Learn everything you need to know about Sculptra
With numerous options available to address aesthetic concerns, it can be challenging to select the most suitable one. While Botox and Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers produce immediate effects, they are not long-lasting. This is where Sculptra comes into play, providing enduring and authentic outcomes.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a brand name for a dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It is used for facial rejuvenation and is primarily used to treat signs of aging, such as facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. Unlike traditional fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra works gradually over time by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production.
Can Sculptra be injected in areas of the body other than the face?
Sculptra has many benefits and can be used on an array of different parts of the body. In addition to being used on the face, it can also be used on the thighs, buttocks, hands, face, and neck.
When injected into the thighs, Sculptra helps achieve a toned look. In addition to reducing flaccidity in the thighs, the appearance of cellulite is also diminished. Depending on the number of treatments, the results can be permanent.
If you want to increase the size of your buttocks but don’t want to undergo plastic surgery and have a long recovery time, Sculptra might be the answer for you. When injected into the buttocks, Sculptra adds more volume, promotes collagen growth to tighten the buttocks, and reduces wrinkles and cellulite. The process of achieving a lifted butt without surgery involves several sessions, resulting in a natural appearance and texture.
Sculptra may also be used on the hands, face, and neck to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and volume diminishment. Since it stimulates collagen growth, it also helps reduce blemishes and smooth the skin’s texture.
What is the impact of Sculptra injections on the skin?
After Sculptra is injected into the skin, it stimulates the production of collagen, a vital protein that assists in preserving the skin’s structure and flexibility. With time, this newly produced collagen helps to enhance facial contours and diminish wrinkles, resulting in restored volume and improved appearance. Such outcomes are durable, often lasting for more than two years.
Which area is the most frequently treated with Sculptra?
Sculptra is commonly used to treat deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), lines around the mouth (marionette lines), and chin wrinkles. It is important to note that Sculptra should only be administered by a qualified healthcare professional experienced in using dermal fillers.
Who performs the Sculptra injection?
Sculptra should only be administered by a knowledgeable healthcare professional who has expertise in injection of dermal fillers. Sculptra is the first and original PLLA collagen stimulator that, when injected in the cheek area, has been clinically shown to reduce cheek wrinkles, firm the skin and improve skin quality
Before the procedure, our master injector Ellie Zarnegar, PA, DMSc, will numb the injection area with a topical agent to reduce pain or discomfort. She then injects the product into the deep dermis of the area where collagen is produced. With over 20 years of experience in aesthetic medicine, PA Ellie DMSc, makes individual treatment plans for each patient so they can achieve their desired results.
