What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a unique FDA-approved biostimulatory filler, similar to Radiesse and Bellafill. It stimulates your own collagen production, setting it apart from other treatments that only address surface issues. This approach means you might enjoy more natural and longer-lasting results, up to 3–5 times the duration of regular fillers and toxins such as Botox and Juvederm.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra is composed of biocompatible and biodegradable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a substance that collaborates with your body to encourage collagen generation, resulting in gradual enhancement.
Unlike hyaluronic acid-based alternatives, Sculptra empowers your body to counteract aging effects progressively. Following injection, Sculptra aids in revitalizing the skin’s inner structure primarily through fibroblasts, gradually boosting natural collagen production. This process helps refine skin texture, address prominent lines and wrinkles, and gradually augment facial volume.
Who is a good candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra is a versatile solution whether you desire youthful volume, deep line treatment, or a dewy complexion. Its long-lasting, natural results suit everyone, regardless of age. It’s especially recommended for restoring lost volume, enhancing thin faces, and refreshing appearances subtly.
Sculptra proves particularly beneficial for individuals undergoing weight loss. As weight is shed, volume loss affects not only the body but also the face, resulting in sagging skin. Sculptra effectively addresses this by replenishing volume as weight is lost.
What areas can you treat with Sculptra?
Sculptra’s expanded FDA approval for fine lines and wrinkles brings greater versatility and treatment options:
- Boosting volume in thin faces and hollow cheeks
- Smoothing facial folds, wrinkles, and lines
- Fixing deep folds and lines, including smile lines
- Gradually adding volume to temples, cheeks, chin, and jawline
- Reviving skin texture and tone
- Enhancing effects of treatments like microneedling RF, lasers
- Working well with other injectable treatments like Xeomin, Dysport, Restylane Fillers and Juvederm Fillers
How many treatments will I need?
The number of Sculptra treatments needed can differ depending on factors like age, objectives, and personal requirements. To achieve optimal outcomes, our usual suggestion is 2-4 Sculptra sessions, with a minimum 4-week gap between each treatment.
How long does Sculptra last?
In the world of dermal fillers, Sculptra boasts remarkable staying power. Results typically last around 25 months, with some enjoying benefits for up to three years!
Factors like age, metabolism, and injectable breakdown can influence outcomes. Still, Sculptra’s durability surpasses other injectables and skincare treatments, ensuring long-lasting effects.
Is there any down time?
Sculptra treatment recovery is typically gentle. You may have slight puffiness and tenderness for 2-3 days, which is usually the extent of it. Like with any injectables, there’s a chance of experiencing minor bruising as well.
