Deciding which filler treatment is right for you can be a challenging task. You have to consider what kind of procedure you are willing to undergo, recovery time, how long the results will last, and what kind of results you can expect. When it comes to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin, Juvederm and Radiesse are both great options to choose from.
Juvederm and Radiesse are both dermal fillers that can add fullness to the face and reduce the signs of aging as an alternative to plastic surgery. These two fillers provide similar results, but the way in which they correct your fine lines and wrinkles is different. There is also a big difference in how long the results will last.
Juvederm is a filler which uses hyaluronic acid, a natural gel found in the body, to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles to allow you to appear several years younger. It works to reduce signs of aging by filling fine lines and holding water in at the injection site. This filler is used in the restoration of facial contours and corrections of line around the eyes, mouth, and nose. You can expect the results of Juvederm to last for about a year, although some people experience lifelong corrections.
Juvederm causes little to no reaction because it is made up of hyaluronic acid which can naturally be found in the body, so it is easier for the body to accept the filler. The results of Juvederm can be seen almost immediately after the procedure, and you will notice that your fine lines and wrinkles have a much smoother appearance. Juvederm is particularly good for adults who are looking to reduce signs of aging from their skin.
The Juvederm procedure consists of a trained professional injecting the filler into your desired locations to add volume to the facial tissue. Juvederm itself contains a local anesthetic, so you may not even be able to feel the area of the injection. The entire procedure should take between 30 to 60 minutes depending on how much hyaluronic acid you require. For the next several days following the treatment, you might experience soreness, redness, itchiness, bumps, swelling, or bruising. All of these side effects should resolve themselves naturally. You should avoid strenuous physical activity, makeup, alcohol, and sun exposure for at least 24 hours following the procedure.
One of the biggest benefits of Juvederm is that it is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that will give you long-term results. Only an hour of your time can remove unwanted wrinkles and lines for up to a year (even longer in some cases). Because hyaluronic acid is found naturally within the body, larger doses of it can be administered as there are not as many risks as associated with other fillers.
Radiesse is another filler that can fill skin folds, creases, and wrinkles around the face and hands. Radiesse works by stimulating your collagen production and aiding in the production of new collagen over time to help reduce the signs of aging. You can also use Radiesse to help the appearance of the back of your hands.
Radiesse treatment is beneficial because it is a non-invasive procedure that can provide long-term results lasting from a period of 9 – 15 months. Radiesse is a great filler for those who are looking to correct smile lines and lines found on the back side of the hands. This filler is also beneficial because there is very little risk of side effects when administered by a trained professional. Fat loss and fine lines can also be easily corrected with this filler. There is no recovery time associated with this treatment, which makes it ideal for many people. You should notice the full results of your younger and healthier looking skin within seven days of your treatment.
Before the procedure begins, the areas where you will be receiving the injections will be marked and cleaned. Once the injections have been administered, Radiesse will work rapidly (usually less than 15 minutes) to stimulate your collagen production. While side effects are rare, you may experience swelling, itching, bruising, redness, of loss of feeling in the hands. These side effects should resolve naturally on their own. Strenuous activity and long sun exposure should be avoided for a minimum of 24 hours after your procedure.
