What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler that started its journey in 1999 as a treatment for lipoatrophy in people living with HIV, i.e., it helped patients make up for the loss of facial fat tissues and volume. However, in 2014, Sculptra became a popular cosmetic treatment to reduce wrinkles and enhance facial volume. Sculptra is different from most other dermal fillers because it’s a collagen stimulator, i.e., it encourages your body to create collagen fibers, producing natural volume over an extended period.

How does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra is a dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a naturally-occurring and biodegradable component classified as a collagen stimulator. When injected into the facial tissues with the wrinkles of skin laxity, Sculptra provides an immediate lift as the PPLA fills out the wrinkles. However, PLLS also makes your body produce new collagen fibers in the treatment areas, restoring your skin’s youthful collagen reserves. Over time, as your body produces more collagen, your skin looks naturally youthful, firm, and smooth.

Why is Collagen Important?

Collagen is one of the primary components responsible for your skin’s strength, structure, and firmness. It’s a structural framework for the skin, holding it upright against the force of gravity. However, as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce new collagen fibers diminishes, leading to a loss of facial volume, sagging skin, and wrinkles. As such, replacing collagen or encouraging your body to speed up its natural collagen production rate is the best way to roll back the signs of aging.

Sculptra Treatment Overview

Step 1: Consultation

Here at N Aesthetics, your treatment of Sculptra in Kennewick will start with a private consultation with the cosmetic provider, who’ll review your medical history, examine the treatment areas, and discuss your cosmetic goals. Based on the assessment, they’ll determine if you’re a suitable candidate and, if so, curate the ideal treatment plan. They’ll also calibrate the ideal Sculptra dosage for your specific needs.

Step 2: Procedure

The provider will cleanse the treatment areas and apply a topical numbing cream to ensure a comfortable experience. They’ll also map the treatment spots on your face to ensure optimal precision. Once you’re prepared, the provider will deliver highly-calibrated Sculptra doses into the targeted regions using ultrafine needles.

Step 3: Recovery

You’ll experience some redness, tenderness, discomfort, itching, bumps, and swelling for a few days after the treatment. However, you can resume all your daily activities and work without any downtime. You should also massage the treatment area for a few minutes a day for a few days. The provider will also ask you to avoid tanning beds.

Sculptra Results

You might notice some results after the side effects dissipate, but most of the results will appear gradually as your body produces collagen. The results will start appearing in a few weeks and continue improving over several months. You might need three or more treatments spaced out over multiple months for optimal results. The final results will last for up to 24 months, longer than the results of HA fillers.
