Sculptra and Radiesse. What’s the Hype?

Skin Care / May 3, 2023

Sculptra and Hyperdilute Radiesse are great treatments to have your body stimulate your own collagen and elastin to help rejuvenate your face.  Once these products are injected, it takes a few months and often a few treatments over time to see a difference.  These treatments can also be used on different areas of the body to restore a youthful look. One of the most popular uses is in the buttocks for a non-surgical butt lift. Once a desired result is accomplished, the usual maintenance of these treatments is yearly.

Sculptra is made up of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic material that triggers the body’s inflammatory response and stimulates increased collagen production.  This treatment is great for those individuals who want a rejuvenated look but do not wish to have fillers quite yet.  Again, this process takes time to see results, but they do last 12-24 months, as opposed to filler which gives immediate results and typically lasts 12 months depending on the type of filler used and its rheology..
Radiesse is made up of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a biostimulator that activates fibroblasts to make more collagen. This is different from Sculptra since collagen is still produced without an inflammatory response.  These results can last over 12-24 months as well.
Both of these treatments produce collagen and treat lost volume which helps an individual look more youthful as well as improve the skin quality.  These treatments along with medical grade skincare can help individuals look more rested and rejuvenated even without the use of filler.  Come in to Vesper in Chicago for a consultation with one of our incredibly talented providers to see which treatment is best for you!  We can be reached at 773-360-8501, or our Instagram @vesper_chi
