Sculptra is a groundbreaking biostimulant that triggers natural skin regeneration. The loss of collagen in your skin is subtle and can start as early as the 20s. Sculptra is injected into the dermal layer to stimulate an increase in natural collagen – nature’s firming protein. For an incredibly natural level of skin renewal, Sculptra is a game-changer. At Aesthera, we focus on treatments that help to restore your natural beauty. Our specialists provide treatments of Sculptra in Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo, to help patients to achieve the skin of their dreams.

What is Sculptra, and how does it work?

The science behind Sculptra is far different than the technique of filling lines and wrinkles with a hyaluronic acid-based filler. The active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, a collagen stimulator. When injected, the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, sending a signal to your skin to produce more collagen. The injections are placed deeper in the dermal layer where collagen grows and restores a firmer, more elastic structure to aging skin.

What makes you a good candidate for Sculptra?

If you are feeling discouraged about the way age and gravity have impacted your skin, Sculptra treatments are a top-performer. The hollow look related to volume loss can be treated successfully with this innovative, versatile filler. Sculptra treatments are often used to enhance skin quality in people in their 40s and 50s, but may be used on people from ages 25 to 75, or even older. 

Should I expect to feel any pain during my treatment?

Our patients at Aesthera in Pismo Beach have reported being very comfortable when undergoing Sculptra injections. Depending on your treatment, several sessions may be needed. You will feel a pinch as the needle penetrates the skin’s surface. If you have any concerns about pain, we can use a local anesthetic for your comfort.

Sculptra FAQs:

Is there any downtime I need to consider?

There is no downtime with Sculptra, but it is common to have bruising after your treatment that will dissipate after a few days. You will need to allow for about an hour to complete the procedure, but once your treatment is done, you are free to continue your daily activities. You might experience some swelling or redness at the injection sites, which generally subside within the week.

How soon will I see my results?

If you want instant gratification, Sculptra might not be the right choice for you. With Sculptra, you are stimulating and restoring lost collagen, and you will need some patience before you see the magic of skin regeneration become visible. You should notice significant changes in four to six months. You will continue to watch your lines, creases, and folds melt away for another three months with optimal skin-rejuvenation achieved.

Will the results be long-lasting?

After your series of treatments is completed, you can expect the results of Sculptra to last from two to three years. With longer-lasting results and the natural look achieved with this remarkable injectable, it is a good investment in yourself!

How many Sculptra treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you receive can vary depending on your skin and overall goals. Most patients will undergo at least two injection sessions with Sculptra, and some may need as many as six. Your Sculptra injections are scheduled about 8 weeks apart.
