share this post


Have you heard about Sculptra®? 

Sculptra® is an injectable treatment that has gained considerable popularity in the world of aesthetics. From addressing facial volume loss and wrinkles to treating other signs of aging, it’s become a top choice in med spas around the US. 

In this article, we will give you all of the necessary information surrounding Sculptra®. We will delve into its benefits, candidacy requirements, and what you can expect during the treatment process.

By the end of this article, you will have the knowledge needed to make an informed decision about whether Sculptra® is the right option to help you achieve your desired cosmetic goals.

What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® injectable is an FDA-approved filler treatment that is used to smooth deep wrinkles and address facial volume loss.

Sculptra® works to stimulate collagen production and increase skin elasticity and hydration. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, therefore Sculptra® is used to stimulate a boost and provide natural-looking results.

Sculptra® is commonly injected into the following areas:

  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Smile Lines
  • Sunken Cheeks
  • Marionette Lines
  • Weak Jawline

Sculptra® is different from other filler treatments in its ability to boost the body’s collagen production mechanisms. Typical hyaluronic acid fillers offer immediate volume results, whereas Sculptra® takes more time due to its natural processes within the body.

Sculptra® Candidates

Good candidates for Sculptra® are those who have experienced volume loss and (or) are dealing with deep wrinkles, folds, or jowls.

Those looking to avoid a surgical option while still wanting a low-maintenance treatment may find that Sculptra® is the best choice for their needs.

As with other filler treatments, it’s important you are in overall good general health and do not experience reactions from fillers.

Sculptra® Process

When arriving at your Sculptra® appointment, your provider will first start by discussing your goals of treatment. They will then mark the injection locations and prep with antiseptic. 

Many clinics will offer a numbing agent to help with any discomfort; however, most patients report the injection itself feels like a minor pinch.

After the injection process, your provider will massage the treatment area to help distribute the Sculptra® and prevent any lumps from forming.

And that’s it! You’re done and on your way to better skin.

It’s common to experience swelling and bruising, and you may use an ice pack to help ease these effects.

Sculptra® Results

Because Sculptra® is a collagen booster, results are typically first seen about three months following the initial injection treatment. 

Full results are most prevalent after multiple treatment sessions and after your body has had ample time to produce collagen. While not permanent, Scupltra results can last two to three years depending on your body’s metabolism.
