(PRWEB) December 14, 2015
Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, led by internationally known Triple board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Louis DeJoseph, has been named as 1 of 2 Merz Center of Excellence in Georgia. This means Dr. DeJoseph is an expert in Radiesse for Hands, demonstrating exceptional technique in the treatment of hand rejuvenation. The FDA recently approved the use of Radiesse to correct volume loss that occurs in the dorsum of the hands. It is manufactured by Merz North America, which is the U.S. affiliate of the global Merz Pharma Group.
Dr. Louis DeJoseph is in the top 2% of all plastic surgeons nationwide and has been named one of the top facial plastic surgeons in Atlanta—as well as being recognized for a number of awards nationwide and in the Southeast. Publications such as Best Self, Jezebel, and the Atlantan magazines have all recognized the achievements of Dr. DeJoseph. Recently, Dr. DeJoseph and his team of experts were named one of the Top Beauty Experts in Atlanta by Modern Luxury Media Group.
Dr. DeJoseph is as current thought leader and an international trainer for the leading manufacturers of facial rejuvenation products. Being passionate about safety and results, he is excited about the most recent FDA approval. He is further thrilled to be able to help patients reach their goal of younger-looking hands. According to Dr. DeJoseph, Radiesse creates smooth, natural-looking hands that can last up to one year. Radiesse accomplishes this by producing an immediate volumizing effect that helps reduce the visibility of veins and tendons in the hands.
At the Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery in Atlanta, Dr. DeJoseph has used Radiesse for quite some time to reduce facial wrinkles, creases, and scars. It is most commonly used to treat imperfections around the lips, nose, and corners of the mouth. This synthetic injectable filler reduces unsightly skin marks by augmenting the body’s natural supply of collagen. Radiesse is comprised of microspheres in a biocompatible gel. Because it is made from the same minerals found in the body, there is no risk of allergic reaction.
The expansion of Radiesse to treat hands was born out of the fact that clinical research has shown an increase in the attention being paid to the aesthetics of the hands, particularly among those who have previously undergone facial rejuvenation procedures. Merz has actively been exploring unmet needs in the U.S. aesthetic market, leading them to expand Radiesse for use improving the appearance of hands.
Randomized, controlled U.S. trials of Radiesse showed 98 percent of patients treated during the trials experienced improvement in the appearance of their hands at three months. Furthermore, the procedure is non-invasive and causes little side effects for patients. Minor side effects may include injection site reactions such as redness, swelling, bruising, and pain. When these side effects occur, they are typically mild to moderate and short in duration lasting about one week. These side effects also require no treatment. Furthermore, no severe device-related adverse side effects have been reported.
In addition to Radiesse, Dr. DeJoseph also offers a number of injectable fillers designed to improve the aesthetics of the face. These include Botox, Disport, Restylane, Sculptra, and Juvederm.
The center is dedicated to the development and enhancement of cosmetic and laser surgery techniques and has set the standard for superior care in the Atlanta area. When working with patients, Dr. DeJoseph’s goal is to form a trusting relationship from the beginning, which leads to better communication and better results.
