While many injectables used for cosmetic treatment are dermal fillers, Sculptra® is different. This cosmetic treatment is perfect for those who want to reduce or remove certain signs of aging, with a solution that lasts longer than other cosmetic options. It helps push the body to repair damage, which makes it so different.

What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is a brand of product which is manufactured by Galderma Laboratories. The major component in it is a synthetic polymer known as Poly-L-Lactic Acid. The product was approved for cosmetic use in 1999 and has found widespread use across the world. It is used to achieve a more youthful appearance by reducing facial wrinkles.

How does Sculptra® work?

Sculptra® contains Poly-L-Lactic Acid, commonly abbreviated as PLLA. This substance is quite unique as it is able to push the body to produce collagen in the areas where it is injected.

Collagen is a protein found in the skin and it provides support to body tissue. Collage breaks down as we age, and in the face, this results in loss of volume, sagging skin, and wrinkles. This means that Sculptra® essentially tightens the skin in the areas where it is injected, which is a very desired attribute.


The Benefits of Using Sculptra®

Sculptra® takes a unique approach to improve appearance. It doesn’t just fill out the skin but attempts to repair the root problem by stimulating collagen production to achieve natural restoration of volume and an authentic, youthful appearance.

Some of the benefits that can be gotten from using Sculptra® include:

  • Adds volume to targeted areas like the cheeks or jawline
  • Results improve over time due to the natural mechanism
  • Collagen production allows for long-lasting effects
  • Helps tighten sagging skin
  • Can be used to diminish cellulite on the thighs and buttocks
  • Can also be used on the body apart from the face

What to expect from the Sculptra® procedure?

Before a person can receive Sculptra® treatment, it is important to have a private consultation with our experienced medical team. Here, following a detailed assessment, the regions of the body to target will be determined.

The medical professional will make sure that the intended sites of administration are properly indicated before the procedure. The skin may be numbed beforehand, depending on the patient, after which, Sculptra® is administered via injections. The entire process usually takes no longer than an hour.

Sculptra® Procedure Aftercare

Clients who notice bruising or swelling in the targeted regions of their face or body following treatment should not be alarmed. This is entirely normal and will subside on its own after a couple of days have passed. Most patients will not need any particular care for these symptoms.

Although aftercare is on a patient-by-patient basis, most will not need to take any special precautions after receiving treatment with Sculptra®. Following treatment, most people are able to immediately resume work and any other day-to-day responsibilities that they have lined up for them.


What results to expect from Sculptra®?

Regarding the results seen after treatment with Sculptra®, clients will need to wait for several weeks before they begin to notice significant changes in their appearance. This is not surprising, as Sculptra® is not a dermal filler.

However, it is important to note that there may be minor noticeable changes after receiving Sculptra®, but those changes are not indicative of the final result, which is only seen after the substances in this treatment are able to exert their effect under the skin. The best part is that these changes can be seen up to two years after the procedure.


Am I suitable for a Sculptra® procedure?

If you’re looking to achieve a very natural-looking cosmetic treatment via a minimally invasive procedure, then Sculptra® is likely to be the procedure that you’re looking for. It is perfect for those looking for longer-lasting results.

Whether you want to rejuvenate your appearance, tighten loose skin, or reduce the appearance of cellulite, Sculptra® might be your perfect fit.
