NOTE: Sculptra can also be used elsewhere on the body, to smooth out dimpling caused by cellulite or to add volume to flat buttocks. Ask your specialist if you’re a good candidate for these treatments.
Sculptra is made with a biodegradable material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally absorbed by the body and stimulates it to produce collagen: the framework for fuller skin. To give this product time to do its work, our Facial Innovations specialist will administer treatment gradually: typically three injections over the course of 3-4 months.
You won’t see immediate results with Sculptra, as it takes 45-90 days after treatment before more volume is evident. But the effects will last up to two years. (Depending on your treatment goals, we may suggest combining Sculptra with quick-acting dermal fillers to achieve optimal results.)
It’s advisable not to exercise for a few days, and you may feel fullness in the area of the injection even though it won’t be visible to others. You can also expect to see a little swelling or bruising. Don’t worry; the latter can be covered with makeup.
