Overview: Sculptra

Seattle area men and women seeking a long-lasting filler option to treat moderate to deep wrinkles may be candidates for Sculptra. It is an injectable treatment made of poly-L-lactic acid. Not only does it soften and smooth the surface layer of the skin, it helps to increase skin thickness and laxity producing a natural result for patients with facial lipoatrophy. Lynnwood cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Craig Jonov, is a fan of Sculptra because of the lasting effects it provides his patients. In fact, clinical studies show the outcomes from Sculptra can last up to two years, even after just the first treatment session. Safe and effective for most skin types, Sculptra erases lines and softens wrinkles for a younger, glowing appearance.

Technique

Sculptra works slowly and subtly to create a more youthful appearance over time. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, it improves the inner structure of your skin and helps restore facial volume lost to aging by stimulating your skin’s natural collagen production. It is a one-time treatment, but typically consists of three injection sessions over a period of several months. Results can last up to two years.

Questions about Sculptra

Is It Safe?

The FDA approved Sculptra and it has a long history of safety worldwide since 1999. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid that the human body naturally produces and doctors used for general sutures for many years. Side effects include subtle pain, bruising, swelling or redness, bruising, and a few others. Bumps sometimes occur when applying pressure to the injected area. Please talk to our team if any of these side effects concern you.

Best Age?

Individuals who wish to soften and decrease facial lines and wrinkles gradually may be candidates for Sculptra. The most common age to receive Sculptra® injections is between ages 30-55. However it is also common for patients who are younger and older than this range to receive injections.

Long Lasting?

Sculptra is different from other fillers because the results usually last up to 2 years. Sculptra is the only long lasting filler to improving the shape and look of the face, and the results appear slowly without a dramatic immediate change.
