Sculptra

Sculptra is an injectable that is used to recontour the face by adding volume, creating a fuller and more youthful appearance. Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid and is designed to stimulate your body’s own collagen production over a period of 4 – 8 weeks. Usually 2 – 3 treatments are required to achieve optimal results. The effects evolve slowly and, therefore, the results are extremely natural in appearance. This procedure is particularly helpful for patients with sagging skin, multiple facial lines and for faces that have begun to ‘sink in’ at the temples or cheeks. A topical anesthetic is applied prior to the procedure and the treated areas should be massaged several times a day for five days after injection. Sculptra can last in excess of 2 years.
