What is Sculptra?

Individuals who are looking for a subtle, non-invasive way to correct a sullen, sunken look and breathe new life into their appearance should consider Sculptra®. FDA-approved in 2009, Sculptra is an injectable anti-aging treatment unlike any other. This product provides results gradually over time by replacing lost collagen and promoting its production. The full results of treatment typically last over two years. Because the results of Sculptra are both long-term and short-term, it provides patients with changes that are refined, gradual, and natural-looking. Sculptra is a subtly elegant solution to lost facial volume.

What Can Sculptra Treat?

  • Lost facial volume
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Deep lines, creases, and folds
  • Sharp cheekbones

How Sculptra Works

Sculptra is comprised primarily of poly-L-lactic, or PLLA. During treatment, this substance is injected deep into the dermis — the innermost layer of the skin. Once PLLA floods the dermis, it pushes up and swells the skin. 

Over time, the PLLA microparticles begin to replace collagen in the deep dermis, creating a strong, stable collagen framework. This supports, tightens, and volumizes the skin, making it look and feel healthier and more youthful.

Holistically Assessing Your Skin

Dr. Ramirez Gavidia takes a holistic approach to every service he provides, taking a patient’s entire appearance into consideration and combining procedures to achieve the most comprehensive and balanced result possible.

He never provides just one procedure; rather, he will perform different procedures together to achieve overall improvement. 

Sculptra Treatment Details

Before your Sculptra treatment, we will numb your skin to help keep you comfortable during the injections. The injection sites will be carefully massaged to ensure that the Sculptra solution is evenly distributed throughout the treatment area.

Sculptra typically works best with 2-3 treatments spaced 6-10 weeks apart. While it takes between 45-90 days to see the full results of treatment, these results tend to last at least two years.

Following each Sculptra treatment, you may experience slight bruising and mild-to-moderate swelling. Fortunately, these side effects usually subside within two days of receiving injections.
