What is Radiance™? Radiance is the newest filler available in the U.S. Fillers are substances injected into the face to lessen the appearance of lines and grooves as well as augmentation (enlargement) of lips, chin, or cheeks. Radiance™ is also used to fill acne depressions and is the ideal treatment for facial wasting. Radiance™ has shown an exceptional safety record in over ten years of use.

Radiance lasts from two to five years and results from radiance are immediate!
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS, can perform Radiance at his Westchester or Manhattan, New York office. Feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation with him to discuss radiance - a fast and easy procedure.

Now you can dramatically minimize lines and creases and restore vitality to your face with Radiance. The formation of lines and creases on the face and the thinning of lips are a natural part of living, not just aging. They occur when the underlying tissues begin to break down. They also result from years of smiling, frowning, squinting or smoking. In other words, these marks of maturity are inevitable. But their permanence need not be. Radiance can help.

Radiance is the ideal treatment for these areas of the face:

  • Lines between the nose and mouth, between eyebrows and on the upper lip
  • The so-called "smile lines" and "frown lines"
  • Depressions and blemishes like acne scars.
  • Thinning lips
  • Shallow cheeks
  • HIV induced Facial wasting (Radiance can fix HIV induced facial wasting in less than 20 minutes)

 Radiance is a Simple Procedure for Long Term Satisfaction

Radiance is a non-surgical treatment, performed as a simple injection during a office visit to the doctor. A numbing, or anesthetic agent, may be applied to the area, after which Radiance will be injected with a very fine needle designed for cosmetic purposes.

As Radiance™ is gently injected, it builds up the tissues of the face, reducing folds and creases and restoring fullness. It does not paralyze or act on the face's muscles. Enhancement with Radiance is relatively painless, and any minor swelling from the injection typically disappears within 24 hours. You can comfortably return to normal activities after your radiance treatment. Best of all, you'll see results immediately from radiance and can expect to enjoy them for up to three or more years.

Radiance Yields a Synthetic Purity, Natural Appearance

Radiance™ is unlike any other product for facial enhancement. It is as remarkable for what it isn't, as for what it is. Radiance is not silicone or polymetylmethylacrylate beads, materials that are permanent and cannot be removed should problems occur. Radiance is not a human or animal product, which can cause inflammation and reaction. Nor is it a bovine collagen or a muscle relaxant, both of which produce only temporary results.

Rather, Radiance™ is a pure, synthetic compound with a record of safety that extends more than 25 years. It is comprised of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, combined with an aqueous gel. The key element of Radiance is identical to the chemical structure of calcium naturally present in the human body. Throughout its life, Radiance remains soft and flexible and also exceptionally compatible with the body.

Prior to its introduction, the Radiance™ formula was extensively tested in the United States and Europe. No reactions or rejections have been reported to date.

When injected, the cream-like texture of Radiance feels soft and natural. Unlike temporary treatments that must be repeated, Radiance provides years of rejuvenation. It is gradually replaced by the body's own tissue, and slowly dissolves away in approximately seven years.

You need not think that it's too early to enhance your facial features. Perhaps you'd like more voluptuous lips, or want to diminish the appearance of blemish scars from childhood. Radiance™ can make select areas of your face more to your liking. Ask your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas Senderoff, MD, FACS, about the range of possibilities with Radiance™.

What will Radiance look and feel like after you've been treated?
As a material, Radiance is cream-like in texture and remains that way throughout its life. The sensitivity and feeling of enhanced areas are retained. Once injected, its softness resembles that of your normal facial tissue. In fact, your own tissues will integrate with the Radiance microspheres as a natural process of your body. Since your physician can control the amount of Radiance injected, you can achieve the exact amount of enhancement you desire. Individuals who have received Radiance treatment are very pleased with its natural look and feel. Most important, they say it passes the most crucial test of all — the "kiss test"!

Radiance™ is unique among treatments to enhance the face and offers a combination of benefits unavailable with other approaches:

  • A time-tested synthetic material used in medicine and dentistry.
  • Complete safety and compatibility with the body.
  • Produces a soft, natural-looking appearance.
  • Lasts up to three years or more without repetitive treatments.
  • Animal and human tissue-free; no allergy testing required.
  • Can be performed during an office visit.
  • Results from Radiance are immediately visible.

Many options exist for reversing the effects of time and aging on the face, from major surgical procedures to injectable enhancements. Radiance stands alone as a safe, durable and worry-free treatment. In less time than it takes for a hairstyle, you can present a renewed, revitalized face to the world. Results with radiance are immediate.

HIV-related Facial Wasting and How Radiance Will Improve Your Appearance

Facial wasting is rapidly becoming an important issue in the lives of those living with HIV. Radiance can help your appearance immediately with no down-time.  A person’s HIV status sometimes becomes apparent just looking at their face- this is called facial wasting. Self-image and self-esteem issues are now arising because of facial wasting. Out of despair and necessity, many HIV positive people are searching for reconstructive techniques that could improve their facial wasting. Radiance will dramatically and immediately improve your appearance. Feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, to discuss how radiance can improve your facial wasting.

HIV patients are living longer then ever through the advent of several new classes of anti-viral medications. These medications including the class of anti-viral protease inhibitors have been thought to be implicated in producing side effects that can cause loss of fat and redistribution of fat in various areas of the body of HIV infected patients. One of the most common side effects results is what has become known as facial wasting, a sunken cheek area producing a sallow gaunt and emaciated appearance. Facial wasting is a stigma of HIV infected individuals.

Despite the fact that many patients with HIV are healthy and robust with even undetectable viral loads, facial wasting has rapidly become a significant issue in the lives of those living with HIV. Self-image and self-esteem, can be challenged as a result of this obvious physical manifestation termed “facial wasting.” Until recently there has been no release from the stigma of HIV induced facial wasting. In the past remedies for the soft tissue atrophy of the face have included fat injections, off label liquid silicone injections, and facial implants. Now, an injectable implant called “Radiance™” is available to you.

As one of the first plastic surgeons in Manhattan, New York to offer Radiance™ and one the most experienced plastic surgeon in the use of Radiance™, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS, is able to achieve extraordinary results in reversing the appearance of HIV facial wasting.

The doctor has treated hundreds of patients with facial wasting - the results are immediate and long lasting with extremely high patient satisfaction.
