Dermal filler injectables such as Radiesse currently rank as the second most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the US after Botox. Radiesse, in particular, is a powerful dermal filler injection approved by the FDA for facial volumizing and reducing the effects of aging.
The key ingredient in Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite, which differentiates this treatment from many other fillers and creates longer lasting results with a single in-office treatment. Apart from the longevity of results, Radiesse gel also produces more natural looking results by filling deeper wrinkles and creases in several areas of the face.
Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by Dr. Gregg Reger, provides a wide range of non-invasive and minimally invasive medical spa procedures, including Radiesse injections. Patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive Radiesse anti-aging treatment from the committed and standout Dr. Reger.
Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is a synthetic but completely biocompatible ingredient that has been safely used by medical professionals over the last 20 years. Microspheres of 25-45 microns diameter of this material are suspended in a cohesive gel, which is then delivered sub-dermally through small injections. Facial augmentation with Radiesse filler can occur with improvement of moderate to severe facial creases and folds.
Patients suffering from facial fat loss due to illness or other factors may also benefit from Radiesse filler gel. Long lasting outcomes are achieved in diverse areas of the face such as nasolabial folds and glabellar lines as well as to provide sub-dermal support to the brows, nose, tear troughs, lips, perioral region, oral commisures, marionette lines, and chin. Saucerized acne scars can also be mitigated with Radiesse injections.
Sustainability of Results
A single medical spa treatment of Radiesse filler injections can produce anti-aging effects for the face that will last for about 12 to 18 months. A typical dermal filler injection based on hyaluronic acid will usually create results lasting for about six months to a year. The difference in longevity of Radiesse comes from the CaHA microspheres which are designed to extend the volume sustenance.
When CaHA is injected in the form of tiny microspheres, it creates a kind of scaffold that triggers the development of new tissue similar to its surrounding environment. Once the CaHA particles are deposited in the deep dermis, it stimulates the product of fresh collagen and elastin fibers. This new fibroblastic in-growth occurs without calcification, creating long-lasting, natural looking results.
Fresh collagen production continues to volumize the deep tissue from within in the treated sites. This allows for the development of long term results because of the twin impact of instant filler and natural collagen triggered growth in volume.
Another advantage with Radiesse medical spa filler is that once a syringe of Radiesse gel is opened, the unused material after the first treatment can be recapped and retained for the same patient for future administration within the next three months. A skilled treatment provider will ensure that no air bubble formation occurs inside the syringe to avoid future hardening of the gel.
