The biggest difference between Radiesse and Juvederm is what the gels are made of.

How are Belotero Balance vs Juvederm different? While Belotero Balance and Juvederm are both hyaluronic acid-based fillers that can be used to increase volume in the face and lips, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and folds, the formulations have distinct differences that produce differing results. Belotero is monophasic and double cross-linked, which gives it a lower viscosity than Juvederm.
