Patients looking to transform their appearance without invasive surgery can inquire about Radiesse. Dr. Marguerite Bernett, a Ivrine cosmetic surgeon, uses the injectable filler for moderate to deep folds and wrinkles on the face. Radiesse is used to treat marionette lines (lines that go from the corner of the mouth to the chin) and nasolabial folds (the deep creases from the corner of the nose to the mouth). Radiesse is a water-based gel that contains microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring substance, to add volume immediately to fill in lines and wrinkles. Over time, Radiesse helps the skin increase the natural production of collagen for long-lasting results.

"It is hard to put into words how very happy I am now that I have had the Mommy Makeover. After all of the exercising and dieting I did after my last pregnancy, the loose tummy skin and drooping, smaller breasts and stubborn fat, uhhh so frustrating. So with Dr. Bernett's s t outstanding treatment and very caring manner, I feel like a new person! There is no other way to describe it. I am happy being a mom of course even before the surgery, but now I am so very happy with my improved look : )"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 31, 2015
"I feel like a new person after my Mommy Makeover! I recently was treated by Dr. Bernett, and I couldn't be happier. After my last pregnancy my body changed a lot, not only weight gain, also drooping breast and the loose tummy skin. I did a good amount of exercise and was careful with my diet, but the drooping, and loose skin did not improve much. Plus some areas of fat are just darned stubborn! Now that those trouble areas are lifted and tightened, I truly feel so much better. Dr. Bernett really took care of me and was careful and caring all the way. Everything looks great, and I am feeling so much better !!!"- H.M. / Wellness / May 30, 2015
"I am very happy with the procedures Dr. Bernett did for me. I had a face and neck tightening procedure which removed some fat and tightened my skin. As I am getting older, I also gained a little weight. My cheeks and chin were sagging, and I was getting a double chin. Now, I look ten years younger and feel better, too! I did a laser firming treatment for my entire face and my skin looks really beautiful. Several of my colleagues from work also went to see Dr. Bernett after they saw my results and were very satisfied. She is professional, very thorough and what I really love is that she takes her time and she cares."- M.N. / Yelp / Apr 22, 2015

Good candidates are men or women who demonstrate:
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Moderate to deep marionette lines
- Good skin tone
- Overall good health
What to Expect
During the consultation, we will evaluate the overall health of the skin and assess the amount of wrinkles in the middle and lower third of the face. This evaluation will help us develop an individual plan for the appropriate amount of Radiesse to use during treatment. The goal during the injection treatment is to soften the folds, not obliterate them. Radiesse creates a smooth appearance by filling in wrinkles so that the result is soft and natural. Radiesse typically lasts about 9 - 12 months. Many patients love their results so much that they return and are put on a rotation schedule.
Discomfort with Radiesse treatments is usually minimal. Occasionally, the tiny needle may nick a small blood vessel during the injection and a small bruise may develop. This can last from 5 - 10 days and can require makeup to cover. There is minimal downtime. The results from this treatment are evident immediately.
