What is Sculptra?

Are you looking for a nonsurgical, quick way to refresh the skin, make it look younger, and bring back some of the volume that you had when you were younger? Have you tried expensive face creams and serums with little to no result? As we age the face can lose volume and the skin can start to look old, but we don’t have to live with this if we don’t want to. Sculptra is an injectable that may be the answer for you! 

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable filler made from poly-L-lactic acid, a material that can restore volume where you want a bit of plumpness in the face. It also helps to improve the structure of the skin by getting deep inside of it and restoring the collagen matrix back to its younger state. This means long-term benefits, because as new skin grows it looks younger, smoother, and softer. 

It is safe, FDA approved, and does not require allergy testing. Unlike other fillers, which may have effects that only last for a few months, the effects of Sculptra can last 2 years or more. 

What is Sculptra used for?

As we age, we all lose some volume in the facial skin, and sun and age can damage the skin down into the deep layers. Sculptra restores some of that volume and helps to fix damaged skin. It can be used in the cheeks, jowls, and temples. It can also help to soften deep folds on the face. 

You’ll start to see the effects of Sculptra within about 6 weeks. Immediately after the injection you may have some swelling and bruising for a few days. 

Sculptra can be used with other nonsurgical treatments, such as laser treatments, to give you the exact facial contours and the youthful and rejuvenated skin that you want. If you are interested in a nonsurgical way to restore volume and youth to the skin on your face, contact the offices of Dr. Gary J. Price today for a Sculptra consultation.
