I Am Having Difficulty Deciding Between Sculptra and Radiesse Injections to Fill my Face

Sculptra vs Radiesse
Both are great products to add volume to the face. If I have a patient that has overall facial thinning, I tend to recommend Sculptra. And if I have a patient with just flat cheek bones and hollow temples, I recommend Radiesse. However, I may even recommend both products.
If a patient has very concave temples, they will realize their fullness immediately with Radiesse, but it may take several months to accomplish this goal with Sculptra.
If a facial volume defect is due to a flat cheekbone, I like cheek augmentation with Radiesse. However, I can accomplish the improvement in the cheekbones also with Sculptra, but again it will take several sessions.
It is difficult to be specific when I can not evaluate you in person, however as you can understand; we can use these products together or alone. I love working with both products and they can both be a good answer to correcting facial volume.
