Sculptra® and Radiesse® Injections in Toronto at Kingsway Dermatology
At Kingsway Dermatology, we’re proud to be your trusted skin care partner in Toronto. Our experts will ensure you get the beautiful and natural results you deserve from our premier cosmetic dermatology services.
For rejuvenated, firmer skin, we offer advanced dermal fillers known as collagen biostimulators. Two of these, Sculptra® and Radiesse®, promote the growth of collagen and skin-firming proteins long after the day of injection. Collagen builders require minimal downtime and can be used in many different areas to help you achieve your ideal look.
Both Radiesse® and Sculptra® work by triggering the skin’s natural healing processes, resulting in the formation of collagen — the protein that keeps our skin firm and bouncy. Collagen diminishes as we age, but these dermal fillers can boost its production to fill lost volume, leading to a refreshed and naturally youthful looking appearance. And because they work on a deeper biological level, the results typically last longer than hyaluronic acid-based fillers!

Both Radiesse® and Sculptra® take only minutes to inject. Sculptra® typically requires multiple sessions spaced one month apart, so make sure to continue attending the appointments in your sequence to get the best results. Regardless of which filler you choose, both require minimal downtime and only cause some minor swelling or bruising. Following your treatments, we also recommend avoiding sunlight and gently icing the area if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Sculptra<sup>®</sup>?
Sculptra® contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic substance that the body absorbs over time. The injection causes an inflammatory response to trigger collagen production and thicken the area for more resilient, taut skin. Because the filler creates collagen around the injected areas, Sculptra® can be used to gently shape the face, with results lasting for up to 24 months.
What is Radiesse<sup>®</sup>?
Radiesse® is an injectable filler that contains a gel base filled with microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite — a structurally similar substance of the one that forms our bones and teeth. This filler activates the immune response to stimulate collagen production around the injection site. Because Radiesse® is non-inflammatory, the calcium microspheres are embedded into the skin and act as a scaffold for collagen and elastin to form around.
Who Can Perform Sculptra<sup>®</sup> or Radiesse<sup>®</sup> Injections?
For a safe and effective treatment, as well as optimal results, Sculptra® and Radiesse® should only be administered by licensed and experienced professionals, like the ones at Kingsway Dermatology. We’ll work with you to analyze your facial structure and see where the filler will work best. We’ll then craft a customized treatment plan just for you to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
First, we’ll mark the treatment areas, clean the spots we intend to inject, and administer the filler. You may feel some slight pain, but for many, the injection is nearly imperceptible. If you’re undergoing Sculptra® treatments, we’ll discuss the frequency of your injections with you to make sure you get maximum results.
How Long Do Radiesse<sup>®</sup> and Sculptra<sup>®</sup> Last?
Sculptra® can last for up to 24 months after your treatment is completed, whereas Radiesse® typically lasts for up to one year. To extend the duration of your results, follow-up treatments can also be administered.
Are They My Only Option?
While both fillers are highly effective at delivering gorgeous results, they can be combined with other procedures and injectables as well. Our team will discuss what the most effective options for you are based upon your unique facial anatomy and desired results.
