Droopy Skin? Sagging Skin or Loose Skin? Flattened Contours? Sculptra aesthetic® is your answer!

As we age, we lose fullness of the cheeks, temples, jawline and chin area. Where there used to be light, now there are shadows. By replacing the volume loss, you reverse the creation of shadow and restore the reflection of light and the appearance of youth and vibrancy. A facelift will remove excess skin, and to some degree this will lessen the shadow effect, but a facelift will not restore volume. And volume is what makes you look young. Sculptra® stimulates your own body to restore lost collagen and volume in a natural way.

What is Sculptra®?

It is a “bio-stimulator” that replaces your lost facial volume with your own collagen. It provides a gradual and significant increase in fullness improving the appearance of folds, laxity and sunken areas. Sculptra® is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a safe biocompatible material that is eventually hydrolyzed into carbon dioxide and water. It is your own collagen that provides the actual fullness and not the PLLA.

Is Sculptra® safe?

Sculptra® has been used worldwide since 1999 and received FDA approval for the treatment of smile lines in 2009. Sculptra® does not contain any animal or human ingredients and therefore requires no allergy testing prior to treatment.

How does Sculptra® work?

Sculptra® works within the deep dermis to replace lost collagen by targeting the underlying sources of facial aging. Results emerge subtly but noticeably as the skin’s collagen structure is reinforced and fullness is gradually restored to deep facial folds and wrinkles. Typically, visible improvement will appear within 4-6 weeks after each treatment and will gradually improve up to 12 months after your initial treatment. Your results may last 2-3 years or longer.

What are the possible side effects of treatment with Sculptra®?

The most common side effects with the use of Sculptra® may include bruising, tenderness and/or swelling. These side effects generally last, on average, 3 to 10 days.

How many treatments and vials of Sculptra® are needed?

Most patients typically require 2-3 treatment sessions and a total of 4-6 vials of Sculptra. Dr. Gulcher and her staff will customize a treatment regimen to fit your needs. Individual results and longevity will vary.

What is the cost?

Sculptra® is sold by the vial. Discounted pricing is offered if you prepaid for multiple vials upfront.
