Question: Calcium Hydroxylapatite For Collagen Stimulation - Which technique is best? 

What Calcium Hydroxylapatite injection technique is best for collagen stimulation?

It is well known, that CaHA stimulates collagen production. Which is the best-in-class injection technique to maximize the desired effect and ho much risk should you take?

Mesotherapy with CaHA? Linear threading with blunt tip Cannulas after having effected subcision?

What is "the best" technique seems to be impossible to answer at this time. Most of the injectors have developed their own way of injecting, particularly Radiesse.
Personally, ever since 2009, I have been using cannulas for almost all Radiesse injections. I use small volumes, more frequently, until the final effect is truly aesthetic. This method allows me to use only small touch-ups for maintenance that seem to be separated by longer intervals than using a standard method. Is it due to the bio-stimulant effect of CaHA and accumulation of collagen? I'm sure, in part, it is. However, one can not discount a collagen-stimulating effect of physical soft tissue injury caused by injection itself. I see a similar effect using HA fillers in the same manner, particularly within the lips.
