Sculptra®

Sculptra

Sculptra®is an FDA approved synthetic biodegradable polymer that over time stimulates collagen production, restoring fullness and elasticity to the skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, we lose facial fat and subsequently, our skin loses its youthful volume.

Where do I use Sculptra®?

I use Sculptra® for moderate to severe nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the nose to your upper lip, marionette lines, the creases that frame the sides of your lips and wrinkles in your chin.

Why is Sculptra® Better?

Because Sculptra® gradually works to stimulate collagen production, the necessary network of fibers that give your skin it's fullness and elasticity, it's not a typical filler. It works in the dermis, deep below the skin, laying the foundation for new collagen growth.

Unlike many other injectable fillers, like Juvederm® or Restylane®, you'll need three separate appointments over the course of a few months. Spacing appointment at four to six week intervals allows Sculptra® to begin stimulating new collagen growth, gives me the opportunity to see how it's working and modify the treatment allowing for the best possible outcome.

When will I see results?

Although you will have swelling and your wrinkles and folds will appear to diminish, as the swelling subsides, your wrinkles will again appear. Don't worry. Deep within your skin, Scultpra® is working from below to soften and smooth those wrinkles.

You'll see subtle and natural changes over time and won't have that sudden transformation that puts off many women and men from having treatment.

Does it hurt?

There may be slight discomfort at the injection site so we offer patients the option of a topical anesthetic that will numb the area prior to treatment.

How long is the recovery?

There is no downtime, though most patients experience swelling at the injection sites. You may use apply ice wrapped in a washcloth to reduce swelling and you will be given instructions on how to gently massage your face a few times a day. You may resume normal activities but you'll need to stay out of the sun.

Step 2: Come for your visit

When you come in for your appointment, we begin by talking about the facial areas you'd like to improve and your personal ideal results. Then, we prescribe the combination of treatments needed to reach this goal. These treatments are then administered on the spot. There's no need to plan a separate visit or to make any special arrangements for the day you get your care. Our treatments require no down time. After our short visit, you can return to your normal, productive day!

Step 3: Return for touch-ups

One week after your initial treatment, we meet again to discuss the results. If there are any areas that require touch up, we treat those areas during this visit. Then, we discuss how to maintain your results and we make a plan for the future care of your fresh new looks!
