If you are considering dermal fillers to help address signs of facial ageing, it can be overwhelming with all of the options currently available. Today we want to talk about a popular choice which is used by clients here at The SKN Bar in Nashville called SCULPTRA.

SCULPTRA is a unique filler that helps to stimulate collagen production over time, but how does it compare to other dermal fillers currently in the market and which one is right for you? We’ll compare SCULPTRA to other popular fillers to help you make an informed decision


SCULPTRA is a type of dermal filler that is made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) a substance that has been used in medicine for a number of years. Unlike other fillers, it begins to work immediately in adding volume to the skin. This gives you results that not only restore volume but improve skin texture gradually. Results are more natural looking and longer lasting with results lasting up to 2 years in some cases.

How does SCULPTRA compare to other fillers?


Juvéderm is a popular filler similar to SCULPTRA where it works immediately to add volume to the skin but the drawback is that the effects of the treatment only last up to a year. It is a great choice for patients who want to address wrinkles and lines in specific areas of the face, such as lips or cheeks!


Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler that works similarly to Juvéderm. It provides immediate volume to the skin and is often used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose area. The effects of Restylane usually can last up to 18 months.


Radiesse which is a dermal filler made from hydroxylapatite, a mineral naturally found in bones is often used to address deeper wrinkles and lines. It can also be used for hand rejuvenation, but its effects typically only last up to 1 year. It does however work immediatly and adds volume to the skin.

Which filler is right for you?

The choice between SCULPTRA and other dermal fillers ultimately depends on your individual needs and goals. If you're looking for a filler that provides immediate results and is best for specific areas of the face, hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm or Restylane may be a good choice. If you want longer-lasting, natural-looking results that gradually improve over time, SCULPTRA may be a better option. Additionally, if you're looking to address deeper wrinkles or lines, Radiesse may be the best choice.
