Sculptra at age 59
Sculptra and the Age of the Patient
Sculptra is a fabulous product for facial injections. Sculptra is not age dependent. I have patients of all ages who are great candidates for Sculptra. Sculptra works well if you need volume in a given area of the face. With the correct injections, the results are natural and long-lasting.

Sculptra and Patient Age
Best age for Sculptra therapy
Sculptra is found to be a mild filler but a more powerful bio-stimulant of collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin and other dermal, subcutaneous and bone molecules. It seems to firm, build and repair rather than volumize from the mass of the product injected.
Age is not the determining factor in whether Sculptra is best for you. Considerations include:
- medical history,
- bruising and swelling potential,
- dermal injury from weather or sun,
- dermal thickness from heredity and personal genetics,
- skin laxity,
- soft tissue (fat and muscle) laxity,
- acceptance to multiple sessions and recovery periods,
- cost and budget.
- other factors.
It is best to seek the opinion of a very competent, well experienced and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dermatologist or other skilled and talented injector with this particular product.
I wish you the best!
Sculptra and Age
At 59, you will probably need closer to 6-7 vials of Sculptra over 3-4 sessions, each one 6 weeks apart from the previous one. This should allow you to get a good result. Rarely, patients don't see the result they want usually because they have considerable amount of sagging skin which needs to be tightened to better address the underlying issue of volume loss.
Seeking out a physician who can offer both options is in your best interest. Good Luck.
