We are always looking for the best and longest lasting non-surgical filler and volumizer. Sculptra and Juvederm Voluma are now offering the longest lasting effects, for 2 years, but are very different from each other.
Sculptra: The Collagen Stimulator
Sculptra is in a class all its own as it is NOT a filler. Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that is injected throughout the face. Its goal is to bring volume in the entire face and in very targeted areas such as the temples, cheeks, nasal folds and jowls. It is done in a series of 2-4 sessions done 6 weeks apart. Here’s the kicker with Sculptra, it takes over 4-6 months to see the results. But the results are beautifully natural, gradual and subtle. Think of seeding your grass and waiting for the grass to populate your entire lawn. It takes time to see small increments of growth occur gradually and eventually make your lawn look luscious and full. Sculptra essentially is seeding your face to bring volume, fullness, firmness and a smooth refreshed appearance. Each day that goes by you look better and better. The Scuptra effects lasts more than 2 years once you have received all the sessions and you appear younger as each day goes by.
Sculptra can be used with other fillers like Perlane and Juvederm which are hylauronic gel fillers that give you instant results. Why use both? Because while you are waiting for the effects of Sculptra to stimulate your collagen, the Perlane and Juvederm can give you immediate results until the Sculptra comes to its full effects.
Juvederm Voluma: The Hylauronic Filler for the Mid-Face
The newest hylauronic filler, Juvederm Voluma is the newest generation of the Juvederm series of fillers. It is designed as a very thick gel filler that is best suited for the mid-face or the upper cheek area lasting up to 2 years. It creates a beautiful apple effect in the cheek that women are often seeking. For women desiring fillers in their nasal folds, marionettes and lips than Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm Ultra Plus are your best candidates as fillers. All these fillers have the appropriate thickness for these areas of the face.
