THE INJECTABLE MADE TO MAKE MORE YOU
HOW SCULPTRA WORKS
A Sculptra treatment is ideal for replacing facial fat loss, which occurs as a natural result of the aging process. It is an injectable filler made from a safe, synthetic material known as "poly-L-lactic acid". Sculptra works by increasing collagen production, gradually and significantly increasing skin thickness, especially along the cheeks. Since poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body), no skin test is required.
Sculptra can be used alone or in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as Botox, and other dermal fillers. It also effectively restores facial volume in patients who have had thread lifts or surgical face lifts. We will be happy to explain your options during your skincare consultation and put together a treatment plan that helps you achieve your goals.
While the improvements from Sculptra can last up to 2 years, it is not permanent filler. Many patients return periodically for maintenance treatments.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Although there's no downtime associated with your Sculptra treatment, the procedure can take from 15 minutes up to 1 hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Improvements appear gradually as collagen production increases, which can take approximately 6 weeks. Optimal results usually require at least 3 to 6 treatments, each spaced 2 to 3 weeks apart.
