Sculptra™

Sculptra™

Sculptra™ is an anti-aging series of facial injection treatments that give you subtle results over time. It gives you a gradual, natural transformation for a more youthful-looking appearance. Sculptra™ works by stimulating your own body to create a deep base of new collagen that can last approximately 2 years. Usually, 3-4 treatment sessions spaced about one month apart are needed. The total price will depend on the number of vials that are recommended for you.

FAQ

What is Sculptra™? 

Sculptra™ is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic material. It is used to restore facial volume, diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and stimulate collagen production for long-lasting results.

 

How does Sculptra™ work?

Sculptra™ works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, gradually replenishing lost volume and improving skin texture over time. Sculptra™ is gradually absorbed by the body, triggering collagen synthesis and restoring youthful facial contours.

 

What areas can be treated with Sculptra™?

Sculptra™ is commonly used to address volume loss and facial wrinkles in areas such as the cheeks, temples, chin, and jawline. It can also be used to improve the appearance of nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin). It can also be used in other parts of the body such as the butt, arms, knees, and almost anywhere!

 

How many treatments are needed?

The number of Sculptra™ treatments needed varies depending on individual factors such as the degree of volume loss and the desired outcome. Most patients typically require a series of treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. We usually say for every decade of years you would need 1 vial. (example: if your 40 years old we would suggest 4 vials)

 

What is the treatment process like?

During a Sculptra™ treatment session, you are numbed for 30 minutes prior to your treatment to minimize any discomfort. The product is injected into the targeted areas using a fine needle or cannula. After the injections, gentle massage of the treated areas helps ensure even distribution of the product.

 

Is there downtime after Sculptra™ treatment?

There is typically minimal downtime after Sculptra™ treatment. Some patients may experience temporary swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects usually resolve within a few days. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.

 

When will I see results from Sculptra™?

Results from Sculptra™ treatment are not immediate and develop gradually over several weeks to months as collagen production is stimulated. While individual results may vary, most patients begin to notice improvements in facial volume and skin texture within a few weeks after treatment.

 

How long do results from Sculptra™ last?

The results of Sculptra™ treatment are long-lasting since it is buildng your own collagen. Typically lasting up to two years or more in some cases. However, maintenance treatments may be recommended to sustain the desired outcome over time possibly once every year.

 

Is Sculptra™ suitable for everyone?

Sculptra™ is generally considered safe for most healthy adults seeking to address age-related volume loss and facial wrinkles. However, it may not be suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions. A consultation with one of our qualified healthcare provider is necessary to determine candidacy for treatment.

 

Are there any side effects or risks associated with Sculptra™?

Like any injectable treatment, Sculptra™ may be associated with potential side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, or discomfort at the injection sites. Serious complications are rare but may include infection or allergic reactions. It’s essential to discuss any concerns or medical history with your healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.

Typically anyone is a candidate for Sculptra™ injections. You are likely a good candidate if you want to restore volume to hollow areas of your face caused by aging or loss of weight.
Within 24 hours, you will notice the effects of the injection, but they will only last for a short time. You will see long-term, visible results in two to three months, but the immediate effects will fade over time as your body produces new collagen.
The results of Sculptra™ can last for as long as two to three years after the initial injections. 
After Sculptra™ injections, swelling occurs immediately as the body absorbs the water-like substance activated by the injections within 24 hours. There is no downtime, and restrictions are minimal.
