Many people have tried dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm to restore their facial features and provide a more rejuvenated appearance. Sculptra is a unique dermal filler designed to fill the sunken areas of the face to provide a smooth, youthful fullness. Unlike typical dermal fillers, Sculptra is very long lasting, producing rejuvenated results for up to two years.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is made from synthetic poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally produced by the body. Sculptra diminishes facial gauntness, lines, and creases by stimulating an increase in the production of collagen. Collagen is the natural building block of firm, youthful skin. Through a series of three treatment sessions, Sculptra continues to trigger more and more collagen growth to restore volume to the face naturally.

Sculptra is particularly effective in filling and smoothing deep folds, such as marionette lines running from the nose to the chin.

What Can I Expect During My Sculptra Treatments?

After your consultation with Dr. Kahng, during which he will examine your skin, discuss your facial concerns, and ensure you are a candidate for Sculptra, we will begin by cleansing your skin.

We will then map the injection sites where we will inject Sculptra to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. If you prefer it, we will apply a topical numbing cream. Sculptra is then injected deeper into the skin structure using precise, careful injections to fill the hollow areas and smooth away deeper facial wrinkles and folds.

Sculptra treatments are short and cause little to no discomfort. The exact time your Sculptra treatment will take depends on the area or areas being treated. Generally, injections take half an hour to forty-five minutes to complete.

What Areas Can Be Treated with Sculptra?

Sculptra can be used to treat a number of facial areas for those who are experiencing signs of age, facial volume loss, deeper lines and creases, and wrinkles. Sculptra can effectively treat the following facial areas:

  • Marionette lines (deep folds between the nose and mouth)
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Hollow area around the chin
  • A lack of definition in the jawline
  • Hollow temples
  • Chin wrinkles

What is Recovery Like After Sculptra Treatments?

One of the many benefits of Sculptra is that there is no required downtime or recovery period after Sculptra treatments. The treatment is short and relatively painless. Most people can return right away to their usual activities after their Sculptra treatment. However, you may experience some swelling, bruising, or other mild side effects like these, but this should subside within a few days. You can apply cold packs to and massage the treatment areas to help speed the recovery process. Be sure to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds until any redness or swelling has resolved.

The Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra is a popular dermal filler that provides volume, smooths away deep facial lines and creases, and achieves a refreshed, rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. Benefits include:

  • Significant facial rejuvenation without surgery
  • Long-lasting results (up to two years)
  • Relatively painless, short procedure
  • Minimal side effects
  • Minimally-invasive injectable procedure
  • No downtime or significant recovery period
  • Natural-looking, rejuvenated results

How Long Will it Take to See Results After Sculptra Treatments?

Because Sculptra uniquely works with your body to produce collagen growth and naturally rebuild and remodel your skin, the results may take some time. You will see immediate initial results, but the full extent of the results may take 1-2 months to be completely realized.

You will be able to enjoy your new, youthful appearance, smoother, fuller skin, and beautifully rejuvenated face for about two years before needing a maintenance visit.
