Sculptra is an injectable medication that is used to re-contour the face and other body areas by adding volume, creating a fuller and more youthful appearance. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid and is designed to stimulate your body’s own collagen production over a period of 1-3 months.
One of the primary benefits of Sculptra is its long-lasting results. While other injectables may require multiple treatments to maintain their effects, Sculptra can provide results that last up to two years with just a few sessions. The treatment works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production and the results gradually appear with time, resulting in a subtle and natural-looking enhancement.

What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a sterile, injectable, biocompatible, biodegradable material that is made of very small particles of a synthetic polymer named “poly-L-lactic acid” (PLLA), carboxymethylcellulose (USP), non-pyrogenic mannitol (USP) and sterile water for injection (USP). It is considered a biostimulating filler.

What's the difference between Sculptra and Radiesse filler?
Sculptra and Radiesse are both dermal fillers, but they work in different ways. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid-based filler that stimulates collagen production, while Radiesse is a calcium hydroxylapatite filler that provides instant volume and stimulates collagen growth as well. Sculptra offers more gradual, long-lasting results, whereas Radiesse provides immediate volume with results that typically last for about 12-18 months.

How Sculptra works
Sculptra is a unique dermal filler that works by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production to improve facial volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. As we age, our collagen production decreases, resulting in sagging skin and loss of volume. Sculptra, when expertly injected by our skilled providers at Glow Dermspa in Lakewood Ranch, helps to gradually restore lost volume and promote a more youthful appearance.
Composed of poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra is gradually absorbed by the body and replaced with new collagen. This process results in a natural-looking, long-lasting improvement in skin texture, fullness, and overall facial aesthetics. Sculptra is particularly effective for treating deep lines, hollows, and volume loss in the cheeks, temples, and chin area.
What to Expect
During your Sculptra appointment at Glow Dermspa, your provider will start by discussing your aesthetic concerns, goals, and treatment expectations. A thorough examination of your facial structure and skin condition will be conducted to determine the best approach for your unique needs.
Once a personalized treatment plan is established, your provider will cleanse and prepare the treatment area. A topical numbing agent may be applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Sculptra will then be carefully and precisely injected into the targeted areas, stimulating collagen production and providing gradual volume restoration.
After your Sculptra treatment, you can expect some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, which should resolve within a few days to a few weeks. You may be advised to massage the treated areas gently for several days to help distribute the product evenly. It’s important to avoid strenuous activities and excessive sun exposure for the first 24-48 hours following your treatment.
As Sculptra works gradually, you will notice improvements in your skin’s fullness and overall appearance over the weeks and months following your treatment. Optimal results are typically achieved after 2-3 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, providing long-lasting, natural-looking rejuvenation.
Sculptra Treatment Areas
Sculptra can be used as a non-surgical alternative to traditional Brazilian Butt Lift procedures. By stimulating collagen production in the buttocks, Sculptra can gradually improve the shape, contour, and fullness of the area without the need for surgery or fat transfer. Sculptra can bring overall lift, volume and fix “hip dips”.
However, HA fillers are another option that can be used for these treatment areas. The choice of treatment will depend on your individual needs and goals, so it’s important to work with a qualified provider who can assess your concerns, discuss the benefits and potential risks of each treatment, and help you make an informed decision.
