Sculptra Q&A

How is Sculptra different from other types of dermal fillers?

Most dermal fillers are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. They add fullness and volume to areas of the face that are sagging or wrinkled, thereby pulling your skin tighter to lessen the visible signs of aging.

Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid. While Sculptra injections temporarily boost facial volume, the true benefit of this treatment is how your body responds. Poly-L-lactic acid prompts your body to produce a significant volume of new collagen.

This newly created tissue rejuvenates the foundation of your skin, creating natural-looking results that last long after your body absorbs the filler material.

What areas are well-suited for Sculptra injections?

Sculptra is a versatile treatment that delivers wonderful effects in multiple different areas. For facial rejuvenation, Sculptra beautifies the:

  • Cheeks
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Temples
  • Chin

Sculptra is also used to create additional volume in certain areas of the body, like the buttocks and hips.

Sculptra treatment requires multiple office visits. Most people benefit from a series of injections spaced out over several weeks. This allows your practitioner to assess how your body responds to treatment and adjust the subsequent injections accordingly.

What is the recovery process like after Sculptra injections?

It takes just a few moments for your practitioner to place the Sculptra injections. You can expect mild swelling and tenderness but can easily manage discomfort with over-the-counter pain medications.

For a few days, avoid placing any pressure on the area where you had Sculptra injections. This ensures the filler can spread evenly throughout the targeted area. Avoid strenuous activities for a few days, but you can resume most normal activities immediately after your visit.

How long do Sculptra results last?

You may see an initial improvement in the days following your injections, but it takes time for your body to create the new collagen that delivers the most impressive results. Once you’ve completed your series of treatments, you can expect your results to last up to two years.

At that point, you can decide whether to return for another round of treatment. If you’d like to change anything about your results, just let your practitioner know.
