What is a collagen stimulating dermal filler?
It is an injectable dermal filler that has unique properties. This type of filler contains tiny calcium-based microspheres (calcium hydroxy appetite or CaHa) which are suspended in a water-based gel. These calcium spheres are similar to minerals that are found naturally in your body.
How does this type of dermal filler work?
CaHa stimulates the body to produce collagen and elastin thereby improving skin density and elasticity over time. Collagen stimulating dermal filler is an excellent treatment option for improving the appearance of thin, crepey skin on the back of the hands, the neck and the décolletage.
Why do we specifically use CaHa in the hands, neck and décolletage?
The skin of the back of the hands, the neck and the décolletage is thinner than the skin on the face. Consequently, these areas tend to become crepey sooner than the face. Because these areas are thin, it is not ideal to treat with traditional HA fillers as a natural appearing result is difficult to achieve. By comparison, bio-stimulating fillers are ideally suited to treat thinner skin and results are typically last 12-18 months.
