Juvederm Voluma and Radiesse are both high-strength facial fillers aimed at reducing the facial signs of aging in a non-surgical manner. The med spa treatment provider will explain the basic differences between the two fillers and help the patient choose the right option. Tribeca Medaesthetics cosmetic surgery practice and medical spa provides dermal filler treatments to patients in Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and surrounding locations.
Juvederm Voluma is different from nearly every other injectable facial filler because it is designed for the specific purpose of restoring cheek volume. It is the first and only FDA approved cosmetic filler for this purpose. It adds volume instantly to provide a subtle lift and improved facial contours. Unlike most other fillers which remain effective for six to 12 months, Juvederm Voluma results can last for up to 24 months.
Juvederm Voluma XC, which is a variant of this med spa filler, includes lidocaine, which avoids the need to apply a local anesthetic separately. Loss of mid face volume occurs in varying degrees in different people, but in each case it will adversely impact facial appearance because of the loss of cheekbone definition. The filler can quickly restore mid face volume to provide a more youthful, natural looking appearance.
The volumizing ability and sustainability of Juvederm Voluma comes from its unique Vycross technology. Vycross enables cross-linking of the filler gel molecules to produce significant lifting capacity. Due to cross linking, the degradation of the gel is also avoided, enabling longer lasting results. Tribeca Medaesthetics surgical practice and medical spa receives patients from Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and nearby areas for dermal filler treatments.
Radiesse is an advanced dermal filler designed to address deeper facial wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth. Laugh lines, deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines can be mitigated with Radiesse. The filler comprises microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a biocompatible substance found naturally in the body.
These microspheres are suspended in a gel to ensure a longer lasting effect. The unique feature of Radiesse is that the gel is more stable and does not disintegrate quickly in the body. In the first three months after Radiesse injections, the treatment will act as typical cosmetic filler to volumize the skin and reduce aging signs from the face.
After that, the microspheres of Radiesse will begin supporting fresh collagen production. This will promote the development of new tissue. Therefore, the results with Radiesse are more sustainable and will last for up to two years. The filler gel is powerful enough to address facial lipoatrophy, scars, facial dimples, and certain medical concerns.
Thereafter, the Radiesse microspheres start promoting fresh collagen production. This leads to the development of new tissue, and as a result, the effects can last for as long as two years. This injectable filler treatment is powerful enough to be used for the treatment of facial lipoatrophy and various other medical concerns, as well as chin dimples and scars.
