Sculptra St Pete

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic filler that is used to restore facial volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. It is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible material that stimulates the body's natural collagen production. As a result, Sculptra provides gradual, long-lasting results that can last up to two years.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra works by stimulating the body's natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives the skin its structure and support. When injected into the skin, Sculptra particles create a scaffold around which new collagen can grow. Over time, this new collagen fills in the wrinkles and folds, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks of Sculptra treatment?

The risks of Sculptra treatment are relatively low. However, there is a small risk of infection, bleeding, bruising, and swelling. There is also a small risk of developing granuloma, which are small, hard lumps that can form under the skin.

How many Sculptra treatments do I need?

The number of Sculptra treatments you need will depend on your individual needs and desired outcomes. Most people see optimal results after two to three treatments.

What should I do before and after my Sculptra treatment?

Before your treatment, it is important to avoid blood thinners, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, as these can increase the risk of bleeding. After your treatment, you should avoid strenuous activity and sun exposure. You should also apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays.

How much does Sculptra cost?

The cost of Sculptra treatment will vary depending on your location, provider, and the number of treatments you need. However, Sculptra is generally considered to be a more cost-effective option than other fillers due to its long-lasting results.

What are the alternatives to Sculptra?

There are a number of other injectable fillers available, such as hyaluronic acid fillers and fat grafting. These fillers can provide similar results to Sculptra, but they may not last as long. You should discuss your options with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to determine which filler is right for you.
