For those with sagging skin and tedious wrinkles, Sculptra can deliver what you’ve been looking for: a more youthful and taut appearance. Read on to find out how Sculptra works and why you should consider this popular treatment.

What Sculptra does

As a facial filler treatment, Sculptra has the power to enhance and restore the natural structure of your skin by stimulating collagen growth. Sculptra is created using poly-L-lactic acid which is biocompatible and biodegradable. In fact, this acid is used in soft tissue implants. Sculptra is a safe and commonly used way to make all the right adjustments to your face.

What it can specifically do for you

The benefits of Sculptra are many. First, it is catered to patients who have experienced excessive volume loss and moderate to severe wrinkles. The treatment works by plumping the skin, as opposed to “filling in” those pesky lines and wrinkles. In comparison to other dermal fillers, Sculptra is far more long-lasting. In fact, it can work for up to two years! Sculptra can create a natural and youthful appearance while enhancing the texture and fullness of our skin.

The right candidate for Sculptra

For those who have lost fullness in their face or have severe wrinkles, Sculptra might be the best choice for you. it is long lasting, natural, and effective!

The Sculptra procedure

Before your Sculptra treatment, you will be asked to desist from taking any medications that have blood thinning properties. This will help lower the risk of complications and excessive bleeding. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra doesn’t include a natural numbing ingredient. Instead, Dr. Emmett will apply a topical anesthetic to help relieve discomfort during the treatment. The injections are typically given through the mouth in order to completely reach the treatment area. Each injection lasts a few minutes.
