Why Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® – the treatment that activates your skin’s natural power to revitalize collagen production for a more youthful appearance. Sculptra® is a unique aging and collagen treatment due to its ability to stimulate collagen.
How does Sculptra® Aesthetic work?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body. Sculptra® works with your body to stimulate collagen production lost to aging, rebuilding and reinforcing your skin’s structural foundation. Through a series of treatments, typically about three sessions over a few months, it restores the support and volume of youthful looking skin, providing results that can last up to two years.
Is Sculptra® Aesthetic right for me?
Most people are good candidates for Sculptra® for moderate and harsh wrinkle reduction and volume restoration. Because it is composed of poly-l-lactic acid, a synthetic form of the body’s natural lactic acid, it does not trigger allergic reactions.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is not ideal for patients with autoimmune problems, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and patients who are younger than age 18.
Additionally, it is not ideal for people who have skin problems, are prone to keloids, or are taking blood thinners, aspirin, or anti-inflammatory drugs.
Your Sculptra® Aesthetic consultation
During the consultation, one of our skincare experts will ask about your medical history, including current medications and skin issues. The two of you will discuss your beauty goals.
The skincare expert will examine your skin and develop the right treatment plan based on your needs and concerns. They will be happy to answer all questions.
What is a Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment session like?
The treatment session will start with application of numbing cream or a local anesthetic. The session may last 15 to 30 minutes, then the patient can return home right after.
The injector may choose several injection points for the treatment locations. The filler is then injected under the subcutis layer and dermis of the skin. The injector will determine the right amount of Sculptra® to use.
Sculptra® Aesthetic aftercare
You will need to use an ice pack or massage the treatment area after your session to reduce any swelling. Minor bruising and redness may also be present. No recovery time will be needed.
Results will start to show a few weeks after getting Sculptra® and will improve over time. This filler is effective for two years or more, sometimes even as long as five years from the treatment date. Maintenance treatments will be available.
How much does Sculptra® Aesthetic cost?
The cost of Sculptra® treatments may vary based on the amount of filler and the number of sessions. The final price will be determined based on your treatment plan.
