Total : Total office visit time for Radiesse (dermal fillers) injection really depends on how complicated your treatment is (how many areas of the face will be addressed). In the majority of patients that i see an hour should be enough time for you to get everything taken care of. To be sure you could call your plastic surgeon ahead of time to verify this.

An : An experience injector should have it done in about a half hour per site or less, including numbing. If you are only getting your naso-labial folds done, yes.

Less than an hour: filler injections take 10 minutes to 45 minutes depending on numbing techniques, and amount injected.

I : I suspect that in most offices you should be able to get everything done in under an hour. You could ask your specific provider's office directly to make sure, though.

Your : Your question is a very good one. Commonly most injections take only a few minutes to perform, but please note that this is an oversimplification. If you are known to the physician and the aesthetic goals have already been determined - then you are ready to go. However, if you have yet to visit with your doctor, convey your concerns, and review therapeutic options, then your visit will take longer. An hour is reasonable to achieve all of these goals and your treatment during a first visit. It is important to note that it is your face and there is no advantage in cutting corners during the first visit. Be healthy and be well, james m. Ridgway, md www.Larrabeecenter.Com.

Initially : Initially you should have a complete evaluation of your face and have a discussion concerning the pros and cons of radiesse (dermal fillers). If you arrive with no makeup on then you will not have to remove it. The procedure and evaluation requires about an hour or so.
