What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable filler treatment that has been FDA approved in the treatment of facial lipoatrophy, also known as the loss of subcutaneous fat tissue in the face. Sculptra® is a minimally invasive cosmetic alternative to surgery and it can provide results almost immediately with no downtime required. It works by delivering polylactic acid, a collagen-boosting ingredient, directly to the affected areas to replenish lost volume and facial contour.
Who Can Benefit From Sculptra® Treatments?
If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment option that is both fast acting and long lasting, Sculptra® may be beneficial for you. Men and women who wish to correct the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and depleted facial contours may benefit from this dermal filler treatment. Sculptra® works to gradually boost collagen production naturally within the skin and is specially formulated to both tighten and smooth the skin around the forehead, eyes, and cheeks.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
With many collagen-boosting skin care products, the collagen molecules are much too large to successfully penetrate deep into the skin, where it can truly work to boost elasticity and suppleness. Using an ultra-thin needle, one of our certified aestheticians will inject the powerful Sculptra® serum directly below the skin into the tissue underneath. Once administered, the polylactic acid begins working gradually from within, facilitating the production of collagen in the skin and slowly reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
How to Prepare for Sculptra® Injections
If you are not currently taking any medications, such as including any allergy medications, pain relievers, blood thinners, sleep aids, NSAIDS, or muscle relaxers, you will not have to take extra steps to prepare for your Sculptra® treatment. These medications can interfere with your procedure and cause bruising or inflammation. During your consultation with Dr. Mang, you will be able to discuss your medical history and any supplements or prescriptions you are currently on.
What to Expect After Sculptra® Injections
Once your Sculptra® procedure is complete, you will be free to leave our office immediately. Patients often opt to have the procedure done over their lunch break so they can return to work the same day.
Swelling and tenderness near the injection site is normal and will subside after two to three days. Patients can apply arnica before and after their Sculptra® injections to help combat inflammation.
The results of a Sculptra® will vary on a case-by-case basis and are typically not immediately visible. Patients will continue to see an improvement in the look and feel of the skin over the next one to two years.
