What are calcium hydroxylapatite injections?

Dermal fillers like Calcium Hydroxylapatite are used to fill the moderate-to-severe creases, like frown lines, marionette lines and nasolabial folds. This is the heaviest dermal filler – one example is Radiesse.

In addition to filling in area of the face, Calcium Hydroxylapatite is also used to enhance the fullness of the cheek and other contours of the face. It is a synthetic filler, which lowers your risk of an allergic reaction. It produces very natural results, and there are very few if any side effects.

Costs can vary based on individual patient needs and the amount of injections required.

The costs involved in this procedure include facility fees, medical tests, cost of the calcium hydroxylapatite, Dr. Jimerson’s fee and any medication or any additional treatment that may be required. Our staff will provide you with a detailed cost estimate for your procedure.

First used in surgery and dentistry, calcium hydroxylapatite is calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel.  It boasts a long safety record.

Like some other types of semi-permanent dermal fillers, calcium hydroxylapatite has small particles in it that work to help your own collagen grow around the gel. Over a period of time, the particles dissolve through normal metabolic processes in the body.
