What is Sculptra?

Whether we like it or not, aging happens. We lose the collagen and elastin that give our skin a youthful glow. This causes wrinkles and fine lines to develop. There are fillers that can help, including Sculptra, however, it is different than all other fillers out there. So, what is Sculptra?

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra in Northern Virginia does more than just fill in lines and wrinkles. It works with your body. Once it is injected, it stimulates the production of collagen. This helps the skin to naturally renew itself. Your results develop gradually, look completely natural, and last longer than most other injectables. This is a filler unlike any other. For many reasons, Sculptra is becoming one of the most popular dermal filler treatments.

“I like to use Sculptra with some patients because their facial structure does not lend itself to a “traditional” filler such as Juvederm or Restylane.  Sculptra goes in like a filler, but is really a collagen stimulator which promotes natural collagen growth.  Due to this, it does take longer to see the results.” – Dr. Hayre

Natural Results

Over a period of several weeks, patients will receive a series of four injections. These injections are done is different directions to create a weave like pattern under the skin’s surface. Once in place, the filler provides thorough coverage and serves as a foundation for collagen production. Since collagen development does take time, it can be several months before you see full results. But this gradual onset of results gives patients a more natural, and less dramatic, appearance. You won’t have the “had work done” look that many people worry about.  

Comprehensive Rejuvenation

This dermal filler is different. It works to repair the underlying foundation of the face by boosting collagen production. This offers other benefits as well. The fullness achieved with Sculptra helps ease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.

Also, Sculptra can be used to soften bony areas like the cheekbones, or plump areas of the face that grow shallow over time, like the temples. Sculptra restores the youthful contours of your face and can broadly improve the entire face, earning it the nickname of “liquid facelift”.

Long Lasting

Since Sculptra helps to rebuild the infrastructure of the face, the results last much longer than other injectables. Typically, patients enjoy their results for two years or longer. Bonus, even if you decide not to have a subsequent treatment done, you are still ahead of the aging game because of the extra boost in collagen.

Low Maintenance

A lot of people really enjoy that Sculptra is so low maintenance. While it involves an initial series of treatment, once you have completed these you will be good for two years or more. Each treatment is done in less than an hour and requires no downtime. You can even have it done on your lunch break. And once you are finished with the initial series, that’s it. You don’t have to worry about going back for maintenance treatments every few months. You have years of results to enjoy.

No Allergy Concern

Since Sculptra contains a synthetic Poly-L-Lactic Acid, not hyaluronic acid, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. Once it has boosted the collagen development in your skin, the Poly-L-Lactic acid naturally fades from your body.

Sculptra Butt Lift

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better … while Sculptra is most often used for anti-aging, it can also be used to give your butt a perky lift. It works in the same way, by generating collagen in the butt. This lifts and tones the buttocks over a period of several months.
