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.
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.
Radiesse vs Voluma
Voluma can be used in the mid to lateral cheek for enhancement and to provide definition. The hyaluronic acid in Voluma is not hydrophilic, therefore the chance of receiving a “puffy” appearance is minimized. Both Voluma and Radiesse have lifting capabilities that are seen with small amounts of product. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is not able to be reversed. Both products last around 18-24 months.
Hope you found this answer helpful. All the best!

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.

Voluma vs. Radiesse
Voluma or Radiesse?
Hi there! Voluma and Radiesse both work perfectly though Voluma may have better advantages than Radiesse. So you may know about Voluma better… Voluma may be used if you are looking for enhancement in the mid to lateral part of the cheeks. On the contrary, Voluma does not have a hydrophilic nature. With this, there will be minimized puffiness. Voluma’s effect could last for a couple of years and if the result is not desirable, it can be easily reversed. Voluma also causes little to no swelling and bruising for the most part.
With all that said, I would highly recommend that you discuss this with your doctor personally. Sometimes no matter how good a product is based on what patients and doctors say, your attending doctor will be the one to help you decide whether a specific product will be best for you. This is because he or she will be giving you a thorough assessment through physical exam. This way, he or she will be able to determine which product will work best on your facial structure and desired goals. Do not be afraid to consult your doctor about your concerns.
It is always the best option to get a consultation, before you commit to getting anything done. What might be right for you, might not be right for someone else, and vice versa. Your provider will recommend the best product for YOU, whether it be Voluma, Radiesse, etc. As an experienced provider, I can attest that is a safe and effective treatment when applied by a trained professional. While it takes 2-10 days for the swelling to go down, depending on the area, the results are long-lasting. Most clients need 1-2 syringes for a dramatic effect, but some require more. This depends on the amount of product you need to achieve your desired look. Any facial enhancement requires a great deal of precision and skill and can really alter the balance of your face when done poorly. Be wary of pricing that is overly discounted. If you have questions or concerns after your appointment, it is recommended that you contact your provider as soon as possible! Best of luck!
