The best gift sometimes comes in small packages. So it is with the latest injectable filler that smoothes irregular nose contours, visually straightens crooked noses, hides a bump and builds a flat nose bridge.
Irvine, Ca. Board Certified Dermatologist Nissan Pilest has won the prestigious Black Card Expert Physician Award from Radiesse maker Bioform Medical for 2007. "I'm honored," said Dr. Pilest of his being selected. "Radiesse is such a versatile product, it has an application to a large number of my patients who desire a dermal filler."
One of the favorite patient quick fixes for Radiesse is in the correction of nose contouring. Dr. Pilest uses a tiny amount of the long-term dermal filler Radiesse to touch up a less-than-perfect nose. "Usually all it takes is a mini-syringe of Radiesse to make a major change in the visual appearance of the nose. A pinched nose can be balanced with injections on the sides, a bump can be smoothed away by adding a touch of product above or below the bump to produce a smooth contour," says Dr. Pilest.
"The nice thing with the Radiesse is that these corrections will last a long time and they feel and look completely natural with no risk of scarring or long term post surgical swelling. Of course some issues can't be corrected with a filler, but those people who have fairly simple correction needs are absolutely thrilled with what it can do. You could almost refer to these procedures as being a nose job with a syringe."
As one of an elite core of physician trainers for Radiesse maker Bioform Medical, Dr. Pilest has unsurpassed injection experience in all applications of the filler. Radiesse is a multi-use product that is being used for deep facial folds, cheek augmentation, chin augmentation, filling of the pre-jowl area and rejuvenation of aging hands in addition to the many corrections possible to approve the appearance of the nose.
"One of my staff is a very pretty young Asian lady. When I built up her nose bridge she was so excited she literally jumped up and down. We all hear 'I love my nose! I love my nose!' about 10 times every day."
Radiesse is composed of a type of calcium so it is denser than other shorter-term collagen or hyaluronic fillers and thus requires some savvy injection skills to get a smooth result. Dr. Pilest uses the intraoral technique for facial folds and cheek augmentation. This particular technique means no pain and no bruising and the injection plane from intraoral injections means a very smooth result.
Bioform has recognized Dr. Pilest as both Premier Provider and Medical Education Faculty for Radiesse. Premier Providers refers to a select group of experienced providers who have achieved an exceptional level of Radiesse experience and Medical Education Faculty refers to physician leaders in the education and practice of facial aesthetics who are expert Radiesse injectors in a variety of aesthetic applications.
