The Skinny on Sculptra

view all

A bio-stimulatory filler with long-lasting results.

Sculptra is a unique dermal filler that goes beyond mere superficial enhancement. Unlike traditional hyaluronic acid fillers, which provide immediate volume by plumping the skin, Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Its active ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), gradually replenishes lost collagen, restoring volume, firmness and elasticity to the skin over time.

When administered by a skilled injector, Sculptra can address a myriad of age-related concerns, including:

  • Volume loss: Sculptra effectively restores lost volume in areas such as the cheeks, temples, and mid-face, providing long-lasting lift and rejuvenation.
  • Facial contouring: Facial contours can also be enhanced, creating a more defined jawline, cheekbones, and improvement in overall facial symmetry.
  • Wrinkle reduction: Sculptra diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and folds by boosting collagen production, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
  • Skin quality improvement: Beyond volumization, Sculptra improves the skin’s texture, firmness and elasticity, imparting a natural, refreshed appearance.

How is Sculptra Different from Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?

Fillers range from hyaluronic acid (HA) gel to biostimulatory. Examples of HA fillers include Restylane, Juvederm and RHA, while biostimulatory fillers are Sculptra and Radiesse. While HA fillers provide immediate results, their effects are temporary and last anywhere from 6-10 months depending on the product. In contrast, Sculptra offers a unique approach to facial rejuvenation with results that unfold gradually over weeks to months. This gradual transformation not only ensures natural-looking results but also delivers longevity that surpasses traditional fillers, lasting up to 2 years.

The Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra’s collagen-stimulating properties offer results that endure beyond typical filler treatments, providing sustained improvement in volume, contour, and skin quality.

Natural-looking Enhancement

By enhancing collagen production, Sculptra achieves results that look and feel natural, avoiding an overfilled appearance.

Gradual Transformation

Sculptra’s gradual approach allows for subtle yet significant improvements that evolve over time, ensuring a seamless transition to a more youthful-looking appearance.

Schedule a Consultation

Typically, a series of Sculptra treatments spaced several weeks apart may be recommended to achieve optimal results. The duration of results can vary depending on individual factors, but many patients enjoy results that last for up to two years or more.
