Sculptra is one of the most popular biostimulating fillers, and for good reason. With results that last up to two years, Sculptra is one of the best investments you can make in your anti-aging regimen. At Gilpin Facial Plastics & Aesthetics, our knowledgeable injectors can help you learn more about our advanced filler options. 

What is Sculptra? 

Sculptra is an injectable filler that can reverse aging signs with more advanced methods than traditional hyaluronic acid fillers. Although it doesn’t produce instant results, it can produce some of the most long-lasting results out of any filler. Great for all ages, Sculptra is a great investment in your long-term cosmetic goals. During a consultation, Dr. David Gilpin and our injectors can help you learn more about how Sculptra can refresh your look.

How Does Sculptra Work? 

Sculptra is made with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biostimulating active ingredient. PLLA works by prompting the body to create new collagen, enhancing the skin’s quality, elasticity, and overall youthfulness. Sculptra works differently from traditional fillers which simply restore volume in the skin. Sculptra uses your body’s regenerative properties to reverse aging signs and achieve volume. The results can last much longer than traditional hyaluronic acid fillers which metabolize quickly. 

What Can Sculptra Treat? 

Sculptra is an excellent option for aging signs caused by volume loss like wrinkles, fine lines, and folds around the mouth and lower face. However, with the expertise of our knowledgeable injectors, it can be used all over the face, especially in areas that can benefit from natural volume. However, if you’re looking for lip or undereye fillers, our injectors can help you explore alternatives since Sculptra is not recommended for these areas. 

Who is a Candidate for Sculptra? 

Although Sculptra is one of the most effective fillers available for aging signs, it can benefit patients of all ages. We often recommend Sculptra to athletes or patients who are very active since traditional fillers can metabolize quickly – Sculptra does not metabolize like hyaluronic acid. It’s also a great option for patients who don’t need immediate results and want the long-term payoff of Sculptra. Finally, because Sculptra lasts so long, it’s a great option for patients who don’t want to worry about regular touch-ups or maintaining hyaluronic acid fillers. 

What Sets Sculptra Apart? 

The biggest benefit of Sculptra is its long-lasting results. For many patients, Sculptra can last as many as two years in many treatment areas, making it a great long-term investment in your anti-aging regimen. Also, because it prompts the body to generate new collagen, it’s an excellent way to prevent the effects of age-related collagen loss, especially when paired with other collagen-stimulating treatments. Finally, Sculptra may require multiple treatments which means your results can be built up based on your ideal look. 

Side Effects of Sculptra 

After your first Sculptra session, you can expect some minor redness and swelling. After each session, make sure to avoid exercise and hot environments like saunas or hot tubs. Sculptra does not produce immediate results – in fact, it can take 6-8 weeks before you notice an improvement in your treatment areas. At this point, you can return for additional treatments based on your goals. Once you undergo your full treatment process, results can last two years or more and you can maintain them for even longer with additional treatments.
