HA fillers, RHA fillers etc…… how do I know which to choose?

Do o you know that there are DIFFERENT types of fillers AND that fillers can be put in MANY areas of the body?

First, lets talk about the types of fillers:

  1. Custom Dermal Fillers (PRP)- these fillers are created from your own blood plasma. We take your blood, place it in a centrifuge, take the PRP, place it in a heating device followed by a cooling device. This creates your very own custom dermal filler.
  2. Hyaluronic Fillers- This is the most common type of filler. Some people call these gel fillers. Some examples are Restylane, Juvederm or Belotero.
  3. RHA Fillers- RHA stands for Resilient Hyaluronic Acid. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid gel that is designed to mimic the natural hyaluronic acid produced by the body.
  4. PLLA Fillers- This is known as a bio-stimulatory dermal filler. This filler stimulates your own skin to produce new collagen. Sculpture is an example.
  5. CaHA Fillers- These fillers are better for deep wrinkles, restoring volume in areas with significant sagging or hollowing, and creating more structural enhancements. Radiesse is an example.

Now, lets talk about the various places we can use fillers:

  1. Jawline
  2. Temples
  3. Under eye bags/tear troughs
  4. Hands
  5. Corners of mouth
  6. Ear lobes

So what is the moral of this newsfeed……NOT all fillers are made the same. Now with that being said, an expert aesthetic provider can work with any of these fillers. And it’s not the job of the patient to determine which filler is best. Ultimately, the patient wants to minimize wrinkles, enhance their lips or cheeks, or soften hollow areas of the face……and this can be done with fillers. Trust that your provider will determine which one is the best but have the knowledge that there are various fillers.
