Juvederm vs Restylane vs Radiesse Differences Explained

Juvederm vs. Radiesse vs. Restylane

Our faces develop wrinkles and deep lines as we age. Gravity takes its toll on our skin, making it less flexible (and probably a touch more obese). Collagen, a material produced in profusion by a young body but much less abundantly as we get older, is responsible for the lack of suppleness in the skin.

A group of therapies called as fillers has been created to offset the effect of this lack of collagen and to fill in the creases. The first fillers were based on injecting collagen into the body to aid with skin healing and suppleness. However, their effects tended to be transient (three months or less). As a result, alternatives were considered.

Hyaluronic Acid is a kind of hyaluronic acid that helps

 

Restylane

One of the earliest HA-based fillers, is still popular since it may be administered everywhere and is readily broken down by the body. The active ingredient (HA) aids in the repair of skin damage, particularly during sunburn recovery. The results lasted up to six months, approximately twice as long as a single direct collagen injection.

 

Juvederm

Is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that was developed as part of a second generation of hyaluronic acid-based fillers. It had a better consistency, which meant it didn’t seem lumpy under the skin like other fillers did.

Juvéderm dermal fillers are a hyaluronic acid-based injectable gel that can add volume to your face at the injection site. Juvéderm can plump your lips, smooth out the “parentheses” or “marionette” lines that run from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth, and boost the fullness of your cheeks.

Even though it was effective, Juvederm only lasted around six months. As a result, manufacturers continued to conduct research in order to improve the product.

CaHA is an acronym for “beyond HA.”

Radiesse

is a calcium-enriched, longer-lasting hyaluronic acid-based filler for non-invasive cosmetic surgery. The active components accomplish two goals:

  • a scaffolding-like framework to support the skin
  • aggressively encourage collagen production

Radiesse

is particularly effective in treating deeper lines because it is supplied as a gel containing the active ingredient as well as calcium-based microspheres. All of this lays the groundwork for a long-term treatment (up to 2 years). The durability is due in part to the time it takes to break down the CaHA components, as well as the fact that collagen is produced surrounding the microspheres.

Radiesseis not suitable for use around the lips, while being a good all-around filler in many ways. It can, however, be utilized to make drastic modifications like jawline contouring and minimizing the appearance of dark areas under the eyes.

Unlike other longer-lasting treatments based on a similar active component and structural element, the Radiesse application therapy takes less than an hour and produces rapid benefits.

While the procedure is typically painless, a dental block or local anesthetic may be administered in particularly sensitive areas to keep the patient as comfortable as possible.

Radiesse corrects wrinkles and folds in the face and hands with calcium-based microspheres. Your body produces collagen as a result of the microspheres. Collagen is a protein found naturally in the body that gives skin its strength and flexibility.
