Radiesse vs Sculptra – which is better?

I have used radiasse in the area of my chin and marionette lines. Would sculptra be a better choice for this area?

Okay wonderful readers – you have to give me your ages!!  The answer to this really depends on your age and the depth of the crease. Sculptra can be a great solution but don’t rule out the higher molecular weight Juvederm/Perlane either.  Just saw a patient today who had another doctor inject Radiesse and it’s pretty much gone 4 months later.  It’s not as predictable in it’s longevity as the company would like you to believe.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
