Fillers and Sculptra

Fillers and Sculptra have revolutionized the field of aesthetics, offering individuals a non-invasive way to enhance their appearance and achieve a more youthful look. With advancements in cosmetic medicine, these treatments have become increasingly popular among men and women seeking to address common signs of aging, such as wrinkles, volume loss, and sagging skin.
The Aesthetic Edit explores the differences and benefits of fillers and Sculptra with every client and how they can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Whether you’re looking for a quick fix or long-lasting results, understanding these carefully selected treatments can empower you to make informed decisions about your beauty journey.

What are Fillers, and How Do They Work?

Fillers are injectable substances that restore volume and fullness to various areas of the face.
They can be made from calcium hydroxylapatite, hyaluronic acid, and poly-L-lactic acid. Calcium hydroxylapatitie and hyaluronic acid are made by the body. Poly-L-lactic acid doesn’t naturally occur in the body, but it is made from a substance that does, D-lactate, so it’s compatible with the body.
By injecting fillers into the skin, the appearance of wrinkles and creases can be reduced or eliminated. In addition to these benefits, fillers can be used to augment the proportions of the face and profile resulting in a more balanced and harmonious appearance. This is often referred to as ‘facial balancing” and can create a substantial change in one’s appearance.”
When fillers are injected into the skin, they add volume and stimulate collagen production. Our bodies produce less collagen as we age, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles.
For those wanting a fuller pout and a more youthful appearance, filler can be injected into the lips to provide a plump, pillowy pout. They can also help improve the undereye area by restoring volume lost to bags, dark circles, and wrinkles.

What is Sculptra and How Does it Work?

Sculptra is a type of filler that is used to restore lost facial volume and promote collagen growth. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that is compatible with the body.
This leads to gradual but noticeable improvements in facial volume, texture, and overall appearance over time. Unlike other fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra produces a subtle yet long-lasting rejuvenation effect as new collagen forms gradually over several months.

Benefits of Sculptra

Youthful Appearance
Sculptra offers a range of benefits that can help you achieve a youthful and refreshed appearance. This filler stimulates natural collagen production, maintaining soft, supple skin. Our collagen levels decrease as we age, leading to wrinkles and sagging. By promoting collagen production, Sculptra can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, restore volume to hollowed face areas, and improve skin texture.
Long-lasting Results
Unlike some other fillers that require regular touch-ups, Sculptra provides long-lasting results. After undergoing several treatments spaced several weeks apart, you can enjoy the benefits for up to two years. This makes it an excellent choice if you’re seeking a budget-friendly option or prefer minimal maintenance.
Natural-looking Enhancement
Sculptra delivers incredibly natural-looking results when done by a skilled professional who understands facial anatomy and aesthetics. The gradual improvement allows for subtle enhancements over time rather than drastic changes overnight. You’ll appear more youthful and vibrant without anyone suspecting you’ve had work done.

Target Areas of Sculptra and Filler

Sculptra is a versatile filler that can be used to address several different areas of the face. Here are some common target areas:


Sculptra and fillers can be injected into the cheeks to restore volume and create a more youthful, lifted appearance. It helps to replace lost collagen and adds structure to the midface.


By injecting Sculptra or fillers along the jawline, it can create definition and improve the overall contour of the face. This non-surgical technique is popular for those desiring a more defined and sculpted jawline.


The temples often lose volume as we age, leading to hollowing or an aged appearance in this area. Sculptra or filler injections help restore volume in this region, resulting in a smoother and more rejuvenated look.

Nasolabial Folds

These are called smile lines or laugh lines, which form from natural facial expressions over time. Adding Sculptra or fillers can soften these folds by volumizing them while promoting collagen production for long-lasting results.

Marionette Lines

Also known as puppet lines, they extend downward from the corners of your mouth towards your chin, giving you an aged look. Injecting Sculptra or fillers into this area can help fill out these deeper wrinkles.

Cost of Sculptra

The cost of fillers and Sculptra is affected by geographical location and who is providing the service. It is important to note that while Sculptra may initially seem more expensive compared to other dermal fillers, its long-lasting effects can make it a cost-effective option in the long run.
