Sculptra Treatment in the New Year Offers Long-Lasting Benefits Beyond 2023

Posted on: January 4th, 2023 by Dr. Christopher Crosby

Have you been searching for a long-lasting rejuvenation treatment? Then Sculptra may be the treatment you have been looking for. Here, the talented doctors at Grossmont Dermatology Medical Clinic explain how Sculptra treatment in the new year offers long-lasting benefits beyond 2023.

What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a dermal filler treatment which is a gel-like substance that is injected under the skin to create a more youthful or fuller appearance (or both).

Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid which gradually stimulates collagen production in the targeted areas. Sculptra is used to add volume and reduce wrinkles.

Sculptra is typically used in areas of the face where there is volume loss. However, it may be used to treat other areas of concern including the temples and chin. It may even be used on other areas of the body to give the appearance of added muscle mass. Popular areas include the thighs and glutes.

Something patients should keep in mind when considering Sculptra is that the results are not immediate. It can take months for the effects of Sculptra to be fully apparent. This is a desired result for many patients because it is a gradual change that may be less conspicuous as a cosmetic procedure.

How Long Do Sculptra Results Last?

One of the many reasons that patients choose Sculptra is because it offers long-lasting benefits. The rejuvenating results of Sculptra can last up to two years. This means that patients can appreciate smoother and fuller skin long after their injections. 

What Are the Benefits of Sculptra?

Patients have a number of options when it comes to dermal fillers. Each treatment has its own benefits to consider.

Sculptra benefits include all of those discussed above. It is a treatment that can both reduce wrinkles and add volume. It is long-lasting and its aesthetic benefits can be enjoyed for up to two years after treatments. This is significant when compared to other dermal fillers.

Another benefit of Sculptra is that treatment requires no downtime. Patients may have some swelling and bruising in the targeted areas. However, the bruising and swelling should heal naturally following the injections. This means that patients can return to their daily lives as soon as they leave the office.
