Radiesse vs Juvederm
At ElleHomme Holistic Med Spa in Chicago, we offer a number of different dermal fillers to help our patients get the beautiful, youthful complexion that they have been dreaming of! Two of our most popular fillers include Radiesse and Juvederm. With all of these choices, however, it can be hard to pick which dermal filler is right for you. Although both of these fillers are FDA-approved to help lift and fill the skin, they work in different ways. When you come in for your free consultation, we will help you to choose which of these two fantastic treatments is right for you.
Juvederm is one of the most well known dermal fillers and for good reason. It is made out of a natural gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). When injected, this HA binds to water and plumps up the skin, restoring youthful fullness. There are a number of different Juvederm formulas which help to treat multiple skin concerns, including:
- Mild lines and wrinkles
- Mild volume loss
- Thin or undefined lips
- Hollow or undefined cheeks
Juvederm treatments only take 30 minutes, and are almost completely painless. Your results should appear almost immediately after treatment, but generally only last a few months. Because of this, it is often an ideal filler for first time patients who aren’t as familiar with fillers.
Radiesse, on the other hand, offers both immediate and long lasting results. This unique formula is made of a combination of calcium microspheres and a gel-like base. When injected into the treatment area, this gel helps to plump up the skin, offering results almost immediately. Unlike Juvederm, however, results from Radiesse last even after this gel has been absorbed thanks the the microspheres. These create a scaffold and stimulate your body to produce more collagen naturally. Because of this, Radiesse results can last up to a year.
Radiesse can be used to correct a number of issues, including:
- Smile lines and marionette lines
- Pre-jowl folds
- Chin wrinkles
- Volume loss in the hands
