"Dr Staci Hix-Hernandez has provided me the best care when I needed revision surgery for my body’s rare reaction to all kinds of sutures from past procedures. Her sheer grit and determination and perfectionism to find the right solution make her the best I her field . She and her team truly care to get it right, and won’t stop until they do - no matter how stubborn my body has been. I love my results! Thank you Staci!"- K.C. / Google / Nov 15, 2022
"I got a panniculectomy a few weeks ago from Dr. Hix. She is friendly, great at communication, honest, caring and compassionate. . My first meeting was with Dusky and she was simply amazing and informative. So on the day of surgery I was nervous, but everyone was very calming and made it one of the easiest procedures I have ever had done. When I had issues with some drainage they called me back quick with solutions and advice. My only regret is waiting 10 years to have this done after I lost 125 lbs. I feels so confident and proud of myself now. I love this team and would trust them anything else I decide to do. Love y’all so much for changing my life!"- D.G. / Google / Nov 02, 2022
"I just came from there as a soon to be new patient, after my first consultation. I'll admit, I was slightly judgmental walking in, seeing gorgeous women on cosmetic packaging, skincare products and advertising for hair removal and beauty treatments. I thought these women were probably shallow, and I was probably in the wrong place. Well, I was wrong. Every person I met was kind, courteous, and genuine and I am so glad I came here and kept an open mind. These ladies really care about you, what they do, and WHO YOU ARE! It was so clear they want me to be the best version of myself, and that is why they want the outside to be as beautiful as the inside. What beautiful people work within this place!"- M.M. / Google / Nov 02, 2022
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that is composed of tiny microspheres. These microspheres are made of synthetic material called calcium hydroxylapatite, which is combined with a common hydrogel. Once injected, Radiesse works with your body below the skin’s surface. The hydrogel acts as a carrier to deliver the microspheres and holds them in place. The calcium particles left behind creates a scaffold for you tissue to build around.
Radiesse can be used for smoothing and contouring smiles lines and nasolabial folds. It can also be used for contouring of the cheeks, chin or jawline. Typically, Radiesse secondary benefit is decreasing the signs of aging.
Who is a candidate for radiesse?
Women and men who are in good overall health and concerned about mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are the best candidates for RADIESSE treatments. It can address marionette lines, smile lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines in the sides of the lips. RADIESSE is also approved to address age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look softer and younger looking. You shouldn't have this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell Dr. Hix-Hernandez about any allergies (severe or not) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you should not get RADIESSE treatments.
When Will I See Results?
The results for Radiesse injections can be relatively instant, but the best results may take 2 weeks. You may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising immediately following your Radiesse treatment. This should subside within 24-48 hours.
Radiesse is offered at our Cedar Park, Round Rock, and Austin locations. Call our offices, or email [email protected] today to book your complimentary consultation to know if Radiesse is right for you.
How much does RADIESSE cost?
Your cost for a RADIESSE treatment is dependent on the amount used to match your desired outcome. In your consultation at Beleza Surgery, your injector will ask about your needs and wants so they can develop your personalized treatment plan. Then, they can discuss the costs of your treatment.
How does RADIESSE compare to other fillers?
Injectable wrinkle fillers all have unique properties and formulas to fit various issues. Common filler ingredients include HA (hyaluronic acid), calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa), poly-L-lactic acid, and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). RADIESSE is made with calcium-based microspheres, which are similar to HA injectable fillers due to the natural ability to increase the natural production of collagen. During your initial consult, your injector will discuss the various dermal filler brands and assess your facial tone and volume to determine which one is correct for you.
Are RADIESSE injections painful?
Usually, patients don't need any form of numbing prior to their treatments. However, a local anesthetic is available to make you feel more comfortable. Most patients only experience minor and brief discomfort when the needle pierces the skin.
What are the side effects of RADIESSE?
RADIESSE treatments have a low risk of serious side effects when performed by a skilled injector, like our team at Beleza Surgery. In your initial consultation, tell your injector about medications you take and any known allergies to avoid a reaction. Right after your injection, you may develop mild redness, bruising, numbness, or itching. These side effects are temporary and usually fade within a few days.
What other procedures can I combine with RADIESSE?
RADIESSE injections may be done in combination with other injectables for a liquid facelift to help achieve your ideal results. Some patients use dermal fillers, like RADIESSE, along with BOTOX or another wrinkle relaxer to produce more dramatic improvements. Speak to your injector before your treatment to learn more about procedures that complement the results of RADIESSE injections.
