What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to address the root causes of facial aging by stimulating the body's natural collagen production. Unlike traditional fillers that merely fill in wrinkles or add volume to specific areas, Sculptra® works by rejuvenating the facial structure from within. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic substance that has been used in medical products for decades.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
When injected into the deeper layers of the skin, Sculptra® acts as a collagen stimulator, encouraging the body to produce new collagen. Collagen is a key protein in the skin that provides structure and elasticity. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and volume loss. By stimulating collagen production, Sculptra® gradually restores facial volume and smooths out lines and wrinkles.
Am I a Candidate for Sculptra® Treatments?
Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kendall Peters, and physician assistant, Kristen Neilson, PA-C, may recommend Sculptra® for treating signs of aging such as volume loss, deep lines, and wrinkles. It is ideal for patients who would like to achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing surgical procedures. It is suitable for both men and women who are looking for long-lasting, natural-looking results. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for Sculptra® treatments is to schedule a consultation at the Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
What is the Sculptra® Treatment Like?
Sculptra® treatments involve a series of injections made into the targeted areas of the face. The procedure is typically comfortable, with most patients experiencing only a slight pinch during the injection. Each session is quick, often taking less than an hour.
How Many Sculptra® Treatments Will I Need?
The number of Sculptra® treatments required can vary based on individual needs and goals. Dr. Peters and Kristen Neilson will develop a personalized treatment plan during your consultation, often recommending two to three sessions spaced about a month apart for optimal results.
What Results Can I Expect from Sculptra®?
The treatment process with Sculptra® is unique because it offers gradual, natural-looking results. After the initial series of treatments, patients will notice their skin becoming firmer, more voluminous, and more youthful in appearance. The improvements from your treatments will evolve gradually as collagen production increases, with results that can last up to two years or more.
