Sculptra®

What is Sculptra®?

 

Sculptra® is a facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible and biodegradable material that helps replace and replenish collagen. We use Sculptra® to help correct a variety of deep facial wrinkles, folds, and sagging; giving the face a more youthful, volumized appearance. Results for Sculptra® can last up to 2 years, making it one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers on the market.

 

Who is eligible for Sculptra® treatment?

 

Sculptra® should not be used by people who have an allergy to any component of the product. If you are unsure whether any of the ingredients will likely pose a problem for you, we will be happy to carefully review all known allergies and negative reactions you’ve had to past products or treatments. Do not use Sculptra® if you are either breastfeeding or pregnant. Sculptra® is also not to be used by people younger than 18 years of age.

 

Patients should have realistic expectations for their results and should also be committed to taking care of their skin following treatment and before any future treatments.

 

Is Sculptra® safe? Are there any side effects?

 

Although we will do our best to insure a safe and positive result from the treatment, you may experience side effects. One can experience negative side effects, with some of the most common side effects including temporary injection site reactions such as:

 

  • Injection site pain
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Nodule formation
  • Injection site pain

 

Often mild in nature these side effects last for a short period of time. As with all skin injection procedures there is a risk of infection in the treated area. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, be sure to call us as soon as possible so that we may help you during your recovery period.

 

How long does Sculptra® last? When will I start seeing results?

 

Sculptra® Aesthetic is the first facial injectable with results that can last for more than 2 years* after your last treatment. Results may vary depending on the amount of care you provide to your skin after your treatment and before any future treatments. Some visible improvements can be seen within the first few weeks of treatment, but the Sculptra® Aesthetic regimen is designed to deliver its unique effects, with an average of 3-5 treatment sessions, over the course of a few months. Because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle yet noticeable improvement in the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds; your aging did not happen overnight, Sculptra® gives a gradual and notable change in your appearance.

* Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.

 

Why get Sculptra®?

 

If you want natural, progressive results that take effect more slowly, Sculptra® Aesthetic may be right for you. What is the advantage of Sculptra®’s more continuous nature of taking effect? The primary advantage most Sculptra® fans cite is that there is no shocking change from one day to the next. Many of their family members, friends and colleagues simply credit their improved appearance to a more comprehensive skincare regimen or better diet. Don’t worry – we won’t tell anyone that you haven’t simply been drinking more water and getting more sleep!
