What is Sculptra®?
FDA-approved in 2009, Sculptra® is one of the best injectable treatments available for patients interested in providing long-term correction to their wrinkles. While most fillers provide only immediate improvements to wrinkles that fade quickly, Sculptra® can bring more than two years of wrinkle correction to shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. This treatment can be used to address nasolabial folds, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and loss of facial fullness.
How Does it Work?
Sculptra® is administered over a series of three treatments. With each additional treatment, patients begin to gradually see greater and greater wrinkle correction that can last up to two years after the last treatment.
This product is made of poly-L-lactic acid (plla) and is injected into the deep dermis. Following injection, Sculptra® is gently massaged into the skin to ensure that it is evenly distributed throughout the treatment area. A few days after each injection is administered, the microparticles of (plla) begin to replace collagen in the deep dermis and reinforce the overall structure and strength of the skin. Over time and with each additional treatment, this collagen framework becomes increasingly strengthened, leading to beautiful, wrinkle-free skin that lasts.
Each of these treatments should be spaced between six and ten weeks apart. Following treatment, it typically takes patients between 45-90 days to see the full results of their injections. While side effects like swelling and bruising are common, these usually subside within a few days of each session.
Am I a Candidate for Sculptra®?
Any patient interested in correcting subtle to severe facial folds, wrinkles, or loss of skin volume is a potential candidate for Sculptra®. However, it’s important that patients are in good health, have realistic expectations, and understand the treatment process before receiving these injections.
