Sculptra was FDA approved for lipoatrophy (subcutaneous fat loss) of the face in 2004 and for cosmetic use in 2009. Sculptra combines the convenience of an injectable treatment with the benefits of collagen restoration. Dr. Serrão has been a certified injector since 2004 and was one of the first providers of this great product.
Sculptra delivers natural, long-lasting wrinkle reduction that rivals even the most reputable injectable treatments. To understand how the results from Sculptra are so resilient, you must first understand what makes its formula so unique.
What Makes Sculptra Different?
Sculptra is a distinct treatment because it is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates collagen production deep in the skin. Other treatments simply fill the skin with liquid or gel substances, which are broken down over the course of a few months. Sculptra acts as a volumizer and can be used globally in the face and along the jawline. The results are not immediate as compared to other more common facial fillers but develop over time as the collagen production is stimulated and lost volume is restored. Several treatment sessions are required that are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, but the results can last several years.
The True Duration of Sculptra Results
After your Sculptra treatment, you will notice a gradual improvement in the texture and appearance of the skin as collagen production is restored. After a few months, you should be able to notice the full results of treatment, enjoying a noticeable reduction in the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. Since the amount of collagen in the skin continues to grow over time, you will continue to receive cosmetic and skin health benefits for many months. Our Sculptra patients often enjoy results that last up to two years or longer.
