Sculptra® Aesthetic (poly-L-lactic acid) is an injectable filler that stimulates collagen production, making it an excellent treatment for smile lines, contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles.
If you’re looking for long-lasting results in facial contouring, facial augmentation, or wrinkle correction, you’re probably a good candidate for Sculptra.
Sculptra is an ideal treatment for treating:
If you currently have an active skin infection, or if you’ve previously had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in Sculptra, you may not be a good candidate. The best candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations.
Sculptra differs from other facial fillers because it works gradually and can last up to two years. The result is a more youthful looking appearance without looking like you’ve had cosmetic surgery. Sculptra has been shown to provide up to 80 percent improvement in treated areas.
One of the key advantages of Sculptra is that treatment can be completed in less than an hour. Prior to injection, your face will be cleansed with an antiseptic. Using a thin needle, we will carefully inject Sculptra into pre-determined treatment sites. The treatment sites will then be gently massaged to promote smooth and even results.
Once injected, Sculptra works to correct collagen production beneath the surface of the skin. Final results are achieved across a series of treatments. Most patients require 2-4 treatment sessions performed in 3-6 week intervals to achieve the best results.
Sculptra is a quick outpatient procedure that does not require any downtime. An ice pack can minimize swelling after treatment, but you should otherwise be able to resume normal activities right away. Your skin will be sensitive, so you should avoid direct sun exposure for the first couple of days.
You will notice some immediate improvements after your first treatment, but final results will appear gradually and over the course of several sessions. Final results can last for up to two years. Maintenance treatments will be necessary to prolong your results.
