Sculptra

The Secret to Youthful Looking Skin

 

Sculptra is a unique treatment that works to restore your own skin’s inner structure for a more youthful looking appearance. It works with your body to revitalize collagen production to increase overall facial volume.

Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane, Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid that works deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s inner structure and restoring volume. Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time, and patients report improvement as long as 25 months after the last treatment.

Sculptra works best to add volume to cheek bones, temples, and to reduce lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Patients will also see amazing results with reducing acne scarring, cellulite around the buttocks and thighs and even provide lift to the buttock area. Typically patients will require an average of 3 treatments approximately one month apart to see optimal results, but you can see changes approximately 4 weeks after the first treatment.

 

 

A Typical Appointment

Patients must be healthy, with no history of autoimmune disorders for this treatment. Topical numbing cream will be applied to the area before treatment to optimize comfort. 1-3 vials of Sculptra will be injected per treatment depending on the area and volume loss that the patient is experiencing. Patients will typically see results immediately, but that will not last more than 3-4 days. Then over the next 4 weeks, collagen will start to grow and results will become more apparent. This treatment works subtly and gradually over time but provides beautiful, natural looking results! Retreatment is expected after 4-6 weeks depending on the patient.

Aftercare is extremely important for this treatment, patients will need to massage the area treated 5 times a day for 5 days after the injections. If you do not massage, the treatment will look unnatural.
