Sculptra injections before and after; Sculptra is a facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen. Results can last more than two years.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—an underlying cause of facial aging—for results that can last more than two years. Sculptra Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful looking appearance. Treatments are scheduled about three weeks apart, and most patients need three treatments total in one year.
Sculptra Injections Before and After The Sculptra procedure is an injectable treatment that stimulates your own body’s natural collagen production to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles.
The best results are achieved with a series of three treatments, spaced four weeks apart. Each treatment consists of multiple small injections into the deep dermis of the face or hands.
The injections may cause minor bleeding that stops quickly, but there is no downtime required after the procedure.
Results typically last two years or more.
Sculptra can be used on the face and body to add volume and fullness to muscular areas, such as buttocks, calves, hips, shoulders and upper arms
Sculptra is used in the treatment of deep facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (running between your nose and mouth)
The treatment gives a more natural look than other injectable fillers. Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production, which thickens the skin and restores volume to the area being treated. Collagen is gradually produced over the course of several months so that the results improve gradually. The results typically last up to 2 years.

Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart. Each injection session should be spaced at least six weeks apart.
Is Sculptra Worth the Money?
A lot of my patients are asking me this question. We’ll look at what it is, the cost, risks and alternatives. So here’s a quick rundown of Sculptra and whether it’s worth it.
Sculptra is an injectable filler for facial rejuvenation which was introduced in 1999. It was approved for use in humans in 2004 by the FDA in treating lipoatrophy (loss of fat) in HIV patients. In 2009, the FDA approved its use in treating other facial lipoatrophy conditions and wrinkles.
What makes Sculptra different from all the other fillers?
As we age, our skin loses some of its collagen or natural “scaffolding” that keeps skin smooth and youthful looking. To restore this scaffolding, we often think about fillers like Juvederm or Restylane which plump up the area to smooth out lines and wrinkles. But Sculptra works differently. Instead of just filling up lines and wrinkles like other fillers, it helps replace lost collagen so that your skin looks smoother and younger over time.
Sculptra, a injectable dermal filler, is an ideal treatment for those who are looking to enhance the appearance of lines and wrinkles with subtle results. It works gradually over time to gently support facial skin and bring back natural contours. The effects of Sculptra can last up to two years.
The most common areas that Sculptra can be used on include: temples, cheeks, chin, jawline, smile lines (nasolabial folds) and marionette lines.
Sculptra is unique in that it triggers your skin’s own collagen production. This means you’ll enjoy the benefits of this treatment long after it is administered.
It’s important to note that the results of Sculptra don’t appear immediately after treatment. Clinical studies have shown that three injections over a period of three months will result in a gradual improvement and increase in volume in the area injected
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and supple. As we age, our collagen breaks down, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle. Sculptra works gradually in a series of treatments—on average, three injection sessions over a period of a few months—to replace lost collagen and provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance. After the initial injection sessions, results can last more than two years.
How does Sculptra work?
As Sculptra Aesthetic works gradually in the deep dermis (the middle layer of the skin) where your skin’s scaffolding structure is located, you will have time to see how your appearance gradually improves over the course of treatment. This gradual effect allows you to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment without any downtime or recovery period.
Sculptra is an option for those who are not interested in surgery, such as a facelift. The injections are meant to be done slowly over a period of time. It will give you a longer lasting result than the injectable fillers and more natural looking results as it stimulates your body’s own collagen production. The cost of Sculptra varies depending on how much product is used and how many sessions you need. You should check with local doctors to see who has experience using Sculptra because it is an injectable that requires some expertise to use properly.
Caution: Sculptra is a medical procedure and must be performed by a licensed professional such as a doctor or nurse practitioner.
It’s also important to know that Sculptra must be injected deep into the skin, so it’s not right for anyone with a fear of needles. You’ll need numbing cream to reduce the pain, and you’re likely to have some swelling, bruising, and redness for about a week.
Sculptra results take time to develop; for some people, it can take 6 months for full results to show. But once they do, they last longer than the results from other fillers – up to 2 years. The treatment is not permanent, but it does require fewer follow-up treatments than most other fillers.
Costs vary from one region to another and from one clinician to another. It’s best to go to someone who has experience in administering Sculptra (not all injectors have done this), and find out how many treatments you need upfront. Most people need at least two sessions spaced several weeks apart, with follow-ups every six months or so. Expect each session to cost between $1,200 and $2,000 (the price is based on how much product you need).
Sculptra is an injectable filler that helps to smooth out wrinkles and folds in the facial tissue. It’s also used to correct facial volume loss in people with HIV or AIDS. The most frequently injected areas are the cheeks, nasolabial folds (the lines running from the nose to the mouth), and temples. Sculptra was approved by the U.S. FDA in 2004 for use in AIDS-related facial wasting, and it received approval for cosmetic use in 2009.
Together with Botox injections and certain types of dermal fillers, Sculptra is one of the most popular treatments used by doctors to reduce signs of facial aging, such as deep wrinkles and hollowed cheeks, without surgery. Sculptra is unique among these treatments because it provides a gradual improvement over time rather than an immediate change after injection. It’s also the only injectable filler that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin — an important protein that provides elasticity and structure. Collagen production decreases as we age, causing our skin to become less firm and more prone to wrinkles.
Sculptra is an injectable product containing poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that has been used for decades in dissolvable stitches. It stimulates collagen production to restore facial volume and works gradually over time.
Many patients have reported very positive outcomes with this product. However, it is not for everyone, and there are some potential risks, limitations and costs to consider as well.
How Much Sculptra is Needed for Buttocks?
Sculptra butt lift uses the same injectable material, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), that’s used for facial fillers and injections. The procedure is performed in-office by an experienced cosmetic surgeon, aesthetician or nurse. The filler is injected into the buttocks to create a more shapely appearance.
The procedure does not require any downtime and patients can return to their normal activities immediately afterwards, though it may take up to six months to see the full result of the treatment.
How much Sculptra is needed for buttocks?
Sculptra buttocks usually cost around $1,600 per vial and are recommended at a rate of one vial per cheek. A typical Sculptra butt lift treatment consists of two vials, which means you’ll need to pay somewhere between $3,200 and $4,000 to undergo this procedure.
The cost of Sculptra Butt Lift depends upon the number of vials used. The average number of vials required is between 2-5. More vials are sometimes needed to achieve the desired outcome. On average, a typical Sculptra Butt Lift costs around $6000. This can vary depending on your geographic location and the surgeon’s pricing.
Sculptra is intended to stimulate your own collagen production. The results of Sculptra are gradual and natural appearing.
It will take about 2 weeks from the time you have your injections until you see your response to the treatment. After that, it will be 2-3 weeks before you see further improvement. It takes about 8 weeks to see the full effect of Sculptra injections.
Because of the cumulative nature of Sculptra, and due to the fact that the results are gradual and natural appearing, I generally recommend that patients start with a small amount of Sculptra for their initial treatment (4 vials). The amount used for your follow up treatments can then be adjusted depending on the results.
How Long Before you See Results From Sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid filler, is one of the most powerful injectables for stimulating collagen production and treating signs of facial aging. After receiving treatment with Sculptra, your body will gradually produce more collagen, filling in lines and wrinkles and restoring younger contours to your face. Many people wonder how long before results from Sculptra become visible.
The answer to that question depends on several factors. In some cases, you may see results after just one session, while others may need multiple sessions before they notice an improvement. The number of injections that you receive will also affect when you see results from Sculptra.
The amount of time it takes to see results from Sculptra depends on the individual patient, but you can expect to see full results from Sculptra within six months to one year after your first treatment.
Sculptra is an injectable filler that uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen helps skin cells maintain their structure, which results in more youthful looking skin.
The collagen production from Sculptra is a gradual process, so it can take up to two months before you notice any change in your appearance. After two months, you should begin to see improvement in the loss of facial volume and wrinkles. At this point, many patients choose to schedule additional treatments with Sculptra to achieve optimal results.
Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that works gradually, with results usually seen at about two weeks and continuing for up to six months.
Sculptra takes about two to three weeks to begin working, but the full effect can take several months. The time frame is dependent on the amount of Sculptra used and the individual’s own metabolism. It is also dependent on how much collagen has been lost. In some cases, Sculptra treatments can last up to two years.
Some people report seeing results after just one treatment, but most patients need three to five treatments spaced apart by four to six weeks. (The average number of injections per vial of Sculptra is three.) After the initial treatment series, additional sessions may be needed once or twice a year.
Sculptra is a unique injectable filler in that it works gradually to stimulate collagen production. The effects accumulate over time, and studies show that it’s still working up to two years after the initial treatment.
While Sculptra doesn’t work overnight, you’ll notice some results within a few weeks. You’ll see more improvement as the days go by, and the final result is expected to be seen about three months after treatment.
Sculptra® is a facial filler used to treat deep lines and wrinkles that appear due to the natural aging process. It can also be used to correct the appearance of facial volume loss which is often caused by HIV-related disease. Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that has been safely used in dissolvable sutures for decades.
Over time, you will notice an increase in volume and fullness in the areas of your face that have lost subcutaneous fat as you age, such as the cheeks, temples and chin. This gives the face a fuller and more youthful appearance. One of the best things about Sculptra is that it takes several months to see results, so you will begin to see gradual improvement over time.
Results from Sculptra are not permanent; however, they can last up to two years with proper re-treatment.
Sculptra results develop gradually over time. After the first treatment, patients typically see a valid result in approximately one month. Thereafter, Sculptra can last for up to two years.
It can take about 3-4 weeks for the collagen to grow and fill in the skin. You may see some immediate improvement but it will look better after a few weeks.
The most popular areas for Sculptra are the temples, cheeks, jawline, neck and under eye.
