Enhance Your Look With Sculptra In Beverly Hills

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable product that effectively adds volume by encouraging your own collagen growth, resulting in a natural-looking, youthful appearance. This treatment can activate the natural power of your own ability to produce collagen, further reducing signs of aging in both men and women.

Sculptra contains microparticles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a safe sugar polymer, as its active ingredient. PLLA is a biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic polymer that helps restore or correct the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy).

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable used to restore facial areas that have lost their volume and elasticity due to aging. It is a long-lasting treatment that naturally builds crucial collagen structures and also makes the skin appear more youthful.

Sculptra presents an innovative approach to treating facial aging and volume loss. Deep injections into facial or body tissues activate dormant fibroblasts— cells in the connective tissue that produce collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans. Hyaluronic acid is a well-known glycosaminoglycan responsible for the hydration of cutaneous tissue.

Treatment with Sculptra improves laxity, increases thickness, and rehydrates the skin for results that gradually develop over six months and last a minimum of two years. Routine treatments every six months will continue to improve the skin's volume, structure, and elasticity for natural-looking long-lasting benefits.

Sculptra Benefits

Sculptra is a non-surgical, anti-aging treatment that reduces age-related changes like wrinkles, shallow to deep nasolabial folds, contour deficiencies, and sagging skin. It boosts and stimulates the natural production of collagen— the essential protein that provides strength and support to the skin.

What Results to Expect:

  • Reduced Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Reduced Appearance of Moderate to Deep Facial Folds
  • Improved Structure and Facial Volume
  • Smooth Skin Texture
  • Enhanced Skin Laxity
  • Stimulates Natural Collagen Production
  • Long-lasting Results
  • Natural-looking Results
  • Natural Skin Rejuvenation

How Long Will Results Last?

Sculptra is a stimulatory filler, as it works to build up collagen and elastin on a deeper level. The results are progressive and cannot be noticed immediately after treatment. Patients will begin to see results within 4-6 months of the initial treatment session. We recommend three sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. Patients can appreciate the continuous improvement in skin quality in the weeks and months following a final treatment.

How the Procedure Works

The procedure takes around 30-40 minutes to complete. Sculptra is injected into deeper layers of skin with a fine needle or cannula to stimulate collagen production.

Before & Preparation

  • To minimize bruising, avoid taking the following medications at least seven days before injections: anti-inflammatory medications (Aspirin, Advil, Ibuprofen, etc), Omega-3 supplements (fish oil, flaxseed oil, etc), Vit E, and blood thinner medications.
  • Keep the face clean to avoid breakouts before the procedure.
  • Your provider may recommend an antibiotic before treatment if you have a history of cold sores.

During the Procedure

  • Sculptra is a virtually painless, minimally invasive injection procedure.
  • Your provider will map and cleanse the treatment area.
  • Before use, Sculptra is reconstituted by adding sterile water for injection (SWFI) and USP to form a sterile, non-pyrogenic suspension. A local anesthetic is also mixed with the injection to minimize discomfort.
  • Your provider will inject the filler into the deeper layers of skin.
  •  Your provider will periodically massage the treatment area to ensure even distribution and reduce the risk of lump or nodule formation.
  • Patients can return to their work and perform their daily routine activities immediately.

Aftercare & Recovery

  • Any evidence of inflammation and erythema around the treated areas will resolve within 1-2 days.
  • Patients may use an ice pack to reduce discomfort. Place a protective covering over the ice pack to avoid direct contact with the treated area.
  • Thoroughly massage the treatment area for 5 minutes, five times a day for five days after the injection session (Rule of 5), to ensure even product distribution.
  • Avoid excessive sun and heat.
  • Selecting a proper sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or more is essential. Frequent sunscreen application is necessary; that is 20 minutes before going out and reapply every 2 hours.
  • If you cannot avoid direct sun exposure, utilize physical prevention such as a hat or clothing to cover the treated area.
  • Avoid alcohol and vigorous exercise for two days post-treatment.

  • Swelling: It may also appear as small bumps either near or away from the injection site. It can last up to a week after treatment. Elevating the head with pillows and applying a cold compress can help subside the swelling.
  • Discoloration of Skin (Rare): Very few patients experience discoloration following injections, but it subsides within a few days.
  • Nodules: Patients may experience nodule formation on or near the injection site. Early nodules may be due to uneven product distribution; Periodic massaging can solve the issue.
