In the world of aesthetic medicine, dermal fillers have been a game-changer, offering an effective solution for those who seek a rejuvenated and youthful look without invasive surgery. Traditionally, the most commonly used dermal fillers have been hyaluronic acid (HA) based. But now, we have another exciting category of products in the aesthetic toolbox: non-hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
Non-hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Sculptra and Radiesse provide alternative treatments, encouraging the body to stimulate its own natural collagen and elastin production. This improves not only skin volume but also overall quality. Dr. Rohit Kumar, an aesthetic medical expert and anesthesiologist, is skilled in the use of these fillers, to offer tailored treatments for the unique needs of every patient.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)
CaHA, also known as Radiesse, is a biocompatible and non-toxic substance. Suspended in a gel, CaHA microspheres stimulate collagen production while also providing immediate volume and correction. It’s commonly used to treat deep lines, wrinkles, and volume loss.
PLLA, commonly known as Sculptra, is a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic substance. It works differently from other dermal fillers. Rather than providing immediate volume, it stimulates the body to produce collagen over time, gradually enhancing facial volume and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
PMMA is a non-absorbable, synthetic substance. As a dermal filler, PMMA comes in microspheres suspended in a collagen gel. Its unique characteristic is its permanence, as it remains beneath the skin indefinitely, providing lasting structural support.
Non-HA fillers can be used to decrease wrinkles and restore volume in the face and neck, and the back of the hands. Radiesse and Sculptra are also commonly used for non-surgical enhancement of the buttocks or a non-surgical “butt lift”.
Considerations Before a Filler Injection
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Rohit Kumar. He will assess your skin condition, discuss your aesthetic goals, and recommend the most appropriate treatment for you.
Understand that results are not immediate with some non-HA fillers like Sculptra and Radiesse, which stimulate collagen production over time. Patience is required for the best results.
Possible Side Effects
While non-HA dermal fillers are generally safe, side effects can occur, including swelling, bruising, and redness. Rarely, lumps or bumps may form under the skin.
Follow the aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Kumar. This often includes avoiding strenuous activities, sun exposure, and extreme temperatures for a period following treatment.
