What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a unique dermal filler that stimulates collagen production in the skin, helping to restore volume, improve facial contours, and reduce the signs of aging. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible and biodegradable material used in medicine for decades.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra works by stimulating the natural collagen production in your skin. The PLLA microparticles act as a scaffold, triggering your body's healing response. Over time, new collagen fibers are formed, providing long-lasting volume and firmness. Unlike traditional fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra offers a gradual and natural-looking enhancement.
What are the treatment areas for Sculptra?
Sculptra is primarily used to treat the face and restore volume to areas that have experienced age-related volume loss. It can target hollow temples, sunken cheeks, deep nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (lines around the mouth), and jawline contouring. Additionally, Sculptra can be used to improve the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks.
Who is an ideal candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra is suitable for both men and women who want to address volume loss and improve the contours of their faces. Ideal candidates may have:
Loss of facial volume
Sunken cheeks or temples
Deep nasolabial folds or marionette lines
A desire for natural-looking, long-lasting results
Realistic expectations about the procedure
- Cleansing: The treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed.
- Injection: Sculptra will be injected into the targeted areas using a fine needle or cannula.
- Massage: After each injection, we may massage the treated area to distribute the product evenly and reduce the risk of any potential nodules.
- Immediate results: Following the treatment, you may notice some immediate results due to the volume from the injection itself, but these will subside quickly.
- Swelling and bruising: It is common to experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites. These are typically temporary and can be managed with cold compresses and over-the-counter pain relievers.
- Massaging: We will provide instructions on how to perform massage techniques at home to help ensure even distribution of the product.
- Multiple sessions: Sculptra treatment usually involves multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
- Gradual improvement: Results will become more noticeable over time as Sculptra stimulates collagen production, with full results typically appearing several months after the treatment.
- Maintenance: To maintain the desired results, periodic touch-up treatments may be recommended, as the effects of Sculptra are not permanent.
