I've had radiesse injected into my cheeks, with the apple placed more laterally to produce a look which gave my face definition and angularity. Radiesse seemed to give me more of a bony augmentation because the filler is harder. I was wondering if voluma is capable of giving me enhanced cheekbones as radiesse did. I am worried that because of its hydrophilic nature, it will look more like a fatty augmentation and round my face.
Voluma vs Radiesse?

Voluma vs Radiesse
Radiesse has advantages as well. Radiesse is more volumizing and gives a better mid face lift because of the viscosity of the product. It also emulates bony augmentation better than Voluma though Implants would be a better option in the long run. To achieve the same result as Radiesse, it seems an individual may need slightly more Voluma for the same effect though for bony augmentation, such as weak cheeks or chin, Radiesse will still be the favorite. Unfortunately, you can't reverse it if you don't like it which is why fewer practitioners offer it but Radiesse can really lift moderate to severely sagging skin (no injectable product can give the same result as a facelift in these individuals) better and more cost effectively than Voluma.

Both Radiesse and Voluma are excellent facial volumizers. They both volumize the cheeks very well. Voluma claims to last up to 2 years when adequate amounts are used. More important than which filler is used will be who you choose as your aesthetic injecting physician. Good luck and be well.

Voluma vs Radiesse
Radiesse is a biostimulator that will create collagen. It demonstrates both an immediate and long term result. Radiesse is a firm filler and can be injected into nasal labial folds as well as used in the cheeks and other portions of the face.
Volumna is only FDA approved for use in the cheek area. It can be used off label in other area of the face, however. Voluma is a reversible filler which can be removed.
Both fillers are products which an injector should consider in their toolbox to help add volume to the face.
