(Results vary by individual patient and  results cannot be guaranteed)

If you are looking for immediate and long-lasting correction of moderate to deep facial folds, wrinkles, and diminished facial volume, consider Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic’s Vancouver Radiesse ® treatments. Radiesse effectively treats signs of facial aging, including: smile lines (nasolabial folds), marionette lines, chin wrinkles and lip corners. Not only does Radiesse provide a quick, non-surgical face lift, it also stimulates the production of your body’s own collagen – responsible for skin’s structure and elasticity – so results improve over time.

What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler gel containing biocompatible calcium-based (calcium hydroxylapatite) microspheres, which provide immediate volume to deflated skin, stimulate the growth of new collagen over time, and degrade naturally to calcium and phosphate ions which are metabolized by the body. Radiesse filler provides natural and subtle results that get better over time and are clinically proven to last a year.

The FDA concluded in its Radiesse Summary of Safety and Effectiveness that clinical studies reported no serious adverse effects. In a patient satisfaction study, 90% of patients were either satisfied or extremely satisfied with their results 12 months after treatment.

A clinical study of Radiesse treatments administered to 609 patients concluded that “calcium hydroxylapatite-based implant (Radiesse) is a safe, long-lasting, highly effective, and well-tolerated agent for many areas of facial soft-tissue augmentation.”

Am I a good candidate?

You are a good candidate for Radiesse treatments if you want long-term correction to:

Radiesse contraindications:

Do not have Radiesse treatments if you have severe allergies with a history of anaphylaxis, multiple severe allergies (either presently or in the past), hypersensitive to any of Radiesse’s ingredients, or have a bleeding disorder. Women who are pregnant or think they may be pregnant should not have injectable filler treatments, including Radiesse. See Radiesse Instructions for Use for more detailed information.

Before the treatment

  • Avoid red wine for 1 day before the treatment.
  • Avoid Aspirin, Motrin, Advil (ibuprofen), non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and other blood thinners for 1 day before the treatment.
  • Avoid taking 1 week before the treatment: Don quai, evening primrose oil, ginkgo leaf, ginger, garlic, ginseng, feverfew.

What happens during the treatment?

Before your Radiesse treatment begins, a technician will take photos, which are used to compare how you looked before and after the treatment. You’ll have a consultation and your treatment will be planned. A numbing cream will be applied to the treatment areas and allowed 10-20 minutes to take effect. Before each injection, the injection site will be further numbed with an ice pack. The combination of topical anesthetic and ice makes the treatment quite comfortable for most patients.

Treatment time: 30-minutes to 1 hour depending on how many areas are being treated.

(Results vary by individual patient and results cannot be guaranteed)

After the treatment

  • Avoid exercising for the rest of the day.
  • Do not massage treatment areas.
  • Do not sleep on your face for 2-4 days following the treatment.
  • Treated areas may be slightly swollen/bruised after the treatment. For most patients this resolves in 1 or 2 days but in some cases may last for up to 2 weeks.

Recovery time: No downtime required.  Most patients experience no noticeable post-treatment effects. Patients who experience more prominent swelling/bruising may want to take social downtime.

How many treatments will I need?

One Radiesse treatment will last for 1 year or more.

Fillers

Dr. Frame, Nadine and the staff at the Clinic are wonderful! I have always been self conscious about my chin being slightly recessed and decided to try fillers (first time). Dr. Frame and Nadine thoroughly walked me through the process and answered any questions that I had. They were extremely patient and I felt completely at ease during the process. I had Perlane injected to my chin area and the results were phenomenal! My face looked much more balanced and it was what I was looking for and more! I had a great experience and highly recommend the Clinic!

Happily staying looking young with Dr. Frame and Nadine

I am so happy that I have found Dr. Frame and his wife Nadine. I am the type of person who has fears of looking old – who doesn’t? But now, after having putting myself in Dr. Frame’s hands 3 years ago, I don’t have to worry or fear looking old anymore. Dr. Frame and his wife Nadine can always find ways to keep me looking younger when I go and see them.

To be honest, over the past 3 years I’ve learned that I can just completely trust them and not worry.They propose treatment plans that are the most effective and economical for me and so far, each treatment has worked beautifully for me. I am not the type of person who writes reviews often online; but with Dr. Frame and Nadine, I finally decided to spend my time and write one because they truly deserve it! Each visit I came away looking better!

Some of the features on my face were fixed or improved bit by bit over the past years. Yesterday I went there for a regular filler injection, and I had a bit of extra material left over. Dr. Frame put it on my nose bridge and nose top, which dramatically made my face looking prettier ever than before! I never knew that my nose could look this straight– at no extra cost!

Dr. Frame and Nadine always try their best to work out plans that bring out the best results within my budget. And they are super devoted and honest about the work they do. I have a few doctor friends who give similar services as Dr. Frame does, but I have decided to follow Dr. Frame and Nadine because of a few reasons:

1) Dr. Frame’s state-of-the-art injection techniques.

2) Their advanced and updated knowledge about new materials, products, and techniques in the anti- aging market.

3) Their ability to make me look younger and prettier each time I walk out of their office and keeping me within my budget.

4) Their flexible, creative minds that can create some surprising results which I could never have imagined.

5) Their wonderful team in the office

6) Great decoration/slick environment in their office.

With a great satisfaction and confidence, I would say, I feel that I am in good hands and I can keep myself looking better than most women at my age for a very long time.

After modeling at a conference in this field I had my follow-ups done at Anti-Aging.
The staff made me feel at ease and were very professional. Nadine assessed my face and recommended a little extra filler in some areas. It was was a painless procedure administered by Dr. Frame.
I highly recommend Dr. Frame, Nadine and their staff to anyone.
I look and feel wonderful thanks to the team at Anti-Aging.

VERY HAPPY I CHOSE THIS CLINIC!

This was my first time seeing anyone about filler for my deep tear troughs. I was nervous about getting filler and looking “done.” The staff were very patient and entertained my plethora of questions. My consultation with Nadine was very pleasant and she gave me a rundown of what she envisioned for me, taking into consideration what I was comfortable with and my budget. I was only in for a consultation but decided to move forward with the procedure. Dr. Frame was extremely friendly and I really enjoyed his bedside manner. I struggle with acne also and both Nadine and Dr. Frame seemed keen on helping me with my skin. Dr. Frame answered all of my questions about my options and was very thorough in his inquiries about my health. I truly felt like I was in good hands. I also really appreciated that there was a second set of eyes during the entire process and that Dr. Frame took my suggestions into consideration. Lastly, and probably most importantly, I didn’t feel pressured to do more than what I was comfortable with. Nadine explained the importance of a cheek filler as a base for the tear trough filler. After seeing the finished results, I definitely see how important this was! Overall, this was a very positive first time experience with filler and I am very happy with my decision to go to Dr. Frame as my research was based purely on what was available on the internet. I would highly recommend this doctor and this clinic! I am very pleased with my results and am amazed at what a difference I am seeing! I look forward to the follow-up!

For those that are either new or familiar with neuromodulators and/or facial fillers this clinic is outstanding in both service and results. I am a RN and have been in the plastic surgery and medical aesthetics industry since 1998 and it wasn’t until December 2015 at Dr. Frame's office that I finally found the best injector I have EVER had. The team is kind, informative and caring. On my first visit I was given a full consultation and Nadine developed a care plan for me. She was very clear that it was not their intention of trying accomplish this in one treatment session, unlike other clinics that I have encountered. She asked me what my budget was and we worked from there.

When I was ready to have my treatment I saw the assistant come in with multiple syringes all containing different amounts of Botulinum toxin.(I know this may not seem important to most people, however, it makes a difference as the needle on the syringe becomes dull very quickly after multiple injections). Most clinics don’t do this. The filler I received was outstanding, NEVER have I had such a comfortable injection process and the results were beautiful. Facial fillers require a thorough understanding of anatomy but also a creative eye, that coupled with a gentle hand is almost impossible to find but I found it with Dr. Frame. I have posted this from a nursing and consumer perspective because I know what happens in this medical aesthetic industry and how poorly many are trained. I recently moved to Vancouver I did a lot of research on many clinics prior to entering Dr. Frame's clinic and it was well worth it. If you are new to these procedures….please start here at this clinic.

I’m very happy with the results I’ve gotten with Dr. Frame. We moved here 6 years ago from Toronto and it took some time to find the right doctor. I tried a few other well known west-side doctors with results that weren’t great. Dr. Frame listens to what I want – a natural look that’s not a face full of neuromodulators. His bedside manner is calming and informative. You just may get a few free anti-aging tips along the way – he’s just that good. Most importantly, we’ve all seen the bad work that’s out there in Vancouver and I feel for those women. Too many neuromodulators and filler. Why can’t they see what we see? Dr. Frame is an artist when it comes to ensuring a natural look. When I look in the mirror I’m thankful to have found someone as skilled as Dr. Frame.
