Sculptra filler treatment

Sculptra is a different kind of dermal filler than hyaluronic acid fillers. Sculptra causes the body itself to produce new collagen. Your skin will improve over time and will become fuller, firmer and more elastic. The result is a younger and fresher appearance.

What does Sculptra do?

Sculptra puts your body to work and stimulates it to produce new collagen. This will make your skin firmer, fuller and more elastic, and will create a more youthful look. The initial Sculptra treatment usually consists of 3 sessions with a waiting period of at least 5 weeks in between each session.

Why do we use Sculptra?

  • To restore jawline and chin contours.

  • To improve skin volume.

  • To restore and accentuate cheekbone definition.

  • To treat the nasolabial folds and sunken cheeks.

  • To treat marionette lines.

  • To rejuvenate the facial shape.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra consists of poly-L-lactic acid and hydrogel and is 100% biodegradable. The lactic acid molecules are derived from fruits and beets and are 100% pure. The material is completely safe and has been used for over 25 years in surgery, dentistry and the food industry. Production takes place according to strict international regulations. Research by the European Pharmaceutical Commission has shown that poly-L-lactic acids are highly suitable to treat emerging wrinkles and lines in the skin. Sculptra has been approved by the FDA in the USA. Over time, Sculptra is entirely absorbed by the body and eventually disappears from the body completely.

The treatment with Sculptra

During a Sculptra treatment, a suitable anesthetic will always be administered to prevent you from feeling pain. The Sculptra solution will be injected at the right depth by using a cannula or a very thin injection needle. After the treatment, a cream will be applied to your skin. Some mild swelling during the first hours after the treatment is normal. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.

The results of Sculptra

The volume-restoring effect of Sculptra is visible immediately after the treatment. After the first week, this effect will disappear slightly, as the poly-L-lactic acid spreads through the skin. Afterwards, the new collagen will start to form. It will take a couple of weeks before the final result becomes visible. The result you’ll see immediately after the treatment is what you can expect as the final result once the product has run its course.

How long do the effects of  Sculptra last?

The effects of Sculptra treatments are long-lasting and can easily keep for two to three years. In the meantime, the aging process naturally still continues, so you might want to come in for a touch-up treatment after a year or two. Sculptra will have been completely replaced by your body’s own collagen after two years.

Q&A

Frequently asked questions

What exactly is Sculptra

Sculptra is a biodegradable poly-L-lactic acid. This lactic acid stimulates the growth of collagen in the body, which will make the skin fuller and firmer.

Will I see results immediately after a Sculptra treatment?

You will see the effects of the treatment immediately afterwards, but this result will temporarily disappear after a few days. At that point, the skin will start to produce new collagen itself. The final result will become visible after a few weeks and have a long-lasting effect.

How many treatments do I need?

This depends on the indication and your desired appearance. In consultation with your cosmetic doctor, a personalized treatment plan will be drawn up. Usually 3 or 4 treatments are needed for optimal results, after which it is recommended that you undergo yearly touch-up treatments.

Is a Sculptra treatment painful?

The treatment might be slightly painful at times. However, since you’re always administered an anesthetic beforehand, you will experience the least amount of discomfort possible.
