1. HYALURONIC ACID (HA) FILLERS: TO ENHANCE VOLUME AND HYDRATION CHOOSE THIS POPULAR FILLER TYPE

  • Popular Brands: Juvederm®, Restylane®, Belotero, Revanesse®
  • Properties: HA fillers are the type of filler renowned for their soft, gel-like consistency and are primarily used to improve the skin's contour while diminishing depressions caused by scars, injuries, or lines. Moreover, the natural ability of HA to attract and retain water results in improved skin hydration and elasticity.
  • Applications: This type of filler is specifically ideal for lip augmentation, reducing creases and wrinkles, and enhancing volume in the cheeks and under-eye areas.
  • Reversibility: One of the unique features of HA fillers is their reversibility. Importantly, they can be dissolved with the enzyme hyaluronidase, making them a safer choice for those hesitant about permanent cosmetic changes.

2. CALCIUM HYDROXYLAPATITE (CAHA) FILLERS: THIS TYPE PROVIDES STRUCTURAL SUPPORT AND COLLAGEN STIMULATION

  • Key Brand: Radiesse®
  • Properties: This type of dermal filler is derived from a mineral-like compound found in human bones. This filler is thicker than HA, thus providing excellent structural support. It is biocompatible without any animal-derived ingredients.
  • Applications: Notably, this type is best for deeper lines and wrinkles like nasolabial folds, enhancing cheekbones, and jawline definition. It also stimulates natural collagen production, extending the longevity of the treatment results.
  • Longevity: Typically, lasts 12 to 18 months, making it a durable choice for those seeking longer-lasting improvements.

  • Key Brand: Sculptra®
  • Properties: Poly-L-lactic Acid is a type of synthetic filler designed to stimulate collagen production over time, enhancing skin texture and volume gradually.
  • Applications: It addresses deeper facial wrinkles, folds, and loss of volume, particularly in the cheeks and midface area. Furthermore, its type of filler that allows a gradual approach to volume enhancement results in more subtle and natural-looking improvements.
  • Longevity: Significantly, the effects can last more than two years, making it a suitable option for those looking for sustainable and progressive facial rejuvenation.

  • Applications: This type of filler is often used for deeper wrinkles, such as severe nasolabial folds and for reconstructing areas with volume loss or scar corrections.
  • Longevity: Consequently, it offers semi-permanent results, making it one of the longest-lasting types of fillers available on the market today.
