Sculptra is an FDA-approved polylactic acid dermal filler. Polylactic acid is a non-toxic, biodegradable substance that stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and has been implemented for more than 40 years in surgical products like dissolvable stitches.
Sculptra is frequently used to correct deep facial wrinkles and fine lines for a smoother profile. It’s also used to replenish volume underneath the eyes, temples, and cheeks. One of our talented professionals will sit down with you to review your medical history to determine if Sculptra is right for you. The results provide a fuller, younger facial appearance
How Is Sculptra Different?
Traditional dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a gel-like compound that attracts water and provides immediate volumizing results. Sculptra works differently as it targets the deeper layers of the dermis, where it stimulates collagen synthesis. With time, the skin’s underlying structure becomes thicker and more elastic, helping to restore more youthful contours.
Sculptra begins to work within a few weeks after injection and gradually enhances collagen levels to improve the skin’s structural foundation. Since collagen regrowth takes time, results do not occur overnight. Most patients will see gradual improvements in fullness and volume within three to nine months. This is an added benefit, as there is no chance of overcorrecting, and results will be subtler.
What Should I Expect From My Sculptra Treatment?
The skin is cleansed and numbed with a topical anesthetic cream. Because it is injected into the deep dermis, the filler contains lidocaine to minimize any discomfort. After the injections, the site is gently massaged to help the poly-L-lactic acid molecules distribute evenly for optimal results.
