The battle against aging is a continual one. Every year brings with it new wrinkles and other changes that can affect the way that we look. The older we look, the less confident we may feel about our appearance. Sculptra® is a procedure that is designed to help slow down unwanted signs of aging and help retain a youthful appearance.
Sculptra® is an injectable treatment performed in the comfort of our office. The number of injections varies depending on how much correction is needed. A lot is determined during your consultation with our specialist. It is best to talk about any concerns you might have during this time.
Since Sculptra® does not use any human components and does not have any animal components, allergy testing is not necessary before having the treatments. Side effects are rare. However, some temporary redness and swelling after the treatment may occur but should dissipate quickly.
Sculptra® can be used to address deep hollows in the pre-jowl area, nasolabial folds, as well as hollows in the upper and lower cheeks. It can restore lost facial volume in certain areas of the face, leading to a younger appearance overall. Generally speaking, the best results are achieved after a series of 2 to 3 treatment sessions.
One of the great things about this treatment is the long lasting results. Unlike other fillers that only last for months at a time, the results of Sculptra® can last for up to two years, depending on the situation. With that being said, the results vary from person to person.
