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.

"Thank you Dr. Brissett and team for your amazing work! - Dr. Brissett is the BEST Facial Plastic Surgeon around!! I had a previous consultation with a different DR and was misdiagnosed and told my bump was a dermiod cyst and I’d have to have it cut out over the cyst which could leave a scar on my face. I decided to visit Dr. Brissett for a second opinion I’m so glad I did. Not only was it not a dermiod cyst but the procedure could be done at the hai..."- C. / RealSelf / Feb 24, 2019

"Dr. Brissett Goes Above and Beyond in Making You Feel Comfortable! - I’m a female in college and woke up one morning with a hemangioma on my lip/chin. It was not the most pleasant thing to look at and was advised that it was best to get it removed. Finding the right surgeon was very important to me.

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.
