Sculptra Injections are not the only treatments that can be administered for collagen loss. Another common and viable option is Juvederm and it is important to know your options and the differences between them.
How quickly does it work?
While Juvederm is a treatment where the results are immediately noticeable, Sculptra is a slower progressing treatment that results in a gradually noticeable change, occurring slowly, over several months.
Juvederm filler results last somewhere in the 6-9 month range, leading to a more frequent need for injection, whereas Sculptra Injections last typically up to 2 years.
Where would you apply it?
Juvederm is commonly used to fill in creases around the mouth or to fill out and plump areas in the lips that have lost volume. Sculptra is primarily used in the cheeks where volume has decreased over time.
Both treatments are equally priced by volume, however, Sculptra will require more time and money upfront, as multiple injections are required. Since Juvederm only lasts 6-9 months, more visits will be required, and eventually will cost more over time.
