Sculptra® is a dermal filler that can minimize signs of aging like lost volume and fine lines throughout the face. At Geria Dermatology in New Jersey, Sculptra® is a popular alternative to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers among patients who desire subtle enhancement of the facial contours and long-term skin rejuvenation over more dramatic, short-term effects.
What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® injections can restore a more youthful facial appearance by smoothing out wrinkles and promoting healthier, stronger skin. Sculptra®’s specialized poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) formula sets it apart from other types of dermal fillers in terms of:
Collagen is the foundation of firm, resilient skin. As we age, the body produces less collagen, and that foundation weakens. The skin loses structure and begins to droop and wrinkle.
Many injectables can resolve visible symptoms of decreased collagen production by filling out wrinkles and adding volume. However, Sculptra® addresses both the cause and symptoms of aging skin by stimulating natural collagen production as well as restoring lost volume.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are often metabolized within a few months of injection, so maintaining results requires frequent retreatments. In contrast, Sculptra® patients can enjoy their rejuvenated countenance for up to two years before needing a maintenance treatment.
Am I a Candidate for Sculptra®?
Patients seeking a long-term, non-surgical solution for mild to deep facial wrinkles and/or lost facial volume can be good candidates for Sculptra®. Candidates must be in good physical health and willing to follow all pre-and-post-procedure instructions.
Candidates must also have realistic expectations for their results. While Sculptra® stimulates collagen production to significantly improve the appearance of the skin over time, it is not intended to resolve skin laxity. Patients with considerable sagging and/or excess facial skin are likely better candidates for a more intensive facial rejuvenation approach.
What to Expect After Sculptra®
Sculptra® is a minimal downtime procedure. Bruising and/or swelling may occur after Sculptra® injections. These symptoms typically dissipate within a few days. You may be advised to gently massage the treatment area to support and accelerate your recovery.
Sculptra® provides a moderate volume increase right away, which can help to smooth out wrinkles and reduce the appearance of sunken or hollow facial features. While this is a great benefit, Sculptra® distinguishes itself from ordinary fillers by stimulating collagen production to restore stronger, firmer, and more resilient skin long-term.
As collagen production increases in the weeks following a Sculptra® procedure, gradual, ongoing improvements in the tone and texture of the skin can be expected. Patients can enjoy their Sculptra® results for up to 24 months.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
The price of your Sculptra® treatment will depend on the number of injections and the dose needed to achieve your facial enhancement goals. All costs associated with your Sculptra® procedure will be reviewed with you during your consultation.
