We’re all aging—and it’s just a fact of life. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and volume, causing moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. But what if there was a way to restore your youthful glow? You’ve probably heard about injectable fillers, but you’re not sure what they do or if they’re right for you. What makes Sculptra® different? It works by stimulating your body’s own collagen production—so instead of just filling in lines and creases, Sculptra® helps your skin restore itself from within.
Sculptra® is a synthetic injectable that can be used to restore moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It’s made from a synthetic version of your body’s own proteins, so it’s natural-looking and smooth. Sculptra® can fill out moderate to severe facial folds, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other creases around the mouth, eyes, and cheeks. It can also be used in combination with other injectables to treat deep wrinkles on the face.
Sculptra® can be used to treat the following:
Sculptra® offers a unique approach to treating wrinkles that’s different from other treatments on the market today. For this reason, it has become a popular choice for patients who want to enhance their look without resorting to surgery.
Sculptra® works by stimulating the body’s own collagen production, helping to rebuild the structure of your skin and restore volume to areas where it has been lost over time. It will not cause allergic reactions or other adverse effects. It’s a synthetic injectable, which means it’s made from non-animal tissue and doesn’t contain any animal products or byproducts. Injected deeply in strategic areas, Sculptra® treats the underlying cause of facial volume loss such as bone loss, collagen, and fat loss rather than simply affecting specific areas where lines and wrinkles are prevalent.
Sculptra® is designed for moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as those caused by facial volume loss due to aging or from facial lipoatrophy (loss of fat). This means that it’s safe for all skin types—even sensitive ones! The results of this treatment are almost immediate, with continued improvement over the next few weeks. Sculptra® is a good option for those who want long-lasting effects from their injectable filler treatment but don’t want something as permanent as a surgical procedure like a facelift or laser resurfacing. Best of all, the final results of the treatment will easily last two years, but some people enjoy the final results of the treatment for five years!
The process begins with an injection of Sculptra® into the deeper layers of your skin. The material then starts working to stimulate your body’s own collagen production, creating new, healthy tissue underneath the surface of your skin. This new tissue will then be visible as natural-looking plumpness in your skin.
The treatment takes about 15 minutes per area treated and should be administered by a licensed and trained provider. Most patients experience minimal side effects from Sculptra®, but some may experience swelling or bruising at the injection site. You should let your provider know if you experience any pain or discomfort after treatment; this could indicate an infection.
Ageless by Sculptra® is injected with a small needle in and around deep nasolabial folds, chin wrinkles, and marionette lines. This procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes.
Our patients report noticeable results in the treated area within 3-4 months with full results showing at 6 months, depending on the prescription injection.
