In our third and final post for “Botox & Dermal Fillers – What are they, how do they work, and how are they different?” we are going to look at two other types of dermal fillers, Calcium hydroxylapatite and poly-L-lactic-acid-based fillers.
Calcium hydroxylapatite (such as Radiesse) and poly-L-lactic-acid-based fillers (such as Sculptra) stimulate your own body to reproduce collagen to re-volumize your face. Partial results from these types of fillers are visible right away, however what makes these fillers different than hyaluronic acid fillers is that they continue to work beneath the skin after you leave the office. The creation of new collagen will continue over several weeks, and results are generally longer lasting, 1 year or more for Radiesse and 2 or more years for Sculptra.
These fillers can be used to treat a variety of concerns, from deeper lines around the mouth to volume loss in the cheeks and hollows in temples. Results vary, depending on which filler is used to help you to reach your goal.
