What Is Sculptra, And Is it Right For You?

We will eventually experience the downsides of aging, whether we like it or not. Collagen and elastin, two critical components of youthful skin, gradually deplete as we age, developing fine lines and wrinkles. Sculptra, a one-of-a-kind dermal filler, is available at Lakeside Aesthetics and Skincare to treat wrinkles and restore your face’s original contours.

Sculptra goes beyond the simple “filling” of the face, as its name suggests. It helps the skin renew naturally from inside and out because it stimulates the body to produce more collagen. Compared to other injectables, the results are slow in coming but noticeable and natural looking, lasting a long time. There is nothing else like it on the market for dermal fillers. If you’re ready to turn back the hands of time, this injectable treatment may be for you.

What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra, a dermal filler, has been available to patients since 1999. When the FDA finally green-lighted it in 2004, it was the first treatment of its kind for HIV patients experiencing lipoatrophy. Facial fat loss, known as lipoatrophy, manifests visually as hollowed cheeks, deep folds, and creases.

The FDA gave Sculptra Aesthetic its stamp of approval in 2014 so that it could be used to treat facial wrinkles and folds. The critical ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). Although this collagen stimulator’s effects can last up to two years, they are so subtle that only the most observant of individuals would notice them.

Sculptra has been studied extensively and found to be safe and effective, but it shouldn’t be used by those who are allergic to any of its ingredients or have a condition that causes uneven scarring.

Why Sculptra Is Right For You

Dermal fillers like Sculptra are a subset of this market. The FDA has authorized the use of multiple dermal fillers, including Sculptra. Sculptra is different from other wrinkle fillers because it stimulates collagen production rather than simply filling in the creases and folds. Sculptra isn’t the only dermal filler on the market, but here are some reasons this option may be the best option due to its many benefits.

1.) Rejuvenates The Skin From Inside And Out

The ability of this dermal filler to promote new collagen production and restore the facial framework is fundamental to its many desirable cosmetic effects. Wrinkles, lines, and folds on the face will soften after this dermal filler is injected.

As we age, our skin naturally thins, which can lessen the prominence of facial bones like the cheekbones. This product can add volume to the face’s temples and other sparse areas.

With this injectable, you can make a world of difference in the appearance of your face by bringing back its youthful contours and plumping up skin that has thinned with age. This filler is commonly referred to as a “liquid facelift” due to its lifting and revitalizing effects that do not require surgery.

2.) Natural-Looking Results

In most cases, four Sculptra injections are spaced out over a few weeks. A “mesh” can be created beneath the skin by injecting it in different directions. Therefore, once the filler is in place, it provides full coverage and can support collagen growth by acting as a scaffold.

Collagen development can be sluggish, so it may take a few months for the facial improvements to become noticeable. However, the gradual development of effects allows for a more subtle and natural look for the patient. Having “work done” won’t be such a sudden and mysterious occurrence for you. On the other hand, we can modify the Sculptra dosage to meet your specific requirements if you’d like something flashier. However, Sculptra always produces realistic-looking impressions.

3.) Low-Maintenance Method

This filler’s preliminary series of treatments can be finished in under an hour, and they have no downtime. Patients frequently request these appointments during the lunch hour. The results of your first round of injections should last up to two years, so you won’t have to worry about coming back every few months for maintenance treatments or top-offs. You can stop thinking about this filler right now.

4.) Sculptra Can Be Used For Body Contouring

Although most people know that this dermal filler is injected into the face to reduce the signs of aging and make it look younger, they might not be aware that it can also be used to enhance other body parts, such as the buttocks. When applied to the buttocks, you get the same result. This filler works by kicking off the body’s collagen production process, which gradually firms and tightens the treated area over a few months after the procedure.

Sculptra Procedure

During your first visit, a provider will want to know your entire medical history, from congenital disabilities to drug allergies.

Upon your first Sculptra treatment appointment, your provider will mark the injection sites on your skin and give you a thorough cleansing. A local anesthetic can be rubbed on the painful spot. Your provider will inject several very small needles under your skin.

You shouldn’t feel any lingering effects from the treatment to return to your regular activities. Your provider will give you any necessary details.

After Procedure

If you follow some basic instructions in the days following your treatment, you’ll be back to your routine in no time. We propose massaging the injection site for 5 minutes, five times daily. Self-massage, in this way, helps spread Poly-L-Lactic acid all over the body. Patients should avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds for several days after receiving an injection.

On the other hand, additional meetings may be scheduled shortly. For several weeks, the typical patient receives four treatments. Different patients require different cosmetic procedures.


Intent on undoing the signs of aging and regaining your youth? The procedures for using this impressive dermal filler are quick and easy, and the results last for a very long time. There are no reasons why you should not try out this treatment.  If you’re interested, contact Lakeside Aesthetics and Skincare right away to schedule an appointment.
