What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a minimally invasive dermal filler treatment that gradually increases your body’s natural production of collagen for a beautifully natural-looking and youthful appearance for the long-term. Unlike other dermal filler treatments, Sculptra® is specially formulated using poly-L-lactic acid, a material that promotes the body’s production of collagen for smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Patients report their skin continually feeling and looking more refreshed for more than two years following their initial treatment. We typically recommend patients consider Sculptra® to address:
- Smile lines, laugh lines, or parentheses on the outer corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines, or vertical lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin
- Chin wrinkles or a weak jawline
What Can I Expect During my Sculptra® Treatment?
Each of your Sculptra® treatments will be performed in our beautiful medical facility by Dr. Sarah Dolder or one of our other medical professionals. Before your Sculptra® treatment begins, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area, typically around the lower two-thirds of the face. Once you are numb and relaxed, a series of Sculptra® injections will carefully and strategically be made into your treatment area. Your entire treatment process should take less than an hour to complete.
What Results Can I Expect from Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a minimally invasive treatment that does not require any downtime or recovery period. Most patients report returning to their normal daily activities, including work, immediately following their treatment. Because the poly-L-lactic acid in Sculptra® does take time to take effect in the body, initial results may not be visible for the first six to eight weeks following treatment. The results of your Sculptra® treatment will improve over the following months and have the potential to last more than two years following your initial treatment.
