What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable used to help restore lost volume in facial areas, creating a subtle anti-aging effect. Composed of poly-L-lactic acid, the formula works by stimulating natural collagen growth to improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. Similar to dermal fillers like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®, Sculptra injections help smooth the skin by replacing volume that was lost from the natural aging process. However, Sculptra is unique in the way that it gradually stimulates collagen production over time to improve the skin’s underlying structure.
What Does the Sculptra Treatment Involve?
Our aesthetic professionals have been specially trained in Sculptra injections to ensure you receive the most natural-looking skin rejuvenation. As a biocompatible injectable, Sculptra does not require allergy testing. During your appointment, the ideal number of Sculptra injections will be administered into the target areas, creating continued improvement as collagen growth occurs. To achieve the best possible results, one to four Sculptra sessions scheduled three weeks apart are typically recommended.
What Can I Expect After Getting Sculptra?
After your Sculptra treatment, you can use a cold pack to help control any swelling. Facial massage may be recommended for the first five days after treatment. You should also avoid excess sun exposure until any swelling and redness subsides. Results are typically seen from a series of Sculptra injections gradually, taking its full effect over a few months. More details about what to expect after your Sculptra treatment will be discussed with you during your appointment.
How Long Does Sculptra Last?
Sculptra results have been shown to last up to two years. This is possible as the poly-L-lactic acid is gradually absorbed by the body, leading to collagen production that continues to improve your skin appearance. For optimal results, a series of treatments is recommended.
How Much Does Sculptra Cost?
A Sculptra treatment package can vary based on several factors. The number of treatment sessions, amount of Sculptra used for correction, and geographic area of the practice treating you can all influence your total cost.
