Boost collagen and reverse signs of aging

Sculptra FAQs

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra works through biostimulation, leveraging poly-L-lactic acid to prompt the body’s natural collagen production process. Once injected into the skin, poly-L-lactic acid microparticles provoke a controlled inflammatory response, activating fibroblasts—the cells responsible for collagen synthesis. Over time, as collagen accumulates, it enhances skin thickness and elasticity, smoothing wrinkles and restoring volume. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra’s effects appear gradually and naturally.

What happens during the Sculptra session?

During your Sculptra session, a trained healthcare provider will assess your facial structure and discuss your goals. They will then cleanse the treatment area and administer Sculptra injections using a fine needle. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of treatment. Afterward, you may experience mild swelling or bruising, but these effects usually subside within a few days, leaving you with refreshed and rejuvenated skin.

What are the side effects of Sculptra?

After a Sculptra session, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, redness, or tenderness at the injection sites. These side effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days.

Is there any downtime after Sculptra?

Following Sculptra injections, you can typically resume your daily activities immediately. While you may experience minor swelling or bruising, it shouldn’t interfere with your routine. However, avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24 hours post-treatment.

When will I see the Sculptra results?

You’ll notice initial improvement after your Sculptra session, primarily due to swelling. However, the full results emerge gradually over a few months as collagen production increases.

How long do the Sculptra results last?

Your Sculptra results are long-lasting, typically lasting up to two years. Regular maintenance treatments and touch-ups can help prolong your rejuvenated appearance further.
