Frequently Asked Questions
Available in Europe since 1999, and FDA approved for aesthetic uses in 2014, Sculptra® is an injectable cosmetic treatment used to restore facial volume lost due to aging or illness, as well as to decrease the look of shallow to deep smile (nasolabial) lines. Sculptra’s active ingredient, polylactic acid, stimulates collagen production.
Your Sculptra® treatment at our Naples-based medical spa begins with a review of your medical history, a mapping of the injection sites, and facial cleansing. Once this is complete, our specialists will inject the skin as planned in a process that takes less than 20 minutes.
Patients are free to leave immediately after the procedure, should experience minimal downtime, and can typically resume their normal activities shortly after the treatment.
Considered safe for qualifying patients (those without specific allergies or autoimmune diseases), the treatment may cause temporary swelling, redness, pain, and bruising at injection sites, as well as headaches during the 24-hour period following treatment.
Full benefits are generally noticed a few months after the treatment due to the delayed impact of enhanced collagen production. Sculptra’s® natural-looking results generally remain active for up to two years.
