How Long Does Sculptra® Last?

Sculptra® Aesthetic treatments are one of our preferred injections for filling in volume here at Physician Skin. This injectable comes with a twist in comparison to other dermal fillers. Most fillers are designed to fill areas of your body with a concentrated gel, giving them a fuller appearance immediately and reducing the signs of aging. Sculptra® differs in that it is a biostimulator, increasing collagen production over time to provide a scaffolding for facial volume that is much longer lasting than traditional hyaluronic acid fillers. This makes it a sought after treatment thanks to the dual effects and multiple benefits.

What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is a facial injectable that’s made from poly-L-lactic acid. This is different from most other injectables that are made from hyaluronic acid (HA). When Sculptra® is injected into an area of your body, the solution helps to replace lost collagen, while simultaneously giving the area an extra boost in volume. It stimulates collagen production, which slows with age. By improving collagen fiber density in the skin rather than using HA gel to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, Sculptra® builds your skin’s natural skin support structure. Sculptra® irons out lines and wrinkles, adding more volume to your skin over time. Your body produces more collagen in that area long after the treatment has been finished. Therefore, you will see fuller and tighter skin that doesn’t just look younger on the outside, it behaves younger on the inside.

How Long Will Sculptra® Last?

At Physician Skin, our Sculptra® treatments take around 20 minutes to carry out. Timing can vary based on the area being treated as well as your specific concern. While it takes more time to see improvement—with 2 vials injected every 6 weeks for a total of 3 sessions—the results with Sculptra® are much longer lasting than traditional HA fillers where the body breaks the gel down. Your facial volume will become noticeably younger looking after 2 sessions, and your results will be long-lasting, with many of our patients enjoying the benefits of Sculptra® for up to two years!

Benefits of Sculptra®

As mentioned above, Sculptra® yields very long-lasting results that can’t be matched by many other Injectables. Certainly, it lasts far longer than your typical HA filler injections. This is highly beneficial as it makes the treatment more cost-effective for patients. You can have a few sessions over a few months, then go two years before you need any top-ups!

Furthermore, Sculptra® will provide a lot of facial rejuvenation benefits. It leads to a natural reduction in wrinkles while adding some much-needed support to your face. This can enhance the way you look, giving you a youthful appearance and skin that doesn’t sag. 

Finally, you enjoy these benefits without needing any complex surgical procedures. It’s virtually painless, with numbing gel used so you barely feel the needle going in. After the treatment, you’re free to move around and slip straight back into your normal routine. There’s zero downtime, no painful side effects, and the treatments are very short!

Am I a Candidate for Sculptra®?

Sculptra® injections are suitable for most people with common cosmetic issues. If the skin around your face is loose or has fine lines and wrinkles, this could be a great treatment for you. It’s proven to reduce fine lines and plump up your skin, without the need for excessive downtime and appointment follow-ups. 

We don’t encourage you to undergo this treatment if you’re currently breastfeeding or pregnant. Likewise, it might not be suitable for people with specific allergies or skin conditions. Fear not, we discuss everything with you at your consultation.
