Is Sculptra a Liquid Facelift? How Long Does It Last?

Cosmetic injectables have transformed the landscape of anti-aging skincare. Dermal fillers make it possible to turn back the clock by addressing volume loss, smoothing out deep folds, and adding contour and definition where needed. Sculptra is the injectable of choice for many dermatologists when it comes to full facial rejuvenation.

In our practice at Dallas Dermatology Partners, Sculptra has been dubbed the liquid facelift because it does something other fillers don’t– triggers the body’s own collagen synthesis. This is important if you’re over 30 because collagen levels decline every year. It provides the structural framework beneath the skin and keeps us looking youthful and fresh.

Does Sculptra Lift the face?

Yes, Sculptra lifts the face by replenishing volume and kick-starting collagen production for supple and elastic skin. Each Sculptra treatment is designed to correct deep facial folds, wrinkles, creases, and sagging contours. Does a Sculptra facelift offer comparable results to a surgical facelift? Not exactly. The two procedures address different concerns.

A surgical facelift removes excess skin but does not restore volume to the nasolabial folds, temples, cheeks, or tear troughs. Sculptra does not correct skin laxity. Instead, it gives natural-looking volume where fat has been lost. In addition, it has the added bonus of improving skin texture and fine lines, unlike a surgical facelift.

Although there is a small degree of residual plumping after Sculptra injections, major improvements become visible over the following months– as collagen levels gradually increase. Most patients see full results within 6 months of their initial Sculptra facelift.

Sculptra Liquid Facelift

Sculptra for face lifting generally takes 30-45 minutes, depending on the areas of skin being injected and the desired outcome.

The induction of collagen production delivers outstanding results for:

  • Adding contours to a sagging jawline
  • Addressing concave temples
  • Volumizing hollows in the tear troughs
  • Lifting and enhancing the cheeks
  • Correcting marionette lines and deep folds
  • Smoothing fine wrinkles
  • Improving skin texture

How Long Does a Liquid Facelift Last?

Sculptra really shines in longevity. A sculptra liquid facelift can last more than two years, which is considerably longer than most hyaluronic acid-based fillers.

Since it activates collagen production over time, this injectable adds youthful volume in a subtle way and doesn’t look overdone. Patients can expect natural, beautiful, and long-lasting results.

Complementary Rejuvenating Treatments

Sculptra may be combined with other minimally invasive rejuvenating treatments, such as Botox injections or RF microneedling to deliver maximum improvements without the risks or expense of a surgical facelift.
