One vial of Sculptra vs a syringe of HA filler
The vial of Sculptra is equivalent to about 4 syringes of an HA filler. The duration is also significantly longer, 2-3 years vs 12 months. It becomes a very cost effective method to fill a poorly volumized person. I believe the improvement with Sculptra lasts longer than the 2 years touted by the company. 2 years is when the study was stopped. Newly created collagen lasts for 7 years. However, the aging process continues and the fill needs touching up every 12-18 months.
At my practice in NYC and Ohio we get 9 syringes of product from one vial of Sculptra. The treatment takes about 30 minutes plus about 30 minutes for our numbing cream to work. Most clients get 2 vials per treatment and do the treatment 2-3 times, spaced about 6 weeks apart. We price it at $699 a vial. In terms of product per $, it is a great value compared to say Voluma, but achieves a different purpose. If you have a skinny face, Sculptra may be a good option. Hard to say without seeing your pictures or seeing you in person.
Sculptra and Results
Sculptra is an excellent long lasting product after receiving full correction. There are usually three (3cc) syringes of Sculptra for one vial of Sculptra. This amount is also dependent on how it was diluted. It is an art and the time takes depending on the technique is done. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
