Sculptra Q&A

What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable similar to dermal fillers but with one particular difference. Rather than simply boosting volume with a thick gel such as hyaluronic acid (HA), Sculptra contains ingredients that stimulate the natural growth of collagen deep in your skin and tissues. 

Collagen is an important structural protein in your skin. It reinforces your skin’s natural build and structure instead of adding artificial shape. Unfortunately, you lose about 1% of your collagen per year after age 18.

Sculptra injections contain poly-L-lactic acid as their main ingredient. While your skin absorbs poly-L-lactic acid, the chemical promotes increased collagen production in targeted areas before it disappears. In turn, results from Sculptra last significantly longer than results from HA dermal fillers. 

What does Sculptra treat?

Sculptra can target various areas of your face or body to add structure and tissue strength. There are many goals that Sculptra can help you reach, either alone or as part of a comprehensive aesthetic treatment plan at Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles. 

You can use personalized Sculptra treatments to:

  • Boost volume in hollow cheeks
  • Boost volume in hollow temples
  • Define your jawline
  • Soften bony cheekbones
  • Reduce deep wrinkles
  • Increase structure in your hips and buttocks

Sculptra poses no risk of allergic reaction and is safer than invasive plastic surgeries that accomplish similar goals. After treatment, you’ll need to avoid strenuous activities for a few days and use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications to reduce soreness near the injection sites. 

How long do the results of Sculptra last?

You can enjoy long-lasting results from a single round of Sculptra injections, but your results won’t last forever. Eventually, the collagen your skin builds after Sculptra treatments break down, just like all of the natural collagen in your skin. 

Most people who get Sculptra enjoy visible results for two years or longer. This is more than double the duration of results from most dermal fillers. If you want to maintain your results for longer, you can come back to Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles for additional injections every few years.
