Renew Your Skin from Within with Sculptra®.
Healthy, youthful-looking skin owes a lot of its luster to collagen, the most abundant protein in the body that unfortunately diminishes as we age. Collagen production can even start to fade as early as your mid-20s. When it does diminish, the results are eventually the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Sculptra® is a fantastic treatment option for those who wish to replenish the body’s natural collagen and rejuvenate their skin at a cellular level. Most collagen creams and supplements on the market today pale in comparison to the collagen-cranking power of Sculptra.
How does Sculptra work to replenish collagen?
After being injected into the area where improvement is desired, FDA-approved Sculptra begins boosting collagen production in the weeks and months following treatment. That’s thanks to a biodegradable, biocompatible, synthetic substance called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). PLLA produces strands of collagen in the body over time, resulting in the telltale signs of aging being temporarily reduced or eliminated. Sculptra’s gradualness helps to produce natural-looking results that can last up to two years in many cases.
What can Sculptra treat?
Sculptra can be used to successfully improve the appearance of the following concerns:
- Nasolabial folds (aka smile lines)
- Marionette lines
- Wrinkles on and around the chin
- Hollows of the face
- Other facial wrinkles
Can Sculptra be used on areas of the body other than the face?
Yes! Believe it or not, Sculptra can even be used as a nonsurgical butt lift. This treatment requires two to three sessions with an average of three to five vials per side (typically 10 vials per treatment). At Pristine Rejuvenation, we offer discounted package pricing for our Sculptra Butt Lifts starting at about $3,000 per treatment.
How many injections of Sculptra will I need?
Sculptra is often administered in a series of about three injections over the course of three to four months. Depending on the extent of lost collagen and your unique skin structure, additional injections may be needed to achieve optimal results. For face and neck treatments, a minimum of two to three sessions are often needed to achieve desired results. Eman Dahmani, APRN, CRNA, will discuss your personal aesthetic goals with you and map out a treatment plan that best meets your needs.
Do Sculptra injections come with any side effects?
Just as with any injectable treatment, Sculptra does come with the potential for some side effects. The most common include:
- Tenderness at injection site
- Itching sensation
- Mild bleeding
Though rare, there have been reports of allergic reactions from Sculptra injections. Eman will go over all the details at your consultation to help you determine if Sculptra is the best option for you.
When will I see the results of Sculptra?
The natural-looking results from Sculptra are made possible by the gradualness of the process of producing new collagen. You’ll begin to notice wrinkles gradually minimized and your skin’s lost volume restored over the course of a few weeks following treatment. Optimal results may take a few months as collagen continues to rev up, but most people say the wait is well worth it.
How long can I expect results from Sculptra injections to last?
Many people enjoy results that last up to two years – sometimes even longer. The exact time frame will depend on the individual and how they metabolize the product, of course. In a survey conducted, 80% of Sculptra recipients said they were happy with their results a full two years after treatment.
