Over the last several years, dermal filler injections have emerged as the second most popular cosmetic skin care and facial anti-aging procedure after Botox. More than a million dermal filler injectable treatments are performed in the US each year. Two of the leading dermal fillers approved by the FDA include Juvederm and Radiesse.
While Juvederm is more effective in treating facial fine lines, Radiesse filler gel addresses deeper facial creases and folds. At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various dermal filler and other non-surgical treatment options with the patient, explain their pros and cons, and help the patient make the best choices.
Vein treatment and skin care expert Dr. Gregg Reger of Reger Vein and Skin Specialists provides both Juvederm and Radiesse injectable fillers to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding communities and suburbs in this area of this amazing state called Texas.
One of the most sought-after injectable facial fillers available today is the Juvederm group of dermal fillers. The active ingredient in Juvederm gel is hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body to hold the skin together. This biocompatible substance is injected through Juvederm gel into the deeper skin layers for skin rejuvenation and volumizing.
Juvederm injections can produce natural looking facial youthfulness and smooth skin that will sustain for about six months to a year with a single treatment. Areas such as the nose, mouth and forehead can be treated most effectively with Juvederm.
Moderate wrinkles and fine lines are successfully eliminated, and Juvederm may also improve facial contours and mitigate the effect of acne scars. Lip enhancement is also achieved with Juvederm.
Treatment of deeper wrinkles, creases and folds around the mouth and nose can be performed more effectively with Radiesse, which is more advanced cosmetic medical spa filler. The filler can help improve deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines and laugh lines. Radiesse filler is composed of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is also a biocompatible material.
Microspheres of Radiesse are suspended in a gel to produce a more sustainable and longer lasting effect. The active agents in Radiesse are more stable and as a result the gel does not quickly disintegrate in the body. Radiesse works as cosmetic filler to volumize the skin and lessen the facial aging effects in the first three months of treatment.
After this period, the microspheres of Radiesse help in the triggering of new collagen fiber production. New tissue development is promoted through this process, and the anti-aging impact can last for up to two years. Chin dimples, scars as well as facial lipatrophy may also be addressed with Radiesse filler.
The stronger and deeper results with Radiesse are achieved without any invasive techniques except small injections. Mild augmentation of the chin, cheeks and nose can also be achieved with this filler gel for patients who want to avoid cosmetic surgery. The procedure does not require any prior allergy testing.
