Improve nasolabial lines, marionette lines, loose cheeks, and jaw lines, fill the temples, smooth tear grooves, tighten parotid glands, look forward to the long-lasting effect, and increase facial collagen.
Although both hyaluronic acid and Sculptra share the same functionality of filling the places, their principles are quite different.
Hyaluronic acid is used as a physical filler to fill the depression; the postoperative result is immediate, but the maintenance time is relatively short. Regular injections are required.
Sculptra stimulates the production of collagen in the deep layers of the skin and stimulates cell viability. The effect is slowly reflected and the result is more natural and longer lasting. At the same time, Sculptra is aimed at the lifting and firming of all the skin on the face.
Both have the effect of wrinkle removal, and it takes some time after the treatment to show the effect. Sculptra takes about 2-3 weeks, and Botox takes around 7-10 days. In terms of maintenance time, Sculptra has a longer result.
Sculptra achieves the function of wrinkle removal by stimulating collagen proliferation. This means that it is suitable for fine lines and depressions caused by aging to improve the state of the skin from a deep level.
Botox achieves the effect of wrinkle removal by blocking the conduction of nerves to the muscles, so it is more suitable for dynamic expression lines and reduces the production of fine lines from relaxed facial muscles.
