How Long Does Sculptra Aesthetic Last?

Facial filler treatment

Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) filler used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dimples, and other signs of aging. It works by stimulating the body’s production of collagen to help restore volume in areas where it’s been lost. At Beaute Therapies Medical Spa in West Palm Beach, we offer PLLA treatments to help you look and feel your best.

How Long Does It Last? 

PLLA is a long-lasting filler, with results lasting up to two years. Because PLLA works gradually and stimulates the body’s production of collagen, results appear gradually and can last longer than other types of injectables.

What to Expect

Before the procedure, we recommend that you take ibuprofen or acetaminophen to reduce any possible discomfort. During the procedure, we inject PLLA into targeted areas of your face. We can also treat multiple areas of the face in one visit. You may experience some redness and swelling for a few days after the treatment, but this should go away within a few days.

After the procedure, you should expect to see results in two to three weeks as your body responds to the treatment and begins producing more collagen. Your results should last up to two years, but individual responses may vary.

What You Need to Know Before Choosing Sculptra Aesthetic

  • A poly-L-lactic acid facial is not intended to be used as a one-time treatment. Multiple injections over several sessions are required to achieve desired results.
  • Results appear gradually and can take up to six weeks after the treatment.
  • Results vary from person to person, depending on the severity of wrinkles or folds and other factors such as lifestyle habits and genetics.
  • As with any injectable treatment, there is a risk of side effects such as bruising and swelling at the injection site; these symptoms should resolve within a few days.
