Not all dermal fillers are created equal. In today’s market, there are many effective options for people who want to smooth wrinkles, restore youthful volume, and enhance their features. Still, one of these products stands out as truly unique. In fact, it is sometimes called the “un-filler” dermal filler. Instead of instantly filling a line or wrinkle, FDA-approved Sculptra® Aesthetic actually stimulates your skin to produce more of its own collagen over time. This process creates beautifully natural results that are 100% YOU and last up to two years! Here are five reasons why Sculptra® has become so popular in managing the effects of aging on the skin and turning back the clock on your appearance.

#1 – Sculptra® encourages natural collagen growth

Collagen production in the body naturally decreases as we get older. It also becomes depleted from sun damage and other environmental and lifestyle factors. Wrinkles are one of the first visible signs of collagen loss because collagen is the most common protein in the body that helps support the skin’s structure and volume

Sculptra® is injected into the deep layers of the skin where collagen naturally exists and is made. It works by depositing small poly-L-lactic (PLLA) beads into the tissue, the same material that dissolvable sutures are made of. As the beads biodegrade, they stimulate the skin to produce new collagen. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume, structure, and contour over time.


#2 – Sculptra® can go places other fillers can’t

Sculptra® can do wonders in the hands of an experienced and qualified injector. Because it isn’t a true “filler,” Sculptra® can be utilized to encourage collagen growth and support in areas of the face where traditional fillers are rarely used and may look unnatural. These include places like the flat surface of the cheek, crepey skin on the neck, and deeply hollowed temples. It is crucial to seek out a provider who has received advanced training in these areas and is experienced with Sculptra®. The Injection Specialists at Skin Artisans have combined DECADES of experience injecting Sculptra® and other dermal fillers.


#3 – Sculptra® provides maximum results with little to no downtime

Patients love Sculptra® because it provides significant, visible results with little to no downtime. Like any dermal filler treatment, you may experience slight swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection site for 12-48 hours after your appointment. Still, you can immediately return to your normal activities. Although gratification from Sculptra® is more delayed than other fillers, most patients find the results and longevity well worth waiting for!


#4 – Sculptra® offers incredibly natural results

If you are someone who wants to appear more youthful-looking without appearing like you had “work” done, then chances are that Sculptra® is an excellent option for you. Sculptra® works subtly, improving facial areas over weeks and months. This gradual progression, and the fact that it is your OWN collagen and elastin creating the new volume, make the results of Sculptra® wholly authentic and 100% YOU – albeit a younger-looking version!

#5 – Sculptra® results last a LONG time

Sculptra® should not be viewed as a temporary filler because it actually stimulates your skin to grow more of its own collagen. Once new growth has been established and your skin’s support structure has been strengthened, expect these results to last up to two years.

Most patients require two to three treatments spaced one month apart, depending on your degree of volume loss. Results gradually reveal themselves between four to six months after your last treatment. Once they have concluded their initial treatment, many patients opt to schedule a Sculptra® treatment every other year to continue encouraging the growth of fresh collagen and compensate for what is lost due to the natural aging process. Sculptra® can be used in conjunction with other fillers so you can enjoy instant and gradual, long-lasting results!
