There are many different kinds of dermal fillers, including Juvederm and Radiesse. Both of these injections can be used to add fullness, fill in folds and wrinkles caused by the loss of collagen, and create new angles on the face. Juvederm and Radiesse aren’t the only substances that can be used for these purposes—many patients are able to achieve the same results with fat injections. To determine if any of these options is right for you, contact an experienced plastic surgeon at our practice today.
Where Can Juvederm, Radiesse, and Fat Injections Be Used?
Juvederm and Radiesse products are often injected into the neck, hands, and face, specifically in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. It is also safe to use Juvederm to plump up patients’ lips.
Fat can be injected in any area that has deep folds or appears to be sunken in. The fat will be taken from other areas on your body that have excess fat and then transferred to the area that is lacking volume. Many people inject fat into their cheeks, hands, and breasts.
How Much Do Juvederm, Radiesse, and Fat Injections Cost?
The prices of these injections will vary depending on the amount used, the location of the injections, and the doctor performing the injections. Fat injections will typically cost more than Juvederm and Radiesse because more work is involved with this treatment. Fortunately, we offer financing plans to make each procedure more affordable for patients.
How Long Does it Take to Recover After Juvederm, Radiesse, or Fat Injections?
You don’t have to worry about taking time off of work to recover after Juvederm or Radiesse injections. Side effects such as bruising or redness may appear at the site of the injection, but these symptoms can be treated with an ice pack. Many patients get these injections on their lunch breaks and return to work immediately after.
However, the recovery from fat injections is very different. It may take two to three weeks for the bruising and swelling to go down after fat injections. But, every case is different, so it’s important to go over recovery procedures with your surgeon.
How Long Do Juvederm, Radiesse, and Fat Injections Last?
Juvederm will last anywhere from six months to a year, while Radiesse should last for up to a year or more. If you choose to have fat injections, the results are mostly permanent.
