Sculptra: Tap Into Your Skin's Potential
Activate your skin's collagen production for natural volume and lasting results.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable used to harness the body's natural collagen production power. As we age, our collagen production begins to slow, causing the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and life's other stressors to show more rapidly on our skin. Sculptra is an alternative to traditional dermal fillers as an FDA-approved injectable to restore facial volume, fill fine lines, and create a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra can take one to four treatment sessions (typically three) - with three weeks in between each treatment - to achieve optimal anti-aging and volume-restoration results. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, meaning it activates collagen production within your own body to smooth and fill fine lines. Unlike traditional dermal fillers that provide fullness based on the amount of hyaluronic acid (HA) product injected into an area, Sculptra's PLLA particles trigger collagen production upon absorption.
Sculptra Treatment, Results & Downtime
Our skin works hard to shield us from UV rays, free radicals, and other factors that we face on a daily basis - it only makes sense that it would need a reminder to produce collagen after serving as our body's largest organ. Sculptra is biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic, and FDA-approved. After Sculptra is injected, Dr. Feinstein massages the area to evenly distribute the product. As the beads of the product break down within the skin, they produce new collagen and restore volume to the area. Sculptra is most commonly used to treat:
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Other areas with fine lines throughout the face
When administered by an expert injector, Sculptra injections are virtually painless and require zero downtime. Exercise is not recommended within 24-hours post-treatment to prevent the product from unintentionally migrating to other areas of the face. Patients report that the positive effects of Sculptra can last two to five years, although individual results may vary.
Sculptra Vs. Other Dermal Fillers
Although results from Sculptra may be more gradual than traditional dermal fillers, the results are natural and long-lasting. Over the course of weeks to months following your recommended Sculptra treatments, you'll see fine lines fade and volume restored to wrinkles and folds.
Toxins like Botox® and Dysport® weaken muscle function for less movement in the face, preventing future fine lines and wrinkles from forming. Fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane® provide immediate results by filling in lines and wrinkles with the product. Sculptra is in a category of its own as a collagen stimulator that harnesses the skin's own collagen production power to achieve natural-looking volume.
