What is Sculptra?

Sculptra Aesthetic stimulates your skin’s own natural collagen production to increase overall facial volume. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, this is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)- based treatment. Once injected, it begins working deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s inner structure and restoring its volume. As the Sculptra Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed by the skin, they stimulate collagen production, creating a framework that helps restore facial volume.

Why is collagen important to the skin as we age?

Age-induced collagen loss weakens your skin’s inner structure, reducing its ability to maintain elasticity and moisture. This weakened inner structure can lead to lines, wrinkles, and folds, as well as loss of skin volume and support. Dermal fillers address only lines, wrinkles, and folds, not collagen loss or skin structure.

What kind of results can I expect?

Sculptra Aesthetic works subtly and gradually to restore a youthful-looking appearance. Over the course of several treatment sessions (an average of 3 over a few months) Sculptra Aesthetic produces results that emerge over time, working subtly and gradually for results that can last more than 2 years! As with any injection, you may experience side effects such as swelling, redness and bruising, which typically resolve on their own. Individual results may vary.

How can I help get the most out of my treatment?

Remember that Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time and requires several treatment sessions. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. Sculptra works to gradually replace lost collagen. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • Do not consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish oil, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • Schedule your Dermal Filler and Botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending. Temporary bruising and or swelling may be apparent in that time period.
  • Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a cold sore or rash on your face.
  • Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.
