Restore Facial Volume

Sculptra is an injectable filler that restores facial volume and definition and smooths wrinkles and fine lines. Its active ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid, stimulates collagen production to plump up the skin and improve your natural contours. Sculptra can be used on the cheeks, chin, temples, and other areas of the face to restore volume and shape, leaving you looking fresh and vibrant. The results are natural because they’re based on your body’s innate collagen production processes.

Sculptra Corrects:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Facial creases and folds
  • Nasolabial folds around the nose
  • Marionette lines around the mouth
  • Perioral wrinkles around the lips
  • Age-related loss of midface volume
  • Gaunt and hollow cheeks
  • Gaunt and hollow temples
  • Recessed or insufficiently projected chin

How Sculptra Works

Sculptra works by restoring your skin’s collagen reserves. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds skin tissues together, making your skin look firm, taut, and voluminous. The gradual loss of collagen is the primary reason for most signs of aging. Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, which catalyzes collagen production at the treatment sites. Over time, your skin looks smoother, fuller, and more youthful, and your facial contours look more defined.

The Experience

TruWellnessMD ensures a comfortable, personalized Sculptra experience. Our certified injectors examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, mark the potential treatment areas, and curate a personalized treatment plan. The medical provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel for comfort. The appropriate units of Sculptra are carefully and strategically injected into targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles. The number of injections necessary will depend on your goals and condition.

Anesthesia: Topical (Optional)

Sculptra is a painless treatment, with or without topical anesthesia. Most patients say the sensation is similar to a little pinch. But we can also apply a numbing gel on your skin before the treatment to ensure optimal comfort.

Duration: 10 to 30 Minutes

Your Sculptra treatment should take 10 to 30 minutes. Most of the treatment time is dedicated to consultation because the injections only take a few minutes. As such, your first session may take around 30 minutes, but most other treatments can be completed in 10 minutes.

Side Effects: Minimal

Sculptra causes minimal post-treatment side effects, such as swelling, tenderness, pain, bruising, itching, lump formations, and needle marks on the injection sites. Other side effects, like headaches, dry skin, and peeling, are rare. The side effects dissipate in a few days.

Downtime: None

Sculptra doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume daily activities and work immediately, but high-intensity activities and direct sunlight exposure should be avoided for a few days.

Results: 2 to 3 Months

You’ll notice temporary improvements immediately after the treatment, but these will fade within a few days. The results appear gradually over 2 to 3 months as your body produces new collagen fibers. The results are cumulative, so they’ll improve after each session. Most patients need 3 to 4 sessions spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart for optimal results.

Longevity: Up to 2 Years

Sculptra produces long-lasting results. Clinical studies have shown that the results last up to 2 years after the final session with optimal treatment. You can also extend the results with maintenance treatments after a year.

Frequency: Every 1 to 2 Years

After the initial round of 3 to 4 sessions, you can opt for Sculptra treatments every 1 to 2 years to maintain an effortlessly youthful appearance.
