How Does Sculptra Work?

Injectable fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic procedures due to being an easy, convenient, and minimally invasive alternative to traditional plastic surgery procedures. Dermal fillers can be used to soften lines and wrinkles, create plumper, more defined lips, and increase volume in places like the cheekbones. Sculptra is a type of injectable filler that can restore facial volume, which is lost over time due to the body’s natural aging process.

What is sculptra?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid, which is used both to treat deep lines, creases, and folds to give a more youthful appearance and to restore the structure of your face by increasing facial volume that has decreased from natural forces of aging. Sculptra boosts your skin’s natural production of collagen. Sculptra was originally formulated to treat Lipoatrophy, which is a facial fat loss that results in sunken cheeks, as well as deep folds and indentations on the face as a result of both aging and illnesses.

Who is a good candidate for Sculptra?

Sculptra is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are each scheduled about three weeks apart. Sculptra is a good choice for anyone who has experienced loss of volume in the face due to aging or illness, or who wants to diminish severe lines and wrinkles in the face.

How many Sculptra sessions will I need?

 You may notice immediate results, but it can take a few months to see the full results of your treatment. Your Sculptra specialist will work with you to determine the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve the best results. The average regimen consists of three injections spread out over three or four months.

How long does Sculptra last?

Once treatment is completed, the effects from Sculptra are relatively long-lasting. Most patients report results lasting up to two years, with little maintenance required to maintain results.

What are some other Sculptra uses?

Sculptra can also be used to lift and sculpt the buttocks. Sculptra buttock augmentation works to add volume in the same way it does for the face to lift and shape the buttocks. People are turning to Sculptra more and more to increase the size of buttocks without a more invasive surgery.
