Why Sculptra?

Why Sculptra®?

Sculptra® activates the skin’s ability to produce collagen, restoring the skin’s structure and renewing its natural firmness.4 Collagen is a fibrous protein in the deeper layers of your skin and is key in making your skin look young and healthy. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases. The loss of collagen will in time lead to loose and saggy skin and the formation of facial wrinkles and folds.5

Sculptra® is the original collagen stimulator that will renew your skin in a gradual and long-lasting way by stimulating collagen production.6 Sculptra® gives you control of your skin and the power to look as great as you feel.

Your Sculptra® treatment

Sculptra® is injected in the deep layers of your skin to stimulate its own collagen production.10 You will gradually notice visible improvements of skin firmness and fullness, and results can last for more than two years.11 On average, three treatment sessions are needed over a few months. 

Immediately after each treatment session, you may experience some swelling that will temporarily reduce wrinkles and folds. Thereafter, the gradual process of collagen replacement starts. Sculptra® works subtly, improving facial areas gradually to give you a youthful and natural-looking result that lasts.

How it works

How it works

How it works

The active ingredient in Sculptra® is poly-L-Lactic acid, PLLA. PLLA is a biodegradable substance that has been used for decades in dissolvable stitches for wound management. When PLLA is injected in the deeper layers of your skin, it helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production.12 Thereby, your skin’s inner structure is improved and you will regain skin volume that has been lost to aging.13

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Before your first treatment you will always have a consultation. Think through what you want to achieve and any questions that you want to ask your healthcare practitioner. You will be informed about how Sculptra works and how it can be used in a safe way to improve your skin’s firmness by stimulating your body’s own collagen production.

Your healthcare practitioner will also ask you about your medical history. After the consultation you should feel well informed about Sculptra and know what results to expect.

Make sure that the clinic has a qualified practitioner(s) so that your treatment will be performed correctly. You could always search in national registers of licensed aesthetic treatment specialists. Your treatment should be performed in a medical environment that provides privacy and is spotlessly clean. You can always request to see training certificates and insurance certificates to ensure that your healthcare practitioner has received the appropriate training and is insured for the treatment.

Specialists who have been trained to inject Sculptra for natural collagen stimulation, and are licensed to practice within your country or state, may administer the treatment. This can include physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other trained personnel.

Your healthcare practitioner should provide you with comprehensive information about how Sculptra can stimulate the formation of collagen in a natural way and give you a detailed explanation regarding your treatment.

This is what you should expect:
•    Information about the possibilities and limitations of the treatment
•    Information about possible side effects and precautions for treatment
•    Information about the cost of the treatment and follow-up treatments
•    That your questions are answered to your full satisfaction

Sculptra is injected to correct shallow to deep wrinkles and folds, by stimulating the skin’s own collagen production. Administered with the appropriate injection technique from a trained specialist, Sculptra is clinically approved for:
•    Deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), also called “smile lines”
•    Lines framing the mouth (marionette lines)
•    Chin wrinkles

Please note that indications vary between countries. Please consult your healthcare practitioner for more information. 

On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and your healthcare practitioner.
