What is Sculptra?

While most patients are familiar with lines and wrinkles as primary signs of aging, there is another more subtle foe that can cause one to appear older than one feels: volume loss. With time, the cheeks, jawline, and temples can produce a hollow look that compromises your appearance. 

Sculptra was created specifically to deal with this cosmetic issue. Once injected, it helps restore fuller, rounder, and more youthful contours, boosting your self-confidence. Sculptra is FDA-approved for volume restoration not only in the face but in the buttocks as well for a non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). Results with Sculptra in Redwood City can last 2-5 years, unlike many other dermal fillers on the market.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra is a dermal filler categorized as a collagen synthesizer. Biocompatible and biodegradable, it is made with poly-L-lactic acid, the same compound created by the body after muscle exercise. When introduced to areas of the skin that have grown depleted with age, Sculptra creates a brand new scaffolding that supports healthy skin tissue.

While Sculptra in Redwood City works in this way to immediately provide visible improvement by adding volume, it also works over time to regenerate collagen reserves. Unlike many of the other dermal fillers on the market, Sculptra results can continue to impress for years to come.

Who Makes an Ideal Candidate for Treatment?

Sculptra is an excellent solution for patients who, due to aging or massive weight loss, have noticed a reduction in volume in the jawline, cheeks, or temples and who are seeking a non-invasive method of improving their appearance and self-image. In general, good candidates for dermal fillers are mentally and physically healthy. They have realistic expectations for their results based on a private consultation with our caring team.

What Can I Expect During My Session?

A typical Sculptra session takes 20-30 minutes and is performed in the privacy of our comfortable office suites. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin prior to your injections to ensure a stress-free experience. Next, Sculptra is injected into carefully selected areas that require a subtle boost in volume. Afterward, the product is gently massaged into the skin to ensure it is well-absorbed.

How Many Sculptra Sessions Will I Need?

Most patients will require several Sculptra appointments to achieve their ideal cosmetic results. Injections can be spaced out several weeks apart, with the majority of patients requiring 2-7 visits. Each client is unique, however, and only a detailed consultation with our skilled practitioners can shed light on exactly how many units of Sculptra will be needed to accomplish your desired changes.

Is There Any Downtime with Sculptra?

Sculptra is non-surgical and non-invasive, so there is no recovery or downtime necessary. Minor swelling, redness, or tenderness may occur at the injection sites, but these side effects can be well-controlled with an ice pack applied to the skin for short periods of time. Patients should refrain from applying makeup for several hours after their treatment. Tanning lamps, UV rays, and intense heat should be avoided until any facial redness and swelling have dissipated.
