Sculptra is a unique injectable that works entirely differently than other dermal fillers on the market. Rather than smoothing lines, creases, and wrinkles, or adding volume with a hyaluronic acid-based formula, the active ingredient in Sculptra is PLLA, or poly-L-lactic acid. This unique acid works as a “collagen stimulator.” It works deep within the skin structure to trigger the production of natural collagen, leading to an extremely natural smoothing effect that occurs over time.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a designer injectable, developed to smooth away lines and wrinkles by triggering a regenerative effect within the skin. This injectable is made with microparticles of PLLA, which as they are absorbed, are replaced with natural collagen fibers, providing strength, thickness, and structure to thinning skin, naturally smoothing wrinkles and lines.

The natural way to refresh your look: Sculptra

At Radiance by Roller, our clients are exceptionally pleased with the results of a series of Sculptra injections. This injectable is favored by clients who want to look refreshed, healthy, and younger, but in the most natural way. The biocompatible synthetic PLLA in Sculptra is slowly absorbed in the body, and as it is absorbed, it stimulates the growth of natural collagen strands, the supporting fibers giving the skin flexibility, structure, and resilience.

What is the treatment experience with Sculptra?

When you are under the care of the skin rejuvenation experts at Radiance, your experience will be positive, empowering, and pleasant. You will be resting comfortably in a treatment chair, cared for by one of our injection specialists. Your face will be cleansed, and then the injection areas marked. A tiny hollow needle, called a cannula, is then placed through a tiny incision. 

The Sculptra is then injected meticulously, into the correct skin layer, to treat areas of laxity or volume loss. After the injections, the facial area is gently massaged to ensure the product integrates evenly through the skin layer. The entire treatment takes only about 45 minutes to complete, after which you are free to go back to your usual activities.

What are the benefits of Sculptra over other injectables?

Sculptra injections offer several benefits over other types of injectables:

  • Results last up to two years, or longer.
  • The rejuvenating effect looks entirely natural.
  • Rather than adding volume with synthetic filler, the skin regenerates from within.
  • Improvements in skin quality appear over time, not suddenly, and others will not notice you had treatment – they will just notice you look great.

What areas can be treated with Sculptra?

Sculptra can stimulate natural skin regeneration to smooth away any of the following signs of aging skin:

  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Cheekbones
  • Beneath the eyes
  • Creases from sides of mouth to nose

How many Sculptra treatments will produce the best skin rejuvenation result?

Every patient is different, but generally, a series of two to three injection sessions, spaced at one month intervals, will produce the optimal outcome.

What is the recovery time?

After your Sculptra injections, some swelling and bruising, as well as sensitivity can be expected. In the days following your injections, you will need to massage the treated area as directed by your Radiance provider. Swelling and bruising typically fades in about two to three days. Any lingering pain or sensitivity can easily be managed with over-the-counter pain medication, which is usually not necessary for more than a day or two.
