Sculptra

Sculptra Treatment in Houston

Sculptra is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin and restore youthful volume. Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, resulting in gradual, long-lasting improvement in skin texture and firmness. This injectable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) treatment is ideal for addressing facial wrinkles, fine lines, and lost volume due to aging or weight loss. With a series of treatments, Sculptra provides subtle, natural-looking results that can last up to two years, making it a popular choice for those seeking a non-surgical solution to enhance their appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

As the first—and original—injectable collagen stimulator containing microparticles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA-SCA), Sculptra helps restore facial skin structure, which may provide long-lasting skin improvement.

On average, you will have 2 to 3 treatment sessions over the course of a few months. The number of injections at each session will vary based on the treatment plan determined by you and your aesthetic professional.

Most clinical study participants saw results as soon as 1 month, with sustained results for up to 2 years. Work with your aesthetics professional on a treatment plan. Typical treatment is 3 sessions spaced at least 3 to 4 weeks apart.

Massage the treated area to evenly distribute Sculptra. A good rule of thumb is 5-5-5: Massage the injected area for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days in a row.

Sculptra is used to correct shallow-to-deep wrinkles and folds on the face. Administered with the appropriate injection technique from a trained specialist, Sculptra is clinically approved for:

  • Cheek wrinkles
  • Deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), also called “smile lines”
  • Lines framing the mouth (marionette lines)
  • Chin wrinkles

If there are no complications, you may apply makeup several hours after treatment. Be sure to consult your provider after treatment.

Sculptra is FDA-approved in the United States and has been used worldwide since 1999. Sculptra is made of a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid that is absorbed naturally by the body and has been used for years in dissolvable stitches.

Since Sculptra does not contain any human or animal components, no allergy testing is needed prior to treatments.

Side effects reported include injection site pain, redness, bruising, tenderness, itching and lumps, bleeding, and swelling. Small bumps under the skin can sometimes be noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, with or without inflammation, have also been reported.

There are several factors that figure into how much treatment will cost, including:

  • Number of treatment sessions needed
  • Number of Sculptra vials used per session
  • Degree of necessary correction determined by you and your specialist
  • Specialist fees
  • Discounts and special offers

Since injection costs will vary from person to person, the best way to determine projected costs is to consult your provider. Average total treatment package costs can range from $800 to $3,500.

Comparing the cost of facial rejuvenation options can be challenging, because so much depends on desired results, the amount of product your doctor recommends, your response to treatment, and the amount of time results last.

A facial filler treatment that lasts 3 to 6 months may cost less up-front than one that lasts much longer, but it will generally require additional treatment sessions to maintain the effect for the same duration as one longer-lasting treatment. You may want to consider the total cost over time.

Coupon or rebate programs through Galderma and/or a specialist may be available from time to time. It’s a good idea to ask your specialist if there’s a discount program available at the time of consultation.
