Cheeks Filler

Radiesse and Juvaderm are Mr./Dr. Ferrando’s favourite product for the treatment of volume loss in the cheeks, sagging skin and jowls. Radiesse, would be his preferred choice, as it not only restore fullness but it also stimulates the production of collagen, for a more youthful and glowing look.

Mr./Dr. Ferrando will discuss the best option for each individual case, during his consultation, however, Radiesse is definitely his recommended product to treat volume loss as it offer longer lasting results (12/24 months) compared to regular fillers, which last 3/6 months.

"Temporary fillers are absorbed by the body over time and are considered a much safer option than the permanent fillers. I have never used permanent fillers due to potential issues."

Understanding how we age

There is a fundamental difference in the way different ethnicities age.

People from African, African American/Caribbean backgrounds, will see the changes happening in the deeper layer of the skin structure, having much thicker skin, with increased pigmentation, as well as a much more boney structure.

Most patients with dark and thick skin, will experience the ageing process with changes occurring in the deeper layers of the skin structure, which typically does not effect the skin surface.

In Caucasian patients, many changes are seen externally, as well as in the deeper skin structure.

That’s why choosing the right filler for each individual is essential. The correct choice of filler will guarantee the best result possible.

Finding the right combination

A combination of Juvederm and Radiesse in Caucasian people is usually the recommended choice, in order to fill both deep and superficial areas of the face. This will correct the signs of ageing by adding volume, which consequently, eliminates the visible wrinkles on the skin’s surface.

Radiesse is a very good choice for most of patients with darker pigmentation, such as African-American/Caribbean.

It is a much more dense filler, which provides a better option when needing to add volume to thicker skin.

Radiesse differs from other fillers as it is replaced by the body and turned into collagen, the substance of youth.

Dr Ferrando is highly experienced with this procedure. He has been holding many courses and he has been teaching other Doctors how to inject fillers and Botox safely for the most famous brands such as Allergan and Merz for over thirty years.


RADIESSE® is an opaque, white colored dermal filler made up of CaHA microspheres in a water based gel.

RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). It is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.

It is an excellent filler which is ideal to treat loss of volume which causes sagging cheeks, jowls and it is a also ideal to define the jawline.

RADIESSE® is non-animal based and free from animal protein filler. It’s main ingredient is Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a substance that is naturally in the body, CaHA is part of what makes up bone and teeth.


Once injected into the skin, it works by stimulating the collagen production, resulting in outstanding skin improvements, within a few days of being administered.

Compared to other fillers used to treat similar areas, which only last 3/6 months, RADIESSE® offers longer lasting results, 12/18 months for up to 24 months and its benefits can sometimes be seen for up to 30 months after the injection.

Once injected, mild swelling and bruising may occur, and the final RADIESSE® result can be seen after 10 days.

What is Juvederm?

Juvéderm® from Allergan is a range of smooth consistency gels which are injected to restore volume, fine lines, wrinkles and folds and redefine lips (Lip Enhancement) The smooth consistency is due to it’s advanced formulation.

As we age the hyaluronic acid (HA) content of our skin-which is important for water retention-decreases. Oil-producing glands become less active and skin becomes drier.

The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth. The skin loses its youthful colour and glow. Unlike other fillers, Juvéderm® is not granular which means that it is able to flow easily into the skin. This results in a smooth and natural appearance.

It comes in a range of different strengths depending on the individual case.

Mr Ferrando has been using Dermal Fillers for many years and believes that Juvéderm® products are superior to other products on the market. He will always use the best advanced aesthetic treatments for his patients.

Juvéderm® fillers can be completed in as little as 15 min and also contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic which helps to make the treatment process more comfortable.

The duration of the effect depends on age, how much filler is injected, where it’s placed and the quality of the skin. With the Juvéderm® range, however, the beneficial effects can be expected to last up to one year after treatment.
