Sculptra is the only FDA approved dermal filler in the US whose primary method of action is to help the body develop it’s own collagen. In contrast to other dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and Radiesse, Sculptra relies on a poly-L-lactic acid ingredient that has been used in dissolvable stitches for over 20 years. This ingredient, when injected deep into the skin, helps add facial volume that has been lost with the normal aging process.
According to the Sculptra’s manufacturer, the average person can lose up to 1 teaspoon of collagen from the face every year. This is one of the reasons why the facial structure (cheeks and jowls) moves downward with age. So, rather than adding volume under the lines and folds - like other dermal fillers - Sculptra works by creating an artificial framework upon which the body can build it’s own collagen.
Because the byproduct of Sculptra injections is the body’s own collagen, it is one of the longest lasting injection products and results can be seen for up to two years. Swelling is normal after Sculptra injections as the key ingredient is mixed with a saline solution for easy injection. Another side effect is bruising and a very rare side effect includes granuloma formation.
