What is Sculptra?
Are you looking for ways to restore your youth and reduce facial lines? Fine lines and creases are caused by different factors like age and genetics. Fortunately, there are ways to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer noninvasive treatments like Sculptra that are longest-lasting, effective, and safe.
Sculptra is a facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps replace lost collagen. This is a progressive filler that gradually corrects shallow to deep wrinkles and folds. To learn more about Sculptra and how treatment produces smoother skin, call our office in Puyallup, WA. We're proud to help patients with a wide range of cosmetic concerns.
Who is a candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra focuses on the underlying causes of facial aging. The best candidates for injectables are in generally good health and have reasonable expectations about results. Sculptra is biocompatible, which means treatment does not require allergy testing beforehand. Our specialists at Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics can help you restore your confidence and natural-looking skin. Some of the most common benefits of Sculptra include:
- Long-lasting results that can last more than two years
- No incisions or surgery required
- Safe and noninvasive treatment
What to expect during sculptra treatment
Our providers develop a custom plan for each Sculptra patient to deliver the best results. Sessions may not last more than an hour, depending on the number of treated areas involved. Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics uses a very thin needle to administer Sculptra into specific areas with minimal discomfort. We make sure that your treatment proceeds painlessly with a numbing agent. Most patients will have a series of treatments in Puyallup, WA, to achieve optimal outcomes.
How long is recovery after Sculptra?
Sculptra is slightly different from other injectable products because it gradually corrects facial wrinkles over time. The overall effect can last for more than two years, but this timeline will vary based on each patient and their anti-aging concerns. It's important to discuss the expected results with a member of our aesthetic team.
Our patients have reported minimal to no side effects with Sculptra. However, some individuals may experience injection-related side effects, such as redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, or bleeding. Please note that these are common and are generally resolved within a few hours to days following treatment.
What is Sculptra made of?
The main ingredient of Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, which is biocompatible and biodegradable. The sugar-like synthetic material in Sculptra has been successfully used by cosmetic professionals for years. While patients in Puyallup who receive Sculptra are monitored closely, they should not expect any adverse reactions to treatment.
How do I prepare for Sculptra?
Patients should not take anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, aspirin, Naproxen, Aleve, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, or fish oil for at least a few days before Sculptra injections. Please inform us about any allergies or current medical conditions that may interfere with your treatment or results. We recommend scheduling Sculptra injections at least two weeks before any important events.
How do I take care of my skin after Sculptra?
Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics can provide easy post-care instructions after Sculptra treatment, including:
- Massage the treated areas about five times each day
- Use ice packs on the treated areas gently for 3 - 5 minutes a few times a day
- Avoid getting a facial massage for two weeks after treatment
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours

"I had sculptra done on my face about two weeks ago. I am very impressed with the outcome and highly recommend this procedure. My husband has actually noticed a difference in my skin texture and how youthful and glowing it looks. I love how kind everyone is every time I call or go in to the office."- C.M. / Facebook / Mar 19, 2017
