When you’re comparing fillers, Sculptra definitely stands out from the crowd. It lasts twice as long as options like Juvederm and Restylane and creates results gradually, making it an excellent choice for patients who prefer to keep anyone from noticing they’ve had work done.
If you’ve ever wondered why this filler is so different, you’re in good company — and we created this blog for you. Below, we’ll explain the differences between Sculptra and other popular fillers.
How Long Does Sculptra Last?
Sculptra can last more than 3 years, depending on the patient. However, many patients choose to get touch-ups done every year or two so they can maintain their full results.
One of the advantages of Sculptra is that other people are less likely to notice that you’ve had anything done. It creates results over time rather than causing an abrupt change in your appearance. Most patients see their full results a few weeks to months after treatment.
Why Sculptra is Different
Most of the popular fillers on the market are made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid fillers provide almost immediate results but typically begin dissolving after 6-9 months, leading to a need for more frequent touch-ups.
By contrast, Sculptra is made of a poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates collagen production. Rather than treating a single wrinkle or area, it restores the underlying structure of the face or buttocks over time. The final effect is rejuvenation throughout the area, skin tightening, and texture repair.
Butt Fillers: What to Expect
Sculptra is often used to change the shape of the buttocks. Since this is a non-surgical procedure, the risk of complications is low. The injections stimulate collagen production and cause the area to fill out over time in a way that looks natural.
Like other Sculptra treatments, the results of a Sculptra booty boost treatment do not occur all at once. Right after the treatment, you may look overfilled, but your body will quickly return to its pre-treatment appearance within 24 hours. Your final results will appear gradually over the next six to twelve weeks.
The cost of a Sculptra butt lift depends on how much volume you want to add. Treatments range between 6-10 vials and you can expect to have 2-3 treatments. Touch-ups cost significantly less since you will not need to use as many vials.
Sculptra Facial Fillers: What to Expect
Sculptra is often placed in the submalar region and temples to restore facial volume. Over time, it creates a collagen boost and results in more youthful contours. Since it creates rejuvenating results throughout the face, it’s often called a “liquid facelift.”
When you leave your treatment, you will likely look overfilled for a day due to the solution the poly-L-lactic acid is dissolved in. The next morning, you will look the way you did before treatment. Over the next six weeks, you will gradually see more volume appear and notice a reduction in wrinkles.
The cost of Sculptra facial fillers varies, but you can typically expect 2-3 vials per treatment and to receive 3 treatments.
