What is Sculptra?

Collagen is a protein that is vital to the structure of our skin. A lack of collagen can result in unwanted lines and wrinkles in the face that could be hard to get rid of. Sculptra is a dermal filler that primarily consists of poly-L-lactic acid—which has been used in things like dissolvable stiches for its restorative properties. This component works with your body to help rebuild collagen levels, creating smoother, youthful skin in place of wrinkles. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra is more so a stimulant. It stimulates and enhances the production of collagen in your body. This corrects those fine lines, folds and depressions.

What is the Process for Sculptra Fillers?

Sculptra is administered via injection. These injections must be deep in the skin, where the collagen strands are located. It’s not common to experience a lot of pain during or after treatment. A topical numbing cream can be applied to the injection area which should ease any pain you may feel. It’s normal to feel some tenderness or slight pressure during and after the injection.

Results

You should expect to recover rather quickly following the injections. The results, however, take place gradually. An average of 3 treatments might be needed to achieve full results. Of course, results vary from patient to patient; the effect depends on your skin and how the injections are administered. The lasting result should have a longevity of about two years. Below, you can view some satisfied before and after photos. *Please keep in mind that results may vary based on the individual patient*.

 Side Effects

Usual side effects for fillers last about 7 days. Any serious side effects (effects that may cause problems with breathing, excessive bleeding, irritation or long lasting swelling and discoloration) warrants a trip to see the specialist. Common side effects include redness, swelling, tenderness or soreness. Again, if these effects last longer than a week, you should contact a doctor or specialist.
