Sculptra’s exceptional versatility allows us to address a wide range of concerns for our clients, from facial volume loss to wrinkles to contouring. Our experienced team at PURE understands the intricacies of Sculptra and its versatility for other non-surgical enhancements you might not expect!


What Is Sculptra And How Does It Work?

Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible and biodegradable substance. It is primarily used for facial rejuvenation and addressing signs of aging. Unlike other dermal fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production over time.

When Sculptra is injected into the skin, it acts as a bioactivator, triggering the body’s natural healing response. The PLLA particles in Sculptra stimulate the production of new collagen, which helps restore volume, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds.

The treatment process typically involves multiple sessions spread out over a few months to achieve the desired results. This allows the gradual development of collagen and natural-looking improvements. The number of sessions required may vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and goals, and the area(s) being treated.

As the newly formed collagen integrates with the existing collagen fibers in the skin, the effects of Sculptra become noticeable. The treated areas appear smoother, firmer, and more youthful over time. Results can last up to two years, although individual variations and lifestyle factors may affect the longevity of the outcomes.


What The Versatility of Sculptra Can Do For You

For most people, by the time they reach age 45, they have already lost about 25% of their collagen supply. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines become more prominent, not only on the face, but also on the knees, elbows and chest.

Thanks to the versatility of Sculptra, at PURE we use it to restore your collagen framework for a more youthful appearance from head to toe. In fact, we specialize in cosmetic injections, and all of our injectors are trained by our in-house expert, Julie Acarregui—the #1 Sculptra injector in Idaho and Montana. We are proud to train aesthetic professionals around the country how to inject Sculptra and the amazing results that can be achieved with this versatile filler.

For cosmetic concerns like sagging knees, elbows, chest and décolleté, Sculptra injections can help stimulate collagen production, leading to a tightening and lifting effect. By adding volume and improving skin quality, it may enhance the appearance of these areas.

For buttock enhancement,  Sculptra injections provide a subtle volumizing effect that can lift and tone the skin, enhancing the shape you desire.

  • Facial Volume Loss – Sculptra can restore volume and fullness to areas of the face that have experienced volume loss like the cheeks, temples and under-eye hollows.
  • Marionette Lines – Sculptra can soften and diminish the appearance of the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin, known as marionette lines.
  • Nasolabial Folds – Sculptra can help reduce the prominence of the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth, known as nasolabial folds.
  • Temple Volume Loss – Sculptra can replenish lost volume in the temples, which can hollow with age, providing a more youthful appearance.
  • Cheeks – Sculptra can enhance cheek volume and improve overall facial contour for a lifted and more youthful look with long-lasting, natural results.
  • Smile Lines – Sculptra injections can minimize the appearance of smile lines or “parentheses lines” around the mouth, helping to achieve a smoother and rejuvenated appearance.
  • Jawline – Sculptra can provide subtle reshaping and contouring along the jawline, improving definition and symmetry.
  • Décolletage – Sculptra can rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin on the chest and décolletage, reducing wrinkles and creases caused by aging or sun damage.
  • Knees & Elbows – Sculptra injections can be used to address sagging skin and improve the appearance of the knees and elbows.
  • Abdomen – Sculptra can be used to improve the appearance of the abdomen by reducing the appearance of crepey skin and promoting a more toned and youthful look.
  • Cellulite – Sculptra injections can help to improve the appearance of cellulite, reducing its visibility and creating a smoother skin texture.
  • Booty Enhancement – Sculptra can be used for non-surgical booty enhancement, providing subtle volume and lift to achieve a more sculpted appearance.



How Is Sculptra Different Than Other Fillers?

Sculptra is different from other dermal fillers in a couple of ways. First, its main active ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid rather than hyaluronic acid. Although hyaluronic acid may also promote collagen production, PLLA is a clinically proven collagen stimulator. Second, Sculptra can last up to 2 years, whereas dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane last for about a year.


How Long Will It Take To See Results?

You will notice your Sculptra results throughout the following weeks and months after your injections. If you appear the same directly after your treatment, do not get discouraged. Sculptra does not provide immediate results like dermal fillers; however, the long-term benefits are well worth the wait.


How Many Sessions of Sculptra Will I Need?

The number of Sculptra sessions required can vary depending on individual factors, such as the desired outcome, the severity of concerns and the individual’s response to the treatment. In general, a series of multiple sessions is typically recommended to achieve optimal results with Sculptra.

On average, most patients undergo three to four treatment sessions, spaced about four to six weeks apart. This interval allows for sufficient collagen stimulation and gradual improvement in the treated areas.
