What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable treatment that stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a protein that maintains the structure and elasticity of your skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in skin that appears thinner, less plump, and more prone to wrinkles. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic substance that replaces lost collagen and plumps up the skin. Over time, as Sculptra is absorbed by the body, it encourages new collagen growth, resulting in a fuller, more youthful appearance.

Sculptra FAQs

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible, biodegradable substance that stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. PLLA microparticles are injected into the skin, stimulating the formation of new collagen fibers. As the PLLA particles break down over time, they are absorbed by the body and replaced with newly-formed collagen. This gradual process leads to a natural-looking, long-lasting improvement in skin texture, volume, and elasticity. Sculptra reverses the signs of aging and creates a more youthful appearance.

What happens during the Sculptra session?

During Sculptra in Santa Rosa, our healthcare provider will inject the solution into the targeted areas using a fine needle. The number of injections and the amount of Sculptra used will depend on your treatment plan. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes, and patients can return to their daily activities immediately.

What are the side effects of Sculptra?

Common side effects of Sculptra include swelling, redness, tenderness, and bruising at the injection site. These effects are usually mild and resolve on their own within a few days.

What is the recovery like after Sculptra?

There is little to no downtime after a Sculptra treatment. Patients may experience mild swelling or bruising but can return to normal activities immediately after the session.

When will I see the results of Sculptra?

Sculptra results are not immediate, as the treatment stimulates the body’s own collagen production. Most patients see gradual improvement over several weeks to months, with results lasting up to 2 years or more.

How many Sculptra sessions do I need for optimal results?

The number of Sculptra in Santa Rosa sessions needed depends on your treatment plan and desired results. However, most patients receive 2-3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal improvement in volume and texture.
