Achieving and maintaining a naturally younger-looking appearance gets easier with medical advances. Sculptra® is a long-lasting dermal filler that corrects more severe signs of aging.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler that helps correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds over a series of treatments. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid that is naturally absorbed by the body over time and promotes collagen production. Once injected, Sculptra® plumps the skin and replaces lost collagen, giving you natural results that can last up to two years. Sculptra® is different from other dermal fillers as most contain hyaluronic acid (HA) and artificial collagen to add volume to the targeted area.
Sculptra® offers the following benefits:
- Gradual improvement that looks natural
- No downtime or recovery
- Quick, in-office treatment
- Very slight chance of adverse reaction
What To Expect After
There is no recovery or downtime following Sculptra® injections; however, you may want to limit physical activity for a day or two to prevent any excessive swelling or redness at the injection site. You may also gently massage the injection site to ensure the filler is evenly spread and can begin working on your skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR Sculptra?
A: Sculptra is ideal for anyone who wants to reverse or greatly diminish the signs of aging, including facial loss, areas of the face that look sunken in, prominent wrinkles on the lower face or chin, marionette lines, or nasolabial folds. Sculptra treats these areas by adding volume to create a smoother complexion.
Q: HOW LONG DOES A Sculptra PROCEDURE TAKE?
A: Sculptra treatments are quick and completed typically in less than an hour. If other treatments are scheduled for the same appointment, the appointment may take a bit longer.
Q: WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
A: The results of your Sculptra are not immediately noticeable and start to become visible over time. For some, it may even take up to a year before the full effects are seen. The results show gradual improvement over time and last for up to two years.
Q: WHAT IS THE COST OF Sculptra?
A: The cost of Sculptra varies with each patient as it is based on the area to be treated, how many treatments are needed, and whether other treatments are performed at the same time.
