Sculptra is a unique form of injectable filler, which Premier Aesthetics has many years of experience using as a leading Grand Forks med spa.
Sculptra consists of microscopic particles that are dissolved in water and injected under the skin. These microscopic particles are essentially micro-irritants, to which to body reacts by forming new collagen, and this creates volume and thickening of the tissues. Sculptra can often serve as an excellent foundation, particularly in the midface.
WHAT IS SCULPTRA?
While the most common dermal fillers out there are made from either hyaluronic acid or collagen, Sculptra is a little different. Sculptra is made from Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA). Never heard of this before? It’s basically a synthetic form of natural lactic acid, which is something that your body produces whenever it has been physically exerted. Being completely synthetic, Sculptra does not contain any animal products or by-products, making it vegan-friendly too.
HOW DOES SCULPTRA WORK?
Sculptra stimulates your skin into producing more and more collagen. This gives you a more gradual result, as the smoothness and volume only become visible once your skin has built this extra collagen.
Collagen is one of the main structural proteins that give your skin its firmness and smoothness. While your skin does produce collagen on its own, the amount of collagen that it produces declines quite rapidly with age. In fact, once you reach your mid-20’s, the amount of collagen your skin produces drops by about 1.5% each year.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE THE RESULTS OF SCULPTRA?
It usually takes between three to four months. This is also how long it takes for your skin to naturally build up new collagen. Because Sculptra is designed to bring about long-term effects, you will usually need more than one treatment.
The number of treatments varies depending on your own individual circumstances, from the area of skin being treated to your age, weight, and activity levels.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sculptra
Which areas does Sculptra treat?
How many Sculptra treatments are required?
When will I see the results from my Sculptra treatment?
Sculptra is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually and can last more than two years. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results! A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. Sculptra delivers its full effects with an average of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months. Because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle, yet noticeable, results in the reduction of facial wrinkles and folds by comparing images before treatment and a couple months following treatment.
