Over time our skin loses collagen, a naturally occurring substance that provides structural support to the skin. As a result, lines and wrinkles form around the eyes, nose, mouth and chin. Unlike other fillers, which use hyaluronic acid to temporarily restore facial volume and fullness, Sculptra immediately replenishes the lost collagen and stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen for lasting improvements.
You may be a suitable candidate for Sculptra treatment if you are at least 21 years old and wish to minimize noticeable lines and wrinkles and restore lasting support to your skin.
Because of Sculptra’s unique formulation, some providers use it for non-surgical buttock augmentation. Well-placed injections can add natural-looking shape and roundness to a flat behind. Inquire with our team for more details about Sculptra non-surgical buttock augmentation.
To qualify for treatment, you should not have any allergies to the ingredients of the filler or active skin infections/inflammation. If you are prone to keloid scars, please alert Dr. Ereso or your injector ahead of time.
Sculptra is intended to treat the loss of facial volume and elasticity that occurs with age. Its primary ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid, restores adds volume and structure to the face while kickstarting the body’s collagen production.
Preparation For Treatment
Prior to your Sculptra treatment, you will consult with Dr. Ereso or another one of our experienced injectors. Together, the two of you will review your facial anatomy, concentrating on the areas you wish to rejuvenate. The injector will explain where the Sculptra will be injected and how much will be used to achieve your desired results.
Little downtime is required after Sculptra treatment. You should be able to resume your normal routine almost immediately, as long as you avoid direct sun exposure and vigorous exercise for at least 24 hours.
Your Sculptra results will reveal themselves in the days and weeks following treatment, as your body’s collagen reserves are replenished. Depending on your unique treatment plan, you may require two or three sessions to see results. Thanks to Sculptra’s unique formulation, you can enjoy your results for two years or longer. You may choose to undergo maintenance treatments every few years to prolong the life of your results.
Serious side effects are uncommon but include the following:
- Adverse reaction to Sculptra’s ingredients
- Numbness or other changes in sensation at the injection site
- Migration of the filler to another area of the face
If you are worried about the safety profile of Sculptra, Dr. Ereso or Nurse Iwona would be happy to address your concerns in detail.
The cost of Sculptra treatment depends on the number of treatment sessions and amount of product required. Combining Sculptra with another procedure will add to the total cost. Our team will provide you with a price quote at the time of your consultation.
