Sculptra

Reclaim Your Youthful Glow with Sculptra

Sculptra is an injectable treatment that works by stimulating collagen production in the skin, resulting in a more youthful and lifted appearance. The gradual increase in collagen production over time leads to natural-looking results that can last for up to two years.

Sculptra is most commonly used for the nasolabial folds, aka ‘smile lines’. Other areas that can see great improvement from Sculptra treatments are:

Restore Your Natural Collagen

Aging is a natural process that affects us all, but wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and hollowing of the features can take a toll on our self-esteem, making us feel self-conscious and insecure.

Sculptra is a safe and effective injectable treatment that addresses a major cause of facial aging, the loss of collagen. Collagen is a fibrous protein crucial for preserving the form and framework of your skin. By the age of 40, many individuals have experienced a decline of up to 20% in their natural collagen levels. Sculptra helps promote the body's natural collagen synthesis, resulting in a more youthful and lifted appearance.

One of the most unique aspects of Sculptra is its gradual approach to achieving results. Unlike other aesthetic treatments, Sculptra works by stimulating the body's natural collagen production over time. This leads to subtle, natural-looking improvements in skin texture, elasticity, and volume. By avoiding sudden changes in appearance, Sculptra ensures that your transformation is gradual and seamless, allowing you to enjoy your new look without feeling like you've undergone a drastic change.

Whether you're looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, or hollow areas, Sculptra can help you achieve the youthful radiance you've been searching for.

Why do we love Sculptra?

Long-lasting results

Sculptra’s unique collagen-stimulating formula leads to gradual yet long-lasting improvements in skin texture, elasticity, and volume. You’ll enjoy a more youthful and radiant look for up to two years without the need for frequent touch-ups or maintenance.

Natural-looking transformations

Unlike other aesthetic treatments, Sculptra works with your body’s natural processes to create subtle and natural-looking improvements in your appearance. By gradually restoring volume and fullness, Sculptra can help you look like a refreshed and more youthful version of yourself.

Safe and FDA-approved

Sculptra has been FDA-approved for collagen stimulation and can help restore facial volume and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. This means that you can feel confident that you’re undergoing a safe and effective treatment that has undergone rigorous testing and clinical trials.

Non-surgical and minimally invasive

Sculptra is a non-surgical treatment that involves a series of injections. The procedure is minimally invasive, requires little to no downtime, and typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. This makes it a convenient option for those with busy schedules who want to see results without the need for invasive surgery.

How Sculptra Works

Although administered similarly, hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers and Sculptra injections work differently. Dermal fillers, like Restylane and RHA,  directly restore lost volume by introducing a gel that maintains its shape within the skin. On the other hand, Sculptra functions as a collagen stimulator, and its outcomes become noticeable gradually over a few months.

 

Sculptra is injected into the skin, where the poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA-SCA) contained in Sculptra forms a framework that helps support and maintain the skin’s inner structure. Once absorbed, Sculptra helps stimulate and restore your own natural collagen production.

 

The increase in volume within the treated areas becomes apparent over the course of several months. To achieve the best results, it is often recommended to undergo two or more treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart. Results are typically softer and more natural compared to dermal fillers, and can last up to two years.

While many patients begin noticing changes within a few weeks, it’s important to note that the initial post-procedure plumpness may diminish as swelling subsides and the water introduced with poly-L-lactic acid is absorbed, restoring your appearance to its pre-injection state. However, as the ongoing collagen production takes effect, visible improvements become apparent over time.
