How does Sculptra Work compared to other Dermal Fillers?

April 20, 2013

Sculptra® is a facial injectable that is made from poly-L-lactic acid. Other dermal fillers (such as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane etc.) are used for wrinkles, lines, and folds, Sculptra® works within the deep dermis to replace lost collagen. This gives your face a foundation that restores the look of fullness. Sculptra® is also very different than other fillers because it works gradually over a series of treatments, and the results generally last more than two years.

Sculptra® gives you subtle results over time, which some people prefer, whereas the other fillers I mentioned give you immediate results. With the advancement in dermal fillers, many of our patients are able to avoid the need for surgery. The best way for you to know which filler is appropriate for you is to have a consultation with your medical practitioner.
