What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a dermal filler that helps to stimulate collagen production, resulting in a more youthful-looking complexion. It works by boosting your body's natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps keep your skin youthful and firm, but your body produces less as you age.

Unlike other fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra works gradually over time. This is because Sculptra is made up of poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible substance that helps to promote collagen production. As collagen production increases, your skin's texture and elasticity will improve, resulting in a more youthful, radiant complexion.

Who is a Good Candidate for Sculptra?

Sculptra suits many candidates looking to address facial volume loss, wrinkles, and fine lines. The ideal candidate for Sculptra is typically someone who:

  • Is in good overall health to minimize the risk of complications
  • Has mild to moderate facial volume loss in areas such as the cheeks, temples, and chin
  • Is not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Is not allergic to any of the ingredients in Sculptra

What to Expect During Treatment

Sculptra is injected into the skin in several treatments, usually spaced four to six weeks apart. The number of treatments you need will depend on your needs and goals.

During the procedure, our Top Injector will inject Sculptra into the areas of your face that need volume. The injections may cause discomfort, but we can use a topical anesthetic to minimize pain. After the injections, you can return to your normal activities right away.

Results and Maintenance

Sculptra is designed to provide long-lasting results, with many patients experiencing improvements for up to two years or more. While the results of Sculptra are not immediate, you may start to see improvements in your skin's texture and firmness after a few weeks, with full results appearing gradually over several months.

Following a proper maintenance plan is essential to ensure the best possible results from your Sculptra treatment. This may include:

  • Periodic touch-up treatments to maintain your results
  • A good skin care regimen to keep your skin healthy and hydrated
  • Avoiding sun exposure
  • Maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle
