Look Natural, Stay Beautiful
Youthful skin starts within! Sculptra® aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Scultpra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore it’s inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost due to aging.
Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for both younger and older clients with a healthy immune system as a one time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.
Like most women (and many men), you’re likely feeling a little discouraged with the way gravity has taken a toll on your once plump, tight, and wrinkle-free face. And for most of us, it doesn’t end there. A sagging jawline, neck, and deeply wrinkled chest are also terribly common with age.
We already know that Botox can be a pretty incredible and natural-looking solution for wrinkles. Dermal fillers are also a godsend when it comes to reversing the signs of aging. From filling in deep folds around the mouth to restoring lost volume in the lips, cheeks, temples, and under the eyes, dermal fillers like Restylane-L, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Voluma can take years off your face – and still allow you to look like you.
But sometimes, Botox and filler aren’t enough. Whether it’s a result of dramatic weight loss or simply just getting older, there are patients who lack the structure, support, and volume in their face that’s necessary for fillers to make a desired difference in their appearance. These patients need a “framework” to which Hyaluronic Acid fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, etc.) can be layered on top.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra acts as a bio-activator and extremely powerful collagen stimulator. It stimulates your own collagen, allowing tissue to volumize gradually. Over time, the Poly-L-Lactic Acid dissipates as your own tissue takes its place. Since the product triggers your body to build its own collagen, results are not immediate and can take anywhere from 4-6 months.
Who is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
If you’re concerned with hollowness and/or loss of volume due to aging, weight loss, etc. you’re most likely a candidate for Sculptra. While most Sculptra patients are middle-aged, men and women as young as 25 and as old as 75 have experienced success from treatment too. We require a quick consultation prior to treatment to be sure that Sculptra is the right treatment for you.
What Areas can be Treated?
Sunken cheeks and temples are by far the most common areas treated. However, many patients see great benefits from Sculptra when injected in the chin and the jawline too. Even more, many women are choosing to reverse the signs of aging on their chests by having Sculptra injected in their chest wrinkles and folds.
How Much Does Sculptra Cost & How Much Will I Need?
A complimentary 20-minute consultation is required to determine if you’re a good candidate for treatment. From there, vials are $850 each. For younger patients, we carry single syringe treatments that are $125.00 per syringe. The general rule of thumb for Sculptra is one vial per decade of life. So if you’re in your 40’s, you will most likely need 4 vials. There are exceptions to this rule depending upon volume loss.
