Sculptra advertises the same effects as injections such as Botox and Dysport, but as more of a long-lasting and gradual approach to replacing collagen lost naturally with aging. Generally, patients are injected with Sculptra three times over a few months, with the effects possibly lasting more than two years.
Benefits of Sculptra
Designed to best benefit patients who experienced a significant fat loss, Sculptra is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can restore a youthful appearance to a patient’s face. The injections may result in slight swelling, but patients should be able to return to daily activities immediately after treatment. Once completed, Sculptra’s benefits can last for two years, but as always, each patient is different and should expect their results to vary depending on their personal needs and treatment.
Sculptra works to promote the natural production of collagen in your face, helping your body reduce the appearance of fat loss in your face. Sculptra is FDA-approved and is used for applications ranging from stitches to implants. Over time, Sculptra will be absorbed by the body and is therefore completely safe. The number of treatments will vary from patient to patient but generally, three to six treatments are required.
