Sculptra is an injectable designed to assist people in their efforts to add volume, lift, and contour different areas of the face. In addition, Sculptra promotes collagen production, which helps new skin develop. One of the most common signs of facial aging is facial fat loss. With Sculptra, that lost volume can be restored while still maintaining a natural-looking appearance.
Sculptra is performed via multiple tiny injections in the treatment area. Before the injections are made, the injection sites will be mapped and the treatment area will be cleansed to minimize potential side effects. What makes Sculptra effective is its base, which is composed of poly-L-lactic acid. This injectable gradually restores fullness to the wrinkles and folds present on the patient’s face. The end goal is a soft more youthful appearance.
There are potential side effects and complications with Sculptra injections. That’s why it’s important to work with a practitioner that is qualified and experienced with Sculptra injections. During the consultation, you will discuss your medical history including allergies and concerns. In addition, your practitioner will also determine how many treatment sessions will be necessary to achieve the results you desire. Most patients can expect to need approximately three injections over 3-4 months. The key to a successful Sculptra treatment is consistent communication and understanding of the feasibility of your aesthetic goals. Be sure to check out the before and after gallery to get an idea of the kind of results you can expect.
You may notice immediate results, but it can take a few weeks or longer to see the full results of your treatment. The extra wait time is worth it since the results are expected to last up to two years. Your goals, response to treatment, level of correction needed, and post-treatment care will all determine the results you achieve with your Sculptra injections.
Individual results may vary.
