WHAT IS RADIESSE?
These days, there are several injectable treatments on the market for you to consider for facial rejuvenation. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle formula offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino is wonderful for the purpose of addressing mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, as well as for correcting age-related volume loss in the hands. Women and men who might not have time for repeated touch-ups love the lasting results of Radiesse. Using microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a water-based gel, Radiesse fills and smoothes the look of your face without invasive surgery. Radiesse is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely and effectively contour your facial features. It can be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) for a personalized procedure plan that restores your skin. Look younger and boost your self-image with Radiesse dermal fillers at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Doylestown, PA.
"After consultations with many plastic surgeons, Dr. Tamburino was by far the most knowledgeable and detailed. I’m so thankful I found him and I would recommend him over and over. Not to mention his staff is so welcoming and incredibly helpful. If you are thinking about a surgery/cosmetics this is the GUY to go to. Can’t say enough good things!"- M.M. / Google / Feb 05, 2021
"I was very reluctant to get a face/neck lift. I thought about it for a few years and it was seeing myself on video calls day after day that sealed the deal for me. I had heard from a friend that Dr. Tamburrino was an excellent plastic surgeon and decided that I would suck up the drive from South Jersey to Doylestown based on the recommendation. I am so glad I did! My neck and face have been restored to a much more youthful look and amazingly there are no tell tale signs of surgery. I feel a whole lot better about myself and my family and friends are very complimentary (and I think a few of them are now considering surgery for themselves). Dr. Tamburrino is a thorough , knowledgeable and accomplished surgeon who I put complete trust in and I'm forever glad I did!"- G.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 29, 2021
"The decision I made to put myself first and go see Dr. Tamburinno changed my life in the best way possible.

I have recommended him to many close friends and will continue to do so!! Lindsay Curtis"- L.C. / Google / Jan 29, 2021
"Dr. Tamburrino changed my life. After two failed breast implant surgeries after a double mastectomy, Dr. Tamburrino created beautiful breast and nipples that look amazing. He gave me back my life. I owe him everything and recommend him to anyone who needs reconstruction. And on top of that he has an amazing personality, I received amazing care. "- M.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 21, 2021
"Dr Tamburino is exactly who you hope for when faced with a difficult breast cancer surgery! He is a highly skilled surgeon, who is also caring and honest. He will tell you exactly what you need to know (though not always what you might want to hear) to get you through the long haul of surgery and reconstruction. I have had breast cancer with a bilateral mastectomy, chemo, radiation & expanders for reconstruction and have been going to Dr T for over a year. I feel now that he is the only plastic surgeon who was able to get me through my complicated journey. He always had my best interests at heart. I would recommend him to all my family and friends!"- M.D. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
WHO CAN GET RADIESSE?
Adults who are in good overall health and want to correct their mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best candidates for Radiesse treatments. It can address smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and lines that form in the edges of the lips. Radiesse is also designed to treat age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look fuller and more youthful. You shouldn't have this treatment if you are allergic to lidocaine or any other ingredients contained in Radiesse. Be sure to tell Dr. Tamburrino if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, might be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within several years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.
HOW DOES RADIESSE WORK?
Radiesse injections are performed in one of the treatment rooms at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in about 30 – 60 minutes after your one-on-one consultation. First, you will sit comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout their procedure at the initial prick, but if requested, a numbing agent will be applied to the injection sites. The Radiesse dose, determined at your personalized treatment planning session, will be placed in a fine syringe. The pre-marked injection sites will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the procedure is complete, a compress can be applied to alleviate bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
After your Radiesse injection, you may have mild swelling, bruising, and redness. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects may typically be covered with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer or seems excessive, please contact Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. Most patients have some results minutes after the treatment with better results developing in a month or so. Your face will appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Radiesse typically lasts longer than some of the other fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. You can ask Dr. Tamburrino during your appointment about the best time to attend a follow-up session to touch up your results.
