Radiesse Dermal Filler
Radiesse is one of the popular, non-animal based dermal filler treatments aimed at rejuvenating the face by volumizing the wrinkled and depleted areas of the skin. The main active ingredient in Radiesse filler gel is calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a biocompatible compound. Radiesse injectable skin care treatment involves minimal discomfort or downtime, and can be performed in-office.
The dedicated and astute Dr. Gregg Reger provides this medical spa procedure to suitable candidates who want to improve their signs of facial aging in a non-surgical way. Dr. Reger will evaluate the patient’s degree of skin laxity, overall facial anatomy, and their specific cosmetic anti-aging needs.
Based on this assessment, he will customize the Radiesse injection treatment. Working people and busy moms increasingly prefer this safe and efficient procedure. The reliable Dr. Reger provides Radiesse to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding communities and cities in The Lone Star State.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)
Healthcare professionals have been using synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a proven and effective chemical compound, for over two decades. CaHA based Radiesse skin care treatment is completely safe and can be administered without subjecting the patient to any prior allergy testing.
CaHA microspheres are suspended in a viscous gel for cohesive, sub-dermal treatment. Patients who are bothered by the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and creases can achieve significant improvement with Radiesse facial filler. Patients with depleted facial fat due to disease or other reasons can also restore volume with Radiesse injectable procedure.
Areas of Treatment
Glabellar lines, nasolabial folds, sub-dermal support of the brows, nose, tear troughs, lips, perioral region, oral commisures, marionette lines, hands and chin are some of the common sites in the face that can be effectively addressed with Radiesse injections. Specific acne scars and other minor facial depressions can also be filled with Radiesse.
While most non-animal based filler injections produce results that can sustain only for about six months to a year, Radiesse can create results that can last for as many as 12 to 18 months. In addition to the prolonged benefits, Radiesse also offers the benefit of minimal risk of side effects.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse gel acts like a scaffold in the sub-dermal layers. At the same time, it stimulates the generation of new tissue similar to its surrounding environment. CaHA microspheres support the production of new collagen and fibroblastic in-growth without calcification. At the end of three months, some patients may require a follow-up Radiesse treatment.
Deep furrows, laugh lines, and vertical glabellar lines can be improved most effectively with Radiesse. Patients having mild facial asymmetry may also benefit from the volumizing created with Radiesse. The injectable treatment is also designed to mitigate minor lesions and saucerized acne scars.
Although Radiesse has a low rate of complications, it is still a powerful dermal filler injection, which should only be administered by a qualified provider. The right volume of Radiesse gel combined with the right injection skill can create desirable and predictable results in a targeted manner.
