About Sculptra

Most of the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and the loss of volume, can be traced back to one age-related physiological change — the loss of collagen. As you grow older, your body starts producing a lower volume of collagen, a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm and plump. But thanks to modern aesthetic medicine, we can activate your body’s innate collagen production capabilities with a few simple injections — and that’s where Sculptra comes into the picture!

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a cosmetic injection that encourages your body to produce collagen, a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. The loss of collagen is responsible for most of the signs of aging, but Sculptra reverses that process. Sculptra is made of poly-l-lactic acid, a naturally occurring component that adds volume to your skin and stimulates collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to tighten the skin tissues, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and elevate facial contours.

The Sculptra Treatment Process

MAEVA Aesthetics performs highly personalized Sculptra after a comprehensive evaluation. Our cosmetic providers carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, analyze your skin type, and identify the ideal treatment areas. During the treatment, your facial skin is cleansed, and a numbing gel might be applied to your skin for comfort. The cosmetic provider will carefully deliver the appropriate units of Sculptra into targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles. The procedure concludes within 15 to 30 minutes.

Side Effects of Sculptra

Sculptra produces minimal post-treatment side effects. You may experience mild redness, swelling, tenderness, discomfort, and bruising around the treatment sites, but there are no harsh complications. The side effects usually dissipate within a few days. You can resume most of your daily activities immediately — no downtime. But you should avoid strenuous workouts and exercise for several days.

Onset & Longevity of Results

Sculptra produces immediate improvements after the treatment — your facial skin might look smoother and fuller. But the true results appear gradually over several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers. The final results last two or more years, following which you may need additional treatments.
