How is Sculptra Different from Other Fillers?

Apr '23

Whether you’re banishing dimples on your buttocks in time for swimsuit season or simply want to break up with facial wrinkles, Sculptra can be an effective solution for achieving your beauty goals. But what applications does it have? And what makes it different from the other injectables we offer here at Westchester’s best SkinCenter? Here are some answers to your questions to help you decide if Sculptra is right for you.

What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved poly-L-lactic acid injectable that works slowly and gradually to jumpstart your body’s regenerative process. While it often falls under the “filler” category, it’s actually a biostimulator. Instead of treating skin at the surface by filling in wrinkles and hollows, it works at a deeper level. Sculptra triggers your body’s natural collagen production to gradually bring about younger-looking skin.

The #1 application of Sculptra is facial wrinkles. Though, some of our clients opt for Sculptra to combat chest wrinkles or achieve a subtle butt lift.

What Does a Sculptra Regimen Look Like?

Each session of Sculptra can range from 15 minutes to 40 minutes depending on the surface area you’re targeting. It’s normal for our patients to undergo a series of three to six sessions spaced four to six weeks apart for best results. But our doctors and aesthetic nurse specialist will go over your custom treatment plan during your consultation.

What Are Sculptra’s Advantages Over Other Injectables?

One of the clearest benefits Sculptra offers that other injectables can’t is long-lasting results. Whereas some fillers will improve your skin’s appearance for six months to a year, Sculptra results typically last up to two years. After this milestone, we recommend scheduling a touch-up session at SkinCenter.

Another perk of Sculptra is that your body will naturally absorb it during the months after treatment. That’s because it’s made from poly-L-lactic acid, the same substance used in dissolvable sutures
