What is Sculptra Dermal Filler Used For & What are Side Effects?

May 1, 2018

What is Sculptra made of?

Sculptra is made of a safe biocompatible material called poly-L-lactic acid. Indicated for restoring volume loss caused by ageing or medical conditions such as HIV, this injectable has become extremely popular.

What is this dermal filler used for?

Sculptra is injected into the skin, so it can enhance the collagen production which helps in restoring volume in areas like the cheeks. Sculptra’s plumping result can last more than 2 years. It is also biocompatible and will be resorbed by the tissues over time. By injecting this filler, you can reduce wrinkles and folds, as well as scars and volume loss. Sculptra helps patients regain their youthful appearance. Sculptra should be injected into the subcutaneous layer or deep dermis using a 26G needle. The injection technique and amount used will depend on the area and condition being treated. Do not overcorrect.

Sculptra Side Effects

  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Pain
  • Mild bleeding at the site of injection.

However, these reactions occur due to the injection itself, and resolve within a few days. On average, side effects last from 2 to 6 days. Other side effects include mild inflammation. You can reduce rare adverse reactions by reviewing your patient’s medical history.

A patient should be aware of the injection process and risks, so discussing the procedure with them prior to treatment is essential. Sculptra offers a long-term solution to your patient’s cosmetic needs. Do not inject superficially to avoid the risk of papules or nodules at the site of injection. Do not inject if the area has an infection or is inflamed. As well, do not use in patients with an allergy to any of the components of this filler. This injectable should only be administered by a legally licensed injector.
