Sculptra vs LanLuma: The Next Generation is Here

Sculptra vs LanLuma: The Next Generation is Here

Improving collagen is the key for people who want to restore natural vitality, elasticity, and a youthful appearance to the skin.


Collagen is the most common protein in our bodies. It is the building block of our skin, keeping it plump and youthful. Over time our bodies produce less and less collagen, resulting in sunken skin, lines and wrinkles.


Collagen loss as we age is, unfortunately, inevitable, although lifestyle factors can have an impact on how quickly our levels decline. A high sugar diet, excessive alcohol, sun exposure and drug use all increase the rate at which our collagen levels fall.


Many topical treatments claim to plump up the skin and replace collagen but often they do not go deeply enough.


The Next Generation of Product: LanLuma

Since 1999 people have been appreciating the benefits to their skin’s appearance of injections of Poly-L -Lactic acid to encourage collagen production where you need it most on the face and body.


The treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, cellulite and proving extra volume to the contours of your body. Studies have proven that this treatment is, “associated with long-lasting efficiency, a high level of patient satisfaction and a good safety profile.”


A natural, more youthful appearance is the result.


Sculptra has long been providing excellent results but the arrival of LanLuma is taking this treatment to the next level.

Sessions and Results

As with any investment it is important to consider the how long it will take to see results and how long those results will last.

Sculptra requires three sessions over the course of three to four months whereas LanLuma needs only 1-3 sessions greatly reducing appointments and time commitments.

With both products, results appear gradually over a few months, however it is in the longevity of those results that LanLuma leaves Sculptra standing.

Sculptra results last up to 2 years, yet with the latest technology and research developments LanLuma results can last much longer: between 3 – 5 years.

LanLuma is the perfect solution and value for money

The strength of a product affects the practicalities of administration as well as the cost. LanLuma comes in larger quantities and requires fewer vials. LanLuma V, for use on face, neck and smaller areas is 210 mg (1 vial). LanLuma X, suitable for larger body areas, such as the buttocks, is 630 mg (1 vial). Sculptra is 150mg per vial – a lot less.

LanLuma is more cost effective as fewer vials are required.
