What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable treatment used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to smoothing facial skin, Sculptra helps the body increase its collagen production.

What are the Benefits of Sculptra?

For anyone looking to improve the overall health and appearance of their skin, Sculptra offers the following benefits:

  • Smoother, more youthful-looking skin
  • Reduced facial lines, folds, and creases
  • Increased collagen production
  • Long-lasting results
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Increased facial volume
  • More balanced facial features

    How Does Sculptra Work?

    Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable made of poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable polymer that stimulates collagen production. Collagen is an essential protein that improves your skin's overall health and complexion. By increasing your body’s production of this protein, Sculptra helps keep your skin wrinkle-free for a very long time—treatment with Sculptra results in natural-looking volume and healthy, glowing skin.

    What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

    If you’d like to try Sculptra treatment, you should first schedule a consultation with one of our providers at Mangat Copit Plastic Surgery. They will discuss your aesthetic goals and help you decide if Sculptra is your ideal treatment. Your provider will also need to know about any medications you’re taking and allergies you have.

    At Mangat Copit, Sculptra in Breckenridge & Vail Valley will be administered as an outpatient procedure, and your provider will begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the target areas. Then, they will use a fine needle to inject the Sculptra into the skin. Overall, the entire process will only take around 1 hour to complete.

      Am I a Candidate for Sculptra?

      Adults looking for a long-lasting wrinkle treatment may be good candidates for Sculptra. You could be an ideal candidate if you meet these requirements:

      • Have facial lines, folds, or creases that you’d like improved
      • Have the desire to increase your facial volume
      • Be in generally good physical health
      • Have reasonable expectations
      • Have no active skin infections near the treatment areas
      • Be free of active autoimmune disease
      • Not being pregnant or nursing

      How Long Is the Recovery Time?

      One nice thing about Sculptra treatment is that there’s virtually no recovery downtime required. Side effects such as bruising and swelling may occur. You should avoid strenuous physical activity for one day, but otherwise, you can resume your normal routine right away.

      We are located in Avon and serve patients who live in Breckenridge, & the Vail Valley.

      How Long Will It Take To See Results After Sculptra Treatment?

      Since Sculptra stimulates your body’s collagen production, it takes 4-6 weeks to see the results of your treatment. Some patients see significant results after only one treatment, but the typical Sculptra regimen consists of three sessions over three or four months. After you’ve finished your treatments, the results can last up to two years, but it is recommended that you maintain your results with a yearly touch-up treatment.
