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
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing! I love how attentive he is and gives you great advice on what you should get done or shouldn't. I've been to different surgeon offices and I always find myself booking another appointment with his office instead. The ladies at his office are another reason why I keep coming as well, such sweet and friendly ladies. I love how Every time I come they are super welcoming and I don't feel like I'm being judged! I've been to Offices before where I feel like I'm bugging the staff or when I'm asking questions they answer very annoyed. Here! They answer all your questions with concern and very kindly. Thank you Shae & Alex for being great customer service representatives & following up on my appointment reminders! I've had a hydra facial + Vivace done at his office. Which I definitely recommend, I should probably book another hydra-facial while I'm writing this review. Also, I've had my breast done elsewhere but will be contacting Dr. K once I'm ready for new boobies. I'll be referring all my clients, friends, staff, and family to Dr. Kelishadi FIVE STARS FROM ISABELLA"- I.C. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2019

"I initially was drawn to SSK because of a promotion for their hydra facial. I met Shay and Alejandra who helped me understand the benefits of hydra facials. My complimentary hydra facial at their open house promotion was awesome!! I joined the SSK Club and now treat myself to monthly hydra facials at a reduced rate. My skin is glowing! I feel taken care of at SSK, and Shay and Alejandra make sure I feel this way. I've even tried the micro needling technique offered by Dr. Kellishadi which has taken my glow to a new level. Dr. Kellishadi obviously truly cares about his patients because he's interested in what's best for ME and not just what will make his cash flow grow. He said I don't need surgery to look great at my age. I'm 55. Most plastic surgeons would jump on the opportunity to talk a 55-year-old woman into chasing a youthful look through a face lift or some other expensive surgery. He spent the time to talk with me about my life goals and what makes me feel happy and alive, and we BOTH decided that going under the knife isn't what is best for me. I choose to maintain my best look by non-invasive procedures such as hydra facials and micro needling. Dr. Kellishadi cares about my satisfaction and happiness with SSK services despite the fact that I'm the opposite of a "high ticket" client. Because of this, I'm now a loyal customer."- C.S. / Yelp / Apr 19, 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?
