If you desire more long term results with three-dimensional filler to achieve a rejuvenated & youthful face, then Sculptra is for you! This is an FDA approved product which is made out of micro particles containing Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), carboxymethylcellulose, & non-pyrogenic mannitol which aids in neocollagenesis when injected, meaning formation of your own new body collagen production (collagen production stimulation). Initial consultation is also necessary to find out if this is right for you. This is also recommended for use in immunocompromised people for facial lipoatrophy fat loss of under the skin which results in sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, or indentation. Like hyaluronic fillers, this also has no downtime that aids in signs of facial aging by replacing a perfect amount to the volume loss on mid and lower facial area, eradicates the creases in nasolabial folds, prevents saggy skin, & provides jaw line laxity. It can also be performed on your buttocks area for enhancement.

Sculptra Face does more than just “fill” the face. It kickstarts collagen production, aiding the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. Results develop gradually, looking completely natural and lasting much longer than most other injectables. This dermal filler is truly one-of-a-kind. If you’re considering turning back the clock, this injectable treatment is worth exploring.

How Sculptra Differs from Other Dermal Fillers:

Unlike other gel-based fillers that focus on “filling” the face, Sculptra primarily stimulates collagen production. It encourages the face to naturally replenish itself with additional collagen. Additionally, the gradual onset of results is unique to Sculptra, as some other dermal fillers provide faster results but with shorter-lasting effects.

Are You a Candidate?

The best way to determine if you’re a candidate for this unique dermal filler is to schedule a consultation. During this session, we’ll review your health history, evaluate your concerns, discuss your cosmetic goals, and decide if this treatment is suitable for you. However, here are some early indicators that you may be an especially good candidate:

1. You’ve noticed a decrease in facial volume.

2. Your skin is healthy.

3. You’re patient and can wait for results.

4. You’re in good overall health.

5. You can commit to post-treatment massages.

6. You prefer a convenient, non-invasive treatment option.

Why is My Face Losing Volume?

The gradual loss of volume and fat in the face is a common part of the aging process. Factors such as repetitive facial expressions, declining fat levels, and the effects of gravity contribute to this change. Additionally, collagen, responsible for the face’s underlying structure, naturally diminishes over time. Rapid weight fluctuations, sun damage, stress, and hormonal shifts also play a role in the loss of facial volume.

How Can Sculptra Help?

Dermal fillers work in different ways to restore volume. While Sculptra focuses on rebuilding collagen levels, many other fillers rely on hyaluronic acid. Once in place, hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge under the skin, collecting moisture and expanding to fill lines, wrinkles, and areas that have lost contour.

Our practice offers hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, as well as Radiesse, a filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite.

Is There Anything I Can Do to Prevent Volume Loss?

In addition to Sculptra, maintaining a thorough at-home skincare routine is crucial. Regularly cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your face can help keep your skin healthy and collagen levels up. Lifestyle choices such as minimizing sun exposure and alcohol consumption, as well as stress management, can also make a difference. Avoiding smoking, which weakens the skin, is another wise decision. However, to some extent, the loss of facial volume is an inevitable part of aging that we can’t completely prevent.

6 Compelling Reasons to Consider Sculptra:

1. Natural Results: Most patients receive a series of four Sculptra injections over several weeks. The injections are administered in different directions, creating a mesh-like pattern under the skin. This ensures comprehensive coverage and serves as a foundation for collagen development. Since collagen production takes time, it may be several months before the full facial improvements take effect. This gradual onset of results leads to a more natural appearance, avoiding the “over-filled” look.

2. Comprehensive Rejuvenation: By stimulating collagen production, this dermal filler repairs the underlying structure of the face, offering various cosmetic benefits. It adds fullness to the face, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. Bony areas like cheekbones are softened, and areas that may have become shallow over time, like the temple, can be plumped up. This filler broadly improves facial features, earning it the nickname “liquid facelift.”

3. Low-maintenance Option: This filler entails an initial series of treatments, each taking less than an hour and requiring no downtime. Many patients even schedule these appointments during their lunch break. After completing the initial injections, you’re good to go for two years, with no need for frequent follow-up treatments or top-offs. It’s a treatment you won’t have to worry about.

4. Long-lasting Improvement: By essentially rebuilding the underlying structure of the face through collagen generation, Sculptra offers results that endure much longer than most other injectables. Patients typically enjoy their results for two years or more. Even if you choose not to repeat the treatment, the extra collagen generated by this “fluid facelift” keeps you ahead in the aging process.

5. Butt-lifting Potential: While primarily used for facial enhancement, did you know that Sculptra can also perk up the buttocks? It works similarly in this area, generating collagen production to lift and tone over several months.

6. No Allergy Concerns: Unlike many other fillers containing hyaluronic acid, which helps retain moisture and keep the skin hydrated, Sculptra contains Poly-L-Lactic Acid, a substance used in dissolvable sutures. This dermal filler poses no risk of an allergic reaction and requires no allergy testing, as Poly-L-Lactic Acid is synthetic and naturally fades from the body after stimulating collagen development.

Preparatory Guidelines:

1. Refrain from using Aspirin, NSAIDS, Ginko Biloba, Garlic Supplements, Green Tea, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamins A and E, and essential fatty acids for up to one week before and after the injection, as they can heighten the risk of bruising.

2. Abstain from consuming alcoholic beverages 24 hours before (or after) your treatment to minimize the potential for additional bruising.

3. You may opt to take Arnica tablets 2-3 days prior to your injection to diminish the risk of bruising.

4. Avoid applying products that may be potentially irritating for 2-3 days preceding and following the treatment (examples include tretinoin/retin-a, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, hydroquinone).

5. Inform your provider if you have a history of cold sores to receive guidance on antiviral therapy before treatment.

6. Do not use the aforementioned substances if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to any of their ingredients. Feel free to consult your provider if you have any questions regarding this prior to the treatment.

On the Treatment Day:

1. If desired, you may apply a topical anesthetic medication in the office before your scheduled appointment (please arrive 30 minutes prior to the procedure).

2. Ensure your face is clean upon arrival. Refrain from wearing makeup.

3. You might feel a mild degree of tenderness or stinging during and after the injection.

4. Expect redness and swelling, which are normal. Some bruising may also occur.

Number of Treatments:

1. It’s common for a patient to undergo four treatments over several weeks. However, treatment plans can vary based on individual cosmetic needs.

Aftercare Guidelines:

1. Apply ice (with gentle pressure) for 15 minutes, three times on the day of treatment.

2. If you experience mild tenderness or discomfort, you may take Acetaminophen/Tylenol.

3. Gently massage the treated areas five times a day, for five minutes each time, for five days after the treatment.

4. Following the treatment, expect moderate swelling and redness, along with the possibility of bruising. These symptoms should subside in approximately seven days. Consider applying or taking Arnica tablets to help reduce bruising.

5. Refrain from prolonged exposure to UV rays until any redness or swelling has subsided. Apply SPF.

6. Avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours to minimize bruising. You may resume other regular activities and routines immediately.

7. Postpone laser, IPL, or skin tightening treatments in the treated area for at least 2-3 weeks.
