Fillers are an anti-aging aesthetic mainstay. When more sculpting and structure are necessary for long-lasting results, Sculptra an injectable collagen stimulator, may be recommended. With its unique properties and long-lasting effects, Sculptra has become a sought-after choice for those looking to achieve a more youthful appearance that defies the hands of time.


What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a groundbreaking injectable treatment for those looking to enhance their appearance and combat the signs of aging. The product is injected deep to restore volume and improve skin texture by stimulating collagen production for results lasting up to two years.

How it Works

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra is comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic compound compatible with the body that is metabolized over time. Sculptra works differently from hyaluronic acid filler in that instead of drawing water to the area to volumize it, Sculptra stimulates collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that gives structure and elasticity to our skin, but as we age, our body produces less collagen, leading to wrinkles and sagging. As collagen levels increase within the skin, it becomes firmer and smoother.

Unlike dermal fillers that add volume immediately upon injection, Sculptra takes time to work. Typically, multiple treatments over several months are needed to achieve optimal results. The results of Sculptra are long-lasting because once the new collagen forms, it can continue to regenerate even after treatment.

The Benefits of Sculptra

Improved Skin Quality

One of the main advantages of Sculptra is its ability to improve the skin’s quality by firming the skin. With consistent use, Sculptra can effectively reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

Long-Lasting Results

Unlike temporary fillers, Sculptra provides long-lasting results by encouraging natural collagen growth within the body. The effects of smoother, more youthful-looking skin can last six months to two years.

A Natural Look

Sculptra provides natural-looking enhancement. The gradual process of creating collagen leaves the skin with subtle results that don’t make you look fake, overdone, or injected.

Target treatment areas of Sculptra

Sculptra is a versatile dermal filler that can be used to target common signs of aging that affect:

  • Cheeks: It can restore lost volume in the cheeks, giving them a more youthful and lifted appearance.
  • Temples: By injecting it into the temples, it can help replenish lost volume, reducing the hollowed or sunken look that often comes with aging.
  • Jawline: Sculpting the jawline with it can provide better definition and enhance overall facial symmetry.
  • Nasolabial folds: It can help smooth out these deep folds, which run from the nose down to the mouth, resulting in a more rejuvenated appearance.
  • Marionette lines: Also known as “laugh lines,” these vertical wrinkles extend from the corners of your mouth to your chin. With these injections, these lines can be softened for a younger-looking smile.
  • Chin augmentation: By adding volume to the chin with this treatment, there’s improved balance and harmony between facial features.
  • Buttocks: It can help augment the butt, adding volume in certain places for a rounded, fuller look.

With its long-lasting results and ability to stimulate collagen production, Sculptra offers an effective solution for targeting various areas of concern on the face, helping individuals achieve natural-looking results and regain their confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sculptra is safe and is FDA-approved treatment for facial volume loss and wrinkles. The main ingredient in Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), has been used in medical procedures, like dissolvable stitches, for many years. As with any cosmetic procedure, there are some potential side effects, such as swelling or bruising at the injection site, but these are generally mild and temporary.

The number of treatments needed varies depending on the degree of aging and your goals. On average, patients should undergo three injections sessions about four to six weeks apart. This allows time for the product to begin to stimulate collagen production. After the initial treatment series, touch-up sessions may be recommended every one to two years to maintain optimal results.

While most people can benefit from treatment, it’s best for those with concerns about facial volume loss or wrinkles and for people who would like to boost the appearance of their skin.
