Do you love the results of dermal fillers but wish they could last longer? Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers last up to twelve months. With Sculptra®, you can see results lasting two years or more. This collagen-building filler provides long-lasting effects that outlast typical materials.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Unlike most dermal fillers, Sculptra® uses a material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). PLLA stimulates the cells to produce more collagen. This vital structural protein gives the skin natural support, firmness, and strength. As the new collagen fibers develop, Sculptra® improves skin laxity, smooths lines and wrinkles, and restores lost volume.
How Long Does Sculptra® Last?
The collagen that forms after your Sculptra® treatment lasts longer than the Sculptra® itself. This collagen and the support it provides lasts at least two years and often longer. This will vary depending on each person’s biology, so your Longwood Plastic Surgery team will help you establish a schedule of maintenance visits to keep collagen levels high and maintain your smoother, more youthful appearance.
What Can Sculptra® Treat?
Sculptra® is FDA-approved to treat a wide range of facial concerns. Since the loss of collagen affects your skin firmness and facial structure, replacing this lost collagen can have dramatic effects. Sculptra® can improve:
- Fine to deep lines and wrinkles
- Volume loss around the cheeks, eyes, or temples
- Thin-looking jawline
- Loss of volume on the backs of the hands
- Chin wrinkles
- Fine lines around the mouth
- Deep folds and creases
- Marionette lines and nasolabial folds
Sculptra® offers an effective non-surgical option for smoother, younger-looking skin. Your LPS team will determine whether Sculptra® can help you achieve your desired results.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
Pricing for dermal fillers will vary between locations and providers. At LPS, you can expect to pay about $1000 for a vial of Sculptra®. Depending on your treatment goals, you may need more or less than this amount. We recommend a consultation to develop a treatment plan that allows an accurate estimate.
What Results Will I See With Sculptra®?
Most people need three treatments a few weeks apart for maximum collagen production. Results can take six to twelve weeks to appear and will continue to develop for several months. You will notice lines and wrinkles become softer and less visible. Sunken areas of your face will create more volume and fullness.
Am I a Good Candidate For Sculptra®?
Most people make good candidates for Sculptra®. PLLA is a safe material similar to the ones used in medical sutures. Treatment requires no downtime, making Sculptra® an excellent choice for busy people who cannot take time off.
