To add lost volume and initiate the body’s production of collagen, Houston, TX double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, regularly administers Radiesse. This FDA-approved injectable wrinkle filler consists of calcium hydroxyapatite, a mineral naturally found in the bones and face. Radiesse works by adding instantaneous volume and initiating collagen which provides support for smoother, tighter skin. Dr. Brissett uses the filler to treat moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds near the mouth and between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). Radiesse is also used to replace age-related volume loss in the cheeks.

"amazing doctor - "if dr. brissett can't fix it, than nobody can"! - I can't even begin to say what an amazing doctor Dr. Brissett is.

After meeting with Dr. Brissett, he expressed his concerns of the condition my nasal passages were in after several failed surgeries, but he also knew how..."- C. / RealSelf / Jul 23, 2018
"All of the comments said about Dr. Brissett are so true and more. I could go on for hours about Dr. Brissett. One very important distinguish criteria having to do with his practice is his staff. Having been married to the medical community I’ve had the opportunity to interact with a wide range medical staff and the staff will many times make or break even the best physicians. Andrea, Regina, Rachel and Roxana are not only personable and knowledgeable but they genuinely care about the patients. I hate to tell you how many years I’ve seen Dr. Brissett but he has almost 0 turn over during the time I have known him and I can totally understand why. Houston does have great doctors but they’re not as accessible/understanding of their patients needs/ etc. if The staff is not good."- M.F. / Google / Jul 19, 2018

What to Expect
Before the treatment, the doctor will determine the appropriate dosage and area(s) to be treated for an individual patient. Radiesse will be injected using a fine needle. Since it’s already mixed with Lidocaine (a numbing agent), additional numbing usually isn’t needed, but can be provided depending on the patient’s preference. A treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete. There’s no downtime associated with Radiesse and patients can immediately return to their normal activities.
After a Radiesse treatment, patients commonly experience a sensation of numbness, redness, mild bruising, or itching. These side effects should subside within a day or two. Immediately after an injection, patients will notice a marked difference with smoother, firmer skin with diminished lines, wrinkles, and folds. Results can last 1 year or more.
