What is Sculptra®?
While many dermal fillers are derived from hyaluronic acid and designed to create immediate lift and volume within the skin, Sculptra® works differently. It is a unique formulation of poly-L-lactic acid that works in the skin’s deeper dermal layers and addresses visible signs of aging at the source.
Sculptra® can help correct:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
With the ability to target both moderate and severe signs of aging around the nose and mouth, this dermal filler is FDA-approved and help replace the collagen that is lost during the aging process.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
This filler is injected just underneath the skin in a cross-hatch pattern to create a strong foundation for the best results. The poly-L-lactic acid then begins to gradually renew skin strength, structure, and elasticity. The result is an appearance that is subtly rejuvenated over time and that can last for up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
While other dermal fillers create fast results by adding volume to the skin, Sculptra® stands alone on the aesthetic market for its ability to correct visible signs of aging around the nose and mouth from the inside out.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Slight reddening, swelling, and bruising of the skin may occur at injection sites, but these side effects are temporary and typically fade within the first 24 hours. Prior to your Sculptra® treatment, our medical team will evaluate your individual condition and ensure that this dermal filler can create the best results for you. When appropriate, may suggest alternative or complementary treatments based on your goals and preferences.
What Results Can I Expect?
Results may vary, but many patients begin seeing visible results within a few days with full results developing in a few months. With optimal treatment, your smoother, younger-looking appearance can last for up to 2 years. While Sculptra® can be a standalone treatment, it can also be utilized as a long-term solution for managing visible signs of aging around the nose and mouth.
