BACKGROUND: Diluted/hyperdiluted calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) represents an emerging biostimulatory treatment. However, limited data concerning the effects of this agent on the face have been provided so far. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the efficacy and safety of hyperdiluted CaHA 1:2 treatment for mid and lower face rejuvenation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of 40 patients seeking skin rejuvenation for mid and lower face, treated with hyperdiluted CaHA 1:2 technique at baseline (T0), was performed. Patients were classified according to validated scales of aging in the mid to lower face at T0 and efficacy was established with scales calculated again at 4-month post-treatment (T1). In addition, efficacy was assessed by blinded evaluation of T0/T1 clinical pictures, non-invasive skin imaging and patient satisfaction. Safety was assessed through pain scale and minor/major adverse events. RESULTS: Hyperdiluted CaHA 1:2 successfully decreased aging severity scores of the mid and lower face. Variations of collagen morphology and increased vessel density at T1 were observed with noninvasive skin imaging. Most patients were very satisfied. Mean pain score was low and only minor adverse events were reported. CONCLUSION: Hyperdiluted CaHA 1:2 technique seems to be effective and safe for mid and lower face skin rejuvenation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Diluted/hyperdiluted calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) represents an emerging biostimulatory treatment. However, limited data concerning the effects of this agent on the face have been provided so far. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the efficacy and safety of hyperdiluted CaHA 1:2 treatment for mid and lower face rejuvenation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of 40 patients seeking skin rejuvenation for mid and lower face, treated with hyperdiluted CaHA 1:2 technique at baseline (T0), was performed. Patients were classified according to validated scales of aging in the mid to lower face at T0 and efficacy was established with scales calculated again at 4-month post-treatment (T1). In addition, efficacy was assessed by blinded evaluation of T0/T1 clinical pictures, non-invasive skin imaging and patient satisfaction. Safety was assessed through pain scale and minor/major adverse events. RESULTS: Hyperdiluted CaHA 1:2 successfully decreased aging severity scores of the mid and lower face. Variations of collagen morphology and increased vessel density at T1 were observed with noninvasive skin imaging. Most patients were very satisfied. Mean pain score was low and only minor adverse events were reported. CONCLUSION: Hyperdiluted CaHA 1:2 technique seems to be effective and safe for mid and lower face skin rejuvenation.
