Sculptra Aesthetic is a popular choice for those looking to correct signs of aging. This injectable treatment helps to restore lost volume in the face, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Here, we will discuss the benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic and how it can help you achieve a more youthful look.
What Is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to help restore facial volume and reduce the appearance of deep facial wrinkles by replacing lost collagen. Moreover, it enhances the cheeks and creates a more youthful appearance. It is a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic material that has been FDA-approved for humans since 1999.
How Is Sculptra Done?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a facial injectable that is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as well as to add volume to the face. It works by stimulating the natural collagen production, which helps to improve the skin’s appearance over time.
Sculptra Aesthetic is administered into the deep dermis of the skin by a series of PLLA injections. It stimulates collagen production and brings back the inner structure and volume of the skin as the skin absorbs the PLLA microparticles.
What Are the Benefits of Sculptra?
The key benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic include:
- A more youthful appearance
- Improved skin tone and texture

Is Sculptra Painful?
One of the most common questions about Sculptra is whether it’s painful or not. Good news: It is not! The procedure is relatively painless. Most people report only a slight stinging sensation during treatment.
What Should Be Done to Prepare for and After the Sculptra?
Now that you know about the benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic, you might be wondering what you need to do before and after your treatment.
Preparation is key when getting the most out of your Sculptra Aesthetic treatment. Sun exposure and tanning are fine and do not cause side effects before your treatment.
You must make sure to tell your doctor if you are taking any blood thinners, as these can increase the risk of bruising and swelling.
Once your treatment is complete, it’s essential to keep your skin hydrated. Make sure to drink plenty of water and use a good moisturizer—your doctor may even recommend a specific product. Lastly, avoid excessive sun exposure and use harsh or abrasive skincare products.
What to Expect After the Treatment and Downtime of Sculptra?
Now that you know about the benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic for anti-aging, it’s essential to understand what to expect after the treatment and its downtime.
You may experience minor side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, and itching on the injection site after your treatment. There is also a very minimal risk of infection, which can be treated with antibiotics if necessary. In some instances, you might find lumps under your skin when pressing on the treated area. But all of these will usually resolve within a few days.
You might experience a slight downtime of 1-2 days after receiving Sculptra Aesthetic. You could also have slight redness on the treated area.
How Long Does It Take for Results to Show?
The good news is that Sculptra Aesthetic is a long-term solution, and you should start to see results about 2~3 weeks after the sessions. However, the full effects of treatment may only be visible after a few months.
How Many Times Do You Need to Receive a Sculptra?
So, how many times do you need to receive a Sculptra treatment? The short answer is: it depends. The number of sessions you’ll need will vary depending on your age, skin type, and desired results. Most people require a minimum of three treatment sessions, but you may need more or less depending on your circumstances.
Our doctors can give you a better idea of how many treatments you’ll need during your consultation. So far, Sculptra is a safe and effective treatment that can last up to two years, so you can rest assured that you’re making a long-term investment in your appearance.

One of the best things about Sculptra Aesthetic is that the results are long-lasting. Although full results of Sculptra Aesthetic do not show immediately and can appear gradually, it can last up to two years.
