Sculptra is a Poly-l-lactic acid filler that creates volume by stimulating the skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost due to aging.
Sculptra differs from other HA fillers and Radiesse in that it requires several treatments (up to 4 depending on the age of your skin) to achieve the optimal results. Sculptra is used to correct shallow or deep for cheeks, temples, and jawline areas that become hollowed with age. All fillers to date are absorbed by the body over time, but Sculptra can last up to 25 months.
Obviously, the results will not be the same over its duration and often maintenance injections are desired. Sculptra treatment Areas include: deep facial wrinkles, chin wrinkles, temples, and total facial volume. Anyone concerned with facial aging, deep wrinkles, skin laxity or those who desire more prominent contours of the face. Some medications, lifestyles and medical conditions may be contraindicated, restrict or prohibit treatment.
The treatment areas are numbed with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the treatment begins. Sculptra can be administered through a cannula (a small, blunt-tipped needle) or injected deeper into the bone. Both processes are made comfortable by the numbing cream and the steady hand of the injector. Ice packs are offered during and after treatment for added comfort. Additional treatments would be scheduled three weeks apart. Most Newport Beach Sculptra patients require three to four treatments for optimal results.
Sculptra results are gradual and will require multiple treatments. Immediately following treatment, the treated area is more voluminous, and deep wrinkles reduced. Three to five days later, the volume disappears, as the skin’s natural collagen network is set into motion. By the end of the treatment period, full volume in the treated area(s) is achieved.
Sculptra is clinically proven to last more than two years (clinical trials ended at 25 months). However, each body absorbs Sculptra at its own rate.
People with fast metabolism and athletes can expect to absorb Sculptra more quickly. For best results, protect skin by limiting sun exposure and applying a physical sunblock daily, such as CORE made in the shade or Elta MD. In some cases, Botox may enhance Sculptra’s results and longevity.
