Sculptra has been a fan favorite lately, and I am here to tell you why.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that works by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that is found deep in your skin that helps support your skin’s structure. Collagen is a very important component to anti-aging and contributes to an overall more youthful appearance. Research tells us that everyone loses collagen at a rate of about 1% year, typically starting around age 30.
Sculptra is a great treatment option for people who are looking for improvement in their nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and smile lines. Sculptra assists in decreasing the depth of wrinkles in the lower face and restoring facial volume. Another benefit to Sculptra is that with the biostimulation and increased collagen, your skin will appear more radiant, smoother, and rejuvenated.
Results speak for themselves when it comes to Sculptra. Patients typically start seeing results around the third month after treatment. The best part? These results are indicated to last up to 25 months! The results are gradual and subtle, and downtime is minimal after the procedure. The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, soreness, and redness.
Everyone’s aesthetic journey is unique to them, and we always advocate setting up an appointment with a skilled injector who will design a treatment plan for you. As a general rule of thumb, providers may administer one vial of Sculptra per decade. However, this is not a one size fits all procedure, and results are best derived when your aesthetic goals are discussed with a trained injector. The typical treatment regimen is two to three injection appointments spaced over three to four months, but this may vary depending on your treatment plan.
