Sculptra Versus Juvederm Voluma
This has very similar results to Juvederm Voluma. Whilst, Juvederm Voluma instantly corrects volume in the face, Sculptra is more gradual and requires more than one treatment. Three treatments of Sculptra usually equate to roughly the same price as one Juvederm Voluma treatment; the main difference is how quickly results appear and whether you want to spread the cost of your treatments.
Some patients find it more affordable to opt for the gradual Sculptra treatments, whereas others prefer to pay for Juvederm Voluma in one go and receive the results straight away.
It should store at temperatures up to 30℃. After reconstitution, it can be store for up to 72 hours at refrigeration (2-8℃) or room temperature up to 30℃. Do not freeze.
It recommends to use a 26G needle (obtain separately and not include) for injection.
