RADIESSE is an FDA-approved injectable filler designed to mitigate the signs of facial aging and volumize the depleted areas of the skin.

InVogue Rejuvenation in El Paso, TX, provides RADIESSE® injectable treatment with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) Microspheres
Medical professionals have used synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a safe and proven chemical compound, for more than 20 years with highly effective results. The microspheres of CaHA are suspended in a cohesive gel and injected into the targeted facial areas at a sub-dermal level.
Women and men who are unhappy with the appearance of moderate to deep wrinkles and creases on the face can achieve conspicuous improvement with this dermal filler injections. Busy moms and working individuals commonly choose RADIESSE treatment for a quick facial rejuvenation with considerably lasting results because it involves minimal risk and almost no downtime.
This facial filler is typically used to treat the following areas:
• Nasolabial folds
• Vertical glabellar lines
• Marionette lines
• Oral commissures
• Perioral region
• Tear troughs
Individuals suffering from mild facial symmetry can also benefit from this injectable treatment. It can improve acne scars, small depressions, and minor lesions on the face. RADIESSE gel works most effectively to improve laugh lines and deep furrows.
This filler is now also used as a popular way to perform non-surgical rhinoplasty for people who want to correct minor aberrations in the shape and size of the nose. An experienced dermal filler provider may use the injectable treatment for hand augmentation in order to alleviate the bony, aged look of the hands.
How Do RADIESSE Injections Work?
Once RADIESSE gel is injected into the affected facial sites using very fine needles, it acts as a scaffold in the sub-dermal tissue. Secondly, it helps generate new tissue that matches with its surrounding environment. The CaHA microspheres work to promote the production of fresh collagen and elastin fibers and support fibroblastic in-growth while not causing any calcification.
The injectable treatment can be completed in a single sitting of less than 20 minutes in the provider’s office. Some patients may need a follow-up treatment after three months to achieve more sustainable results. A consultation with our team in Texas can help you develop the best treatment plan for you!
Sustainability of Results
When a skilled provider administers these injections in the right volume at precisely targeted depths and locations, the facial anti-aging and volumizing results can be fairly predictable and desirable. A single injectable treatment could last for about 12 months, but with a touch-up treatment, you may enjoy extended results for up to 18 to 24 months. It is important to have realistic expectations for treatment, and remember that results will vary.
