes so that the injections are not uncomfortable. The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. We will mark your face with a washable marker for precision before injecting the medication. After the injections are complete, we will apply a cold compress to help alleviate swelling or bruising.
What to Expect
You may see some slight swelling, redness, and possible bruising after your injections. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. In most cases, if bruising does linger longer, it can be concealed with makeup. If the side effects last longer, or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call our office, especially if it lasts longer than 10 days. The great thing about this injectable, is that within a few minutes, you will see results in your facial appearance that appear younger, softer, and provide a natural glow. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers on the market.
This exceptional product may last 1 – 2 years, however, some patients do schedule their appointments earlier to refresh their results. Why wait to look continuously younger and gorgeous?
