Replenish Facial Volume
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable filler that restores and corrects the physical signs of the loss of facial fat, replenishing facial volume from the interlayer of sensitive skin. The loss of facial fat, or lipoatrophy, is a condition that is predominantly characterized by the loss of fat deposits from the skin resulting in sunken cheeks, facial indentations, and hollow eyes. Sculptra is a formulation that gradually increases the thickness of the skin in order to improve the appearance of skin reducing the fine lines and facial folds across the face and adding volume to something serious as well.
Who are good candidates for Sculptra treatment?
Ideally, patients who want to receive a Sculptra treatment must have healthy immune systems and can keep up with the treatment plan comprised of up to 4 sessions of Sculptra injections scheduled just a few weeks apart. These successive sessions are intended to correct shallow to deep wrinkles and facial folds, or even contour deficiencies. Sculptra must be avoided by patients who have an active skin infection on the target areas, allergies to any of the components, or a history of hypertrophic scarring.
How does it work?
Sculptra works by essentially taking the place of the skin’s natural collagen that inherently decreases as the patient ages and, thus, results in the formation of wrinkles. Sculptra is administered in a series of injections to gradually reinforce the skin’s structure from within the lower layers to achieve a subtle, longer-lasting lift.
Where should I consider using Sculptra?
Sculptra is used to correct shallow to deep facial folds and wrinkles that develop in various areas of the face including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. This formulation provides a very subtle lift that does not look too drastic or obvious to the onlooker. Despite its beautifully subtle effects, the longevity of the outcomes of Sculptra are highly notable since one treatment regimen can produce results that can last for more than two years, which cannot be achieved by other dermal fillers.
What results will I see with Sculptra?
The results obtained with Sculptra are long lasting, but may not be immediately noticeable after the initial administration. Over the course of the treatment, Sculptra produces a refined and younger looking appearance that can last for two years, or more.
