Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi uses Radiesse to dramatically improve aged skin. Radiesse is a filler that is comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. This naturally occurring substance is typically found within the bones and teeth. Dr. Moradi will administer this injection into areas that need extra volume and wrinkle reduction, typically in the cheeks or around the mouth. As Radiesse is an ideal method for adding fullness and facial contouring, it is a very popular treatment at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA. It is also a dermal filler that simultaneously encourages collagen production, which allows its effects to last up to one year.
Radiesse is a quick procedure normally completed within 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The face will be thoroughly cleansed and then marked with ink so that the practitioner can conduct the injections with precision. A numbing cream is usually applied before the injection occurs. The gel is delivered using a fine needle into pockets just underneath the skin until the right volume is achieved.

Because of her attention to detail, personable personality, and knowledge in her field as an aesthetician, i am now receiving routine facials - love them and her! A shout out to Becca as well, who provides laser resurfacing procedures. She is also very knowledgeable, passionate about her work, and very personable.

What to Expect
After treatment, there may be redness, swelling and even bruising around the injection sites, but these go away after several hours. Patients will be able to resume their normal routine; although strenuous exercise should be limited for the first 24 hours. Patients will see their results immediately, and the results will continue to improve because Radiesse stimulates natural collagen growth, which is an agent for healthy skin.
