What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra is a unique anti-aging injectable treatment that stimulates and accelerates collagen production to restore facial volume and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles over time.
What does Sculptra treat?
Areas of treatment with Sculptra include the temples, cheeks, chin & jawline, smile lines (nasolabial folds),and marionette lines.
What is the difference between Sculptra and dermal fillers?
Unlike dermal fillers, Sculptra does not simply fill in wrinkles and lines. Instead, its key ingredient poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) acts as a scaffold to replenish collagen and ultimately reverse signs of aging for a refreshed, youthful appearance over time.
How do Sculptra injections work?
When injected, the PLLA in the Sculptra formula acts as a natural biostimulatory agent to accelerate collagen production and gradually produce natural, long-lasting results for up to two years.
How long does it take to see results after Sculptra injection?
Results are NOT immediate as it takes several weeks to stimulate collagen production and start to reverse signs of aging. Typically, a Sculptra treatment regimen involves a series of 2-3 sessions over a course of 3-4 months.
How long does Sculptra last?
Results last for at least two years when a proper treatment plan is executed. Maintenance is required for optimal results and continued effect over time.
Is Sculptra safe?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved product used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. It should not be used to treat the lips or under eye regions. It is important to speak with your provider to discover if Sculptra Aesthetic is right for you.
What is recovery like after Sculptra?
Immediately after treatment you will have fullness and swelling. Over the next few hours, the fullness will subside as the Sculptra formula is absorbed. It is important to massage treated areas as directed by your provider.
