What is Sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable containing Poly-L-lactic Acid, or PLLA, which gradually replaces lost collagen. When PLLA particles are injected into the deep dermis, they effectively:
- Revitalize the skin’s inner structure
- Stimulate the body’s own collagen production
- Diminish facial wrinkles
- Enhance volume and youthfulness
Sculptra is an entirely unique product that is differ ent than other dermal fillers because it helps your body stimulate its OWN collagen. With fillers, the amount of product and where it is injected is exactly what you get. Sculptra, on the other hand, slowly builds up your body’s natural collagen.
For patients who are concerned about looking “over-filled or over-done” but want the beautiful results of injectables gradually, and as natural-looking as possible, Sculptra is the best solution.
Sculptra results can last for over two years.
In a recent study, 80% of users were still satisfied with treatment results 25 months after their last injection. Ideally, patients should return for maintenance treatments every 6-12 months after initial sessions to continually improve collagen production within the skin.
Sculptra works with your body to produce results.
Sculptra reaches into the deep dermis layer to restore your skin’s inner structure and boost natural collagen production.
Sculptra is made with biocompatible materials.
Sculptra Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable materials which are gradually and naturally absorbed by the body.
The Benefits of Sculptra
Sculptra improves many facial areas.
By initiating natural collagen production, Sculptra rebuilds the underlying structures of the face for overall improvement. Other injectables target only the areas where they are injected.
You’ll achieve incredible, natural-looking results.
If you are concerned about looking frozen or overdone, Sculptra may be the best choice for you. The injections are performed in different directions to promote natural collagen production throughout the face. Patients love looking younger and smoother without looking like they’ve “had work done.”
The treatment schedule is low-maintenance.
At first, patients need an average of three Sculptra injection appointments over the course of three months. The exact number of will vary based on individual needs. Once you complete those initial treatments, one treatment every two years is often all it takes to boost collagen production and maintain your results.
Why Choose Be CLINICAL for Sculptra
Our Sculptra treatments are performed by highly trained, advanced medical professionals. Many patients are concerned about being treated with Sculptra because there have been reported cases of small to large lumps under the skin after the treatment. However, we have never seen this at Be CLINICAL due to an advanced hyperdiluting technique we use leading up to the treatment. In the weeks leading up to our Sculptra treatments we hyper dilute and continually mix the product to ensure that it will be very diffusely spread out when injected. Our Sculptra injectors are highly trained in injection techniques using cannulas for improved aesthetic outcome and reduced chances of side effects such as bruising. You can trust our team of medical experts to provide the utmost best and safe care during your Sculptra treatment.
What Areas Can be Treated with Sculptra?
Our San Ramon & San Francisco Bay Area Sculptra treatments can treat a variety of areas of concern, including both face and body, allowing us to rebuild and reactivate your body’s natural collagen and improve volume without the need for invasive surgery or a long recovery.
Temples and Cheeks
Sculptra is administered to the temple and upper cheek area to achieve the “martini glass look,” or a face that is wide at the top and grows narrow going down towards the chin.
Sculptra can be administered to the lower cheeks to help fill in hallowing from weight loss and more. The beauty of Sculptra is that it can be placed in many areas for an overall, natural look.
Jawline and Chin
Sculptra can be used to reduce the appearance of the wrinkle formed below the lip on the chin and replacing lost volume above the jawline.
Smile and Frown Lines
Sculptra can soften smile lines (nasolabial folds) and frown lines (Marionette Lines) around the sides of the mouth.
Chest / Décolleté
Sculptra can be used to treat wrinkled / lax skin on your chest and decolletage to smooth and tighten.
Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift
It’s natural to lose plumpness and perkiness in the butt with aging. Sculptra is a non-surgical option that can add roundness and fullness to the butt and significantly improve the appearance of cellulite.
What is the Sculptra Treatment Experience Like?
Your Sculptra treatment at our San Ramon & San Francisco Bay Area medical spa clinic will begin with a consultation in which you and your Be CLINICAL Provider will determine your aesthetic goals. The treatment itself is a minimally invasive procedure. Our highly trained Injectors will use advanced cannula techniques to distribute the Sculptra product for the most aesthetically pleasing outcome. Treatment typically takes thirty minutes or less. For the next five days we will ask you to massage your face a number of times each day as any incurred swelling subsides. This is an additional measure taken to ensure a perfect outcome. Numbing cream is available for all injectable procedures.
What to Expect Post Treatment?
With any dermal filler procedure, there is a chance of bruising and swelling but this is minimized at Be CLINICAL as we use cannulas for our Sculptra injections. Because Sculptra works with your body’s natural collagen, you will see results gradually over time. About 4-6 weeks after your first series of treatments, you will begin to see beautiful results. The results will continue developing for about three months and last for one to two years in most cases.
How is Sculptra Priced?
Sculptra at Be CLINICAL is charged per vial. Every patient is different, but when it comes to Sculptra for the face, neck, or chest a general rule of thumb is that you’ll need 1 vial of Sculptra for every decade you’ve been alive. This is usually administered gradually over a series of months. Non-surgical Brazillian butt lifts require 3-5 Sculptra sessions with 6-10 vials (3-5 vials per buttock) utilized per treatment. During a consultation, your Provider will have a better idea of how many vials of Sculptra will be needed to achieve the desired results.
What Are The Most Common Side Effects?
This filler earned FDA-approval in 2009 and has been used successfully for over 10 years. It is non-surgical and non-invasive. Because Sculptra is a synthetic material, it is also hypoallergenic. It can even be combined safely with other treatments if desired. The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, and itching. Rarely, nodules have been reported after Sculptra. These are usually palpable but not visible. At Be CLINICAL, our hyperdilution methods ensure the chances of such side effects are minimal.
