Restylane or Radiesse? – RI Restylane Doctor Informs You

The RI Restylane Doctor want you to know which dermal filler is right for you.

It wasn’t much more than a decade ago that the only way to turn back the clock on the facial aging process was invasive plastic surgery. Today we are fortunate that there are many minimally invasive options that can smooth out wrinkles, restore lost volume and resurface our skin, all resulting in a more youthful appearance. Even better is that many of these procedures can be done in less than an hour, with little or no downtime.

Restylane-in-Rhode-IslandUsing dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Radiesse, can dramatically slow the signs of aging for decades helping to delay or avoid the need for plastic surgery. Women and men of all ages are increasingly turning to these procedures to help preserve or restore a more youthful appearance.

Restylane has been used world-wide by millions since 1996. This hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal filler has an excellent safety record. HA is also a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. Since HA is hydrophilic, once Restylane is injected, it binds to the skin’s natural stores of water. This results in a plumping of the skin and a smoother more youthful appearance in the treated area. Tear troughs, nasolabial folds, and lips are the most common areas that HA fillers are used. Results can last from 6-9 months.

Radiesse is another popular dermal filler used to smooth out wrinkles. It is unique in that it is the only calcium-based filler on the market. It also stimulates your own natural collagen to grow in the areas that are treated. Because it is thicker substance, it should not be used in the lips or tear troughs. Radiesse is a great option to restore lost volume in large areas such as the cheeks and the jawline. It is also great for patients that have deeper wrinkles and folds. Many patients prefer using Radiesse because results can last over a year.
