What Are Sculptra® Injections?

Sculptra® injections offer a minimally invasive solution to skin rejuvenation. Leveraging the skin's innate collagen-producing capabilities, Sculptra®, a synthetic dermal filler, helps revitalize your appearance, granting a youthful, natural glow without resorting to surgery. Its active ingredient, Poly-L-lactic acid, is safely metabolized by the body into carbon dioxide and lactic acid. Prepared as a powder, Sculptra® is mixed before application and then skillfully injected by our team beneath the skin's surface.

Your Sculptra® Consultation

When you enter our clinic, our friendly team will welcome you and take all the necessary time to discuss your individual journey. One of our licensed injectors, led by Dr. Dayan, will examine your skin, discuss your medical history, and answer any questions. This is our chance to get to know you and your treatment goals to develop a customized treatment plan.

How to Prepare for Your Sculptra® Injections

Getting ready for your Sculptra® injections is relatively straightforward and requires minimal preparation. Keeping the skin clean and avoiding excessive sun exposure are generally recommended, and scheduling your appointment for the end of the day or taking the day off work.

During Your Sculptra® Procedure

The day of your appointment is the day towards a new self. When you come to our Chicago clinic, we will apply a local anesthetic to numb and prevent any discomfort. Our specialist then injects the Sculptra® into the soft tissue where the desired effect is targeted. A typical treatment takes between 15 to 60 minutes.

Sculptra® Aftercare & Recovery Timeline

Sculptra® injections are minimally invasive; patients can return home immediately after treatment. While most people return to normal activities the following day, it’s crucial to understand that each individual’s healing journey is unique.

Our commitment to your comfort during recovery means taking a few simple precautions. Since local anesthetic and injections can lead to some swelling and bruising, we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and alcohol for a day. To facilitate the healing process, consider applying ice and gently massaging the treatment area up to five times daily.

Our post-care treatment guidance encompasses essential aspects, such as managing skin sensitivity, ensuring proper hygiene, and staying well-hydrated. We are here for you on every step of your healing journey and will address any issues immediately.

Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra® Injections?

If fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging bring discomfort and make you feel less than your best, you may be a great candidate for Sculptra® injections. Collaborating with your valuable input, our experienced team will decide if Sculptra® injections are the ideal choice for your unique needs and aspirations.

Sculptra® Benefits

Sculptra® is a synthetic material that stimulates the natural production of collagen in your skin, making it a great natural alternative to other fillers. Patience is a virtue, and results won’t happen overnight. As your body’s own collagen production is stimulated, fine lines, wrinkles, and our skin’s volume gradually change to a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. However, knowing that your body is regenerating from the inside out can boost your confidence and self-esteem from day one.
How much do Sculptra® injections cost in Chicago?
Customization is the key to getting your best results. Each individual has a unique soft tissue composition. Our specialists have extensive knowledge of Sculptra® injections and will offer a tailored approach during your consultation to give you a better idea of the costs involved.
How painful are Sculptra® injections?
Sculptra® injections are generally not painful. At Impressions Face + Body, we will apply local anesthesia to numb the injection site and ensure you’re as comfortable as possible before we start. Some individuals may experience mild discomfort following the injection, with slight swelling and redness, which can be alleviated by applying ice to the affected site.
Are there any Sculptra® risks?
Small bumps or irritations occur in a small subset of patients. These resolve on their own within a couple of days. Other possible side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, itching, and skin discoloration, although these tend to be rare.
How long do Sculptra® injections last?

The duration of Sculptra® injections can vary from person to person and depends on several factors. After a series of Sculptra® injections, you may notice improvements in the skin’s complexion, texture, and volume. Those results gradually become more apparent over 4 to 6 months and may last up to two years or longer.

Sculptra® is unique among fillers as it stimulates your body’s natural collagen production. It’s essential to understand that Sculptra® cannot stop the natural aging process, and collagen production will decline over time. Periodic touch-up treatments may be a great way to maintain the best long-lasting results, and our specialists can recommend appropriate treatment schedules based on your personal needs.

What procedures pair well with Sculptra® injections?
Botox® injections or skin tightening treatments like Morpheus8 can complement Sculptra® injections for an enhanced complexion.
What is Sculptra® made of?
Sculptra® is a synthetic material consisting of a sugar polymer called poly-L-lactic acid. This synthetic sugar is biocompatible and bioabsorbable, making it a safe material for use in medical applications.
