It is important to be aware that Sculptra is not an instant filler, but a collagen stimulator, improvement will be slow and progressive for up to 6 months after your last session.
Juvederm Voluma is specifically formulated to correct volume loss and enhance contour to the mid cheek area creating a subtle lift.
It is safe to use both products at the same time just keep in mind they work best for different concerns.
Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see which option is best for you and how many sessions you would need.

Topping Sculptra with Voluma
At this point it would be appropriate for another Sculptra session or you could "top off" with Voluma. Voluma isn't used in all the same areas as Sculptra, but there is no reason the appropriate areas can't be supplemented with the Voluma filler. (Voluma does create beautiful cheekbones instantly, but usually requires multiple syringes, so don't expect a single syringe to re-contour all areas of your face.)
Although studies show a 24 month longevity for Voluma. please be mindful that everyone has a different metabolic rate and some people will see fillers last a long time, while others experience a shorter effective period.
If you have confidence in your doctor, I would definitely allow her/him to continue to recommend the best option.
Sculptra AND Voluma
In my experience, Voluma and Sculptra are very complementary.
Voluma is a long duration HA (hyaluronic acid) gel filler, rated to last 2 years. It is indicated by the FDA for use in the cheeks but is often off-label used to add volume in the temples and along other hollows and folds of the face.
Sculptra, falls under the FDA filler category and indicated for soft-tissue fill. It works more like a simulator of the bodies own collagen, elastin and other HA like substances in the dermis. It provides firming and thickening of the skin, fascia and possibly building bone too.
Layered artfully, these two injectibles provide terrific satisfaction. Immediate improvement is seen with Voluma and other HA fillers. Skin firming with skin texture improvements is created with Sculptra for 2 years and more but takes 6-12 weeks of serial injections to obtain its optimal results.
For the patient who do not require or desire redraping due to facial skin laxity or sagging, this combination works wonderfully.
Please consult with a well experienced, Board Certified Facial Injector who provides a full spectrum of options for you to understand and choose from.
All the best!
