Other Than Volume, What Are the Benefits of Facial Enhancement Using Sculptra?

Doctor Answers (7)

Sculptra creates volume and better skin tone/texture

+2

Sculptra is noted for:

  • the volume it stimulates with a very natural-appearing result.
  • But, Sculptra also enhances the tone and texture of the skin.
  • Once a desired result is achieved over a series of injection sessions, this is a product that gives a long-lasting natural result that can be maintained with periodic "booster" injections.

Results are dependent on several variables:

  • dilution
  • amount of Sculptra used
  • the precise placement of the Sculptra

Be sure to see a physician who is very experienced in injecting Sculptra. This is a product that should be a home run for every patient, but experience of the injector is crucial. Lack of results or side effects are directly related to the experience of the injector.

Sculptra Enhancement: Longer Lasting & Happy Patients

+1

Sculptra is an injectable filler medication that works to replace the collagen in deeper layers of the skin and subcutaneous tissues. By replacing the lost collagen caused  by aging it helps to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. This gradual process occurs over weeks and months that follow. My patients feel this is one of the best benefits - gradually adding volume with more natural improvement. Due to the collagen produced, the results are exceptionally longer lasting (up to 2 years +) as compared to other fillers on the market right now.

Sculptra and it's benefits

+1

Sculptra improves the appearance of the aging face by causing the patient's skin to make new collagen.  This not only adds volume to areas such as the temples, cheek hollows, under eye and perioral areas, but can result in lifting of the skin especially in the jowl and nasolabial fold areas.  Due to the new collagen formation, the surface of the skin can also take on a new healthy glow.  All of these benefits combioned result in a more youthful appearance.

Sculptra restores youthful shape, improves texture, helps results with other cosmetic treatments

+1

Sculptra is a biostimulatory filler, which means that it helps your body make its own collagen. Results appear gradually over 6 months, and last for at least 24 months. By putting your cells into a “happy, more youthful” state, you will respond better to other cosmetic treatments such as laser resurfacing, skin tightening, and intense pulsed light photorejuvenation. It can also improve texture, fine lines, pore size and pigmentation on its own.  We do Sculptra as part of an overall anti-aging strategy.


Results of treatment are very dependent on injection technique and the skill of the physician injector. See a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who is experienced in Sculptra treatments for best results and to lessen the risk of side effects or suboptimal improvement. Gradual improvement over time is great for a natural-looking, long term anti-aging program that avoids sudden changes to your appearance.

The benefits of facial enhancement using Sculptra

+1

Sculptra is one of my favorite products for restoring a more youthful shape to the face. The older concept that “tighter is better” has been replaced by recognizing the importance of volume distribution as a defining characteristic of a more youthful face. Restoration of volume in the upper face can lessen or reverse the bottom-heavy, deflated appearance of the aging face. Sculptra is the only FDA-approved filler that will last up to twenty-five months. A recent study showed that the majority of cosmetic patients would choose duration over immediacy when considering an injectable filler treatment.

The benefits of Sculptra

+1

Sculptra is a dermal stimulant for lack of better words.  It turns on your skins own collagen production machinery to grow collagen and fill out the face.  This obviously thickens the dermis also, which does wonders for the texture and appearance of the skin, in addition to the volumizing and rounding effects.

In addition to volume the other benefit is duration of effect. Sculptra lasts 2-3 x as long many other fillers.
