How long do the beneficial affects of Sculptra last?

Doctor Answers 4

Sculptra is long-lasting

Sculptra is a wonderful long-lasting product and the effects can last as much as two years. Patients come in on a monthly basis for 1-2 vials at a time, and it slowly builds up your own natural collagen.  For the best cosmetic results please find a board certified dermatologist with a lot of experience in injections.

Sculptra Results

In the clinical trial, when patients had 4 monthly treatments of 1-2 vials, patients still showed results 2 years later. The results probably last longer, as it is your own collagen that fills, but the long-term study data is not out yet.

How long to beneficial effects of Sculptra last?

It does normally take several treatment sessions to gradually obtain volume replacement from Sculptra, but once the optimal result is obtained, the result will normally last from 2-4 years.
