Many individuals think twice about going under the knife even if they want to have some changes made to how they look. These second thoughts relating to cosmetic surgery are quite understandable since with plastic or cosmetic surgery, the costs are higher, there are more risks, and the time for recuperation takes a lot longer.
The great thing is that men and women now have more options when it comes to improving their looks. Now, a person who wants to look younger can opt for various cosmetic procedures that do not require them to go under the knife.
One good example of a cosmetic procedure that does not require surgery is the use of dermal filler injections to look younger. Dermal filler injections come in various brands and two of the most popular are Restylane and Radiesse. These injections have their own qualities but both of them, more or less, help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the face instantly.
If you are interested in turning back the clock a little and looking younger with a fresher, more youthful complexion, then there are plenty of injectable options available to you and your medical cosmetic practitioner. There is an interesting debate raging at the moment about which of the two main fillers, Restylane or Radiesse, is better. Here are the basic similarities and differences between Restylane and Radiesse so you can make a better choice for you.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that can fill out facial lines. Aside from filling in the facial lines and giving a fuller volume to your skin, this injectable works a little differently from other dermal fillers in that it encourages your own natural collagen production for a firmer and more supple skin. Many patients are happy with this particular brand specifically because the results can be long-lasting, up to a year after your treatment.
Restylane is a dermal filler that can help to smooth out the lines on the face, give you fuller lips or even revitalise your skin, depending on which Restylane product is used. Instead of stimulating the body to produce more collagen, this particular injectable filler is based on hyaluronic acid. This is the substance that closely resembles the hyaluronic acid in the human body. It has been used by over ten million patients worldwide ever since it was introduced in the market in 1996 and has an excellent safety profile.
So how do you choose between Restylane and Radiesse?
Because Radiesse and Restylane are administered by specially trained aesthetic nurses and cosmetic doctors, you would be best advised to go to a practitioner who is experienced with both of these brands and seek their advice. They can fully assess the condition of your skin, and make their recommendation based on their findings.
