What are calcium hydroxylapatite dermal filler injections like Radiesse?

What are calcium hydroxylapatite dermal filler injections like Radiesse?Radiesse is one of the leading FDA approval cosmetic dermal filler procedures designed to mitigate the facial signs of aging through a one-time injectable treatment. This innovative medspa procedure utilizes calcium hydroxylapatite as its key ingredient. The procedure involves little to no downtime or discomfort, making it ideal for busy moms and working people.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Radiesse facial filler procedure to appropriate candidates.
Dr. Motykie and his team will customize the injection procedure according to the patient’s unique facial anatomy, skin laxity, and their personal cosmetic goals. Motykie medical spa provides Radiesse dermal filler injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities across the horizon.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

Synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is a proven and effective chemical compound that medical professionals have been using for the last 20 years. CaHA is completely biocompatible, which means the patient will not require a prior allergy test for Radiesse injections.
Tiny microspheres of CaHA are suspended in a gel for cohesive, sub-dermal application. Radiesse facial enhancement filler will create sustainable reduction in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Some patients may experience facial fat loss due to illnesses or other factors, which can also be addressed with Radiesse medspa injection treatment.

Areas Treated

Common facial sites that are successfully treated with Radiesse filler gel include glabellar lines, nasolabial folds, sub-dermal support of the brows, nose, tear troughs, lips, perioral region, oral commisures, marionette lines, and chin. Certain types of acne scars can also be improved with Radiesse.
Results with Radiesse injection treatment in the facial areas will usually last for about 12 to 18 months, unlike many other fillers which last for only about six months to a year. The advantage of CaHA in Radiesse is extended longevity of results and minimal risk of side effects.

How does Radiesse work?

Radiesse filler gel performs the role of scaffold in the sub-dermal region, and triggers the formation of new tissue similar to its surrounding environment. Once the microspheres of CaHA are deposited in the deep dermis, they stimulate the production of fresh collagen and fibroblastic in-growth without calcification.
This is possible because CaHA imitates the environment where it is placed. Radiesse follow-up treatment just for a touch up may be scheduled in a few cases at the end of three months.


Best results with Radiesse are achieved by patients who want to reduce vertical glabellar lines, nasolabial folds and deep furrows in the face. If the patient suffers from mild to moderate facial asymmetry requiring some volumizing, Radiesse may be a good treatment. Minor lesions and saucerized acne scars can be mitigated with Radiesse.
While Radiesse has a low rate of side effects, it is vitally important to choose the right filler treatment provider who is qualified and experienced in performing such advanced injectable procedures. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and neighborhoods in this region of SoCal for Radiesse dermal filler and other non-surgical aesthetic procedures.
