Stimulate Collagen to Restore Volume

Your body’s collagen, designed to provide structural support to your tissues, is made of protein molecules derived from amino acids. Due to collagen’s rigidity and resistance to stretching, it is the perfect matrix for skin, tendons, bones, and ligaments. With age, collagen content declines, and tissues experience both loss of elasticity and volume leading to fine wrinkles, creepy skin, and hollow facial features.

Sculptra® however uses PPLA* to gradually, progressively, and predictably stimulate your body’s collagen production at the treatment site.

In the 1980s, physicians began injecting bovine collagen to combat the visible signs of aging. Collagen injections frequently induced allergic reactions and results only lasted 3 months. Sculptra® however uses Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) to gradually, progressively, and predictably stimulate your body’s own collagen production at the treatment site. Results are seen within 4-8 weeks, and a series of 3 sessions are recommended to gradually build to the final result. Results last up to 2 years and are not reversible.

Sculptra® is used to volumize the temples and midface, as well as contour the jaw and buttocks. It also reduces creepy skin on the face, arms, legs, and buttocks. Sculptra® enhances other cosmetic treatments, such as Botox®, laser treatments, and Morpheus8.

Am I a good candidate for the procedure?

Most individuals seeking to volumize the temples. midface, contouring the jaw and buttocks, or reducing creepy skin on the face, arms, legs, and buttocks are good candidates for Sculptra®.

Is the procedure painful?

Since we pre-mix Sulptra® with lidocaine, treatments are well tolerated. By cooling the area, applying topical lidocaine cream, and if needed, using “laughing gas”, there is minimal discomfort with prompt recovery. 

What is the downtime?

There is minimal downtime and you may resume normal activities immediately. You might experience swelling or redness at the treatments site for 24-72 hours, which may be managed with coll compresses. Laser treatments can help quickly resolve any bruising. You should massage the treated area for 5 minutes, 5 times daily, for 5 days. 

When will I see results?

Results are not immediate, rather they are gradual over 4-8 weeks and can last for up to 24 months. The Sculptra® regimen requires 3 treatment sessions spaces 1 month apart for optimal results.
