At Jon Turk, M.D., Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we are dedicated to providing you with cosmetic treatments and procedures that fit your individual needs. For patients who have stubborn wrinkles and fine lines, but who don't need complex plastic surgery, treatments like the 5-minute volumizer work wonders. Our Manhattan facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Turk, uses Radiesse® to add volume and youthfulness to your face and simulate the effects of a mid-face lift in just minutes.
For our patients in Manhattan, injectables such as Radiesse® treat skin folds, wrinkles, smile lines, and marionette lines. Radiesse® uses calcium hydroxlapatite, a mineral found in the body, to rejuvenate facial features. This natural gel solution plumps your skin's volume and promotes collagen growth, resulting in smoother, softer, younger looking skin.
Beauty in 5 Minutes
There are a number of advantages to choosing Radiesse® 5-minute volumizing treatments, they include:
- Treat your lines and wrinkles in no time at all - visit us on your lunch break!
- Seeing results immediately is a gratifying reminder that this treatment works and leaves your skin looking years younger in only five minutes.
- Promoting the collagen production in your face provides long-lasting results that only continue to improve over time.
- Plumping your cheeks with the Manhattan 5-minute volumizer treatment provides similar results as a mid-face lift, but without the surgery.
How It's Done
Whether the 5-minute volumizer is just the cherry on top of a bigger cosmetic surgery procedure, or if you choose the treatment on its own, it can dramatically improve the appearance of your facial skin. Before coming in for your volumizing treatment, we advise that you don't apply any topical anesthetics and avoid taking ibuprofen or aspirin to reduce bruising. If you are concerned about feeling the injection, we can mix anesthetic into your injectable to make you more comfortable.
The 5-minute volumizing procedure is simple and quick, and involves nothing more than a few quick injections into very specific parts of your facial muscles. By masterfully placing these injections, Dr. Turk can help you achieve the look you want.
After you receive the injection, it's normal to feel some tenderness, see redness, or feel itchy or swollen. These affects should subside completely in a few days. Do not squeeze or massage the injection site for 24 hours to ensure that the Radiesse® gel stays in place. Cold packs applied for 10 to 15 minutes will help reduce swelling and bruising.
Radiesse® injections can last up to two years, but will require maintenance. Ask Dr. Turk about how to organize a manageable routine to ensure that you keep your new, youthful look for years to come.
