Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable filler that smooths away midface wrinkles while enhancing your overall skin quality. With 25% of collagen lost by age 45, it’s no surprise that men and women all around the globe are looking for ways to restore their facial volume and firmness. Sculptra® in Indianapolis is perfect if you’re looking to revitalize your skin and enjoy a more youthful appearance.
What Is Sculptra®?
Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra® is an injectable collagen stimulator. It gradually and naturally supplements the body’s natural production of collagen, rejuvenating the facial skin. Collagen is a protein in the body that is utilized to support cells and tissue growth. Thanks to Sculptra®’s poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) formula, it’s able to restore structure to the skin tissues to reduce the appearance of moderate and harsh facial wrinkles.
Good Candidates for Sculptra®
Sculptra® is an ideal treatment for patients who are looking to get rid of parentheses lines, harsh nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and smoker’s lines. It’s also an excellent option for treating facial volume loss. This treatment can be used on both men and women of all ages. It is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.
What Does a Sculptra® Treatment Involve?
The Sculptra® procedure is relatively quick, taking as little as 20 or 30 minutes per session. The procedure starts with the careful cleansing of the treatment areas to remove any buildup of grime or oil on the skin.
A numbing cream is applied to help make sure that the procedure is as pain-free as possible. Next, a fine needle is used to place strategic injections of Sculptra into the desired treatment areas.
What to Expect After a Sculptra® Treatment
There is very minimal downtime/recovery time for this cosmetic procedure, allowing you to return to work directly after your treatment session. You may experience some slight redness or swelling at the injection sites; these issues will dissipate after a few days. You should avoid strenuous activities and direct sunlight for the first few days following your Sculptra® treatment.
Because Sculptra® relies on stimulating the collagen production in your body to naturally boost your facial volume, you can expect it to take more time than your average dermal filler. Most patients will start to see noticeable results within three to four months after their initial Sculptra® treatment.
However, Sculptra® results can be seen for up to two years or longer and look incredibly natural. While some patients do see noticeable results after their first treatment session, most will need to undergo two to three treatment sessions to reach their desired results.
The total price of Sculptra® treatment is going to differ widely depending on a number of factors. Some of these include the size of the treatment site and the number of treatment sessions that you undergo. It’s best to contact Chegar Facial Plastic Surgery and schedule a consultation to discuss the estimated treatment price for your unique case.
