Sculptra is an effective treatment option for patients looking to achieve a youthful, voluminous appearance. It’s an FDA-approved injectable that replaces collagen and supports the skin’s cells and tissue to restore volume. It also helps stimulate collagen production by utilizing Sculptra poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) microparticles, which the body absorbs. With the production of collagen strands, facial volume is restored, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
Even with knowledge of what Sculptra is and how it works, you may be wondering how long it lasts or when you will see results. This guide will answer your most frequently asked questions about treatment with Sculptra.
What Areas Can Benefit From Sculptra?
Sculptra can be used on multiple regions of the face to restore balance and volume, enhancing facial features and providing a youthful appearance. This includes:
- Chin and jawline
- Depressions in the temples
- Hollowness around the cheeks and cheekbones
- Areas around the nose and mouth
When Will You See the Results From Sculptra?
Sculptra starts working right away; however, since it will stimulate collagen production, it may take up to six weeks to see the full results of your treatment.
You may also need more than one treatment, depending on your goals. If you want to improve your skin’s appearance and tone, one to two treatments should be enough. If your goal is to address fine lines, three sessions may be needed. Each session will be spaced a few weeks apart.
When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Tarbet, she will be able to listen to your goals and decide on an appropriate treatment plan for you.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Most patients report their Sculptra results lasting approximately two years. You may want to schedule annual appointments every couple of years to maintain your results.
