Sculptra: The Biostimulator Filler

The issue of lines, wrinkles, and loss of facial volume due to aging or genetics can be a source of concern for many individuals. Biostimulators have emerged as a promising treatment option for this concern. Unlike other treatments that rely on hyaluronic acid to restore lost volume, biostimulators stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, resulting in natural-looking and long-lasting outcomes. This approach offers a unique advantage over traditional treatments and has garnered significant attention in aesthetic medicine.

What Is a Biostimulator Filler and How Does It Work?

Collagen stimulating injections were first introduced in 2004 as durable fillers that not only provided sculpting and contour changes, but also stimulated collagen growth, unlike Hyaluronic Acid Fillers which gradually degrade. Cosmetic doctors observed that the skin in the treated areas exhibited an enhanced appearance. Extensive research and experimentation on the saline-to-product ratios and injection techniques led to a consensus among medical professionals, based on rigorous study and peer-reviewed articles, that these products have the potential to enhance the skin through collagen induction or stimulation.

Sculptra is a biostimulator composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible synthetic substance that has been extensively employed in medical devices such as dissolvable sutures. In contrast to natural collagen-based fillers, Sculptra functions as a collagen stimulator, augmenting collagen levels and facilitating the natural regeneration of skin. Its rejuvenating effects are gradual, as the body requires time to generate new collagen. Nevertheless, Sculptra is an exceptional dermal filler treatment for repairing damaged skin cells, reducing deep wrinkles, enhancing facial volume, and improving skin plumpness. Sculptra injections are also among the longest-lasting fillers, producing outcomes that can persist for 2 to 3 years.

Sculptra: The Secret Weapon

Maintaining a timeless and luminous appearance is a universal aspiration, yet the aging process inevitably leads to the deterioration of the skin’s integrity, characterized by the degradation of dermal collagen and the emergence of conspicuous signs of aging. Fortunately, Sculptra presents a viable remedy for facial aging. Sculptra has obtained approval from the F.D.A  to state that it has “clinically shown to reduce cheek wrinkles, firm the skin and improve skin quality”. This is something the hyaluronic dermal fillers have not shown to do.

Sculptra is an excellent solution for skin depression. The treatment has become the biostimulator/filler of choice for treating lack of elasticity in the skin. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate your natural collagen production, enhancing facial volume, and correcting common conditions such as wrinkles, fine lines, and hollow cheeks. This cosmetic injectable offers a long-lasting and discreet rejuvenation result, making it highly preferable.

Sculptra corrects areas that other fillers cannot and has long-lasting results. It stimulates collagen production instead of just filling spaces, so it can enhance temporal depressions, hollow temples and eyes, and deep nasolabial folds. By refilling lost volume in these areas, Sculptra restores youthful contours to the face. Compared to other facial fillers, it offers long-lasting results, making it perfect for patients seeking a youthful appearance that lasts. Sculptra’s results can last up to two years, minimizing the need for touch-ups and disruptions to daily life.

When Will I See Results from Sculptra?

Sculptra’s impact is gradual, but it helps your body produce natural collagen, so the results should continue to improve over time. After the injections, you will initially look great and fuller, but the effects of the injection itself slowly dissipate as the liquid solution containing the Sculptra particles is absorbed by your body. Expect to look like you did before treatment within 24-48 hours (about 2 days). Then, your skin will use polylactic acid to make collagen and build up to those results again. Results usually take 4-8 weeks (about 1-2 months) to appear, but some patients see a difference sooner. For longer-lasting results, most patients complete three rounds of treatment.

What Is a Sculptra BBL?

As previously talked about, Sculptra was originally designed to address volume loss in facial regions. However, it has proven to be highly effective in stimulating collagen production over time. At Elizabeth Roche MedSpa, we utilize Sculptra injections to enhance the buttocks by filling in dimples, hollowness, and creases, resulting in a fuller and more voluminous appearance. This procedure is known as a “Sculptra BBL,” which offers a nonsurgical alternative to the surgical procedure of a “Brazilian Butt Lift”.
A Brazilian Butt Lift with Sculptra for a simple and easy procedure. No liposuction or recovery time from fat harvest is needed, and you will not have to sit on donuts or avoid sitting altogether. The injections take only 30 minutes and are almost painless, with only bruising as a side effect. The results can last for years! In contrast, a surgical BBL requires weeks of recovery time, exercise and sitting restrictions, and may even require additional procedures. Choose Sculptra for a hassle-free Brazilian Butt Lift.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Sculptra?

If you want to restore volume to hollow areas on your face caused by aging or weight loss, you are a suitable candidate. If you want to maintain the youthful appearance you currently have right now, you are also a candidate for Sculptra. Our semi-permanent filler is perfect for you as it provides natural, long-lasting results. It helps your body produce collagen, filling in lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance on your face, as well as other areas of the body such as neck, chest, legs and buttocks. Both men and women between the ages of 25 and 75 have achieved successful outcomes with these treatments.
