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.

"Really Listens to you - Always personal and authentic. Listens to your requests (and sometimes fear). From the moment you walk into your treatment room you are greeted by Veronica who seems to quell your anxiety and when Dr. Moradi comes in, you know you are in excellent hands."- M. / RealSelf / Apr 05, 2018
"The BEST in the biz!!! - I absolutely feel like I’m aging gracefully with the help of this amazing man and his staff. Initially, I was referred to Dr. Moradi from another cosmetic MD and later referred to him by an acquaintance of mine. I respect Dr. Moradi so much for his conservative and honest approach. He consults and thoroughly evaluates your needs while discussing the options. Less is more with him. I love it w..."- K. / RealSelf / Mar 29, 2018
"I always know I'm in the best of hands (literally) when I see Dr. Moradi. My experience, and results, are spot on every single time I go in for my treatments. He is kind and always makes me feel I'm the most important patient he has. His assistant Veronica completes the perfect team to always take the time to make me feel comfortable and welcome. I know I can call her anytime with questions. I trust them both completely."- L.S. / Yelp / Mar 26, 2018
"Amazing doctor and staff A+++ - I have been going to Dr. Moradi for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier with my results. He is excellent and he will not “over-do” any procedure, he is very honest and if you don’t need it, he won’t do it, I really appreciate that. Additionally, Veronica is amazing and is always available for questions or concerns. All of the staff is great, I have gone other places in the past, but..."- B. / RealSelf / Mar 14, 2018
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.
