Sculptra® Aesthetic is the first facial injectable that can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly. It replaces lost collagen to give you a more natural-looking appearance without giving you away. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David B. Brothers, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers Sculptra® for men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Smyrna, Midtown, and Gainesville.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® Aesthetic works to target the underlying causes of the signs of aging, such as collagen loss. Sculptra® Aesthetic is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments – an average of three injection sessions over a period of a few months – to produce a refined, more youthful-looking appearance. During the course of your Sculptra® Aesthetic treatments, collagen is replaced. Sculptra® Aesthetic is made of a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid is safe – absorbed naturally by the body – and has been used for years in dissolvable stitches.
Benefits of Sculptra®
Sculptra® Aesthetic has been safely used worldwide since 1999, in over 150,000 patients, under the trade names New-Fill™ and Sculptra®. In 2009, the FDA granted approval in the U.S. for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold (smile lines) contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles, which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Sculptra®?
Sculptra® Aesthetic treats shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. If you want subtle yet noticeable results, Sculptra® Aesthetic may be right for you. Sculptra® Aesthetic is injected beneath the skin and works to gradually replace lost collagen, targeting the underlying cause of the signs of facial aging.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Sculptra®?
Dr. Brothers is a recognized expert in administering Sculptra®. Finding this level of expertise is difficult, but also critical to ensuring that you achieve the best possible results. A consultation with Dr. Brothers helps you understand how Sculptra® works to reduce your lines and wrinkles.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Sculptra®?
The treatment begins by marking the points on your face where Sculptra® will be injected. Dr. Brothers uses his knowledge of skin and your personal anatomy to identify the points that will provide the best possible results. A fine gauge needle is used for the injections, so you may feel a slight pinch followed by a mild pressure as the gel enters your soft tissues.
How Long Does It Take to Administer Sculptra®?
Treatment with Sculptra® takes less than one hour. You can easily fit the appointment into your lunch break or any other time that is convenient for you.
What to Expect After Sculptra®
The active ingredient in Sculptra® works gradually. You will see some softening of the lines and wrinkles due to the gel consistency of the product. Mild bruising can occur around each injection site, and the symptoms should only last one to two days.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Sculptra®?
Because Sculptra® is injected into the skin and requires no incisions, you will not have scars because of the treatment.
When Will I See Results?
Because Sculptra® Aesthetic targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging, it can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to two years. Some visible improvements can be seen within the first few weeks of treatment, but the Sculptra® Aesthetic regimen is designed to deliver its unique effects over the course of a few months. Typically, an average of 3 treatment sessions over a period of a few months – and because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle yet noticeable results in the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds.
How Long Will the Results of Sculptra® Last?
Over time, you’ll notice changes to your face that can last up to two years.
