What is Sculptra-A Brief Overview?
Sculptra is a non-invasive injectable skin rejuvenation procedure to treat fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, aging, skin texture, firmness, and radiance of the skin. This FDA-approved medical treatment also encourages new collagen production and restores the cheeky plumpness of your skin. Collagen is the most important factor for making your skin look younger, brighter, and radiant. As you age, the collagen production in your body decreases, leading to several skin-related issues.
It is important to note Sculptra itself doesn't provide the filling treatment; rather, it causes a chemical reaction in your body that encourages new collagen production. The newly created collagen-enrich tissues help correct deep facial wrinkles resulting in tighter and smoother skin.
Sculptra is also recommended if you want to reduce premature aging or improve the appearance of Nasolabial Folds. Our providers at J'adore Beauty and Aesthetics recommend getting at least three or four Sculptra sessions over several months to get your desired results. It takes about 10 weeks to see visible signs of sculptra to start working. This is because it is a progressive change. What you see immediately is the water that is reconstituted with the sculptra. Your body will absorb that water and what will be left behind is PLLA. The biodegradable molecule (Poly-L-Lactic acid), which is inside of Sculptra, and that’s what stimulates your body to start reproducing collagen and elastin. Our collagen production slows down by 2% in your 20s so this is a great treatment for younger and older clients. Typically patients need more than one vial if they have significant signs of aging, volume loss or the integrity of their skin has gone down.
Is It Safe to Undergo Sculptra Treatment?
Yes, Sculptra is FDA approved and completely safe. It includes a biodegradable Poly-L-Lactic molecule with no significant side effects. Our expert providers at J’adore Beauty and Aesthetics use effective numbing agents to numb the treatment area.
They suggest specific instructions to follow during treatment to make the Sculptra procedure risk-free and minimize bruising. For instance;
- Avoid any anti-inflammatory medication before the treatment
- Don’t take an Omega-3 supplement for at least a week before your treatment

What should I expect after getting Sculptra?
While Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure there are a few things you must expect after having a Sculptra treatment. In terms of side effects, you must know that the most common side effects may include bruising, minimal pain, itching, heat sensations, swelling, and redness for the next 2-20 days on average. Before taking the treatment we also suggest our clients avoid taking a few medications such as anti-inflammatory medications, Omega-3 supplements, and Vitamin E to minimize the chances of bruising.
As a result of the successful Sculptra injections procedure, you can expect a more rejuvenated, smooth, firmer, and youthful skin back!
Is Sculptra Safe?
At J’adore the Sculptra treatment is performed by individuals who are certified and have had expertise in providing the most comfortable Sculptra treatment. Sculptra is constituted of poly-L-Lactic acid which is a bio-degradable substance that gets absorbed by the skin with passing time. Hence, there are very minimal to no side effects of the injectable persisting in the skin.
How long does it last?
The duration of sessions and how many sessions a person requires may vary from person to person and at J’adore, the best Sculptra clinic in Orlando, Florida we determine the number of sessions a person requires during the first appointment session with our doctor.
Ideally, someone old or thin, or someone who exercises extensively may require more sessions of Sculptra injections rather than the people who are in their middle age and are healthy. A person taking Sculptra is required to take at least three sessions over several months.
How long a Sculptra injection lasts also varies from person to person however, generally the injections usually get absorbed by the skin within 1-2 days. The after-effects of your collagen production can last up to 3 years but this does vary on the patient.
