Sculptra vs. Ultherapy

Sculptra vs. Ultherapy | Anti-Aging Injectable | Miami Medical SpaA wide range of non-surgical anti-aging facial and body contouring med spa procedures are available today to restore a more youthful appearance. Sculptra injectable dermal filler and ultrasound based Ultherapy are two such proven and effective procedures. Tribeca Medaesthetics is a leading surgical practice and medical spa providing such treatments to patients in Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and surrounding locations.



Sculptra is one of the most effective injectable treatments for facial anti-aging. This advanced filler procedure is designed to treat deep wrinkles and creases in the face, lift sagging skin in the mid face, and boost facial volume. It is particularly effective in volumizing sunken temples, cheeks, eyes, and lips. Sculptra is a highly powerful dermal filler, which should only be administered by an expert at a qualified med spa.

The FDA approved Sculptra in 2004 for treating facial lipoatrophy. Ever since then, Sculptra has been used to reverse the signs of facial aging with safe and predictable results. The chief ingredient of Sculptra is polylactic acid, which has been used for decades in various surgical products. It is a synthetic material that mimics a natural derivative produced by the muscles during exercise.

Clinical studies have revealed that patients can experience up to 40 percent increase in facial volume following three to six treatment sessions with Sculptra injections. Results can last for as many as 24 months with this treatment. The collagen supporting properties of Sculptra enable it to rebuild areas that have been drained of volume, and make the treatment more sustainable.

Sculptra is popularly nicknamed as ‘liquid facelift’ because of its ability to improve facial volume without surgery. Tribeca Medaesthetics is a leading surgical practice and medical spa receiving patients from Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and nearby areas for Sculptra.



Ultherapy is the first and only non-invasive procedure that has been cleared by the FDA specifically for cosmetic skin lift. The procedure can be applied in face, neck and décolletage, apart from some other areas. It can firm up sagging skin and provide structural skin support to create a more youthful, rejuvenated look without any cuts, incisions, lasers, or injections.

Ultherapy is an ideal solution for people seeking tighter, smoother, and lifted skin without surgery. A single treatment session with Ultherapy can produce significant improvement in the skin appearance. The procedure involves the delivery of ultrasound energy in targeted and controlled manner, which does not cause any harm to the surrounding tissue.

The ultrasound energy penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate new collagen. Therefore, the results with Ultherapy are more sustainable and natural looking. The treatment will also improve the skin tone and texture, and address the effects of sun damage. The procedure does not require any anesthesia and involves very little to no downtime.

In recent years, medical researchers have also found Ultherapy to be an effective procedure for buttock lift. Targeted doses of ultrasound energy are delivery in the innermost layers of the skin, just as a butt lift surgery. It can create tighter, lifted, and more youthful looking buttocks.
