Facial fillers with Calcium Hydroxyapatite | Bioplasty

interest-free financingradiesse

It’s an injectable implant of Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) suspended in a carrier gel, in other words, a powdered bone but soft. The texture of Radiesse is like that of a cream, natural to the touch and remains in place for months or years.

Given that calcium hydroxyapatite is biocompatible, it is not necessary to wait for the results of allergy testing, and given that it is biodegradable, it adapts perfectly to the aesthetic needs of the face.

Clínica Sanza in Barcelona, Spain, is a reference centre in the treatment of facial fillers (bioplasty) with calcium hydroxyapatite.

It’s the ideal choice for:

  • A correction of the nose without surgery.
  • Reduce the appearance of expression lines due to smiling and smoking.
  • Correcting deep lines or wrinkles.
  • Improving the contours of the chin.
  • Emphasizing the jawline and cheekbones.
  • Achieving the healthy and youthful appearance of the cheeks.

Advantages of its use:

  • Reduce the appearance of expression lines due to smiling and smoking.
  • It can be injected with a fine needle, which reduces the trauma of the injection and the period of inactivity.
  • Once injected into the skin, the homogenous spherical particles of CaHA form a matrix which permits maximum infiltration into the natural tissue itself.
  • The CaHA particles consists of phosphorous and calcium ions which occur naturally in human tissue.
  • The excellent effectiveness and safety of calcium hydroxyapatite has been proven through numerous clinical trials over years.
  • It does not require any prior allergy testing as it has a totally biocompatible formula and does not produce toxic or allergic responses.

Are there any side effects?

Very few have been described. However, typical reactions related to the injection may occur, such as oedemas, swelling, pain, discolouration and discomfort at the injection site.

Is calcium hydroxyapatite permanent?

No. The carrier gel dissolves after a few months, which permits a new tissular infiltration. With the passing of time, the CaHa particles gradually decompose and completely metabolize.

Will I need any over-corrections?

No. Calcium hydroxyapatite needs exact correction, and therefore provides more augmentation per cubic centimetres than the products that require over-correction to achieve optimal results.

Does calcium hydroxyapatite go hard or perceptible to the touch?

No. The calcium hydroxyapatite remains soft, flexible and will adopt the characteristics of the surrounding tissue.

How long does it last?

An augmentation with calcium hydroxyapatite lasts from six months to two years in the majority of patients, but there are individual variations due to age, skin type, lifestyle and the muscular activity of the patient.

Has calcium hydroxyapatite been tested/proven?

Yes. The calcium hydroxyapatite has authorisation for use on facial augmentations; it has CE marking and various authorisations from the FDA in the United States.

How many treatments do patients need?

Some can achieve an optimal correction with a first and only injection. Others may need a touch-up to achieve the desired final results.
