In brief: They are different

Restylane (dermal fillers) is a filler and the results are immediate, and last about 4-6 months.
Sculptra not a filler per se, it's a collagen stimulator and the collagen your body produces is what ultimately fills the wrinkles, after about 3 sessions, 4-6 weeks apart. The results are not immediate, it may take about 1-2 months to see the results, then, it may last up to 2 years.

In brief: Fillers

Restylane (dermal fillers) and Sculptra are both fillers that may be used for cosmetic reasons.
Restylane (dermal fillers) is temporary and lasts 6-9 months and can be removed easily. Sculptra lasts longer but is difficult to remove.
