Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used primarily for facial rejuvenation and enhancement. Unlike traditional dermal fillers that mainly add volume to specific areas, Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic material that stimulates your body's natural collagen production.
This unique characteristic sets Sculptra apart as it focuses on gradually restoring your facial volume and improving your skin quality over time.
At Colorado Skin Care, the team uses Sculptra to help patients address several concerns, including:
Aging often decreases collagen production, resulting in lost facial volume, hollowing of cheeks and temples, and overall facial sagging.
Sculptra targets deeper lines, wrinkles, and folds, particularly nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines, by stimulating collagen growth and improving skin texture.
Sculptra can help define and contour facial features, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Before your treatment, you’ll sit down with your practitioner to discuss your aesthetic goals and any concerns you might have.
Sculptra works by stimulating your body's natural collagen production. When injected into targeted areas, it acts as a bio-stimulator, triggering the production of new collagen over time.
The gradual nature of collagen synthesis means that results with Sculptra aren’t immediate. Instead, they develop gradually as your body produces more collagen. The treatment involves a series of injections performed over a few sessions, typically spaced several weeks apart.
Results from Sculptra are long-lasting compared to traditional dermal fillers. While individual experiences may vary, the effects of Sculptra can last up to two years or more in some cases. However, periodic touch-up treatments may be recommended to maintain optimal results.
While it may take a few weeks for the full effects to become noticeable, be mindful of the fact that collagen stimulation continues — even after the initial series of injections, contributing to the longevity of results.
