Deep Dive into Dermal Fillers: A Comprehensive Guide into the ones offered

By: Our Team


Dermal fillers are a popular solution for addressing various aesthetic concerns. These are a great way to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and enhance facial features, thereby providing a non-invasive way to achieve youthful, radiant skin. Whether seeking subtle enhancements or significant changes, dermal fillers provide a safe and effective solution for rejuvenating the skin and restoring youthful vitality.

However, with all the available options, understanding the different types of dermal fillers is important in helping you make an informed decision. Let’s dive into the diverse world of dermal fillers.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are among the most common and versatile options. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body, making these fillers safe and compatible with most skin types and by most patients. They work by attracting and retaining moisture, plumping up the skin to reduce wrinkles, and add volume.

  • We offer Juvéderm and Restylane HA fillers.

Calcium Hydroxyapatite Fillers

Calcium hydroxyapatite fillers are composed of calcium microspheres suspended in a gel-like solution. These fillers not only add volume but also stimulate collagen production, providing longer-lasting results compared to HA fillers. They are often used to correct deeper wrinkles and facial contours. It’s also very effective around the jaw line and on the hands.

  • Radiesse is available here. 

Poly-L-lactic Acid Fillers

Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) fillers are bio-stimulatory agents that stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. While results may take longer to appear compared to other fillers, PLLA fillers offer gradual improvement and can last up to two years. They are particularly effective for treating facial volume loss and deep folds.

  • Sculptra is our PLLA filler of choice.

Autologous Fat Fillers

Autologous fat fillers, better known as fat transfer or fat grafting, is gaining in popularity with our patients. It involves harvesting fat from one area of the body where you don’t want it, purifying the fat, and injecting it into desired areas of the face. Since the filler material comes from your own body, there is no risk of allergic reactions. Fat transfer procedures not only add volume but also improve skin texture and tone.

RHA (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) 

RHA fillers are designed to mimic the natural hyaluronic acid found in the skin, offering a more dynamic and natural-looking result compared to traditional fillers. RHA fillers are cross-linked using a gentle manufacturing process that maintains the natural structure of hyaluronic acid, allowing it to adapt to facial movements and expressions for a more flexible and lifelike appearance. This flexibility can result in a smoother integration with the surrounding tissue and longer-lasting results. Additionally, RHA fillers are often used in areas of high mobility, such as around the mouth and eyes, where traditional fillers may be less effective.

  • We provide the RHA Collection fillers.
