Sculptra is an excellent option for restoring a youthful appearance with effortlessly natural-appearing results. This poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) dermal filler does more than plump up wrinkles and replenish age-related fat loss. It is a bio stimulatory agent that triggers your own body to produce collagen– the protein that provides the structural support for our skin.

Sculptra filler is a long-lasting solution for many aging concerns since it helps the skin rejuvenate naturally by strengthening its inner structure and replacing lost collagen. Nurse Injectionist Caitlin ‘Cat’ has Sculptra as her favorite treatment for this very reason. It provides long lasting improvement in volume and skin quality, resulting in what she calls the “Sculptra Glow.”


Did we mention it can also be used on other parts of the body to revitalize loose skin around the knees and arms, smooth chest wrinkles, and even perk up the buttocks?


How is Sculptra Different?

Traditional dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a gel-like compound that attracts water and provides immediate volumizing results. Sculptra works differently as it targets the deeper layers of the dermis, where it stimulates collagen synthesis. With time, the skin’s underlying structure becomes thicker and more elastic, helping to restore more youthful contours.

Sculptra begins to work within a few weeks after injection and gradually enhances collagen levels to improve the skin’s structural foundation. Since collagen regrowth takes time, results do not occur overnight. Most patients will see gradual improvements in fullness and volume within three to nine months. This is an added benefit, as there is no chance of overcorrecting, and results will be subtler.

“The results are very natural, and full-face volumization and improvement in skin texture and fine lines can be achieved with one product. The Sculptra “glow” is a very real thing, and that is why it’s my product of choice when rejuvenating my own face,” says Dr. Smith.


What Should I Expect from Sculptra Treatment?


The skin is cleansed and numbed with a topical anesthetic cream. Because it is injected into the deep dermis, the filler contains lidocaine to minimize any discomfort. After the injections, the site is gently massaged to help the poly-L-lactic acid molecules distribute evenly for optimal results. Most treatments take less than thirty minutes here in our YS MediSpa.


How Long Does Sculptra Last?


Sculptra lasts a minimum of two years and even longer when a maintenance schedule is followed. This longevity is another key advantage of this injectable filler.


What Sculptra Procedures Do You Offer?


Our cosmetic nurse injectors utilize this collagen-boosting filler in a wide range of non-surgical procedures, including:

  Liquid facelift: A combination of Sculptra, neuromodulators, and Kybella can provide full face revolumization while minimzing lines, plumping wrinkles, contouring features, and lifting sagging skin.

Smooth wrinkles: Sculptra can be used to smooth etched wrinkles on the cheeks and around the mouth caused by smiling.

   Non-surgical butt lift: A non-invasive procedure that provides lift and increases the size and shape of the buttocks with targeted injections of Sculptra.

   Decollete rejuvenation: Sculptra fills in wrinkles caused by sleeping positions and sun damage that frequently develop in the décolletage. Laser therapy with IPL can be added to treat redness and uneven pigmentation.

   Knee and arm laxity rejuvenation: Sculptra can be used to improve the appearance of loose or sagging skin around the knees and on the upper arms.

    Jaw Contouring:  Sculptra can be used to define the jawline or get rid of sagging jowls.


How Many Treatments Will I Need?

This will vary based on individual concerns, but most patients seeking facial rejuvenation will benefit from two to three Sculptra treatments spaced four weeks apart. The number of vials required will depend on your needs and desired treatment goal. Once you achieve the desired result, we recommend maintenance every 1-2 years to continue to stimulate collagen production.
