"Cindy is absolutely phenomenal. I got botox injection to help relieve my migraines and she was amazing. The procedure took very little time and I had no pain during or after the procedure. She was extremely helpful with everything and very knowledgable. The office was beautiful and homie, so I didn't feel any stress sitting in a stiff doctor's office. I would recommend her to everyone and will be going back again."- J.M. / Google / May 22, 2018
"Caring and Compassionate - I started going to Dr.Korba a little over a year ago. A little back story I had been seeing a different surgeon (had part of my colon removed and a ileostomy placed. After that surgery I got very sick and couldn't keep anything down. My surgeon didn't seem concerned and got very nasty the last time I saw him and I was to nervous to go back) So I get a appt with Dr.Korba and soon as he sees me he is very concerned as my weight was only 68lbs & I'm 5'6 and 35 years old. He set me up for blood work and a couple different test. I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. He started me on a medication and I've been so much better. A year later I'm at 108lbs and have a colonoscopy scheduled. If everything looks good I'll be able to have my ileostomy reversed! Dr.Korba is a very kind and compassionate doctor. He is also a man of God! I can't say enough good things about him. He's just an all around good person and actually really cares about his patients."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 07, 2021

"He's absolutely the best in our opinion. He takes time with his patients. He really listens to his patients. Also he is a Godly man. He has been both my husband's and my surgeon for many years. We consider him a great friend as well. We highly recommend him for patients needing a surgeon. "- B.A. / Healthgrades / Jul 23, 2017

What to Expect with treatment
RADIESSE dermal injections take between 30 – 60 minutes to complete and are provided within a secluded, serene treatment room at our Bowling Green, KY med spa. Following your treatment, you may notice mild swelling, bruising, and redness on your skin. While these effects are normal and should last for around a week, they can usually be concealed with makeup. Most patients notice some visible changes right away with more dramatic results appearing over time. The effects of RADIESSE wrinkle treatments tend to last around 1 – 2 years, which may be longer than other dermal fillers. Our skilled team can advise you on when to schedule touch-up RADIESSE sessions to maintain your softer, younger-looking appearance.
RADIESSE® Procedure FAQs
How much does RADIESSE cost?
Your cost for a RADIESSE treatment is based on the number of syringes to match your desired outcome. In your initial consultation at our practice, your injector will ask about your concerns and goals. Then, they can create your custom treatment plan and explain the costs for treatment.
How does RADIESSE compare to other fillers?
Fillers all have unique properties and formulas to fit different concerns. Common filler materials are HA (hyaluronic acid), calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa), poly-L-lactic acid, and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). RADIESSE is composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are similar to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers due to their natural ability to stimulate collagen production in your body. In your initial consultation, your injector will discuss the various choices and evaluate your skin's volume and tone to recommend which one is correct for you.
Are RADIESSE injections painful?
Usually, patients don't need any form of numbing prior to their injections. However, numbing cream is available to relieve any concerns you may have. New patients usually only have minor and short-lived discomfort as the needle goes in.
What are the side effects of RADIESSE?
Injections of RADIESSE rarely produce abnormal side effects if performed by a skilled injector, like the ones at Bluegrass Aesthetics. During your initial consult, tell your injector about medications you take and any known allergies to avoid problems. Right after your treatment, you might have mild redness, bruising, numbness, or itching. These side effects are temporary and generally fade in 1 – 2 days.
What other procedures can I combine with RADIESSE?
Injections of RADIESSE can be performed along with other injectables for a liquid facelift to help achieve your optimal results. Many patients inject dermal fillers, such as RADIESSE, along with BOTOX® or another wrinkle relaxer to produce a refreshed appearance. Talk to your injector during your consultation to consider procedures that work well with RADIESSE.
