Sculptra® is a unique dermal filler that gives volume to areas that have little to no definition due to aging or illness. Sculptra® injections are meant to address volume loss and gradually restore collagen to facial features. This FDA-approved product is formulated with poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic form of lactic acid.
It is recommended for patients who are seeking a moderate amount of enhancement on the face. In addition to the facial contouring enhancement, Sculptra® is also used on the body in areas of sagging or aged-looking skin. Common areas for treatment include the neck, décolleté, hands, elbows and knees. Another newly offered treatment includes the buttocks lift or sometimes known as the “Non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift” or BBL for short.
Benefits of Sculptra® Injections
As you age, you lose fullness and definition in areas such as the cheeks and chin. Sculptra® injections add volume to these areas while maintaining a soft, natural appearance. In contrast to hyaluronic acid fillers, results with Sculptra® appear gradually and are longer lasting.
Sculptra® works deep within the dermis to stimulate your collagen, and results may last up to two years. It is most commonly used to add volume to the cheeks, temples, and chin. It can also be used to correct nasolabial folds and improve scarring.
The Sculptra® Butt Lift and Body Contouring
For the longest time, the only way to augment your buttocks was to go into invasive surgeries. Now, with the use of Sculptra®, it is possible to receive a butt lift using this long-lasting filler. This filler can give the look of a lifted and full backside without the risks of major surgery.
More than just your backside and face can be treated with Sculptra®. The procedure can be used to improve the tone and appearance of muscles around your body, which include your biceps, triceps, glutes, and pecs.
What to Expect with Sculptra®
Sculptra® injections are relatively painless, and we will work to ensure your comfort during the procedure. A skilled nurse practitioner will make injections in the target areas to carefully sculpt the contours. Little to no downtime is required, however specific post-treatment care is necessary and will be discussed during your appointment. Results are typically seen within a few months.
There is a chance that patients may experience mild redness and bruising, which can be reduced by avoiding medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen and vitamin E for one week before treatment. The use of arnica gel may also help some patients avoid bruising. Over time, your body will absorb the poly-L-lactic acid, so follow-up treatments are needed to maintain results.
