Sculptra In Atlanta, Ga
Not every type of injectable is the perfect fit for every age-related issue. What corrects one person may not give the same result to someone else. And depending on the amount of collagen and volume loss, you may require a longer-lasting filler, like Sculptra® Aesthetic.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable that changes both subtly and gradually over time to help restore facial volume. It replaces lost collagen to give you a more natural-looking appearance that isn’t obvious–and it lasts longer than hyaluronic acid fillers. 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® AESTHETIC
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a biostimulatory injectable that works to target the underlying causes of the signs of aging, such as collagen loss. Sculptra® Aesthetic works gradually in a series of treatments – an average of three injection sessions over a few months–to produce a refined, more youthful-looking appearance. During 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 used for years in dissolvable stitches.
THE Benefits Of Sculptra® AESTHETIC
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 approved in the U.S. to correct shallow to deep nasolabial fold (smile lines) contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles, which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people.
Once injected, the poly-L lactic acid (PLLA) molecules are absorbed by the body to help stimulate collagen production. During this time, collagen is gradually rebuilt to restore volume to the face and plump up the look of wrinkles and folds. However, unlike other injectable products, Sculptra does not lift or add shape–it simply acts as a collagen stimulator.
Sculptra® Aesthetic can be injected into the smile and marionette lines and chin wrinkles.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Sculptra®?
Sculptra® Aesthetic treats lost facial volume and produces the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds. If you want subtle yet noticeable results, Sculptra® Aesthetic may be suitable for you. Sculptra® Aesthetic is injected beneath the skin and, throughout a series of treatments, 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®?
There’s not much to do before your injections. First, however, a consultation with Dr. Brothers and his team is recommended for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
Dr. Brothers is a recognized expert in administering Sculptra®. Finding this level of expertise is challenging yet 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® Treatment?
The treatment begins by marking the points on your face where Sculptra® will be injected. Then, Dr. Brothers and the team at Alchemy Aesthetics use knowledge of skin and anatomy to identify the areas to treat to achieve the best possible results. After the areas to be treated are numbed, 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®?
The injections are fast. Treatment with Sculptra® takes less than one hour, so you can easily fit the appointment into your lunch break or any other convenient time.
What to expect after Sculptra®?
The active ingredient in Sculptra® works gradually. You will see some initial softening of the lines and wrinkles due to the gel consistency of the product. Mild bruising and swelling can occur around each injection site, and the symptoms should only last one to two days.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Sculptra®?
No, you will not have any scars. 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?
Since Sculptra® Aesthetic targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging, it can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly, usually around the six-week mark, 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 unique effects over a few months. Typically, an average of 3 treatment sessions for 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.
