What is Sculptra:

Sculptra is a collagen stimulant used to plump the skin, thus smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and some texturization. It is an injection made of poly-L-lactic acid, and used to encourage the natural production of collagen within your skin. This means this injection not only provides a smooth and youthful look, but also helps strengthen your skin barrier and quality over time as well.

Benefits

Sculptra is unlike your typical injection, it provides enhancement inside and out! Some examples of these benefits include:

  • Replace lost volume within the skin
  • Increased collagen production
  • Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles

Areas for use

The targeted treatment areas would be:

  • Cheeks
  • Marionette lines
  • Smile lines

What does it do?

Sculptra works within the skin to encourage an increase in production of collagen that may have been slowed due to aging. This is not only allowing for a refreshed look provided by the volumization and plumping of the product, but also turning back the clock from within the skin through the addition of increased collagen.

What To Expect Afterwards:

Sculptra is a series of 3 treatments, 12 weeks apart, and lasting at least 2 years once fully completed. Immediately post-treatment, you may experience a “full” feeling within the targeted treatment area, and this is due to the water mixed with Sculptra. This typically resolves during the following day with roughly half of the water being absorbed, for a more relaxed and natural look, which is what you will expect to look like after your series of treatments.
