What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a dermal filler that provides consistent and gradual age-defying results in your appearance following the first treatment. While you may not be able to notice the results of the treatment right away, people who struggle with diminished skin elasticity and volume (caused by reduced collagen production) may enjoy the benefits for two or more years as their skin’s structure is slowly rejuvenated by Sculptra®.
Benefits of Sculptra® injections?
The greatest benefit that Sculptra® offers is the duration of results after the treatment. The product gradually improves the volume of your skin on portions of your face where sun exposure and the natural aging process have taken their toll. Because of its particularly thick texture, it’s not uncommon for it to last far longer than other dermal fillers on the market.
Using Sculptra® to shape and lift your buttocks
While it is best known for what it can do to reverse facial signs of aging, Sculptra® can also be used to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking butt lift. This non-surgical alternative to the already-popular Brazilian Butt Lift has become a patient favorite at our Boca Raton practice. Men and women wanting to enhance the shape or size of their buttocks can benefit from a butt lift using fillers. The Sculptra® Butt Lift can be an effective option for those who are not interested in or do not have enough donor fat for a fat transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift) procedure. Your results from a Sculptra Butt Lift can last for up to two full years with a personalized, professional treatment at Sanctuary Medical Center in South Florida.
Sculptra® treatment areas
Sculptra® is primarily used in and around the cheeks, but a skilled doctor can produce excellent results by administering it to the jawline to lift your neck and face, and to the forehead to lift your brow or your temples to improve your eyes.
Candidates for Sculptra®
If you’re unhappy with wrinkles or fine lines around your mouth, eyes or forehead, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. Sculptra® is also a good choice if your goal is to improve the volume of sagging areas without having to resort to plastic surgery.
How does Sculptra® work?
Sculptra® is administered immediately below your skin’s surface to the areas of your face that are most affected by fat loss. The thickness of your skin naturally diminishes with age, and it works to restore this thickness. Most patients notice results after just a few treatments. Although the product will not address the underlying cause of facial fat loss, it will improve your appearance by enhancing the thickness of your skin in the targeted areas.
Before the procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment areas. The anesthetic helps to minimize discomfort during the injections. Carefully measured amounts of Sculptra® will then be delivered through a fine needle just beneath your skin’s surface. Depending on your unique situation, several treatments may be necessary in order to give you the results you desire.
How many Sculptra® treatments are needed?
Your doctor will determine how many treatments you require and how much Sculptra® will be needed at each session. People who have extensive facial fat loss may need to return to our office for as many as three to six additional treatments.
After your initial treatment, you may think that Sculptra® has immediately provided results, but this is merely caused by post-injection swelling and the water that was used to thin out the product. After several days, this swelling will disappear, and your body will absorb the water, leaving you looking the way you did prior to treatment. Sculptra® works gradually to correct lost skin volume and sagging. The doctor will see you again at our Boca Raton office in a few weeks to decide if you need more Sculptra® injections.
How long do results last?
The results of treatment will vary for each person. In one clinical study, the results were still noticeable after two years in the majority of patients.
What is the cost of Sculptra® in Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, FL?
