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 versus Radiesse
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.

While Voluma may still be water-loving, it is designed with great lifting capacity, so it works exceptionally well in areas like the cheeks and won't give you a "fat" or "rounded" correction. As well, mid-face injections are deeper injections, so while you felt Radiesse may have given you nice angles, the product was placed at the same depth as Voluma would be, and both would essentially give similar correction, as both lift well.

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.
Comparing Voluma and Radiesse
Both Voluma and Radiesse are excellent, longer lasting fillers that can give nice lift and cheek definition. Voluma is a little more natural feeling, and can be dissolved by hyaluronidase if you weren't perfectly happy with it. I think Radiesse may lift a little more since its firmer, but both are great options. Best to speak with your dermatologist about the filler best for you. ~ Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
Voluma And Radiesse Work Well For Nonsurgical Cheek Augmentation
Since I have a satellite practice in Israel, where Voluma and blunt-tipped cannulas have been regulatory agency approved for many years already, in addition to my Upper East Side of Manhattan office, I have had the opportunity to be injecting Voluma routinely for many years. In my experience, it has proven to be an excellent and durable volumizing filler, particularly for cheek augmentation. Voluma imparts a very smooth look and has the advantage of being dissolved with hyaluronidase if necessary.
I find that Radiesse, which I have been using successfully for more than two decades imparts a slightly greater lift, and for this reason I prefer to use it, either alone or in combination with a hyaluronic acid volumizer, when performing The Nonsurgical 3D Vectoring Facelift or The Nonsurgical 3D Vectoring Necklift.
When appropriate, I sometimes combine both agents for nonsurgical cheek augmentation Consultation with a board certified aesthetic physician with long experience with the use of all available injectable fillers and volumizers is essential for tailoring the best choices to your particular needs.
