Are you considering undergoing a Sculptra aesthetic treatment to improve the look of your face? It’s understandable that you want to make sure this is a good long-term investment. But how long does Sculptra last?
Sculptra is an injectable filler used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines as well as add volume to areas needing contouring. Many patients are curious about what kind of time commitment they can expect from undergoing this type of treatment.
At Chin Up Aesthetics, we understand that longevity matters when it comes to investing in any kind of facial treatment. In this article, we discuss how long Sculptra typically lasts after it’s been injected into the skin so you can decide if this is the right choice for you.
Introduction to Sculptra & How it Works
Sculptra is an injectable filler used to reduce face wrinkles and fine lines as well as add volume to areas needing contouring. It works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, which helps to fill in wrinkles and create a more youthful appearance. The active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biodegradable synthetic material that is gradually absorbed by the body.
How Long Does Sculptra Last?
On average, Sculptra can last up to two years after the initial treatment. However, some patients may see results for up to five years. The longevity of Sculptra depends on a variety of factors, including the patient’s age, lifestyle habits, and how quickly their body metabolizes the product. Additionally, the number of treatments and the amount of product used will also affect how long Sculptra lasts.
Adding Volume After Initial Treatment
After the initial treatment, some patients may need to add additional volume to maintain their desired results. This can be done by having follow-up treatments with Sculptra every 6-12 months. During these treatments, your doctor will inject more of the product into the areas that need additional volume or contouring. This helps to ensure that you maintain a natural and youthful look for as long as possible.
In addition, it is important to note that Sculptra does not provide immediate results. It can take up to six weeks for the product to fully settle and for you to see the full effects of your treatment.
Additional Tips to Extend the Longevity of Your Sculptra Results
To ensure that you get the most out of your Sculptra treatment, it’s important to follow these recommendations.
Follow up treatments
After initially completing your Sculptra treatment, seeking follow-up treatments can help extend and maintain your desired results. Speak to your healthcare provider about the best timeline for scheduling future appointments according to your age, skin type, and body type.
Stay hydrated with water
Drinking plenty of water will not only contribute to overall healthy skin, but it also helps maintain the volume under the skin resulting from the Sculptra injections. Aim for at least 64 ounces of water per day (or half a gallon).
Limit Sun Exposure Before and After Treatment
The sun can cause your Sculptra results to fade more quickly by breaking down collagen faster, so try limiting direct sun exposure or wearing sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher before and after treatment sessions.
Take Dietary Supplements that Promote Collagen Production
If you’re looking to increase collagen production beyond what is produced by Sculptra injections, you may consider taking dietary supplements such as biotin or fish oil that have been known to promote collagen production in combination with other topical products or treatments.
Regularly moisturize your face
Moisturizers help keep skin firm and hydrated since hydrating ingredients act like sponges around the face, helping the product stay put longer. Use items that are specifically tailored for the nose (nose bridge) and chin area, where most people notice unwanted wrinkles due to aging and sun exposure e allow moisture to penetrate deeper into the skin while increasing elasticity as well as locking in moisture which allows injectables like Sculptra last much longer without losing volume or wrinkling of facial muscles.
