Sculptra Facial Filler: How It Works as a Skin Rejuvenation and Anti-Aging Treatment

Among the filler injectables available today, Sculptra is one of the popularly requested treatments that uniquely addresses the root of most facial problems: loss of collagen.  

So how does Sculptra filler work as facial rejuvenation and wrinkle treatment? Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler that fills in hollow areas of the face to smooth deep facial wrinkles and adds facial volume to refresh your appearance. It is also known as a collagen stimulator that rebuilds your skin structure by replenishing the body’s lost collagen. This results in a restored fullness and firmness to your skin texture, with fewer visible deep folds and wrinkles.

Get Youthful, Supple Skin From Within With Sculptra

Imagine you, but without the wrinkles and fine lines that have slowly grown over the years. Our master injectors at Evolve Med Spa can provide world-class Sculptra treatments for you today.

The Magic of Sculptra Filler Treatment 

Sculptra is an injectable filler that gives natural-looking results for facial rejuvenation. It’s a unique filler injection because it is made of poly L lactic acid, a biosynthetic polymer substance that has been used for decades in medical equipment like dissolvable stitches.

When the Sculptra filler is fully absorbed in the treatment areas, the PLLA microparticles in the filler gel material are said to induce new collagen production. Collagen is one of the important structural proteins that give the skin its elastic and firm texture. 

Naturally, the wrinkles and lines in the skin get more pronounced due to the decrease in collagen as we age but Sculptra can replenish collagen to restore your skin health to peak condition. 

What Facial Areas Can Sculptra Treat? 

With its special filler composition, Sculptra can improve your skin’s structural support, making your skin healthier and stronger and reducing severe facial folds, wrinkles, and fine lines. The FDA has approved Sculptra for a variety of aging skin issues such as hollow temples, smile lines, marionette lines, nasolabial fold, and chin wrinkles.

Sculptra is a great filler treatment option for any client who wants to refine their facial shape and contour. It’s a popular choice for cheek augmentation, providing a subtle and natural volumizing effect to sunken cheeks. 

The filler is also used to correct sagging jowls and restore a more defined outline to your jawline. Its collagen stimulating effect can also improve skin with obvious acne scars and marks. 

Experienced providers can also safely administer a Sculptra injection to the other body parts that need enhancement. Nowadays, Sculptra Butt Lift is one of the widely popular alternatives to plastic surgery for butt augmentation. This simply involves placing the filler injection in the areas on the buttock to help achieve a perkier shape and fuller volume.

What To Expect During and After A Procedure for Sculptra Filler

To know whether a Sculptra treatment is what you need for your facial concerns, you must first consult with your provider who will assess your medical history and skin condition. Each client has unique needs and cosmetic goals, and it’s essential to use the right type of filler to achieve the best results.

During a Sculptra treatment session, your provider will first clean the treatment area. They may apply a topical numbing cream to minimize the discomfort from the injections but most fillers, like Sculptra, are already mixed with lidocaine.

After cleansing the skin, the Sculptra filler will be carefully injected beneath the skin using a needle or cannula. The treated area may be massaged to let the filler substance settle and distribute evenly before proceeding with another injection. Depending on the area to be treated and the severity of your skin issues, your provider may recommend getting more than one Sculptra vial in a session.

Like most injectable treatments, Sculptra doesn’t require a long downtime after the procedure. You may experience common side effects such as pain at the injection site, swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness. These typically don’t last for long and will resolve on their own within a few days.  

You can see initial improvements in your look after your first Sculptra session. However, the true effects of Sculptra are not visible until after several weeks from the treatment since the process of new collagen stimulation is gradual. 

As the body metabolizes the filler, the particles of the poly-L-lactic acid trigger natural collagen production, and the Sculptra results will continue to improve for a long time. Most Sculptra effects can last up to two years.

Sculptra Filler VS Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Another popular type of facial filler is hyaluronic acid fillers. Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is essential to maintaining good skin. It’s a naturally occurring substance in the body that keeps the skin hydrated and moisturized.

The popular HA filler products in the market are Juvéderm and Restylane. Similar to Sculptra, they work by filling in the areas affected by lost facial volume. These fillers can also correct moderate to deep facial wrinkles and facial folds and enhance contours. They are also used for lip augmentation to plump thinning lips.

The results for hyaluronic acid filler injections are visible almost immediately after the procedure. You can feel instant plumping of the areas that were treated but HA fillers may break down faster in the body and can only maintain its effects for up to 18 months.  

Sculptra’s advantage over hyaluronic acid-based fillers is that it continues to provide improvements to your skin because of its deep collagen stimulating effects. It lets you enjoy a more supple, smoother, and wrinkle-free skin for a long time.

Is Sculptra The Right Filler For You?

Individuals of any skin type or tone can safely get a Sculptra filler treatment. Unlike other cosmetic treatments that may pose pigmentation issues, there’s less risk of skin discoloration when you get a filler injection.

But since it’s still a skin treatment, it’s a general reminder that people with a history of keloids or hypertrophic scarring may not be good candidates for Sculptra dermal filler. If you have any rashes, open wounds, infections, or active inflammations in the treatment site, you may be advised to wait until they heal before getting Sculptra.

Always be sure to get a consultation with your Sculptra provider first to know if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
