Sculptra and Radiesse are both considered biostimulators.
Biostimulator fillers are dermal fillers that stimulate collagen production to naturally improve your skin's texture, tone and overall health.
Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin. Collagen decreases with age by about 1.0%-1.5% per year.
Biostimulator fillers help replenish the lost collagen and elastin resulting in healthy, radiant skin.
Potential benefits of biostimulators include:
Sculptra helps gradually replace lost collagen.
It is formulated with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to help restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to smooth facial wrinkles and improve facial laxity.
Rather than an “overnight” effect, Sculptra is intended to be performed as a series of up to four injection sessions and can achieve results lasting for up to two full years.
Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHA. These particles integrate into the skin to create a scaffold, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
This results in the smoothing of lines and the promotion of a renewed skin structure for natural-looking results.
Radiesse results last about 15 months.
