Radiesse vs Artefill for Jawline Contouring
I have had great experience with Radiesse in scuplting the jawline, especially the jaw angles. Up to now, it has been thre most reliable filler for creating a sharp jaw angle. It has great thickness much like paste, but doesn't seem to last long enough.
I have heard that you are a fan of Artefill.
However, in an earlier post on here, you mention that for BONE CONTOURING, such as the jawline, jaw angles, or cheek bones, you prefer RADIESSE ?? Is this true, in terms of your opinion ?
The reason ARTEFILL seems interesting is that it's permanent. Can it match or surpass RADIESSE in terms of CONTOURING of the BONE STRUCTURE in the face, in areas such as the jawline, jaw angle, and cheek bone / malar area ?
yeah, i've used both radiesse and artefill for the jawline and i have better results with radiesse. the line is sharper and the effect is more predictable with radiesse. i think that you should continue with radiesse for now, until a better permanent filler comes on the market (which should be within the next 6 months or so).
in a pinch, i will use artefill for these areas, but i will make sure that the patient knows that i cannot get the same sharpness, and they will have to come back for multiple touch up sessions as the artefill builds up.
hope that helps
