The Science Behind Sculptra®: How It Works

The Science Behind Sculptra® How It Works | Novo Medical Aesthetics

Due to age, genetics, gravity, lifestyle choices, and other factors, your skin develops wrinkles. You have likely tried traditional skincare treatments, only to find they promise the world and deliver short-lived results. Not to mention the multiple applications required. Sculptra is an advanced cosmetic skincare treatment that offers long-lasting, natural-looking results. Sculptra is a versatile injectable that treats wrinkles and fine lines on your face and other areas of your body. 

At Novo Medical Aesthetics, we offer Sculptra injections. If you would like to know more about the benefits of Sculptra, call or visit us in Ridgefield, CT, to schedule a consultation. 

More Than Just a Skincare Treatment 

We offer more than a skincare treatment that reduces wrinkles. We are patient-focused and aim to create a comfortable and relaxing environment so that you can enjoy your treatment and benefit from the results. The Sculptra treatments we offer are customized to suit your needs. Your first step to wrinkle-free skin is a phone call away. 

How Does Sculptra Work? 

Sculptra is an FDA-approved minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that targets wrinkles and fine lines on multiple areas of your body. The technology used in Sculptra provides a low-risk treatment. Sculptra stimulates your body’s natural collagen production because of the small amounts of poly-L-lactic acid in the serum. Collagen is a fibrous protein that supports your skin’s structure. Collagen also helps your skin retain moisture by supporting your hyaluronic acid levels. Hyaluronic acid helps maintain firm skin as you age. Sculptra is injected under your skin and stimulates collagen production gradually over a few weeks. 

An increase in volume is noticeable in this period too. The results you achieve with Sculptra can last up to two years with a few follow-up treatments. 

Why are Sculptra Injections Unique? 

Sculptra does not only targets wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds. It increases the volume of your skin and builds the facial structure. Sculptra is the world’s first biocompatible collagen stimulator. Sculptra is perfect for men and women of all ages, and it can be used on most skin types and skin tones safely. This is because it uses a synthetic version of your body’s collagen and does not rely on animal-derived biostimulators. This lowers the chance of allergic reactions. 

What is Sculptra BBL? 

Sculptra butt lift is a non-surgical treatment that alters the shape of your buttocks. Alternative treatments typically use hyaluronic acid to add volume to a target area. However, Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid, which is injected into your dermal layers to stimulate collagen production and increase volume. 

What are Sculptra Hip Dips? 

Sculptra can also alter the shape of your hips without using surgical incisions to achieve results. This procedure is called Sculptra hip dips and increases collagen production in the target area. 

What Are the Benefits of Sculptra? 

Sculptra uses advanced biocompatible technology and relies on poly-L-lactic acid to significantly reduce the signs of aging. Here are some reasons to choose Sculptra: 

Treats Deeper Layers

Sculptra does not only treat the surface of your skin. It goes into deeper layers to stimulate collagen production and make your skin healthier. It also improves the natural contours and structure of your face. 

Reduces the Appearance of Scars 

Sculptra can reduce the appearance of moderate scarring caused by acne and chickenpox. 

Restores Skin Elasticity 

As you age, your skin loses elastin, a chemical responsible for keeping your skin firm, and starts to sag. Sculptra restores elasticity in your skin and rebuilds underlying muscle structure. 

Natural-looking Results

The results you achieve with Sculptra appear gradually and discreetly, resulting in natural-looking skin. These results will continue to improve over six months after your treatment session and last up to two years. 

What Does Sculptra Treat? 

Sculptra is a versatile treatment that can be used for many areas of concern. This includes the following: 

  • It decreases the appearance of marionette lines. 
  • Corrects the hollow areas in your temples. 
  • Reduces and may even remove nasolabial folds.
  • Increases volume in your cheeks. 
  • Reduces wrinkles on your mouth, nose, and around your eyes. 
  • Restores volume to your hips and buttocks. 

How many Sculptra Sessions Do I Need? 

Due to the nature of Sculptra, you can see initial results after just one treatment. However, to achieve optimal results, a few treatment sessions are necessary. The amount of sessions you need depends on your skin condition and your desired results. Typically, 3-4 treatments will give you long-lasting effects that will improve the condition of your skin from the inside out for up to two years. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your desired results and assess your skin concerns to create a customized treatment plan. 

What to Expect After Treatment 

Sculptra does not require any downtime after treatments. This is a perfect treatment if you lead a busy lifestyle and struggle to carve out time for yourself. After your treatment, you can continue with daily activities, such as driving and going back to work. We recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours.
