RADIESSE (Calcium hydroxylapatite):

Radiesse (Calcium hydroxylapatite) contains spheres of uniform Calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a sodium carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier that is found naturally in human bones and is a mineral-like compound. RADIESSE is approximately 30% CaHA and 70% gel carrier by volume.

 

RADIESSE is injected under the skin in a minimally invasive procedure. Injection of the product provides an immediate and visible correction to the wrinkle. There is no skin sensitivity testing or reconstitution required.

 

Over time, the gel is absorbed, and fibroblasts appear. The process of neocollagenesis begins, stimulating the gradual growth of the patient’s own collagen. The collagen that forms results in extended correction and increased patient satisfaction. RADIESSE builds structural scaffolding by stimulating collagen production for a year or longer after only 1 injection.

 

Radiesse is used for:

  • Moderate-to-severe creases such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines and frown lines

  • Enhance fullness of the cheeks and other facial contours

  • Improve volume in areas of facial wasting such as can occur in HIV-positive people taking certain medications

 

Calcium hydroxylapatite is biosynthetically produced, which means that no animals or animal products are used. This lowers your risk of an allergic reaction and no skin testing is required. This type of dermal filler is known to produce a very natural result, doesn't migrate and side effects are rare. This dermal filler was first used in dentistry and reconstructive surgery and has a long safety record.

The Hyaluronic acid in Juvederm is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers. If the term sounds familiar, it's because the same substance is often injected into the aching joints of people with arthritis to ease pain and provide extra cushioning.
