Injectable dermal fillers have revolutionized med spa anti-aging facial treatments in recent years. Over a million such procedures are performed every year in the US with successful outcomes. Juvederm and Radiesse are two of the leading, FDA approved dermal fillers designed to reduce facial aging and restore a smoother, firmer looking face.
One of the first things that a patient will usually want to know is which type of filler may suit them the most. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain the differences between various fillers and suggest the right options for the patient. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides both Juvederm and Radiesse injectable fillers to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Juvederm family of dermal fillers is among the most popular filler injectables available today. Juvederm depends on hyaluronic acid rather than collagen or fat to add volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the human body, which makes it a completely biocompatible option. It holds the skin firmly together and keeps it looking youthful. Results with Juvederm med spa treatment can last for about six months to a year in most cases.
Juvederm is commonly used for anti-aging treatment in areas such as the nose, mouth and forehead. Moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines can be reduced with this treatment. In many cases, Juvederm can also be used to enhance facial contouring and improve the appearance of acne scars. Lip augmentation can also be achieved with Juvederm.
Juvederm Voluma, which is a thicker and heavier version of the filler, is specifically designed to add volume to the cheeks. Juvederm fillers have a superior gel consistency, which makes the injections less painful and the results more enduring. The filler does not require any prior allergy tests because of its biocompatibility.
Radiesse is an advanced cosmetic filler to treat deeper wrinkles, creases, and folds around the nose and mouth. Deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and laugh lines can be reduced with this filler. Unlike Juvederm, Radiesse is composed of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite. This is also a biocompatible substance found naturally in the body.
Radiesse microspheres are suspended in a gel-like solution to produce a longer lasting effect. Radiesse material is more stable and does not get disintegrated easily in the body. For the first three months after the treatment, Radiesse performs as a cosmetic filler to add volume to the skin and reduce aging effects.
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 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.
Nose, cheeks, and chin augmentation without surgery can be achieved with Radiesse. No allergy tests are required with this treatment, which makes it more popular that synthetically produced fillers. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Radiesse.
