If you have been looking for a natural, long-lasting filler to restore lost volume and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, Sculptra may be the right choice for you.
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved filler that increases collagen production over time. Unlike other dermal fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra works by stimulating your own natural collagen production, making the results more natural as they develop over time.
Sculptra is an effective, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that treats the signs of aging, such as wrinkles around the mouth, lost volume in the mid-face, and increased prominence of the nasolabial folds.
Benefits of Sculptra
In addition to producing extremely natural results, Sculptra also offers the following benefits:
- Long-lasting results: Sculptra can last as long as two years, making it one of the longest-lasting fillers on the market.
- Stimulates collagen production: Sculptra restores lost volume while simultaneously stimulating collagen production.
- Non-invasive treatment: Because treatment with Sculptra is non-invasive, there is no associated downtime. You can return to normal activities immediately after injection.
- Versatile filler: Sculptra can be injected in various areas to restore lost volume. These include the temples, cheeks, and chin, in addition to filling in lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
The Sculptra Procedure
The first step is a consultation where you can discuss what you hope to achieve with Sculptra. If found to be a suitable candidate, Dr. Walker will mark the treatment areas for injection. A topical anesthetic will be applied to keep you comfortable during the procedure. After your injections, an ice pack will be applied to reduce any redness or swelling.
After treatment, you may have slight redness and swelling at the injection sites. These side effects are temporary and will resolve quickly. It is important to note the results from Sculptra are not immediate, so you will not see any difference at first.
Am I Candidate?
Both men and women who are showing the first signs of aging are suitable candidates for Sculptra. Sculptra is particularly effective for patients who want natural-looking results without having to undergo more invasive procedures, such as PDO threads or a facelift.
What Are the Most Common Treatment Areas?
The most common areas for treatment include the chin, cheeks (mid-face), and temples. These are the first places to show the signs of aging.
Is Sculptra Safe?
Yes, Sculptra is an extremely safe filler. It is the first FDA-approved filler that is clinically proven to stimulate collagen production.
Can I Combine Sculptra With Other Fillers?
Yes, you combine Sculptra with other types of dermal fillers. However, it is best to work with an experienced injector who can explain how different fillers work and where they should be injected.
