Unlock the secrets of youthful skin with Sculptra. Experience long-lasting enhancements with this innovative collagen stimulator.

Subtle and Natural-Looking Rejuvenation that Lasts

Sculptra is a unique, injectable treatment designed to stimulate your body's natural collagen production, gradually restoring lost facial volume and smoothing out wrinkles. Unlike immediate fillers, Sculptra works subtly over time, promoting a more youthful appearance that emerges naturally and lasts longer. This treatment is ideal for those looking to enhance their facial contours without invasive surgery, offering a gentle yet effective solution for aging skin.

How Sculptra Works

Sculptra is a bioactivator or "collagen stimulator" that targets the underlying causes of facial aging. It is made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which, when injected, gradually stimulates the body's collagen production. Over time, this increased collagen helps to restore facial volume and diminish facial lines and wrinkles, resulting in a softer, more youthful appearance. Sculptra’s effects are gradual, with improvements becoming more noticeable after several treatments spaced a few weeks apart.

Sculptra rejuvenates areas of concern such as:

  • Cheeks
  • Temples
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Deep lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette lines

The Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra’s transformative approach to anti-aging provides a gradual, noticeable improvement in skin quality and structure without the need for invasive surgery. The renewing benefits include:

  • Restoration of facial volume subtly and gradually
  • Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and folds
  • Enhanced skin elasticity and firmness
  • Natural-looking, long-lasting results
  • Improved overall skin texture and tone
  • Minimization for the need for frequent touch-ups

Your Sculptra Treatment

The Sculptra treatment process involves injectable sessions typically spaced about three to six weeks apart. During each session, Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid-based formula, is carefully injected into the targeted areas of the face. The procedure is relatively quick, usually taking about 30 minutes, and is performed with minimal discomfort, thanks to topical anesthetics. While not immediate, results develop gradually as Sculptra stimulates the body’s collagen production over the following months, achieving a natural, rejuvenated appearance that lasts up to two years.

Ensuring Beautiful Results After Your Treatment

Recovery time after Sculptra treatments is minimal, allowing most patients to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites can occur but typically subsides within a few days.

To best maintain the results of Sculptra, patients should:

  • Avoid extensive sun exposure to prevent skin damage.
  • Apply ice to the treated area to minimize swelling and bruising.
  • Massage the area as directed by Dr. Lewis to ensure the product is distributed evenly.
  • Stay hydrated to support overall skin health.
  • Maintain a healthy skincare routine to enhance the rejuvenating effects.
  • Attend regular follow-up sessions with Dr. Lewis to maintain desired results.
