Sculptra®

WHAT IS SCULPTRA®

Sculptra® is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment for reducing facial lines and wrinkles and created a fuller, more youthful appearance to your face. Also known as the “liquid facelift,” Sculptra® works by stimulating your body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue. Your own collagen fills in the line and wrinkles and also elevates the sagging skin.

We achieve excellent results with Sculptra® in the treatment of many parts of the face including the areas around the eyes and lips, and throughout the cheeks and neck. It adds volume to the cheeks, to the folds around the chin, and to the hollow areas around the eyes.

Sculptra® is a safe FDA approved synthetic material that is injected below the surface of the skin directly into the areas of the face that appear sunken or hollow. Unlike many of the injectable facial fillers, the results achieved with Sculptra can last 2 years or more because it causes the body to stimulate its own collagen. Results may vary among individuals

HOW SCULPTRA® WORKS

Sculptra® is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. Sculptra® provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions.

Sculptra® will not correct the underlying cause of the facial fat loss, but will help improve the appearance by increasing skin thickness in the treated area.

HOW SOON WILL YOU SEE RESULTS WITH SCULPTRA

Sculptra® provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds, indentations, and sunken areas in the face and neck. The results achieved by Sculptra® are natural looking and appear gradually over a few weeks time. Because Sculptra® stimulates the body to produce its own collagen, the results can last up to 2 years and longer in some cases. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT

The doctor will give you specific post-treatment care instructions. You should massage the treated area (a few times each day) for several days after the treatment session. Within the first 24 hours after treatment, an ice pack should be applied for a few minutes at a time to the treatment area to help reduce swelling. Wrap the ice in a cloth and avoid putting ice directly on your skin. Immediately following a treatment session with Sculptra®, redness, swelling, pain, bruising or all of these signs can happen in the treatment area. These signs usually go away in a few hours to a few days. Avoid excessive sun and UV lamp exposure until any initial swelling and redness has resolved.

HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU RETURN TO DAILY ACTIVITIES

Most patients feel comfortable going back to their normal activities immediately following treatment.
