Types of Fillers and Injectables: The Essential List


Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are renowned for their ability to add volume and hydration to the skin. They are ideal for smoothing wrinkles, plumping lips, and filling in hollow areas.


Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers

Radiesse is a popular filler in this category. It stimulates collagen production, enhancing skin's natural structure for a more youthful appearance.


Poly-L-Lactic Acid

Sculptra is the go-to product in this category. It works by stimulating your body's collagen production, providing long-lasting and natural-looking results.


Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Fillers

Bellafill is a semi-permanent filler that adds volume to the skin, particularly useful for treating deep wrinkles and acne scars.


Autologous Fat Injections

Fat grafting or fat transfer involves extracting fat from one part of the body to inject into another, offering a more natural solution for skin rejuvenation.
