Collagen Stimulation

Collagen Stimulation with RADIESSE CaHA is a dermal thickening filler that is used for smoothing crepey, aged skin on the face, neck, arms, chest, elbows, knees and abdomen, and for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands. It is also used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth), as well as age-related volume loss in the mid-face.

Why choose RADIESSE?

RADIESSE is a viable option to help provide a long-lasting natural look while immediately smoothing wrinkles.

  • Immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen with results that can last a year or more in many patients
  • CaHA is absorbed over time and metabolized, leaving behind only your own natural collagen
  • Clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients
  • Provides excellent results
  • FDA-approved to mix with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to significantly reduce injection-related pain

Before & After Collagen Stimulation Treatment


How does it work?

When RADIESSE is diluted beyond its normal preparation it can be spread thinly and evenly beneath the skin to stimulate production of new and healthy collagen, resulting in smoother, firmer skin. Hyperdilute CaHA injections can be used to improve the texture and appearance of crepey skin on the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees, and abdomen.

What is CaHa?

RADIESSE contains microspheres of CaHA (calcium hydroxylapatite), a type of mineral that's found in human teeth and bones. When used in a filler, the calcium particles are tiny and suspended in a thick gel-like solution.

What to expect?

Hypderdilute CaHA (Radiesse) is applied beneath the skin using a blunt-tipped cannula. The  procedure utilizes lidocaine and is safe and comfortable. Bruising is not uncommon, to plan  accordingly. This collagen-inducing therapy is meant to be done in a series of injections (averaging 3) at 4-6 weeks apart. Photos will be taken before and after each session to track your success!

“This a cutting-edge application of RADIESSE injectable filler. Instead of using it to recreate volume and structure, which it is also excellent for, we are spreading a fine layer of these tiny calcium spheres throughout the skin to stimulate new collagen.” This treatment is an excellent complement to more traditional skincare services as it is treating from the inside out.
