Sculptra® or radiesse®: which collagen stimulator is right for me? Spring hill, fl 1

Youthful skin starts from within! Collagen stimulators are volumizing agents that work by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production from within the skin to improve elasticity, texture and youthful appearance. Two of the most popular collagen-boosting injectable fillers proudly offered at Skintastic Med Spa are Sculptra® and Radiesse®.

While both treatments offer long-lasting, natural-looking results, they do so in different ways:

● How it’s made:
Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable substance which stimulates natural collagen production to help restore facial volume and firmness over time.
● Treatment areas: Sculptra is FDA approved to help smooth cheek wrinkles, chin wrinkles, marionette lines and nasolabial folds and improve overall skin quality.
● Number of sessions: Multiple sessions are typically required to achieve optimal results.
● Expected results: Sculptra provides gradual and subtle improvements to facial volume and smoothness as new collagen growth increases over time.
● Duration of results: Results can last up to two years.

● How it’s made: Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHA. It is the first and only CaHA injectable treatment in the U.S. FDA approved to provide immediate contouring plus stimulation of collagen and elastin production in the lower face and hands.
● Treatment areas: Radiesse is often used on the lower face to treat smile lines, the corners of the mouth, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds and chin wrinkles. It can also be used to enhance the appearance of hands and improve jawline contour.
● Number of sessions: Multiple sessions are typically required to achieve optimal results.
● Expected results: Radiesse helps smooth out lines and wrinkles immediately upon injection for natural-looking improvement.
● Duration of results: Results can last one year or more.
