Radiesse in Long Island, NY
Collagen is important for young, healthy skin, but we lose collagen as we age. Radiesse® is an anti-aging treatment that restores collagen levels to soften lines and wrinkles. For men and women in Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York, Eunice E. Park, MD, a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon and ear, nose, and throat (otolaryngology) specialist, offers Radiesse® treatments at our medical spa.
What is Radiesse®?
Aging takes a toll on your skin, and understanding why helps you choose a cosmetic treatment that is right for you. Young skin has an abundance of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin, each of which plays a unique role. Collagen is the supportive structure of the skin, so as you lose it, the skin collapses inward. Radiesse® injections contain collagen to replenish the levels and fill in lines and wrinkles.

In addition to restoring collagen levels, Radiesse® has other benefits that you may find appealing.
- No downtime

What to Expect from Radiesse®
Your Radiesse® treatments are minimally invasive, which means that a needle is used to inject the product into the skin. Dr. Park will make several injections in the treatment area to carefully sculpt the desired effect. After the treatment, you may see some improvement due to the gel consistency of the product. As the collagen continues to work with your skin, you will see a gradual improvement. Pinpoint bleeding, bruising, tenderness and swelling may occur around each injection site and last up to three days. The results of your Radiesse® treatments may last nine to 15 months.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost in Long Island, NY?
The cost of Radiesse® treatments varies by patient, and we can provide an accurate estimate after your consultation. The cost is based upon the amount of product and number of injections that are needed for your cosmetic goals. For your convenience, we accept payment by cash, check and major credit card.
