If you would like to restore volume to your face and refresh your appearance, dermal fillers like Juvederm Vollure and Radiesse are excellent options. But how do you decide between – Juvederm Vollure vs Radiesse, and which treatment reduces lines best?
Juvederm Vollure is derived from cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the skin and keeps it firm and plump. Juvederm Vollure is specially formulated to fill in moderate to severe wrinkles, particularly nasolabial folds (folds that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth). The effects of Juvederm Vollure last up to 18 months (read more).
Radiesse consists of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel. Radiesse is FDA approved for treating moderate to severe wrinkles and folds including smile lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. The results of Radiesse can last anywhere from 9-12 months (read more).
Juvederm Vollure vs Radiesse: Which Treatment Reduces Lines Best?
Both Juvederm Vollure and Radiesse can reduce facial lines, but the choice will depend of the depth of the lines, and your skin type.
Radiesse is a thicker product than Juvederm, and italso gives a subtle ‘lifting’ effect, which makes it a good choice for deep lines and folds. Juvederm is a silkier, more moldable formulation. This makes it effective for shallow wrinkles. It is also better suited for people with thin skin.
Dermal fillers must be appropriately injected to achieve the best outcome, so patients should always consult with a highly trained and qualified injector, preferably a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
