Sculptra is a dermal filler that helps restore volume and fill out facial fillers throughout the face. In addition to its direct volumizing effects, it also helps stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, producing results that are natural and long lasting.
If you’ve lost volume in your face or have fine lines and wrinkles, Sculptra could be the perfect solution. In addition to treating the mid face area such as the cheeks, it can also lift the jowls and fill in temples that may have become hollowed.
Unlike other dermal fillers procedures, Sculptra is injected deeper, that does not mean it will be more painful.
In fact, Sculptra contains lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, helping you to remain comfortable throughout the procedure. For optimal results, Sculptra usually requires up to four treatments over a period of months.
This ensures the results reveal themselves gradually, contributing to the subtlety of treatment. With each treatment, Houston Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Sukkar will precisely inject Sculptra where it will produce the best results. And the best part? There’s absolutely no downtime, and you can return to your daily routine immediately.
Because the body will eventually absorb sculptra, the results are not permanent. When applied with precision and over a period of several months, however, the results of sculptra can last over two years—much longer than other dermal fillers.Is sculptra worth the cost? Sculptra unlike other dermal fillers can last up to 2 years. Results like these that last contribute to 85% of patients saying that sculptra is worth it.
While there is no recovery period associated with Sculptra, patients do still sometimes experience minor bruising or swelling.
If you experience this, rest assured it is perfectly normal and can be expected to subside within a week after treatment. If needed, you can get over-the-counter pain medication to combat any discomfort.
A unique aspect of Sculptra is that it requires some massaging after treatment. We will provide you comprehensive instructions in our office, but massaging helps to expedite the process if done for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days. More massaging can be done to further the process.
