Wrinkles and fine lines are a result of aging, and all of us will get them. However, not all of us feel like our most confident selves when seeing these in the mirror. In addition, wrinkles and lines can appear in areas of the body other than the face, including the hips and the buttocks. Thankfully, due to safe, effective treatments like Sculptra®, we can help you achieve the look you want. 

What Is Sculptra®?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler. It’s a non-invasive and safe procedure that provides excellent results with very minimal effort. The quick treatment and recovery time makes it an easy and convenient option for patients. We understand that our patients lead full lives, and that carving out time to receive a complicated procedure can be a hassle. Sculptra is an excellent option for patients looking for something truly easy that can still help them achieve their dream skin.

Sculptra’s main ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to produce more collagen in the body. Collagen is a substance that is responsible for providing plumpness to the skin. In addition, Sculptra helps the body produce more collagen in the future, as well, leading to refreshed and youthful skin.

Who Is a Candidate for Sculptra?

Sculptra is a great option for people who want to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, smooth skin or address any irregularities, and achieve a plumper look. Ideal candidates are relatively healthy and don’t have any underlying conditions that would affect the treatment or recovery. During our consultation, we’ll go over your medical history with you to make sure that you’re a good candidate for this treatment. Candidates are also willing to collaborate with us to talk about goals and expectations. We want to work with you to achieve results that will give you lasting confidence. 

What to Expect During a Sculptra Procedure

Our team will tell you how to prepare for this treatment during your consultation. Certain medications may need to be stopped or altered temporarily to prevent bleeding and bruising, especially anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or supplements like fish oil. 

First, we’ll clean the skin of the targeted area thoroughly. Then, we’ll apply a numbing agent onto the skin. You’ll be awake for this procedure, which usually takes less than an hour. Using a fine needle, we’ll insert Sculptra into the skin, massaging and evaluating as we go to make sure it’s distributed. The amount of injections needed varies between patients.

Sculptra Aftercare

Although Sculptra isn’t permanent, it’s long-lasting–results can be seen for over two years. Patients can usually resume standard activity levels right after the treatment, but exercise should be avoided for a few days to minimize swelling. Full results can usually start to be seen a month after the treatment has been done. Our team will go over your recovery plan with you to make sure you know how to take care of yourself at home.
