What It Is

As we start to age, our natural production of collagen and elastin starts to decrease. This results in a loss of volume and may cause sagging, folds, and an increase in skin laxity

Sculptra is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that can naturally help restore your skin’s collagen and elastin. It contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) which is a biocompatible and bioabsorbable molecule that stimulates collagen production. It is injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin where collagen formation takes place. This will allow your skin to naturally produce collagen over the course of 3-6 months to help restore the loss of volume and skin laxity. 

In comparison to dermal fillers, Sculptra helps to stimulate collagen production for natural, long-lasting results. 

Treatment Areas

Sculptra can be used to treat the following areas with folds and increased skin laxity: 

  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Marionette Lines 
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Knees

How to Prepare

Before receiving a treatment, you will meet with a nurse injector for a consultation who will create an individualized treatment plan based on your unique goals and concerns. They will also determine how much product is required to reach your treatment goal. 

Leading up to the treatment, it is recommended to do the following to ensure you are well prepared to decrease the risk of any potential side effects and complications: 

  • Schedule your treatment at least 2 weeks before a major social event to allow time for any swelling/bruising 
  • Avoid alcohol 24-48 hours before your treatment 
  • Prepare your skin with your regular skincare routine to ensure it is optimally hydrated
  • Use sunscreen to protect your skin from any UV damage and skin irritations 
  • Avoid the use of blood thinners, if possible, for 24-48 hours before your treatment to reduce the risk of bruising, including: Aspirin, ibuprofen, Omega-3 supplements 

How It Works

Once your treatment plan has been established with a nurse injector, you will then be able to undergo a Sculptra treatment! The treatment can take approximately 30-45 minutes, and that’s really it! Although the treatment is a minimally invasive injectable procedure, there may be some swelling, bruising, and tenderness immediately after the treatment. Not to worry! The immediate discomfort is temporary and will begin to gradually decrease within the next 24 hours.

Results You Can Expect

With all Sculptra treatments, results can be seen as early as 3-6 months after your initial treatment. Results will depend on your skin’s ability to naturally create collagen and elastin. This process can take anywhere between 3-6 months after your treatment and varies between patients. Depending on the severity of your loss of volume, you may need multiple treatments for optimal results and to maintain your results. Clinical studies have shown results lasting up to 25 months post-treatment!

Potential Complications

With all medical procedures, potential complications are a common concern for patients. The most common concern is that it may look too obvious that you had some work done. Not to worry! Our nurse injectors are highly experienced at APT Medical Aesthetics and will always ensure patients leave feeling their best while still maintaining their natural features. 

The great thing about Sculptra is that it is bioabsorbable, meaning it will be absorbed back into your skin to naturally build collagen for lift and rejuvenation! 

With all injectable procedures, it is common for patients to experience some immediate swelling, redness and bruising. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities after the treatment without any issues. 

Below are a list of things to keep in mind when you’re recovering and enjoying your results! 

  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours post-treatment to avoid excessive bruising
  • Avoid exposure to heat and sun for 24 hours post-treatment 
  • Use sunscreen to protect your skin when stepping outside 
  • Avoid strenuous activities and exercise that will induce sweating for 24 hours post-treatment 
  • Use cold compresses to the treatment areas as needed to help reduce swelling and tenderness

Sculptra

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Sculptra is made up of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that is suspended in an aqueous solution. PLLA has been applied in medicine for over 30 years, but Sculptra is the first FDA approved PLLA collagen stimulator.

Sculptra is indicated for use in areas of facial rejuvenation such as cheeks, nasolabial folds and Marionette lines. It can also be used in patients with certain medical conditions that may directly cause rapid lipoatrophy. Sculptra can also be used off-label in certain body areas with skin laxity concerns such as the neck, chest, abdomen, thighs, and knees.

Your procedure will begin with a consultation with our nurse injector who will work with you to determine the best treatment plan based on your desired outcomes and concerns. The treatment itself involves the injection of Sculptra into the dermal layer of the skin. This procedure is minimally invasive and can take between 30-45 minutes.

Sculptra treatments are recommended for patients who are interested in replenishing the loss of collagen and elastin that causes sagging, folds, and increased skin laxity. The PLLA molecules in Sculptra allow for an increase of collagen production in the dermal layer of the skin. This process can take between 3-6 months after your initial treatment.

Clinical studies have shown results lasting up to 25 months after your Sculptra treatments. The duration of results also depends on several factors including the initial severity of folds, the number of treatments received, and other patient-influenced factors.

With all injectable treatments, patients may experience some minor swelling, redness, and bruising. These effects are usually immediate and are temporary. Most patients go about their day and daily activities immediately after the treatment. However, it may be a good idea to plan your treatment around social events. We recommend booking a treatment 2 weeks before a major social event for sufficient healing time.
