Sculptra is a dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, it is known to stimulate collagen production to replace collagen lost with age. Most commonly, it is injected in the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin to fill out wrinkles and hollows. However, as a filler, there are many uses of Sculptra and it is extremely versatile.
As a facial filler, Sculptra can help rejuvenate your facial features and make up for lost volume. It can provide more durable results over time as collagen comes in to fill the area. Sculptra also tends to last longer than hyaluronic acid fillers, sometimes up to two years.
A new, revolutionary use of Sculptra is in the non-surgical Brazilian butt lift. During this procedure, Sculptra (sometimes on it’s own or in combination with other components) is injected into the backside to provide a fuller look. The Sculptra, while a temporary filler, will then stimulate collagen production which can lead to long lasting results.
Many Sculptra treatments require touch ups until you reach your desired look. However, once you achieve the results you want, you may no longer require injections. During a consultation at Seattle Plastic Surgery, your provider can determine if Sculptra will benefit you and move towards your cosmetic goals.
