There are so many cosmetic products on the market today that, quite frankly, it’s easy for a person to get overwhelmed. And what makes the situation more challenging is the fact that there are multiple products that to do virtually the exact same thing. So the question is, how do you distinguish one product from another?

For example, what is the difference between Radiesse® vs Restylane®? Both of these products are dermal fillers, yet each of them is designed to work in a specific area.

Many cosmetic professionals will only use Radiesse® when they are addressing nasolabial folds. When compared to Juvederm® or Restylane®, Radiesse® has been shown to last longer. The downside is that because of the way it is formulated, it needs to be injected deeper into the treated area to produce the desired effects.

Some cosmetic professionals prefer Restylane® because it is a hyaluronic acid filler. Although the gel is made in a laboratory, it is made of a substance that is found naturally in the human skin. The results are softer and more natural.

Something that cosmetic experts and many patients also like about using Restylane® is that its results are reversible. A medical professional can give you an injection, and if you want to change anything about the way your face looks after the injection, the expert can reverse the treatment in a matter of minutes.

Really, you can make a lot of comparisons between the pros and cons of Radiesse® vs Restylane®. However, at the end of the day, it’s up to the cosmetic professional and you as a patient to determine which dermal filler you feel is right for you.

Something that you will see consistently when you talk to cosmetic professionals is that they all agree that both Restylane® and Radiesse® are high-quality products. They have seen positive results in their patients by using these products.

One thing that is more important than the dermal filler that you use is the training and the skill of the cosmetic professional who applies it. In the hands of an untrained surgeon, even the best dermal filler can produce poor results.
