Silicone 1000 vs silicone 5000?

I'm researching silicone micro droplet technique for cheek augmentation. I know silicone 5000 has a higher viscosity than silicone 1000. Does silicone 5000 produce a harder more money augmentation? And silicone 1000 a softer more fatty augmentation?

Silicone problems in the face

I remove silicone from the face. I would not suggest either product for tissue augmentation.
