As we age, not only do we produce less collagen, but our existing collagen is weakened as well. This process degrades the underlying structure of the face, causing skin to sag from its original position.
Sculptra is a facial injectable that works by boosting the body’s production of new collagen. It is an ideal choice for patients who want a more natural, gradual, minimally invasive approach to fighting the visible signs of facial aging.
Sculptra is made from Poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. It is biodegradable, which means it will naturally be broken down by the body after it has served its purpose, and bio-compatible, so your the body will not reject it. Sculptra is highly effective when used for increasing volume in depressed skin areas such as the temples, smile lines, marionette lines (lines framing the mouth), and chin wrinkles.
Results from a Sculptra treatment are gradual and can last for over 2 years. Over the course of a few weeks after treatment, patients begin to see an enhancement in facial volume and skin thickness. A typical Sculptra treatment is about three injection sessions over a few months. Your Injectable Specialist will work with you to determine how much and where exactly Sculptra will provide the maximal results.
During treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied for comfort. Patients sometimes experience a few mild side effects such as swelling, soreness, or redness at the injection sites, but usually return to their daily activities immediately after treatment. Sculptra can be used alone or in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as Botox or dermal fillers. We will be happy to explain your options during your complimentary consultation and put together a treatment plan that helps you achieve your goals.
