We are delighted to introduce HArmonyCa, Allergan Aesthetics’s first dual-effect product as a new treatment. The HArmonyCa treatment combines two active ingredients, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) in one injection to support the lower face area. This dual-effect hybrid injectable provides an immediate lift from Hyaluronic Acid, a natural substance found within us which causes us to look plump and youthful when we are young. The Calcium Hydroxyapatite provides a sustained lifting effect from the gradual collagen stimulation and therefore has longer-lasting results.
The HAmonyCa treatment is injected into the mid and lower face (cheek and jaw). Categorised as a biostimulator, it is formulated for facial soft tissue augmentation via injection into deep dermal and sub-dermal layers of the skin with the intention to provide an immediate lifting effect combined with a sustained lifting effect whilst helping to stimulate collagen. As we age, our body starts producing less collagen which reduces the volume behind our skin. Re-introducing the Hyaluronic Acid and Calcium Hydroxyapatite using the hybrid injectable HArmonyCa treatment can help you boost and support the body’s collagen production whilst improving your skin architecture, enhancing and sculpting the face. This treatment also improves the texture of the skin.
Some precautions to follow with the HAmonyCa treatment would be:
- Need to leave 4 weeks pre or post HArmonyCA for any other Aesthetic Treatments
- More invasive treatments such as RF/Morpheus would need to wait 6 months
- No other Biostimulators (Ellanse Radiesse, Sculptra) for 12 months
- Cannot have Threads before or after for 12 months
Following the procedure, there may be some slight tenderness and very occasionally there may be some bruising at the injection site, however these symptoms will dissipate quickly. You may experience swelling for a short period of time after the procedure. We recommend that any vigorous activity or exercise is avoided for the first 24-48 hours following the procedure. Results will be seen immediately post-treatment with a lift although the stimulating results will be seen from approximately 3 months after treatment. These results can last until approximately 12-18 months because of the gradual collagen stimulation. This is a great treatment if you are looking to combat the signs of loss of volume or poor soft-tissue structural support through ageing.
