Aging is inevitable. But that doesn’t mean you have to like the prospect of aging. Thanks to modern cosmetic treatments, we can reverse the internal processes that lead to unwanted signs of aging, helping you extend your youthful appearance.
Boost Your Collagen Levels With A Few Shots
Collagen is a protein found in your skin, tendons, and bones. It is responsible for your skin’s elasticity and firmness. As you age, your collagen levels naturally decrease, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Most people rely on topical collagen creams to restore their collagen levels, but collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis, so they’re not very effective. We offer Sculptra injections that boost internal collagen production and ensure dramatic results.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a facial injectable that helps to gradually replace lost collagen, giving you a more natural-looking appearance. When injected into targeted facial tissues, Sculptra stimulates natural collagen production to reverse the signs of aging and make your face look smoother, fuller, and more youthful. The results aren’t immediate, unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, but the wait is completely worth it because of the natural appearance.
How Does Sculptra Elevate Facial Contours?
Sculptra works by catalyzing your body’s innate collagen production capabilities. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together, giving your skin a firm, taut, and voluminous appearance. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in the loss of volume and structure in the face. This can cause wrinkles, sagging skin, and hollowed cheeks.
Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biodegradable synthetic polymer used in medical implants for over 30 years. Once injected, it works with your body to stimulate collagen production. Since Sculptra relies on your body’s natural collagen production capabilities, the results appear more gradually than other dermal fillers.

What Happens During My Sculptra Session?
Your Sculptra session takes place in our comfortable medical clinic. First, the expert will cleanse your face and prepare it for treatment. Next, they will select the appropriate injection sites. Sculptra is injected into the deeper layers of your skin, so the expert will use a very thin needle. You may feel a slight prickling sensation as the needle enters your skin.
Once the injection sites have been determined, the expert will inject the Sculptra into your skin. You may feel a slight burning sensation as the Sculptra is injected, but this should dissipate quickly. The expert will then massage the injection sites to help distribute the Sculptra evenly. The entire Sculptra session should take less than 30 minutes.

How Many Sculptra Treatments Do I Need?
Typically, Sculptra treatments are done every six to eight weeks, and most people need three to five treatments to achieve their desired results. The number of treatments needed will depend on the individual and the desired results.
What Are The Side Effects of Sculptra?
You may experience some redness and swelling at the injection sites, but this is normal and should subside within a few hours. The side effects are minimal and temporary.
Is There Any Downtime After Sculptra?
There is no downtime after Sculptra injections, but you should avoid strenuous activity for the first 24 hours. You should also avoid sun exposure and heat exposure for the first few days. Makeup can be applied the day after treatment.
When Will I See The Sculptra Results?
Sculptra results are not immediate, but they are long-lasting. You will likely see an initial increase in facial fullness within the first few weeks after treatment as your body begins to produce new collagen. As more collagen is produced, results will continue to improve over the next few months.
Most people see the full effect of Sculptra treatments about six months after their last injection. And because Sculptra helps your body gradually produces collagen, the results can last up to two years or more. In fact, some patients even note that their Sculptra results last for five years or more with a few touch-ups.
