  • (1888PressRelease) December 18, 2018 - The Juvederm filler involves injecting a natural gel called hyaluronic acid to relax fine facial lines and wrinkles. It can restore facial contours and correct folds around the eyes, mouth, and nose by filling fine lines and holding water at the site of the injection. The effects typically last for up to a year. Results are almost instant, though the treatment can take a longer time. Radiesse, meanwhile, stimulates collagen proteins that already exist in your body. This can help fill in wrinkles on your face and on the backs of your hands. The results of Radiesse typically last for up to two years and can help correct smile lines and other wrinkles. Both treatments involve injecting natural materials to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles in certain areas.

    Juvederm is non-surgical and non-invasive, with long-term results. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, and larger doses of Juvederm have fewer risks than other types of injections. Radiesse is typically a faster procedure and also poses little to no risk. Skin becomes smoother almost immediately after the procedure, with full results occurring within seven days. Juvederm is not recommended for people who have severe allergies that result in anaphylaxis, have multiple severe allergies, or are under 21 years old. Radiesse is also not recommended for those with severe allergies and should also not be used for people who are allergic to lidocaine, have a bleeding disorder, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
