Sculptra® works by helping to replenish collagen in the body. Collagen is a naturally occurring substance in the body which is responsible for providing the skin’s youthful glow and radiance. Over time, collagen production slows down resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. In comparison to traditional hyaluronic acid fillers which are used to fill specific parts of the face, Sculptra® addresses volume loss from deep fat throughout the face. Sculptra® works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, providing an overall refreshed appearance with long-lasting results (approximately 2-4 years).
Sculptra® will provide you with a natural rejuvenated effect without surgery and can be used to help stimulate collagen production in the face, back of the hands, upper inner arms, and inner thighs. Schedule your consultation today to achieve a more youthful appearance with no downtime.
Sculptra® Treatment Indications
Sculptra® can be injected into the inner arms , hips and thighs to address crepey skin by boosting collagen production.
Sculptra® can be injected in the lower areas of the face where volume loss cannot be addressed with dermal fillers.
Sculptra® can be injected into the buttock to tighten the skin and improve volume loss.
Sculptra® is an advanced procedure that requires an experienced Dermatologist such as Dr. Bailey to advise on where Sculptra® should be placed and if it is right for you. At FCP Dermatology, only Dr. Bailey injects Sculptra®. She will discuss with you where the product is best placed and if you are a good candidate. Sculptra® can be used to help stimulate collagen production in the face, back of the hands, upper inner arms, and inner thighs.
Sculptra® treatments are performed in a series of 3 treatments, spaced 1 month apart. Each treatment builds on the success of the previous treatment, and results improve gradually over time. Sculptra® results can last up to 2-4 years in the majority of patients. Some patients may wish to do maintenance treatments once a year to improve the production of collagen. As the body continues to build collagen, patients who receive Sculptra® injections will notice that fewer treatments are necessary over time.
Treatment areas include:
Sculptra® is injected by our Board-Certified Dermatologist with a small needle under the skin in areas where volume has diminished due to fat and collagen loss. Typically, the best areas to treat with Sculptra® are the cheeks, under the cheeks (sub-malar), and temples. Sculptra® is also effective for treating the crepey skin that develops in the upper inner arms and inner thighs. The Sculptra® solution contains a small amount of lidocaine which will provide patients with a numbing effect as the injections are performed. Since the results are semi-permanent, this advanced technique should only be performed by trained physicians, such as our Double Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Kristy Bailey.
Before the procedure – A cosmetic consultation will be done with our team of skin experts to determine if Sculptra® injections are the right option for you. A careful analysis of your face will be performed, and the appropriate treatment will be determined.
During the procedure – The treatment area will be thoroughly disinfected and carefully mapped out by Dr. Bailey. Sculptra® is injected with small needles beneath the skin where volume loss and crepey skin is occurring. The solution contains a small amount of lidocaine which provides a numbing effect to decrease any mild discomfort during the procedure.
After the procedure – After the Sculptra® procedure, patients must massage the treated areas for 5 minutes, 5 times a day for 5 days. This will result in the proper integration of the product into the skin for smooth and even results. The results from Sculptra® are seen over time, as the body continues to build collagen.
