Sculptra Treatment for Facial Rejuvenation

Table of Contents

Aging process is inevitable and catches up with most of us eventually. We start to lose collagen and elastin that give our skin that youthful bounce and glow, and subsequently fine lines and wrinkles begin to develop. Sculptra, a unique dermal filler that stimulates collagen production, helps to improve on wrinkle reduction and restoration of facial volume. Results develop gradually, natural-looking and last much longer than most other injectables. If you’re ready to turn back the clock, this injectable treatment is worth a look.

What is Sculptra?

The FDA-approved Sculptra treatment is an injectable filler to replenish lost collagen to repair deep facial creases and folds and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Unlike regular hyaluronic acid  fillers, Sculptra is made of PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid) collagen stimulator, stimulating your body’s natural collagen synthesis to restore lost collagen. Once injected into the face, Sculptra stimulates the natural growth of new collagen. When PLLA microparticles are completely absorbed, they begin to repair collagen strands, gradually restoring face volume to minimize the appearance of visible skin folds and deep wrinkles.

Collagen development happens gradually, so it may take several months before the improvements in the face fully take hold. But the gradual onset of improvement often makes patients look completely natural, less overfilled and have longer lasting results.

Benefits of Sculptra Treatment

  • Minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime
  • Natural-looking result from collagen stimulation
  • Longer lasting results, could last for about two years

Who Needs Sculptra Treatment?

Sculptra targets facial regions prone to noticeable symptoms of aging, such as wrinkles and facial folds, as well as tackling loss of facial volume which can happen with the natural aging process or dramatic weight loss. 

Sculptra can be used to treat:

  • The nasolabial folds (lines between Mouth and Nose)
  • Cheek and chin wrinkles
  • Sunken and saggy cheeks
  • Hollow temple region
  • Jawline definition

The Sculptra Treatment Process

The Sculptra treatment begins with a consultation with your doctor. This consultation will include a discussion of the regions you want to focus on, the desired outcomes and possible adverse effects of the treatment.

Before starting the treatment, a topical anesthetic would be applied on the face for about 30 minutes to minimize any discomfort the injection would bring. Each treatment session will take around 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treated region. After the Sculptra treatment, there is minimal to zero downtime, so patients may resume their normal routine immediately.

Recovery After Sculptra Treatment

Because Sculptra is an injectable filler, most of the side effects are related to injections. That includes minor swelling, soreness, redness, bruising at the site of injection, which normally subside within a few days.

Facial massage after treatment is very important to stimulate the collagen. Firmly massage the entire treatment area 5 times daily for 5 minutes, for 5 days.

Results of Sculptra Treatment

Because collagen production needs time to build up, it generally takes 4-6 weeks for the optimum results to appear. Following that, you should see modest improvements as your skin texture, tone, and volume improves. Results are natural and become noticeable after 2-4 sessions (based on individual concerns). 

Sculptra are particularly long-lasting and can be expected to last up to 2 years.

Cost of Sculptra Treatment

Sculptra cost from RM 3000 depending on the number of vials used during the treatment.
