Sculptra, also known as the liquid face lift, has been clinically proven to be an effective, well-tolerated, and long-lasting treatment for the signs of facial lipoatrophy (facial fat loss) that results from aging. By stimulating your body to produce new collagen, Sculptra rejuvenates and volumizes the skins’ wrinkles and folds over time, resulting in a youthful contour and natural-looking lift.
How Sculptra Works
Sculptra is composed of a biodegradable, biocompatible, synthetic poly-L-lactic acid which stimulates your body’s natural collagen production and strengthens your skin’s inner structure and volume.
Injected just below the surface of the skin in an area of fat loss (i.e. cheeks, chin, temple, jaw line), Sculptra provides a gradual increase in skin thickness in the treated area with visible results appearing within a few treatments.
What are the side effects of Sculptra?
The most commonly reported side effects of Sculptra include redness, swelling, tenderness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching, and lumps around the injection site.
How many treatments will I need?
The amount of Sculptra treatments will differ for each person depending on the amount of collagen lost, typically ranging between 2-3 treatments over the course of a few months. Treatment results last for up to 2 years after the first treatment session. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect.
