What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a unique FDA approved injectable product made from a substance called synthetic poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid is bio-compatible and biodegradable. When injected into the face, it causes a significant increase in collagen production. 

Your body uses collagen as a building block to create facial volume and structure. Collagen is responsible for supple, plump skin, skin radiance, and a vibrant, youthful appearance.

What areas can be treated with Sculptra?

Sculptra can be used to treat several areas of the face where volume has been lost. Sculptra effectively rejuvenates the following facial areas:

  • Hollow cheeks
  • Volume loss in the temples or around the chin
  • Folds or creases between the nose and mouth (marionette lines)
  • Folds or creases from the corners of the mouth to the chin (nasolabial folds)
  • Jawline

What is the recovery period after Sculptra treatments?

Sculptra treatments require minimal social downtime. Patients will experience swelling in and around the injected areas for 2-4 days. However, most patients can return to work or to their usual daily routine once their treatment is complete.

Mild side effects are similar to those experienced with other dermal fillers. They may include swelling, bruising, redness at the injection sides, tenderness, itching, and temporary lumps. To minimize any of these side affects, immediatley post procedure cold packs can be applied.  Post-treatment you will be instructed by your provider to vigorously massage the treatment area 5 times per day, for 5 minutes, for 5 days.  

Until any side effects have resolved, you can improve the healing process by avoiding sun exposure, extreme heat, or strenuous exercise.

When will I see results after Sculptra? 

When injected, Sculptra triggers a boost in the body’s collagen production. After your treatment, the the skin begins to rebuild from within. For optimal correction, we recommend a series of 2-3 appointments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.  During your treatment period improvement will slowly be seen.  Optimal correction will be achieved 2-3 months after your last treatment resulting in more volume, smoother, more radiant skin, and a more youthful, fresh appearance. Results can last up to two years, However, the aging process doesn't stop.  Once a year "boost" treatments are typically recommended to maintain results.
