Sculptra® can help!

Do you want to erase years off your face or add some lift to your rear?

Sculptra® can help refresh and enhance your appearance without surgery or downtime. This injectable filler adds subtle volume by stimulating your natural collagen for gradual yet noticeable changes that can make you look up to ten years younger.

Sculptra fills in lost fullness in the face, lifts drooping cheeks, smooths creases around eyes and mouth and restores shape to sagging buttocks. If pregnancy, weight loss or aging has softened your facial contours or flattened your backside, a few Sculptra treatments can rewind time. You’ll look naturally refreshed and contoured, not fake or sudden. Plus, there’s no need to hide out while you recover. You can get Sculptra over your lunch break and pop back into your busy day.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable filler used to restore facial volume, smooth wrinkles and contour the face. This unique product also offers a nonsurgical option to lift, augment and better define the shape of the buttocks. Sculptra gradually revitalizes collagen lost due to aging or changes in weight. It creates a subtle but noticeable rejuvenating effect. If you want to regain a youthful appearance in the face or enhance your rear curves, Sculptra could be an excellent solution for you.

Details

What is Sculptra Made Of?

Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic polymer that stimulates collagen production. Over time, the PLLA microparticles degrade and are eliminated by the body, while the collagen that is formed remains to provide a more youthful, voluminous appearance.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra works by kickstarting the body’s natural collagen production. The PLLA microparticles gradually increase volume by revitalizing weakened collagen and stimulating new collagen formation. Results appear over the course of several weeks and improve gradually over the first few months.

Is Sculptra Different Than Fillers?

Unlike most fillers that add volume, Sculptra stimulates collagen production for a more gradual, natural-looking enhancement. Rather than just filling wrinkles and gaps, it reinforces the underlying structure of the treatment area.

1

Ingredients

Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) microparticles that are bio-stimulatory rather than instantly volumizing. Most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite spheres to replace lost volume directly.

2

Results Timeline

Sculptra takes longer to reveal its full effects – up to six months – as it relies on the body’s collagen regeneration. Standard fillers show their impact immediately after injection.

3

Longevity

The results from Sculptra can take up to two years for natural-appearing consistency. Traditional dermal fillers using spheres tend to last 6-18 months before breaking down and absorbing.

4

Treatment Areas

Due to its unique collagen-stimulating properties, Sculptra can treat some areas that standard fillers cannot effectively improve, like the temples, jawline and buttocks.

5

Injection Technique

Sculptra is injected differently than traditional fillers, requiring a proper fanning or cross-hatching technique to disperse the PLLA particles. Precise skill and training are essential to achieve smooth, uniform results.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Sculptra?

Sculptra is highly versatile when it comes to enhancing different parts of the body, especially the face and buttocks regions.

Face

Sculptra first gained popularity as an injectable for facial rejuvenation. Sculptra on the face produces extremely natural yet refreshed and vibrant results.

  • Hollow or sunken cheeks – Sculptra replaces lost volume in the midface for a plump, youthful appearance.
  • Under eye hollows and dark circles – Fills in tear troughs and builds collagen under the thin eye skin.
  • Sagging jawline and jowls – Defines and contours the jaw and lifts jowls.
  • Marionette lines and wrinkles – Smooth vertical lines around the mouth and fine surface wrinkles.
  • Temple hollows – Fills temples to lift brows and reduce forehead wrinkles.

Butt

The versatility of Sculptra extends to the buttocks for augmentation, lifting and contouring. With precise injection techniques, Sculptra excels at revealing smooth and balanced curves.

  • Lifts flat or sagging buttocks – Restores lift and perkiness to flatten, drooping buttocks
  • Increases the volume of upper buttocks – Augments the top of the buttocks to create fullness and lift
  • Defines hips and thighs – Contours the outer hips and top of thighs to achieve an hourglass figure
  • Reshapes asymmetrical buttocks – Corrects unevenness between cheeks and shapes a rounded contour
  • Restores volume lost from weight changes – Plumps flattened buttocks resulting from weight loss
  • Recontours post-pregnancy shape – Brings back pre-baby curves and lift to postpartum buttocks

What Is the Recovery Like After Sculptra?

Sculptra has minimal recovery time, which is one of the benefits of the treatment. You will not have to completely restrict your daily activities as you would after a surgical procedure. Here are the typical aftercare experiences with Sculptra:

Immediately After

You may experience minor bruising, swelling, redness and discomfort in the treatment area. This typically fades within a few days. Some patients apply makeup immediately after to hide any temporary marks on the face.

First 5 Days

Take it easy even though you can do most activities as usual. Avoid rigorous exercise, harsh saunas and direct intense sunlight. You may wear a compression garment to help support swelling. Keep the area clean to prevent infection.

First Week

Over the next week, swelling should fully resolve, and you’ll begin to see some subtle changes from the collagen stimulation. Most people are comfortable going back to their regular routine at this point.

Several Weeks Later

Over the next several weeks and months, you’ll continue to notice gradual improvement from ongoing collagen production. Stay hydrated, eat nutritiously, sleep well and avoid extreme temperature fluctuations to help support the regenerative process.

Long-Term

Some evidence shows diet and nutrition can impact the longevity of Sculptra results. Avoid significant fluctuations in weight and follow a collagen-boosting diet (e.g., healthy fats, vitamin C). Most patients opt for touch-up treatments once per year or two to maintain results for as long as possible.

The short recovery period with Sculptra makes it easy to integrate into your life. Proper aftercare for the first week helps ensure you heal smoothly. Be patient in seeing improvements over the first few months – they will unfold gradually but lasting.

Longevity of Sculptra Results

Sculptra can produce long-lasting results in both the face and body when injected properly. However, the results are not permanent.

Face

Most patients see facial rejuvenation results last up to 2 years before starting to reverse. The gradual collagen stimulation creates youthful facial contours and volume that remain intact for 24 months. Certain areas like temples and midface tend to be longer-lasting.

Buttocks

For rear lifts, the projected longevity of Sculptra is shorter – averaging 1-2 years until touch-ups are recommended. The buttocks area tends to experience more mechanical influences from exercise, clothing and other external factors that impact durability. With lifestyle factors like weight maintenance, some patients enjoy the effects as long as possible before opting for refresher appointments.

Follow-Up Treatments

Consistency with follow-ups for touch-ups is vital for prolonged, lasting improvements with Sculptra. For both facial and buttocks rejuvenation, follow-up maintenance treatments are essential for sustaining long-term results. Having refresher appointments before your results are entirely diminished has a cumulative effect, requiring less product and frequency over time.

Benefits of Sculptra Cellulite Therapy in Kansas City & Liberty

1

Safe & Convenient

There is limited downtime associated with Sculptra cellulite therapy. Some patients experience initial soreness, bruising and tenderness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time. Most people can go to work the very next day following treatment.

2

Proven, Sustainable Results

Sculptra cellulite therapy is FDA approved to treat cellulite for a period of 2-5 years.

Sculptra for Butt Lifts

Sculptra can be used as a nonsurgical alternative to lift, augment and contour the buttocks. It adds volume that restructures and defines the buttocks.

How is a Sculptra Butt Lift Performed?

Sculptra is carefully injected deep under the skin into buttocks areas that need increased volume or lift. The microparticles stimulate new collagen production, giving gradual, natural-looking results. 

1

Multi-Point Injections from a Skilled Specialist

The injection technique and placement locations are tailored to your unique trouble spots and desired results. Common areas are the upper buttocks or sides. Multiple injection points and angles are used to achieve optimal coverage and natural-looking results. Precision placement is crucial.

2

Mild Swelling and Discomfort After

Some mild swelling, tenderness or redness is common for a few days following the injections. This quickly resolves.

3

Protect Treatment Area

A compression garment is worn for about five days while the Sculptra settles. Massaging helps evenly distribute the particles.

4

Optimal Results Require Multiple Sessions

Achieving a smooth, proportional lift and augmentation requires customized injection strategies from a highly trained injector and proper follow-up care. Be patient for subtle changes over weeks to months as the treatment works gradually. 2-3 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart allow the collagen to regenerate for the best possible enhancement continually.

What to Expect from a Sculptra Butt Lift

1

Enhance Your Natural Contours

The nonsurgical nature of Sculptra butt lift makes it appealing. Still, the real draw is the ability to enhance your natural contours gradually and appropriately for a perky yet highly soft, seamless outcome. And Scultpra can be combined with other butt augmentation options for more dramatic results.

2

Gradual, Natural-Looking Improvements

Results from a Sculptra butt lift appear gradually over several weeks to months as the injected microparticles stimulate new structural collagen deep beneath the skin. This reinforcing collagen forms to lift, add fullness and better define the shape of your buttocks. Enhancements look very smooth and seamless, not sudden or fake.

3

Lasting Collagen Formation

The natural collagen formed during the months after your Sculptra injections provides ongoing lifting and volumizing effects. As your body continually produces more collagen, your buttocks stay smoother, fuller and more youthfully contoured. This process means the benefits compound over the first six months.

4

Minimally Invasive Approach

Because Sculptra butt lift is an injectable procedure, it is far less invasive than surgical augmentation, with a fraction of the recovery time. There are little to no cuts, incisions or wounds from the treatment. You experience only mild post-injection soreness for a couple of days.

5

Improved Skin Texture

In addition to the restructuring effects beneath the skin, Sculptra improves the superficial skin quality. As fresh collagen develops, it stimulates new healthy skin turnover and regeneration for an all-around smoother, vibrant, more youthful butt appearance.

Who Makes an Ideal Sculptra Butt Lift Candidate?

Sculptra buttock enhancement is suitable for a variety of individuals seeking moderate improvements in shape, lift, volume and contour. Talk to your provider about whether your unique anatomy and aesthetic objectives make you suited for Sculptra butt enhancement. Those with adequate natural fullness and fat respond best. Very thin patients may need supplemental augmentation options in combination. Good candidates include:

Someone Seeking Subtle Enhancement

Patients in overall good health who desire gradual, natural-looking augmentation are great Sculptra candidates. It brings subtle definition.

Restoring Post-Pregnancy Curves

Sculptra excels at restoring volume, fullness and lift lost after pregnancy and childbirth, leading to a flattened, wider buttock shape.

Nonsurgical Lift and Contouring

People who want moderate adjustment in the projection, proportions, symmetry or lift of their rear without extensive surgery make ideal Sculptra candidates.

Recontouring Imbalanced Body Shape

The buttocks’ shaping abilities make Sculptra effective for balancing out disproportionate shapes between the midsection, hips and thighs.

Replacing Volume After Weight Loss

Individuals who lost fullness in the buttocks due to weight loss find Sculptra rejuvenates lost dimension that can make the rear look saggy or flat.

Moderate Improvement Over Extreme Augmentation

Those seeking significant yet natural-looking enhancement rather than large volumes of augmentation get excellent outcomes with Sculptra.

  • Little recovery time
  • Lower cost
  • Subtle, gradual results
  • Non-permanent, but long-lasting
