Facial fat loss can happen as we age. Losing fat underneath our skin can lead to sunken cheeks, indentations, and even hallows beneath the eyes. Sculptra is designed with this in mind and is a biocompatible, safe, and synthetic material that is injected into the sunken areas in the face to add a more youthful fullness.

What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is one of the longest lasting fillers on the market today. In fact, it is so popular due to the time it lasts but also the fact that it actually stimulates collagen growth. It smoothes wrinkles and folds and is particularly good with the deep folds, such as the “marionette lines” running from the nose to the chin. Sculptra provides a significant, but gradual increase in the skin thickness by helping your body build up its own collagen—thus improving the appearance of the folds and sunken areas.

Is Sculptra Safe?

Sculptra treatment sessions are generally considered a safe and easy way of smoothing facial wrinkles, and side effects are rare. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about Sculptra injections and can provide advice if you experience any adverse reactions.

The main component of Sculptra, (poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA), has been used in dissolvable sutures for years, demonstrating its safety. Lactic acid is what is made in our muscles after exercise. Sculptra helps the body replace what it has lost, rather than introducing artificial or synthetic compounds deep within the dermis. Sculptra creates a foundation which gradually restores fullness by reinforcing collagen structures in the body. The gradual and subtle wrinkle correction created by Sculptra provides a more refined appearance and can last more than two years, significantly longer than most dermal fillers.

Are There Side Effects of Sculptra Injections?

While Sculptra is an all-natural collagen booster, there are some potential side effects of which you should be aware:

  • Reactions at the site of injection: This can include redness, bruising, swelling, itching, mild pain, tenderness, and sensitivity to heat. These side effects are common and are usually mild in severity. They may last anywhere from two days to two weeks and should not cause any lasting issues. Often, these effects can be successfully controlled with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory and antihistamine medications.
  • Granulomas: These are small bumps that occur underneath the skin. Within six to 12 months of the injection, a patient may develop these bumps, which may or may not be visible. Sometimes, these small bumps are permanent while in other cases, corticosteroids may clear them up.
  • Infection: This is a rare side effect. Since Sculptra contains a natural collagen booster, infection and other severe complications are extremely unlikely.

Sculptra FAQ's

For How Long Does Does Sculptra Last?

How Can Scuptra Be Used With Other Products?

Is Sculptra FDA Approved?

For How Long Does Does Sculptra Last?

Sculptra can last up to 2 years in most patients. Sculptra’s counterparts like Juvederm and Restylane usually last only nine months to one year. Yet, Sculptra does not necessarily provide instant gratification to patients. Since Sculptra isn’t just adding volume, but helping your body stimulate its own collagen growth, it can take 45-90 days to see the full result of your Sculptra injection.

How Can Scuptra Be Used With Other Products?

Sculptra is a great alternative to hyaluronic acid fillers. Though the initial treatment might be a bit more costly, the longevity of the product can make it more cost-effective long term. In addition, Sculptra can be added to other treatments such as Botox,Juvederm, and Restylane products to achieve the ultimate non-surgical facelift.

Is Sculptra FDA Approved?

Sculptra received its full FDA approval in 2009 for cosmetic use within the United States. However, it has been used extensively in Europe, Canada, and another 20 countries since 1999.
