As we age our skin loses elasticity causing it to wrinkle and sag instead of spring back into place. We also lose some of the fat that was previously keeping out faces look smooth and healthy. These effects are most noticeable around the eyes, nose, in the cheeks, and in and round the lips. To restore youth to your face and combat these effects, many people turn to Cosmetic Fillers such as Juvederm™ and Radiesse®.
Let’s take a quick look at the similarities and differences of Juvederm™ and Radiesse®:
