What is Sculptra®?
While the majority of dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid and volumize the skin for a matter of months, Sculptra® stands apart for its ability to create lasting results that create subtle improvements to your natural appearance over time. Sculptra® is injected into the skin with a fine needle and is formulated differently than other skin rejuvenation treatments.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Derived from poly-L-lactic acid, this filler is formulated to replace lost collagen in the skin. One of the essential building blocks for skin structure and strength, collagen production significantly decreases as men and women age. While other dermal fillers provide immediate volume to the skin and are absorbed by the body in a short period of time, the poly-L-lactic acid of Sculptra® works within your skin to reinforce the structure and gradually replace your natural collagen.
What are the Benefits of Sculptra®?
- Injectable treatment that is quick and easy to fit into any busy schedule
- Discreet, subtle results that leave no tell-tale signs that you have “had work done”
- Gradual improvements that can last for up to two years with optimal treatment
- Customizable treatments that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals while maintaining your natural appearance
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any injectable treatments, slight redness, itching, and swelling may develop at injection sites but should subside within a day or two. Complications are rare, and Dr. Collins will share any additional safety information with you during your consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
Men and women who are experiencing lines, wrinkles, and visible signs of aging around the nose and mouth and who are interested in non-surgical treatment with long-lasting results may be good candidates for this injectable. Results may vary, and Dr. Collins will evaluate your individual condition and several other factors to help you determine if Sculptra® is the best course of treatment for you.
