The loss of collagen, a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm and taut, is responsible for most signs of aging, including wrinkles and gaunt cheeks. Sculptra is a unique facial filler that stimulates collagen production, addressing the root cause of facial aging.
Stimulate Collagen & Restore Volume
Sculptra is an injectable filler that restores volume and stimulates collagen in the cheeks, temples, chin, and other facial tissues. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles, facial hollows, and creases. Unlike other facial fillers, Sculptra stimulates natural collagen production in the underlying layers of skin, so the results appear gradually. The Med Spa of New Smyrna Beach offers personalized Sculptra treatments to catalyze collagen production and reverse the effects of age on your face.
How Sculptra Works
Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic treatment that replenishes lost collagen, which is naturally depleted with age. Collagen is a vital protein that makes your skin look firm, hydrated, and smooth. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible substance that serves as a scaffolding when injected under your skin, leading to immediate fullness. Over time, the PLLA molecules are metabolized by the body, and they stimulate collagen production, leading to natural volume restoration.

What makes Sculptra unique?
Sculptra is a unique injectable treatment that uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) as its active ingredient rather than the more commonly-used hyaluronic acid. While most dermal fillers reduce lines and wrinkles by providing immediate but temporary volume, Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production in the area over time. This results in more natural, gradual, and lasting results.
What are the side effects of Sculptra?
Although Sculptra is extremely safe, there can be mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. Additionally, some people may experience itching, pain, or a lumpy appearance where the filler is injected. Most side effects are extremely mild and temporary and usually dissipate within a few days.
Is there any downtime after Sculptra?
No, there is no need to plan time off work or make any lifestyle adjustments after your Sculptra treatment. Generally, you can resume your usual activities and regular routine almost as soon as you leave the clinic. However, you should avoid strenuous physical workouts and direct sunlight for 24 hours.
When will I see the results of Sculptra?
Sculptra is an amazing injectable that helps to add volume to your face, creating a beautiful and natural-looking result. The great thing about Sculptra is that you will start seeing the treatment results immediately. However, the initial results are only temporary, and they’ll fade once the body metabolizes the PLLA molecules. The actual results appear gradually over several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers.
How many treatments do I need for optimal results?
Most patients need 3 to 4 treatments over a few months to achieve optimal results. As the treatments progress, you will see an increase in volume and a more youthful appearance. Sculptra results are cumulative, so each session will lead to elevated contours and a more youthful appearance.
How long do the Sculptra results last?
The amazing results of Sculptra injections can last up to two years. Sculptra stimulates the body’s collagen production, so the results are long-lasting and natural. You can also opt for maintenance treatments every couple of months to extend the results.
