Also known as a “liquid facelift,” facial fillers can temporarily provide the benefits of a surgical procedure without the down-time or recovery. Dr. Sumit Sitole offers Radiesse and Juvederm as temporary facial rejuvenation alternatives that can soften facial creases and add volume. Radiesse and Juvederm offer different benefits and can be used to treat different areas of the face.
Juvederm vs. Radiesse
Juvederm is hyaluronic acid filler that is used primarily to hydrate and augment facial tissue. Juvederm is frequently used to enhance the nasal folds, lips, brows or hollowing under the eyes. Radiesse offers a firmness and support that can be beneficial for issues that require more structural support. Radiesse is often used for enhancing the cheeks.
Facial Fillers Procedure
Similar to Botox Injections, a thorough understanding of the underlying structures of the affected areas will ensure the very best results. After applying a numbing cream to the treatment area to enhance patient comfort, injections are strategically made to the designated areas to add volume, reduce wrinkles, and minimize deep folds.
Facial Fillers Results
Patients can typically see results immediately following the injections, but results will improve as Facial Fillers begin to settle. The results from both Radiesse and Juvederm are temporary and repeat injections will be necessary to maintain a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.
