What's Sculptra? Here's Everything You Need to Know

Have you heard about Sculptra, an injectable that activates your skin's ability to produce collagen?

We love using it to reverse volume loss and minimize wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful appearance.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that helps restore the structure of the skin, diminishing facial wrinkles and restoring your skin’s inner structure and volume, too. As Sculptra is absorbed, it helps stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen type 1 deep in the dermis. Those rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually restoring facial volume and bringing fullness back to areas with wrinkles and folds.

What are the benefits of Sculptra?

Sculptra offers many benefits that result from increased collagen production, like the improved appearance of sagging skin, plumping of hollowing areas and a tighter, more youthful appearance overall.

Sculptra can be injected or needled into the skin. Injections will be more targeted to specific areas — think temples, cheeks or around the mouth — where microneedling will add an all-over, subtle rejuvenation to the skin. Another benefit to Sculptra treatments is that there is little to no downtime, too!

When can I expect to see results from Sculptra injections?

Unlike hyaluronic acid filler, where results are seen immediately, Sculptra can take 6-12 weeks to stimulate collagen, which will continue to produce for the next 6 months. At Skin Pharm, we like our patients to come back 6-8 weeks after their initial treatment, about 3 months after their second treatment and continue until the desired result is obtained.

And good news: collagen stimulated from Sculptra typically lasts for 2+ years. 

What about Sculptra maintenance?

The number of injection appointments (and the number of injections per appointment) varies from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. Maintenance injections are normally done every 9-12 months as desired after that.
