The Sculptra Aesthetic: Smooth, Voluminous Skin

The Sculptra facial enhances your complexion for total skin rejuvenation. This treatment stimulates collagen production, firms your skin, and adds volume in areas where aging has taken it away. 

Many patients have achieved desirable results for their complexions with this FDA-approved skin rejuvenation treatment. So what is Sculptra, and where can you get a Sculptra facial? Read on to find out more.  

What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a type of dermal filler injectable that smooths and hydrates your skin. Dermal fillers are used to fill in wrinkles and fine lines and add volume to your skin. These injectables contain poly-L-lactic acid, a compound that stimulates your body’s production of collagen.

These injectables are approved by the FDA to treat skin volume loss and moderate signs of aging. They are safe and effective, with hundreds of patients getting the results they desire. 

Collagen is a strong skin fiber that keeps your skin firm and elastic when you’re young. As you get older, your body produces fewer of these skin fibers. As a result, your skin starts to form wrinkles, sag, and become dull. With Sculptra facials, you can reverse some of these effects of aging for a more youthful complexion. 

Sculptra Facials 

Sculptra facials are different from traditional facials. This facial treatment helps your body build collagen for a stronger skin matrix. Sculptra facials also combat the visible signs of aging like volume loss, dryness, and wrinkles. This is the ultimate anti-aging facial for patients who want smooth, supple skin. 

Aside from the injections, Sculptra facials include anti-aging skin care products. We encourage you to follow up with nourishing products that will protect and hydrate your skin after your Sculptra facial. We can give recommendations for the best skin care products that will complement your Sculptra results. 

What to Expect: Sculptra Aesthetic Results

Sculptra injections contain collagen-boosting ingredients. It takes time for your body to use these compounds to strengthen and firm your skin. You can expect to see optimal anti-aging skin results two to three months after your Sculptra facial. 

Your body will start to produce collagen immediately after the injection process. However, it will take a while for the results to show. If you trust the process and keep up with a healthy skin care routine, you will see the Sculptra aesthetic in the next few months. 

As your skin matrix gets stronger, you will notice a smoother, more even complexion. Your skin will take on a lifted appearance, and your wrinkles will smooth out. Areas where you experience skin volume loss will look suppler and plumper.

This treatment produces natural Sculptra aesthetic results. Most patients look naturally more youthful once results set in; those around them don’t even know they’ve had a Sculptra facial done.

How Long Do Results Last?

Most patients need two or three Sculptra appointments to add enough volume to their faces. Since your body will begin producing its own collagen, the results can last for a long time. Your body’s collagen lifespan is typically around seven years. 

Most patients continue to get Sculptra injections to maintain their results. This helps keep your skin youthful and supple. With maintenance injections, you should see your Sculptra aesthetic results for many years after your treatment.  

Good Candidates for Sculptra 

Sculptra treatments are non-invasive and do not require surgery. Patients who want to get rid of wrinkles, fine lines, creases, and volume loss in their skin are good candidates for Sculptra. There are a few limitations to who can get Sculptra treatments. 

If you have an allergy to lidocaine, these injections are not right for you. They contain lidocaine for anesthetic purposes to numb the areas of injection. This is for patient comfort during the Sculptra facial process. 

Pregnant women or women who are nursing should avoid Sculptra treatments. Certain ingredients may interact with your baby and cause unpleasant side effects. While this treatment is FDA-approved, it is not approved for pregnant or nursing mothers. 

If you have an autoimmune condition like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, your body can react negatively to Sculptra injections. You should not get this treatment if you suffer from an autoimmune disease. We may have other anti-aging treatments that work better for you in these cases. 

All patients who want to get this treatment should have realistic expectations. This is an effective volumizing and collagen-boosting anti-aging treatment. However, results take a few months to become visible, and they will not transform your face. Results will look natural and give you a more youthful facial appearance. 

Sculptra Questions 

This facial treatment is FDA-approved for treating volume loss in aging skin. Poly-L-lactic acid is a natural ingredient that your body produces on its own. As you age, it produces less of this compound, which is where Sculptra injections come in. 

We will book a consultation with you before starting the treatment to determine whether you are a good candidate. We can answer any questions or concerns about the process, if you have them. These face injectables come with built-in numbing ingredients that will increase your comfort during your treatments.
