Restore Volume & Collagen With Sculptra

Is Sculptra Worth All The Hype?

What is Sculptra Exactly?

Sculptra® is not your typical dermal filler. It's a unique poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) injectable that goes beyond simply filling lines and wrinkles. Instead, it stimulates your body's natural production of collagen, leading to gradual volume restoration and wrinkle reduction from within. 

Imagine your aging skin as a dried up sponge. When injected with Sculptra, it integrates and absorbs within the tissue to add volume and collagen. This leads to a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Read on to explore more details. 

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra® contains microparticles of PLLA, which are biocompatible and gradually absorbed by your body. As they dissolve, they stimulate the production of your own collagen, a protein that provides structure and support to your skin. This natural collagen growth leads to visible improvement that can last up to 2-3 years.

Benefits of Sculptra That Turn Back Time

  • Natural-looking results: Sculptra® encourages your body to produce its own collagen, leading to subtle and natural-looking improvements.
  • Long-lasting effects: Unlike other fillers, Sculptra® results can last up to 2-3 years, offering a cost-effective solution.
  • Addresses deep wrinkles and volume loss: Sculptra® effectively targets deep wrinkles and folds, offering a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.

Side Effects of Sculptra

Sculptra is very safe when injected by a trained, licensed provider. The key to minimizing lumps is to remember 5/5/5, discussed later. As with any medical procedure, Sculptra® can cause temporary side effects, such as:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness
  • Redness

These side effects typically subside within a few days. Rare complications can occur, so it's crucial to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to discuss the risks and benefits of Sculptra® in detail.

Are you a good candidate for Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is generally suitable for individuals with moderate to severe wrinkles and volume loss who are seeking a natural-looking, long-lasting correction. It's important to consult with a doctor to determine if you're a good candidate for Sculptra® treatment.

Sculptra® vs. Other Fillers:

Unlike traditional hyaluronic acid fillers that offer immediate volume through injection, Sculptra® focuses on stimulating your own collagen production for long-term results. While hyaluronic acid fillers require more frequent touch-ups, Sculptra® provides lasting improvement with fewer treatments.

Results can be seen in 1-3 months which means this treatment is aligns with long term planning focused around prevention abd correction.

Cost of Sculptra®:

The cost of Sculptra® treatment varies depending on the amount of product used and the experience of the healthcare professional. To determine your goals and develop a treatment plan book a complimentary virtual consult to learn more.

How is Sculptra Different From Dermal Fillers?

The distinctive differentiating factor between Sculptra and Hyaluronic Acid Gel Fillers available in the market lies in its primary focus. Unlike conventional fillers that primarily aim to instantly "fill" facial areas, a liquid facelift centers on the stimulation of collagen production. In essence, Sculptra actively encourages the natural process of collagen synthesis, prompting the face to replenish itself with additional collagen.

Furthermore, Sculptra boasts an unparalleled feature - the gradual onset of results. While some dermal fillers may promise immediate outcomes within a mere two weeks, such effects are short-lived, typically lasting no longer than a year. In contrast, Sculptra's unique formulation ensures enduring and natural-looking results, setting it apart as a superior choice for those seeking sustained facial rejuvenation.

What is The 5>5>5 RULE?

After your appointment: After your treatment with Sculptra, it is very important that you follow the 5-5-5 rule. That is, you must massage your face 5 times a day for 5 minutes at a time for 5 days after your injections. Your face can appear “full” after your treatment due to the amount of fluid that is injected. This integrates Sculptra throughout the tissue and helps reduce lumps.
