How Is RADIESSE® Different Than HA Fillers?

Featured Image

There are many types of dermal fillers available on the market today. Each filler is uniquely formulated to provide particular attributes such as thick and volumizing, versus thin and spreadable, or stiff and supportive, etc. It can be overwhelming to decide which dermal filler is the right product for you. If you’re considering cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate your aging face in Dallas, TX, RADIESSE is one of the unique dermal fillers offered by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Adean Kingston. 


Most dermal fillers are made with a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). RADIESSE is made with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which is stiffer than HA gel fillers and therefore provides good support in areas such as the nasolabial folds, chin, and jaw line. RADIESSE lasts 12-14 months and stimulates collagen production. The professionals at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC can help determine which injectables are best to achieve your cosmetic goals when you come in for a private consultation at our clinic. Read more about the benefits of RADIESSE below. 


What is RADIESSE? 

Dermal fillers are among the most requested cosmetic treatments to restore facial volume and treat hollow or sagging skin. Dr. Kingston uses the unique RADIESSE formula to reduce temple concavity, create cheekbones, soften the nasolabial folds, strengthen the jaw line and chin, as well as to reduce the appearance of aging hands. RADIESSE fills in lines and creases, adds volume, and provides support to structures while promoting collagen formation. 


How the advanced RADIESSE formula works 

So, what sets RADIESSE apart from HA fillers? Collagen is one of the most essential components of firm and healthy skin. The calcium hydroxylapatite solution in RADIESSE helps your body produce more collagen for results that only get better over time. This means treatment with Radiesse will continue to work after your initial procedure is over. 


RADIESSE offers the following benefits for patients in Dallas:  


Lift and contour the skin  


Correct mild to moderate wrinkles  


Stimulate collagen production  


Long-term improvement of skin quality  


Easy and convenient treatment  


Longer-lasting results with RADIESSE 

In addition to renewed collagen production, RADIESSE also offers more sustained results than many hyaluronic acid fillers. Depending on the treatment area and amount of product used, RADIESSE can last between one year and 14 months. If we recommend RADIESSE as part of your anti-aging regimen at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC, our trained team can let you know when to return for follow-up sessions. 


What to expect after RADIESSE 

One of the biggest advantages of RADIESSE is that it requires virtually no downtime. You can get treatment in the morning or afternoon and return to work the same day. You can also resume normal exercise the following day. Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC can let you know what to expect after RADIESSE and give you information about addressing side effects, such as mild redness and swelling, or bruising that may occur.
