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.

"Went to Dr. Moradi to treat melasma. Met with Magdalena and she spent one hour talking to me to figure out a possible treatment regimine. She is an expert in melasma. After 2 weeks of the regime my melasma and skin has improved dramatically. I appreciate Magdalena's willingness to listen and ensure I was comfortable with her recommendation. Everyone in the office is friendly. Dr. Moradi is gentle and has excellent bed side manners. I also like his conservative approach on treatments."- D.A. / Yelp / Oct 11, 2018
"Dr Moradi and his staff are the ABSOLUTE BEST THAT THERE IS! I have been Dr. Moradi's patient for about 9 years now and I would not trust my face to anyone else. His experience, knowledge and ability to listen to his patients thoroughly separates him from the rest of the doctors and I trust him completely because of all of these things and more. After 9 years of Dr. Moradi being my one and ONLY doctor, I can without a doubt, tell everyone I know (and do frequently) that Dr. Moradi is THE BEST AT WHAT HE DOES!"- K.L. / Yelp / Oct 10, 2018
"Best in the business - He is so caring and easy to talk to. Most importantly, he is conservative so I know he will not overdo anything!

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.
