Over the last decade, the field of injectables has exploded, yielding dozens of unique formulas designed to deliver subtle effects and tackle concerns beyond the run-of-the-mill wrinkles. In the hands of skilled professionals, fillers can be used to sculpt the face, reshape our features, enhance a profile, and discreetly reposition skin tissues that have shifted with time. One of the latest and most innovative injectables on the market is HArmonyCa, a hybrid filler that combines the best of both worlds: the collagen-stimulating function of calcium hydroxyapatite and the immediate yet natural effect of a hyaluronic acid filler. So, what exactly is HArmonyCa, and what sets it apart from other fillers? Read on for my thoughts.
What is HArmonyCa?
Without a doubt, one of the biggest launches in aesthetics of recent years is HArmonyCa – a dual-effect, hybrid facial filler that has created an entirely new category in injectables. It blends two ingredients – hyaluronic acid, the main component of traditional dermal fillers, and calcium hydroxyapatite – to give both an immediate effect and a slow-release, long-lasting lift to the face that continues to improve over 9 months.
What sets it apart from other fillers?
HArmonyCa, which tends to last for between 1 and 3 years, has a sculpting effect and gives some immediate volume to the face in the areas injected, but it also has a secondary effect of stimulating collagen production in the surrounding area over time. This collagen will remain in the face after the filler has dispersed, which is a great bonus if you’re concerned with signs of ageing. It is also popular for making older hands look more youthful, with great success.
However, unlike HA fillers, bio-stimulating fillers can’t be as easily dissolved, so if you don’t like the results, you’re stuck with them until the filler eventually degrades naturally. So, if you’re considering this treatment, please do see an experienced, highly qualified medical practitioner.
Is it right for you?
I’ve been working with the product for almost two years now, and the results are excellent. It is a fantastic addition to my treatment portfolio. Many patients seek help with lifting and tightening, and there is only so much we can do with dermal filler and other devices, which is where HArmonyCa comes in. It sits in that area where the skin is crepey and needs tightening, especially around the cheek area – the most common comment is the improvement in the skin texture. It’s also perfect for lifting and tightening the jowls, marionette lines, the jawline and smile lines that are notoriously difficult to treat.
If you’d like to look refreshed overall, with smoother, tighter skin and a more restored structure to your face, this may well be the route to go down.
