Definition - What does Calcium Hydroxylapatite mean?
Calcium hydroxylapatite is an injectable dermal filler that aims to restore facial volume and enhance the natural contour of the face by promoting the production and deposition of natural collagen, our natural body soft tissue filler. Hydroxylapatite treatment is used to correct the contour of the nose, the jaw (in order to achieve a more oval shape of the face), to enhance the look of the cheekbones, and for the treatment of facial volume loss.
TheConsultation explains Calcium Hydroxylapatite
When infused, hydroxyapatite interferes with the tissue collagen fibers, creating a larger mesh on which the body develops the new collagen. In other words, the calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres activate the production of collagen in the skin around its application area. The beneficial effect of hydroxylapatite is not only immediate but also long-term. The clinical results may last up to 2 years, depending on the amount of the drug infused, the patient's skin quality and age.
