JUVÉDERM® is an injectable that’s a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration. This treatment is also used to lessen the appearance of smile lines and nasolabial folds, the parentheses around your mouth, which run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.

RADIESSE® is another injectable filler that provides immediate and long-lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds. It’s most commonly used to treat areas with obvious signs of facial aging, RADIESSE stimulates your body to produce its own collagen for a natural and youthful look without surgery or a huge investment of time.

What to Know About Choosing a Filler

Tiffany George, an experienced Aesthetician with Vitalogy explains, “JUVÉDERM is a HA product good for volume in lips while RADIESSE is calcium-based, so it’s good for treatment in people age 40 and older to add volume and produce collagen.”

George also notes, “All fillers are different as they work in different areas of your skin’s tissue. They typically are for volume loss, superficial wrinkles, and enhancing aging skin.”
