Over time, people lose their facial fat because of the natural lipoatrophy that comes along with the aging process. Lipoatrophy, the gradual loss of fatty tissue from the fat layer, can give an overall gaunt appearance to the cheeks. This can be a cause of embarrassment for a lot of people.

Sculptra is a safe and popular long-lasting injectable treatment that has been FDA approved for the correction of the effects of facial lipoatrophy. Due to its long-lasting outcomes, Sculptra is often preferred over other dermal fillers.

What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable collagen stimulator made of synthetic poly-L-lactic acid, a manufactured substance made to recreate a natural substance made by the muscles while working out. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used in modern surgery for years and in dissolvable sutures as well.

Since Sculptra is made of synthetic materials, there is no requirement for sensitivity testing before treatment.

What Is Sculptra Used For?

Sculptra helps restore the fullness and volume of your face. The product has earned the moniker of “liquid facelift” due to its ability to create a more youthful and energetic appearance.

Sculptra helps in restoring the shape of the eyes, lips, and any other regions of the face that are showing signs of aging. Another well-known use of Sculptra is to lessen the presence of wrinkles and facial lines that come from old age.

Who Can Undergo Sculptra?

Patients who wish to undergo Sculptra treatment should be in excellent overall health. Those with skin diseases or rashes may not be appropriate candidates to undergo Sculptra, as it might cause complications in these cases.

Your Consultation

Before undergoing any procedure, it is essential that patients make their plastic surgeon completely aware of any medical conditions or sensitivities they may have during a consultation.

Sculptra’s poly-L-lactic acid is naturally inactive and does not pose a danger of hypersensitive response or allergies for patients. Regardless, it is critical for patients to advise their specialists of any immunity deficiencies, skin diseases or rashes, or pharmaceuticals they are taking (including ibuprofen and mitigating medicines) that may influence the results of their Sculptra treatment.

No Recovery Time Needed

You can expect mild itching after the Sculptra injections have been administered. Slight redness is also an expected temporary side effect, and it should subside within hours. You can resume your normal everyday activities with hours of the treatment, as it is a non-surgical outpatient procedure. This stands in sharp contrast to surgical procedures, which can require patients to miss work during a period of extended downtime.

The results of your Sculptra injections can last for up to two years, providing a youthful, smooth, and full look for your face.
