Benefits of Sculptra Injections


Sculptra injections are a cosmetic treatment using poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to stimulate collagen production, reduce fine lines, improve skin firmness, and restore volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Sculptra works by injecting poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) into the deep dermis. Once injected, PLLA particles stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, gradually restoring facial volume and improving skin firmness. This process smooths wrinkles and enhances skin texture.

The treatment involves a series of injections over a few months, allowing the collagen to build up naturally. Results appear gradually, offering a subtle and natural-looking enhancement. Sculptra provides long-lasting rejuvenation, typically maintaining results for up to two years.

Sculptra is ideal for individuals seeking a non-surgical solution to address signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. It’s suitable for those who want a gradual, natural-looking enhancement rather than immediate, dramatic changes.
This treatment is also beneficial for people looking to improve skin texture and firmness, including the reduction of acne scars and the appearance of cellulite. Sculptra is perfect for those with busy lifestyles, as it requires minimal downtime and offers long-lasting results.

What to Expect With Sculptra

For the best results and to reduce the chance of any side effects after your treatment, our experts at the Med Lounge in Orange County have a few tips around what to expect with Sculptra before and after your procedure.

  • Stay hydrated! Aim for at least 64 oz of water daily.
  • Boost your immune system with 2000 mg of Vitamin C every day. Starting early is key!
  • Ease any potential bruising with Arnica: dissolve 5 pellets under your tongue, 3 times daily, starting 3 days before your treatment.
  • For optimal results, avoid Omega 3s, Turmeric, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, Garlic Supplements, and Aspirin for 7 days prior.
  • Skip alcoholic beverages, including red wine, for 4 days before your appointment.
  • Minimize irritation by pausing Retinol and exfoliating acids 3 days before and after your treatment. Your skin will thank you!
  • Keep your head elevated above your heart for 4 hours after treatment.
  • Gently massage treated areas with upward strokes for 5 minutes, 5 times daily, for 5 days. This helps achieve optimal results and reduces potential side effects.
  • Apply a cool compress to injection sites for up to 48 hours to ease any discomfort.
  • Avoid prolonged sun or heat exposure for 24 hours.
  • Refrain from vigorous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Steer clear of saunas for 6 hours.
  • If you experience swelling, consider using Arnica cream/gel or taking oral Arnica to promote faster healing.
  • For bruising, apply Alastin INhance serum four times daily or take Bromelain 200 mg to accelerate recovery. These steps ensure you get the most out of your Sculptra treatment.

Safety Information

Indication: Sculptra® (injectable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA-SCA)) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies, fine lines and wrinkles in the cheek region, and other facial wrinkles.

Sculptra should not be used by people that are allergic to any ingredient of the product or have a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring. Safety has not been established in patients who are pregnant, lactating, breastfeeding, or under 18 years of age.

Sculptra has unique injection requirements and should only be used by a trained healthcare practitioner. Contour deficiencies should not be overcorrected because they are expected to gradually improve after treatment.

Sculptra should not be injected into the blood vessels as it may cause vascular occlusion, infarction or embolic phenomena. Use at the site of skin sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. Sculptra should not be injected into the red area (vermillion) of the lip or in the peri-orbital area.

The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported.
