New Kid on the Block: Sculptra

20 February, 2023

As one of the premier medispas in Calgary, Alberta, we're always on the lookout for the latest and greatest anti-aging treatments. That's why we're excited to offer Sculptra, the new buzzword in the world of cosmetic treatments. Sculptra is an excellent option for anyone looking to achieve a more youthful, vibrant appearance without the downtime and maintenance required by traditional fillers. In this blog post, we'll explore why Sculptra may be a better option than dermal fillers for some patients.

First, let's start with what Sculptra is and how it works. Sculptra is an injectable treatment that stimulates your body's natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps keep your skin looking firm, plump, and youthful. As we age, our natural collagen production decreases, which can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

Sculptra works by injecting tiny particles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) into the skin. These particles stimulate your body's natural collagen production, which can help improve the texture, tone, and quality of your skin over time. Sculptra is typically administered over a series of treatments, with most patients seeing optimal results after three to four treatments.

Now, let's explore why Sculptra may be a better option than traditional dermal fillers for some patients.

Long-Lasting Results

One of the biggest benefits of Sculptra is that the results can last up to two years. This is much longer than traditional dermal fillers, which typically last six months to a year. This means that you can enjoy your results for longer without having to come in for maintenance treatments as frequently.

Natural-Looking Results

Another benefit of Sculptra is that the results are subtle and natural-looking. Because Sculptra stimulates your body's natural collagen production, the results develop gradually over time. This means that you won't suddenly look like you've had work done. Instead, you'll notice a gradual improvement in your skin texture and quality that looks natural and youthful.


Sculptra is a versatile treatment that can be used to address a range of anti-aging concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. This makes it a great option for anyone looking to address multiple concerns with a single treatment.

Minimal Downtime

Sculptra requires minimal downtime, which means that you can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment. You may experience some mild swelling or redness, but this should subside within a few days. This is in contrast to traditional dermal fillers, which can cause more significant swelling and bruising that may require several days of downtime.

At our medispa in Calgary, Alberta, we're proud to offer Sculptra as one of our top anti-aging treatments. We believe that Sculptra is a fantastic option for anyone looking to achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results that can help them feel more confident and youthful.
