Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles Improving volume loss!
RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are CaHA-based dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. While there are inherent risks to every procedure, having a well-trained, educated, and experienced injector will help to ensure the desired results of the treatment. At Blue Halo Med Spa, we invest heavily in ongoing training and education of our injectors so that you can rest assured to receive the best outcome possible.
Areas of Treatment
How it Works
It’s the first and only FDA-approved CaHA portfolio that provides immediate contouring plus the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. When injected, the CaHA particles then integrate into your skin and create a “scaffold” that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin
Frequently Asked Questions
The consistency of a CaHA filler is typically thicker than that of a hyaluronic acid filler and typically lasts longer as well, about 12 months for most patients. Calcium hydroxyapatite is also reported to help stimulate natural collagen production, and it is typically used for deeper lines and wrinkles.
Most patients can return to their everyday activities after leaving the office. To reduce any redness and swelling from the injections, your injector may recommend icing the area for 15 to 20 minutes before you leave.
Before you leave the office, you should be able to apply makeup. For approximately 24 hours after treatment, you should avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area.
This varies with the filler. Most fillers do not cause downtime. Be sure to ask your injector whether you will have any downtime. Some bruising, redness, and swelling are to be expected but can be lessened by taking arnica and eating fresh pineapple. Before having injectables, it is advised to avoid using vitamin E and Ibuprofen as they cause thinning of the blood and create more bruising.
This also varies with the filler. Most fillers fill the skin, so they produce immediate — or close to immediate — results. A filler also can stimulate your body to produce collagen, but this takes time.
