Sculptra

Facial collagen is a key factor in the facial aging process, which acts as a support structure for your skin. Starting at about age 30, collagen loss begins to occur, resulting in decreases in elasticity and moisture. Sculptra is the only volumizer designed to stimulate natural collagen production. Over time, the collagen production restores volume and improves skin density.

Sculptra Can Help:

  • Restore volume over time, allowing light to reflect off the face as it does in our youth
  • Correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corner of your mouth (nasal labial folds)
  • Improve fullness to a sunken or hallowed area, such as below the eyes, sides of the temples and mid-face

How is the Treatment Performed?

Sculptra is administered into the treatment area as an injection. The area is first sterilized with an alcohol wipe, then treatment is administered. Sculptra is mixed with a numbing agent, so that the injection process is very tolerable. After treatment, patients may experience extra volume in the treated area, which is a result of the product being injected with sterile water. After a couple days the water is reabsorbed by the body, leaving the product to stimulate collagen production. Results are slower, but longer lasting as your body works to produce collagen and minimize the appearance of the loss of fat and bony mass which is a part of the normal aging process.
