Sculptra® Dermal Filler

Helps Restore Lost Facial Volume By Stimulating Your Body To Increase Its Production Of Collagen, The Material That Gives Your Skin Its Thickness And Fullness.

Sculptra® injections help correct some of the most common signs of facial aging.

Visible facial aging can be largely attributed to the loss of collagen supporting structures including; bone, muscle, fat pads, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These changes alter facial volume and proportions between the upper and lower face. Declining volume in the upper face (cheeks, temples) and more volume in the lower face is typical of an aging face. Elastin is a particularly important skin componet, it keeps your skin taught against the underlying foundation, and hyaluronic acid cushions and hydrates the skin. Sculptra® “lifts” your skin helping your body create more collagen and elastin, which can replicate the appearance of a younger face.

Sculptra® is described as a volumizer, it improves your appearance in different ways than other dermal fillers that are predominately composed of hyaluronic acid. Sculptra® is composed of poly-L-lactic acid which enhances your appearance by stimulating your skin to increase collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production. Collagen is a key component of the dermal layer of your skin. Elastin (think elasticity and tightness of your skin) resides within your collagen, as does hyaluronic acid. Sculptra® works deep in your dermis to re-energize natural production of your dermal skin layer, the foundation of your skin. This restores the lattice like structure that holds your epidermis firm and smooth.

Sculptra® can take a few months to reach its maximum effect as your body ramps up dermal production. It is described as “natural, gradual and long lasting. The effects of Sculptra® can last as long as two years.

Sculptra® Dermal Filler Frequently Asked Questions

What To Expect During Your Sculptra® Treatment

ANSWER: Sculptra® is delivered into your skin with a series of injections. Most people will get three treatment sessions spaced about two months apart. Each treatment session will take thirty to forty-five minutes. Immediately after each treatment you may have bruising and swelling. In most cases, there is very little downtime, but you don’t want to schedule Sculptra® injections immediately before a big event (e.g. wedding pictures, or big presentation). When Sculptra is placed into your dermis it stimulates your skin to increase production of dermal structures. Some people us the term “Sculptra glow” to describe changes in skin tone and texture. Maximum effects of Sculptra can take a few months. Sculptra creates a natural, gradual, long lasting improvement of your appearance.

The most common post injection effects are: swelling, tenderness, redness, bruising, itching and lumps.

Immediately after the treatment you may want to use an ice pack to reduce swelling and the risk of bruising. Spa 35 recommends you massage the treated areas for five minutes a day, five times a day for five days to maximize your results.

How much does Sculptra® cost?

ANSWER: You should budget $2,500 to $5,000 for your Sculptra sessions. Two years after the end of your initial treatments you may want to have another treatment to maintain the results from your initial treatment sessions.

How does Sculptra® work?

ANSWER: Sculptra helps restore lost facial volume by stimulating your body to increase its production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, the materials that gives your skin its thickness and fullness. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid and injected into the dermis. This stimulates your fibroblasts to create more dermal material. A thicker dermis provides better support for your epidermis and changes the light reflectivity of your skin for a more youthful appearance.

Are Scuptra® injections a good choice for me?

ANSWER: The people who benefit the most from Sculptra® are healthy individuals who monitor their lifestyle choices to maintain good skin quality (limited sun exposure, no smoking, exercise etc.). A consultation is necessary to provide a detailed opinion on how Sculptra® might help you reach your aesthetic goals. This allows you and the Spa 35 team to discuss your cosmetic goals, lifestyle, budget, health status and other factors to create the optimum treatment plan for you.

Will Sculptra® make me look unnatural?

ANSWER: Since Sculptra® works by stimulating your body to produce collagen and other dermal structures, many people believe it provides a more natural looking outcome than alternative dermal fillers.
