Are you struggling with facial lines or volume loss that make your complexion appear older than it really is? Have you tried high-end skin care products, only to be left less than impressed? Unfortunately, despite the most diligent of skin care routines, aging eventually wins out — but only if you let it.


At Arijai Aesthetics, it’s our goal to help you turn back the clock on aging skin, so you can enjoy a youthful, glowing complexion, no matter your age. One of the most rejuvenating, long-lasting treatments we offer for facial volume loss is a dermal filler known as Sculptra. Today, we’re delving into the details about how this revolutionary filler can transform the appearance of your skin.  


What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a unique cosmetic injectable that offers tangible benefits over many of the most popular dermal fillers on the market today. While the majority of fillers utilize hyaluronic acid to create additional volume beneath the skin, Sculptra employs something far more effective: poly-L-lactic acid.


Why is poly-L-lactic acid so beneficial? Because the compound literally stimulates your skin to boost collagen production. Rather than delivering a temporary, hyaluronic-acid-based volume infusion, Sculptra helps your skin re-establish healthier collagen levels over time. And because collagen is the protein responsible for maintaining your skin’s structure and fullness, the more collagen your skin has, the more vibrant it appears.


How Long Does Sculptra Last?

Because Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, its effects are more long-lasting than other dermal fillers. Over a period of four to six weeks, your body gradually metabolizes the compound into carbon dioxide and water. However, the duration of the compound’s action is approximately 12 to 24 months.


While individual results inevitably vary, according to Sculptra’s clinical trials, 80% of patients who received the treatment were still satisfied with their results at the 25-month mark!


How Many Sculptra Treatments Are Necessary for Optimal Results?

For the majority of patients, the Sculptra process involves a series of injection appointments over the course of three to four months. Most patients begin noticing significant improvements around the 90-day mark, and they sustain those results over a period of approximately two years. Many patients also opt to have annual treatments after the two-year mark to continue the collagen-building process.
