Sculptra® is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)–based injection procedure that stimulates collagen production deep within the skin. Unlike dermal fillers, Sculptra® helps stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production, which can last 2-5 years. Sculptra® typically takes 2-4 treatments every six weeks for optimal correction. Areas of treatment include the temples, cheeks, midface, jawline, in front of the ear, neck, and chest. It can be used as a skin booster or to provide natural volumization for volume loss. Sculptra® offers a natural volume replacement and will not result in the over-injected “pillow face” look.
A good candidate for Sculptra is someone seeking to reduce facial wrinkles and volume loss and who is in good health. For suitability, a consultation with a medical professional is necessary.
Sculptra results are gradual, taking several weeks to appear due to its role in stimulating natural collagen production.
Sculptra effects can last up to two years and may vary by individual. Touch-up treatments can extend results.
Avoid blood thinners and alcohol before treatment to reduce bruising risk. After treatment, massage the treated area and avoid excessive sun.
During the Sculptra treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area for comfort. The Sculptra injection is done with a fine needle and is usually completed in under an hour.
