Not all dermal fillers are created equal— some of them go the extra mile! Sculptra® is one injectable treatment that does more than just provide volume so you can enjoy long-lasting results even after the product fades.
Sculptra® is an injectable treatment made with poly-L-lactic acid, which is a common ingredient in absorbable sutures. Sculptra® makes use of this beneficial substance because it can effectively boost collagen production in the skin. Over time, the skin becomes less effective at generating new collagen and begins to lose supportive volume, causing the skin to wrinkle and fold. Sculptra® effectively fills in wrinkles with a viscous gel and, as this gel is absorbed by the body, new collagen is generated and left behind in its place. This makes for an extremely effective treatment option without downtime or recovery.
Sculptra® is an excellent option for many patients and can be used to fill in areas like the lines and folds around the mouth and plump the lips. However, it’s important to know that Sculptra® treatments do not necessarily produce immediate results like other dermal filler options— rather, it can take a few treatment sessions before you achieve your ideal contours. During your consultation with our expert injectors, we can ensure you understand what to expect and can also discuss any medical concerns that might mean you should look at other options.
Sculptra® treatments can take less than 30 minutes. We can provide a topical anesthetic so that you’re comfortable and relaxed during treatment, and this will be administered first. Once you’re ready, the product will be injected with a fine needle into each treatment area. Afterward, you can return home.
Most patients require 2 or more treatment sessions for best results with Sculptra®, as well as occasional touch-up treatments in the years following. It can take a few weeks for your results to begin to emerge. Immediately following treatment, you can expect some minor swelling and redness at the injection sites. Our expert team can recommend a regimen of physician-grade products and treatments to fully address your concern areas and transform signs of aging.
