Sculptra activates your skin's natural regenerative process to help replenish lost facial collagen. This FDA-approved injectable gradually helps restore facial volume by helping to support the skin’s inner structure – giving you a striking resemblance to a younger version of yourself. From smile lines and marionette lines to chin wrinkles, these folds and wrinkles are no match for the rejuvenative power of Sculptra.
Sculptra addresses underlying causes of facial aging, not just the symptoms. Results appear naturally and gradually - and can last up to two years.
Sculptra is a biostimulatory injectable that can work as a stand-alone or alongside many other treatments that we offer. Sculptra improves the structural framework of the face as it ages, and it improves the quality of your skin.
Sculptra is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed into the deeper dermal layers, they help stimulate collagen production. The rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually restoring facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds, restoring facial volume.
Before your treatment session, we will spend time reviewing your medical conditions and any medications you’re taking, as well as answering any questions you may have.
Your appointment will last anywhere from half an hour to 45 minutes. Anesthetic is mixed into Sculptra Aesthetic, so injections are very comfortable.
If you have a history of recent illness or vaccines, chronic immune dysfunction, or have had dental cleanings or work done by a dentist recently, immune reactions could present added risk to your procedure. Please make sure to report this history before undergoing treatment with an injectable. Do not undergo Sculptra treatments if you have an active skin infection or injury.
The week before your treatment, avoid the following to minimize bruising during and after your procedure:
Check with your prescribing physician to ensure the safety of withdrawing from any of these medications or supplements.
You can return to your normal daily activities immediately after your treatment. It is also best to avoid applying makeup or skincare products on the day of treatment. You will be instructed on proper massage of the treatment areas, which is required for achieving optimal outcomes.
You may experience a mild to moderate amount of aching sensation post injection, especially over boney areas. Temporary swelling can be expected, which dissipates in the days following injections. Bruising at the site of injection is a commonly reported side effect. Post-procedure relief options will be discussed with your provider. See pre- and post-care instructions.
You may begin to see progressive, visible results within the first few weeks after each treatment session. The treatment regimen for Sculptra is typically three injections over the course of three or four months. Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. Generally, results appear gradually, and results last up to two years.
If you want to appear more youthful, natural, and healthy — without people noticing you’ve had work done — then Sculptra could be the right choice for you. Call ☎ (919) 521-8282 or contact us online to schedule your consultation!
