How Does Sculptra® Work?
Unlike many other facial fillers on the market, Sculptra® isn’t a liquid or gel substance that diminishes lines by pushing up the dermis space beneath areas that are injected. Sculptra® is designed to stimulate your own body’s collagen development. The results appear gradually over the treatment regimen, typical treatment is a course of three injections over three to four months with results lasting up to two years.
Approved by the FDA, Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid used as an injectable facial filler. It temporarily restores volume to the mid-face. That means filling out those wrinkles around your nose and on your cheeks.
