What is a good option for something in place of Sculptra? What are the alternatives?

Fat injections are the best option as an alternative to Sculptra injections. I even consider fat injections first before Facial Fillers. Nothing is better than using your own tissues for plastic surgery purposes.  You have essentially no risk for reactions, no risk for cancer, no toxicity from your own tissues. Sculptra is made up of suture material. It is a foreign substance that is essentially broken down into carbon dioxide and glucose and ultimately carbon dioxide and water.  Other ways of filling is through silicone implants. The problem areas for implants and Sculptra is the periorbital area.  Implants are also hard to use for the buccal area where there is no bone for the implant to rest on.  It is here that Sculptra can be used and Fat injections.
