How Long Does Sculptra Take To Work?

How Long Does Sculptra Take To Work

You might not like how your smile, marionette, and chin wrinkles look. These nasolabial folds and wrinkles are common signs of aging. They get worse as collagen breaks down, making your skin less elastic and firm. 

Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable treatment approved by the FDA to eliminate these lines and wrinkles. Today, The Better Body Shop MedSpa will help you understand how Sculptra works and whether it benefits you. Check out this article! 

The Thing About Sculptra

Sculptra is an effective injectable to refreshen your look. It uses a biocompatible substance called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to get the body to start making its collagen again. 

This means that, unlike other injectable treatments today, you can get natural results that last for years instead of months. So, how does it work?

The Function of Sculptra

PLLA is a substance that works well with the body and helps the body’s natural processes replace collagen. When Sculptra® is injected, the PLLA goes to work right away under the skin, but it will take time for the full effects to show. 

The body will take in the PLLA molecules, giving it the necessary nutrients to start making collagen again. Collagen makes the skin tight and smooth, so getting more of it will help smooth out the lines and wrinkles in the lower half of your face. It will be like the aging process has been put on rewind.

Why Consider It?

Sculptra® Aesthetic gives results that are real and last. It works by boosting the body’s collagen production instead of replacing what has been lost. 

This makes the results look very natural. This also makes treatment last longer, so you won’t have to keep making appointments for maintenance to look your best.

So, when you go to a doctor who knows how to prescribe Sculptra® Aesthetic, you can be sure that your treatment will be quick, easy, and safe. Your doctor will figure out how many injections and treatment sessions you need based on your skin. 

Each session will only take a few minutes. Deep in the dermis, injections are given, and a topical anesthetic may be used to make the process less painful.

Take note that because Sculptra makes your body make more collagen, this takes about six weeks.

Our Sculptra Treatment 

At The Better Body Shop MedSpa, we offer effective Sculptra treatments that you may try. Two offers may be a good start with this therapy.

Sculptra BBL

This injectable bio-stimulant promotes collagen formation in the buttocks over time for a starting price of $1600. In addition to increasing the volume and lift of the buttocks, Sculptra also corrects cellulite in the buttocks.

From one injection session to the next, results can be observed 4-6 weeks later. The outcomes of this treatment are at their peak after three to four injection sessions.

Sculptra Breast Lift

Sculptra breast lift is something you can use to enhance the attractiveness of cleavage, increase the breast’s roundness, and promote a natural lift.

Other Benefits To Expect

Like most treatments, Sculptra has many good advantages that you must reconsider. It may work about six weeks before you see the results, but there are more exciting things that can help your skin change along the way. Here’s what you may gain. 

Lasting For a Long Time

Because this filler rebuilds the face’s underlying structure by making collagen, its effects last much longer than most other injectables. Most people are happy with their results for at least two years. 

Even if you decide not to have the treatment again, the extra collagen made by the first fluid facelift will help you age better.

Little Keep-ups

This filler’s first set of treatments can be done in less than an hour and doesn’t require downtime. Many patients even schedule these appointments during their lunch break.

After the first set of injections, you won’t need to return for maintenance treatments or “top-offs” for two years. You won’t have to think about this filler again.

Got Allergies? No Problem

Many fillers on the market are made of hyaluronic acid, which keeps water in the skin and keeps it from drying out. Poly-L-Lactic Acid, in Sculptra, makes sutures that dissolve over time.

Because Poly-L-Lactic Acid is made in a lab, it does not cause allergic reactions and does not need to be tested for allergies. Once it has gotten collagen production is going, Poly-L-Lactic Acid leaves the body on its own.

Use in Your Buttocks

This injectable dermal filler is often used to make a face look better and reverse signs of aging. Did you know that it can also make the buttocks look better? It has a similar effect on the buttocks. This filler causes the body to make more collagen, which lifts and tightens the derriere over months.

How Many Sessions To Take?

Each patient differs, but most will need 3–4 treatment sessions. These visits are so short and easy that you could do them even during your lunch break.

What To Do After The Treatment?

After your appointment, you’ll be able to get right back to your routine, with just a few suggestions for the first few days after treatment. Most patients tend to massage the area where they got an injection for five minutes five times a day.

The Poly-L-Lactic acid is spread around even more with these self-massages. We also tell people to stay out of the sun and tanning beds for a few days after getting an injection.

Sculptra Possible Side Effects

Sculptra® usually doesn’t cause many side effects. Still, some people may experience temporary redness, swelling, tenderness, pain at the injection site, bruising, lumps, or itching in the treated area.

Am I a Candidate?

If you want to find out if this unique dermal filler is suitable for you, the first step is to make an appointment for a consultation at our office. 

During this session, we’ll discuss your cosmetic goals, examine your areas of concern, and review your health history to see if this treatment is a good choice for you. 

Alternatives For Sculptra

Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse are examples of “fillers” for soft tissue. Even though many of these give more “instant” fill, they don’t cause as much collagen to be made in the body. 

Depending on your facial structure, age, and goals, resurfacing lasers like our fractionated erbium or CO2 lasers are often used with injectables like Sculptra to tighten skin and smooth lines, giving you a more natural-looking, fully rejuvenated look. 

Skin that has lost volume can get it back, but it can still look “old.” Lasers can help make skin look more youthful and fresh.
