Sculptra® Aesthetic is a dermal treatment with natural and long-lasting results. Sculptra® isn’t a filler or a neurotoxin, it’s a gel that encourages your body to start producing collagen and repair your skin naturally. When you’re looking for a subtle but impactful change, Sculptra® is often the right way to go.

What Is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® Aesthetic is a long-lasting collagen stimulator that helps your skin rebuild itself. Your skin is supported by the presence of collagen in the deep dermis. As you get older, your body may start producing less collagen, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Stimulators like Sculptra® help restore this production, allowing the natural repair and restoration of your skin.


Sculptra® is not a filler, so it may not have an immediate visual effect. Because it’s an injection, there may be slight swelling immediately after the procedure, but this should fade over a day or two. Your skin will then start to heal itself over a period of months. Expect to see noticeable results as your skin gets tighter, softer, and healthier. The smoothness created by Sculptra® is natural, and the results can last for more than two years.


How Sculptra® Works

Sculptra® is a gel that contains poly-L-lactic acid. Once injected into the skin, this gel spreads out and is slowly absorbed. The presence of poly-L-lactic acid encourages the production of collagen. As its support structures are restored, the skin begins to look smoother, and the wrinkles start to disappear.


Sculptra® Aesthetic requires a healing process and multiple treatments across an average of three appointments. Your specialist will monitor your skin’s progress to decide whether additional injections are needed; some people only need two, while others can benefit from four or more. Attending your additional appointments is important to make sure your treatment takes proper effect. The treatment period typically lasts several months, while the results can last for years at a time.


What Can Sculptra® Treat?

Sculptra® Aesthetic provides subtle, natural, and long-lasting results. This treatment is most frequently used to correct deep nasolabial folds, which are also known as smile lines. However, Sculptra® can also be used on other facial wrinkles that can benefit from the cross-hatch injection technique. Sculptra® is frequently used on the neck and jawline, two areas that suffer greatly from the collapse caused by a lack of collagen production.


Sculptra® is a good choice when you want to appear more youthful and less exhausted, but you also have time to wait for natural-looking effects. Unlike fillers, which increase facial volume immediately but fade after a short time, Sculptra® will cause natural restructuring that can last for years.


Frequently Asked Questions About Sculptra® 

Is Sculptra better than fillers?

Although Sculptra and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are both used to restore loss of volume, their mechanics of function are quite different. Sculptra is made of particles known as Poly – L - Acid (PLLA) that help to regenerate and stimulate collagen. HA fillers metabolize through the body over a period of 6-12 months, while the stimulating effects of the PLLA molecules of Sculptra create longer lasting results.

What should I avoid after Sculptra treatment?

After Sculptra, you will want to avoid alcohol, extreme heat, direct sun exposure, and blood thinning medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen.

When will I see the results of Sculptra?

Patients state seeing results of their treatment as early as one month, but in most cases Sculptra will take about three to four months for maximum benefits. As the skin slowly builds up collagen and elastin, you’ll see more noticeable results. Patient results will vary.

How long do the results of Sculptra last?

Sculptra typically lasts up to three to five years, however patient results do vary.

How many Sculptra treatments do I need?

Each plan is customizable to fit your needs. In most cases we recommend a vial of Sculptra per decade of life to get started. For example, if you are age 40, we typically would suggest 4 vials of Sculptra to optimize your results.

Who is a good candidate for Sculptra?

Anyone who may be looking to soften fine lines and wrinkles, improve the tone and texture of your skin, increase volume and rebuild your own natural collagen for a more youthful you.

How much does Sculptra cost?

Sculptra is purchased in vials and the number of vials is dependent on the patient’s desired outcome and treatment plan. Contact Zuliani Facial Aesthetics at 248-322-3362 to schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more.
