What Is Sculptra Used For? 6 Reasons To Consider Treatment

Nothing can prevent old age from catching up to us eventually. The breakdown of collagen and elastin, the skin’s structural proteins, leads to developing wrinkles and creases as we age. That’s why we now offer Sculptra, a new dermal filler that may reduce the appearance of wrinkles and replenish lost volume in the face.

Sculptra differs from traditional dermal procedures in that it does more than merely add volume to the skin. It promotes natural skin renewal by increasing collagen production in the body. The results are slower, subtler, and more natural than those produced by most other injectables and persist for much longer. This dermal filler is entirely original, unlike anything else on the market. If you are ready to turn back the clock, this injectable technique is worth considering.

Why Consider Sculptra Treatment?

The injectable treatment known as Sculptra has only been around for a short time. Improved collagen production aids the battle against wrinkles and skin laxity, hence why Sculptra emphasizes this feature. 

Collagen, a protein found in the body’s connective tissues, makes our skin look and feel firm and young. However, our bodies create less collagen as we age, resulting in droopy skin and wrinkles. Sagging skin, sunken cheeks, unsightly indentations, and depressions are some of the less desirable side effects of losing subcutaneous fat.

Over time, Sculptra’s stimulation of natural collagen production will lessen the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. Even deeper wrinkles and lines on the face can be diminished with its help, giving you a more youthful appearance.

But the question is, how is Sculptra different from conventional dermal fillers? While Sculptra can stimulate collagen production, so can other fillers. Here are six reasons why Sculptra deserves your attention.

1.) Offers Natural-Looking Impression

Sculptra injections are typically administered in four treatments spread out over several weeks. A sequence of injections is applied in different directions to build a mesh-like structure under the skin. This technique gives full coverage and serves as a foundation upon which new collagen might grow.

The collagen-building process will, without a doubt, take some time. Changes to the face may not be immediately noticeable. Although the effects take time to show, patients will enjoy the benefits of a more natural, less enhanced appearance. Your overnight progression from amateur to professional will leave no one with the slightest suspicion that you had any surgical procedures performed on your facial features. 

2.) Long-Lasting Outcomes

Sculptra may be the most durable and practical injectable filler on the market since it encourages the body to create its own collagen, thereby reconstructing the face’s fundamental foundation. The benefits often last for at least two years for the recipients. If you decide against a second fluid facelift, the extra collagen you produce will help you fight the effects of aging in the long term.

3.) Rejuvenates Your Skin From Inside And Out

The cosmetic effects of Sculptra’s ability to rebuild the underlying facial structure are primarily due to the product’s capacity to induce collagen synthesis. When this dermal filler is appropriately injected, it plumps up the face, hiding the symptoms of aging like fine lines and wrinkles that were previously obvious.

The skin surrounding the cheekbones thins and softens with age, revealing the underlying bone structure. Sculptra can restore lost volume to the temples and other areas of the face that are thin with age.

In regions where the skin is already thin, Sculptra can be utilized to restore a more youthful contour to the face. This dermal filler is often called a “liquid facelift” due to the lifting and rejuvenating effects it can have without surgery.

4.) Quick And Easy

While an initial round of Sculptra treatments is necessary, individual sessions typically last no more than an hour, and there is no downtime associated with Sculptra. Some folks even use their lunch break to see a doctor. It’s that quick and easy to experience this treatment. 

After the first set of injections, you’ll be completely fine and able to resume your normal activities. It’s nice to know that you won’t need to come back for a maintenance treatment or booster dose every few months for the next two years. You can stop thinking about it now; this excellent filler needs no further thought on your part.

5.) Minimal Risks

Hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient in dermal fillers because of its remarkable ability to bind to and hold water within the skin. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, an ingredient in dissolvable sutures.

Due to its synthetic nature, poly-L-lactic acid does not cause allergic responses and does not require allergy testing before usage, unlike natural dermal fillers. Poly-L-lactic acid is naturally removed from the body once it has encouraged collagen formation.

6.) Sculptra Can Be Used On Any Part Of The Face

Dermal fillers are most frequently used on the nasolabial folds (laugh lines) and the midface. Sculptra, on the other hand, can be used anywhere on the face, from the temples to the jawline, the forehead to the cheeks, and the midface to the lower face. You might find that Sculptra injections are the best option if you have several issues you want to address in one go. 

What Happens During The Procedure?

This method of injectable cosmetic treatment is not vastly different from others of its kind. First, a local anesthetic is put in place, and then the area is cleaned thoroughly. After injecting Sculptra beneath the skin, the Poly-L-Lactic Acid will be evenly distributed using a massage for best results.

First, the provider will inject the filler into several different areas and then massage the area to spread the filler out. If the injections cause mild swelling, the patient should use cold packs. The injection site may experience some mild swelling and redness, but your provider will review treatment options with you. Most patients can resume their daily activities right away; those who don’t have any visible signs of bleeding or wounds may even be able to apply makeup a few hours after treatment.


Sculptra has revolutionized the field of skin rejuvenation because it is a non-invasive way to treat the visible signs of aging, like wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. Our comprehensive medical facility, Complete Care Aesthetics, now offers Sculptra to its patients. This injectable treatment tightens loose skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the body to produce more collagen.
