About Sculptra®

Sculptra® is an injectable cosmetic treatment primarily utilized to restore facial volume and smooth out fine lines, folds and wrinkles, rejuvenating the skin’s appearance. It employs poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic material, to stimulate natural collagen production. At RAAC, Sculptra injections are administered only by medical professionals who inject into the appropriate dermal layer where collagen supports the skin’s structure, delivering a more youthful appearance which can last up to two years.

Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic treatment primarily used to restore facial volume and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It utilizes poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic material, to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, providing a more youthful appearance over time.

Sculptra and dermal fillers serve the common purpose of addressing lost volume, fine lines, folds, and wrinkles on the skin, albeit through different mechanisms. Sculptra is a biostimulatory injectable composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) with a liquid consistency. Upon injection beneath the skin, Sculptra integrates into the tissues and triggers your body’s natural collagen production process.

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are primarily composed of Hyaluronic acid and maintain a gel-like consistency. Unlike Sculptra, dermal fillers do not stimulate collagen production but are designed to temporarily replace the lost volume directly. The outcomes of dermal fillers are visible immediately post-treatment, whereas Sculptra’s effects unfold gradually as the body takes time to generate collagen.

The aging process, coupled with environmental stressors and genetic factors, leads to a gradual loss of collagen at a rate of about 1% annually post the age of 20. This collagen depletion results in skin thinning, thereby forming wrinkles and folds. Collagen, a fibrous protein situated in the deep dermal layer, provides structural support to our skin, helping maintain its shape, moisture, and elasticity. A robust collagen supply is crucial for retaining smooth skin and a youthful appearance, which both Sculptra and dermal fillers aim to achieve, albeit in different ways.

Common side effects of Sculptra may include injection site reactions such as redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising.

The main benefits of Sculptra include its ability to stimulate natural collagen production, restore facial volume, smooth out fine lines and deep wrinkles, provide a natural and youthful appearance, and offer long-lasting results up to two years.

The number of Sculptra sessions required can vary based on individual needs and desired outcomes. Typically, a treatment plan may consist of three sessions over a few months, but it’s best to consult with a professional consultant at RAAC to determine the appropriate treatment plan for you.

Results from Sculptra are gradual, as it works by stimulating natural collagen production. Some improvement may be noticed within the first few weeks, with more significant results typically apparent after a few months.

Sculptra treatment is minimally invasive with little to no downtime. Most individuals can return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure. However, it’s advisable to avoid vigorous physical activity for a few days post-treatment.

It’s generally recommended to wait at least a few hours post-treatment before applying makeup to the treated area. It’s crucial to follow the post-care instructions provided to ensure the best possible results and avoid any potential complications.
