Sculptra vs. Juvederm Voluma

Sculptra vs. Juvederm Voluma | Miami Medical Spa | Anti-AgingSculptra and Juvederm Voluma are powerful med spa dermal filler treatments to address facial loss of volume. The treatment provider will explain the distinctions between the two fillers and help the patient make the right choice. Tribeca Medaesthetics is a leading plastic surgery practice and medical spa providing these dermal fillers to patients in Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and surrounding locations.



Sculptra is a deeply effective cosmetic filler designed for facial lipoatrophy treatment. The filler received the FDA’s approval in 2004, and has been widely uses since then to treat loss of volume in the temples, eyes, lips, and cheeks. The key component of Sculptra filler gel is polylactic acid, which is a synthetic material used in various surgical products.

Polylactic acid mimics a natural derivative released by the muscles during exercise. No prior allergy tests are needed for Sculptra treatment because of its synthetic base. Individuals who are bothered by the sunken or depleted look of the cheeks, temples, or eyes or have thinning skin in these areas can receive dramatic improvement with Sculptra med spa dermal filler.

According to several studies conducted to test the effectiveness of Sculptra, as much as 40 percent increase in facial volume will be experienced with three to six treatment sessions of Sculptra injectable filler. Results can sustain for up to two years. The longevity of Sculptra stems from polylactic acid, which has collagen building properties. Fresh production of collagen restores volume in a natural and more sustainable manner.

Due to Sculptra’s ability to improve facial volume without surgery, it has been called ‘liquid facelift’. Tribeca Medaesthetics surgical practice and medical spa receives patients from Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and nearby areas for Sculptra.


Juvederm Voluma

Juvederm Voluma is a unique dermal filler with a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound in the human body, which helps to hold the skin tightly together. Juvederm Voluma has been designed in a way to add volume to hollow cheeks and create a fuller, rounder face.

Juvederm Voluma also holds the distinction of being the only injectable facial filler to have received the FDA’s approval specifically for the purpose of cheek volumizing. The treatment will help create facial contours and give a subtle lift to the cheeks. Results with Voluma can last for up to two years.

The filler gel contains lidocaine, which eliminates the need to separately apply a local anesthetic. An experienced and gifted filler provider will directly deliver the injections to the targeted areas of depleted volume. The gel will instantly give support to the cheeks, and help create a youthful curve and natural looking cheek contours within a few days.

Hyaluronic acid in Juvederm Voluma will help to make the facial skin tighter from inside out, and build firmness in the cheeks. The treatment is presently approved in 72 countries. Patient response to Juvederm Voluma has been overwhelmingly positive because of the filler’s ability to create more sustainable and reliable outcome.
