Restore Volume Loss
What We Love About Sculptra
Unlike traditional fillers that provide immediate volume, Sculptra works gradually over time. It is injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin, where it stimulates collagen production. This collagen-building process helps to restore facial volume, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
It is commonly used to treat areas such as sunken cheeks, hollow temples, and deep folds around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Sculptra can also improve the overall texture and tightness of the skin.
One of the key advantages of Sculptra is its longevity. While individual results may vary, the effects of Sculptra can last up to two years or more. However, multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended to achieve optimal results.
We recommend 2-3 treatments to start, and offer 10% off the second treatment because that’s how IMPORTANT it is to do more than one in the beginning!
Before & After
Everything You Need To Know
Does it hurt, and are there any side effects?
During the procedure, patients may experience a slight pinch or stinging sensation as the needle is inserted, but most people report little to no pain.
After the treatment, some patients may experience mild redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site, but these side effects are typically mild and resolve within a few hours to a few days.
How long does it take to see results, and how long do they last?
Unlike traditional fillers that provide immediate volume, Sculptra works gradually over time. Most patients start to see gradual improvements in their skin's texture and volume within a few weeks to a few months after their initial treatment.
While individual results may vary, the effects of Sculptra can last up to two years or more. However, multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended to achieve optimal results. These sessions are typically spaced several weeks apart to allow for gradual collagen stimulation and natural-looking results.
