HArmonyCa®️ Hybrid dermal filler gives an immediate lift (HA=Hyaluronic Acid) and sustained collagen stimulation (Ca=calcium hydroxyapatite) in a single injection.
HArmonyCa®️ with Lidocaine is the newest add-on to Allergan's Juvederm®️ soft-tissue filler range. This injectable treatment provides an immediate, long-lasting lifting effect as CaHA triggers new collagen synthesis within the skin.
Our Advanced practitioner, Sarah, administers this treatment.
What is HarmonyCa?
HArmonyCa®️ is a dual effect, hybrid dermal filler: the latest to complement Allergan's Juvederm range. It combines the benefits of the traditional HA fillers (immediate, visible lift) with CaHA spheres (long-term lifting through collagen synthesis). This unique blend of ingredients helps remodel the skin, resulting in an immediate refreshed look.
Significant improvements have been demonstrated with HArmonyCa®️ in a clinical study.
Who is HarmonyCa for?
HArmonyCa®️ is for patients with a considerable amount of wrinkles on the side of the face and in front of the ears, especially when smiling. HArmonyCa®️ can target and treat the lateral aspect of the face only, not the lips or neck.
What is the difference between HarmonyCa and other dermal fillers?
The main differences between HArmonyCa®️ and the rest of the Juvederm range are the following:
- HArmonyCa®️ has a long-lasting effect on the quality of this skin by improving its structure beyond the longevity of the HA component.
- HArmonyCa®️ treats the superficial under-layer of the skin, while the other Juvederm volumizing fillers are placed in the deeper tissues either on
boney foundation or in the fat layers.
- Due to the superficial placement of HArmonyCa®️, it doesn't have most of the possible complications of soft tissue fillers, such as vascular occlusion.
How does HarmonyCa work?
HArmonyCa®️ is injected into the lateral part of the face in a superficial (sub-dermal) manner. Due to its dual-action, the HA (Hyaluronic Acid) component provides an immediate lifting effect, while the CaHA (Calcium Hydroxyapatite) spheres trigger continuous collagen stimulation through activating ibroblasts. As a result, new collagen fibres may be present as early as one week following treatment.
What are the benefits of HarmonyCa?
HArmonyCa®️ is a hybrid filler, which means that it has two beneficial components. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) spheres
HA: an immediate lifting effect with the longevity of over a year. CaHA: gradually appearing, long-lasting collagen synthesis triggered by the CaHA spheres, which improves the structure and fullness of the skin beyond the longevity of the HA component.
The result is smoother skin with fewer wrinkles or dynamic lines at the sides of the face. The new collagen fibres may be present as early as one week following treatment. The product also contains Lidocaine which immediately numbs the treatment area and makes the procedure more comfortable for the patient
What happens in a HArmonyCa treatment?
The HArmonyCa®️ treatment is performed using a cannula. It means fewer needle pricks and safer delivery compared to needles. It is a superficial procedure in the under-layer of the skin on the side of the face.
At 415 Professional Aesthetics , a 45-minute appointment is required if you have had cosmetic treatments here before. If you are a new patient, your journey starts with an initial aesthetic consultation. After the initial photographs are taken, the skin will be thoroughly cleansed, and the injection points marked up.
HArmonyCa®️ is administered superficially into the skin, so numbing cream is not needed and the treatment is safe. There are 1-3 iniection points per side. The procedure comes with minimal discomfort, and is easy to manage. Straight after the treatment, the skin will be cleansed again gently and massaged with arnica gel to smooth out the CaHA spheres evenly.
One treatmentconsists of the application of 2 syringes of HArmonyCa®️ (2x1.2ml). If needed (recommended) the session can be repeated in 6-12 months' time for better results (with half or one syringe per side)
