Sculptra

Sculptra in Wellesley

Collagen is a skin-thickening protein that many people take for granted in their youth. With age, the body gradually produces less collagen, which in turn makes the skin lose volume and sag. One of the best ways to restore volume and elasticity to the skin is with Sculptra. This popular dermal filler is highly effective at regenerating collagen production for facial rejuvenation. Unlike other types of injectables, Sculptra produces results that last as long as two years.

Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra is best known for stimulating new collagen production to achieve smoother, fuller skin. This is especially useful for minimizing or eliminating lines and wrinkles on the mid- to lower face, including smile lines and marionette lines. Patients who use Sculptra can rejuvenate their face and refresh their appearance.

Sculptra is successful at filling in hollow or gaunt cheeks to recreate the appearance of “baby fat” for prominent, high cheekbones.

Sculptra can also address skin laxity on other parts of the body or reduce cellulite on the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment. While most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to provide volume, the active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid. This gel-like substance is a bio-stimulator absorbed by your skin that begins to kickstart new collagen production within a few days. Dr. Min Ahn or an injection specialist will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to dull the momentary pain associated with an injection.

The entire treatment is typically completed in a matter of minutes. Patients are free to resume their normal activities as soon as their appointment is complete. Some patients may notice mild bruising, but that should fade within a couple days and can be covered with cosmetics.

Sculptra’s Long-Lasting Results

Sculptra requires a little bit of patience since collagen production gradually increases in the weeks after the injection. Peak results are generally visible after a few months. Many of Dr. Ahn’s patients enjoy the slower nature of Sculptra because it is more difficult for someone to tell that a cosmetic procedure has been performed compared to the instantaneous results achieved with other types of dermal fillers.

Patients also enjoy the durability of the results. Since the volumizing results of Sculptra can last about two years, patients do not need to return for more injections as frequently as they would when using other injectable brands.

How Much Does Sculptra Cost?

Sculptra is priced per unit, with the total number of units depending on the size of the treatment area and number of areas being treated. The team at the Aesthetic Wellness Center can provide a quote after listening to your unique cosmetic goals. Since Sculptra is an elective cosmetic treatment, it is not covered by health insurance.
