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

What To expect

Here’s how we take care of you before, during, and after your treatment.
Before Your Treatment
  • Pre-treatment instructions: We will provide specific instructions, such as avoiding blood-thinning medications or certain supplements, to minimize the risk of bruising.
During Your Treatment
  • 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.
After Your Treatment
  • 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.

What is the differrence between Sculptra and Raidesse?

Sculptra and Radiesse are both dermal fillers used to address volume loss and improve facial contours, but they have some differences in their composition and mechanism of action. Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) microparticles, which stimulate collagen production over time, resulting in gradual and long-lasting results. Radiesse, on the other hand, is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel carrier, providing immediate volume while also stimulating collagen production. Additionally, Sculptra is primarily used for larger treatment areas, such as cheeks and temples, while Radiesse is often preferred for deeper lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds.

What is the difference between Sculptra and traditional hyaluronic acid dermal filler?

The main difference between Sculptra and traditional hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers lies in their mechanisms of action and duration of results. Traditional HA fillers provide immediate volume enhancement by physically filling in wrinkles and creases. They typically last between 6 to 18 months, depending on the specific product. On the other hand, Sculptra works by stimulating the body's collagen production, resulting in a gradual and natural-looking improvement over time. Sculptra's results can last up to two years, making it a longer-lasting option. While both types of fillers have their benefits, Sculptra is often chosen for those seeking a more gradual and prolonged rejuvenation, particularly for addressing larger areas of volume loss and facial contours.
