Sculptra Missoula is a cosmetic injection that adds volume underneath your skin. But instead of adding volume externally, it encourages your body to produce its natural filler — collagen. When injected into targeted facial tissues, Sculptra stimulates collagen production under your skin, leading to smooth, even-textured, and youthful skin. Sculptra reduces fine lines and wrinkles, enhances your facial contours, makes your cheeks look fuller, and reverses the signs of aging.

How Sculptra Works
Sculptra is made of poly-l-lactic acid, a naturally occurring gel that stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and youthful by holding them together. As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen is compromised, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. Sculptra encourages your body to produce collagen, thus reversing the effects of age. Over time, your facial skin looks fuller, smoother, and more youthful.

The Sculptra Treatment Process
Your Sculptra in Missoula treatment starts with a consultation with Francienne. She carefully studies your facial skin, identifies the potential treatment areas and concerns, reviews your health history, and asks about your goals/ expectations. Based on her evaluation, she identifies the ideal treatment areas and selects the appropriate units of Sculptra injections.
During Sculptra treatment, the cosmetic provider cleanses your facial skin and applies a numbing gel on your skin to ensure comfort. Finally, the appropriate units of Sculptra are carefully injected into targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles. The number of injections depends on your specific goals — the treatment concludes within 15 minutes.
Sculptra doesn’t involve harsh side effects or downtime. You may experience mild post-treatment redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and discomfort, but these side effects dissipate within a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work after the treatment, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two.
Your Sculptra Results
After your Sculptra in Missoula, your facial skin will look fuller and smoother around the treatment areas. But the true results appear gradually over several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers. The results continue improving for several weeks and last for 24 months or more.
Is Sculptra safe?
Sculptra was FDA-approved for facial volume restoration in 2004, following which it has been used on millions of patients across the globe. It’s a completely safe treatment.
When will I see the Sculptra results?
Sculptra results gradually improve over 3 to 4 months as your body produces collagen.
How long will the results last?
Sculptra results usually last 24 months, but some patients also notice improvements up to 5 years after the initial treatment.
How many Sculptra treatments do I need?
You may need 1 to 3 Sculptra treatments spaced one month apart for optimal results. But if you have severe facial volume loss, you may also need up to 6 Sculptra injections. Your cosmetic provider will curate the ideal Sculptra treatment plan and frequency for you.
Will my face look puffy, overfilled, or unnatural?
Sculptra works by stimulating your body’s innate collagen production capabilities. The poly-l-lactic acid molecules will soon get reabsorbed by the body, following which you will notice results based on natural collagen production. Since Sculptra works by triggering natural volume restoration, there’s no possibility of looking overfilled or unnatural.
