Sculptra is a one-of-a-kind cosmetic injectable that boosts collagen production deep within your skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that gives your skin structure and keeps it firm, but your skin doesn’t produce as much collagen in your later years as it does when you’re young.
Sculptra is similar to dermal fillers but contains an essential ingredient called poly-L-lactic acid. It’s biocompatible and won’t cause an adverse reaction in your skin as it stimulates the production of collagen fibers.
With personalized Sculptra injections, you can enjoy a more youthful appearance with plump skin and minimized wrinkles. The results appear gradually over time as collagen increases, which makes them look distinctively natural compared to the effects of conventional dermal fillers.
Sculptra makes gradual structural repairs in your skin and tissues. Most people use the injectable to target various areas of their faces that show evidence of aging and volume loss. Your personalized Sculptra treatment can:
The results of Sculptra last for at least two years since the resulting collagen growth is all your own. Unlike dermal fillers, Sculptra doesn’t introduce any plumping agents like hyaluronic acid that dissolve over time. If you’re satisfied with the results, you can continue treatment later, either with Sculptra again or using conventional dermal fillers.
Side effects from Sculptra are typically minimal and include light redness, swelling, and bruising. Any side effects you experience disappear within several days. To minimize side effects, you shouldn’t use Sculptra in sensitive areas like your lips or around your eyes.
Your specialist at Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek evaluates your medical history before starting treatment to ensure you’re in excellent health and will tolerate the treatment well. If you have any active skin infections, they encourage you to reschedule the treatment when the infection has cleared.
