Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sculptra | Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa | Fort Myers FLIt is now known that fat and soft tissue loss are the primary causes of a hollowed or deflated look. As we age, our skin gradually loses support as the face’s substructure of bones, muscle, connective tissue, and fat gradually starts to shrink.

Smoothing out wrinkles from the top won’t address facial deflation. You need to replace the volume that has been lost over time. Dermal fillers have done this for many years, but now we have something else to restore your youthful beauty. We are pleased to offer Sculptra, a “bio-stimulatory” filler that takes facial fillers to a new level.

What Is Sculptra?

As the name implies, Sculptra is a product that actually lets us sculpt your face. Sculptra is an injectable product that restores tissue loss by replacing lost volume with your body’s own collagen. The main ingredient in Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid, has been used for more than 25 years in dissolvable sutures, bone plates, and screws, among other things. It is long-lasting, biocompatible, and biodegradable. The best thing about Sculptra is that it is a natural augmentation that develops over several months because your own tissue has been stimulated to grow.

Sculptra Aesthetic Benefits

There are a number of benefits to choosing Sculptra Aesthetic including:

  • Allergy testing is not necessary before treatment

  • Works gradually for subtle but noticeable results

The Sculptra Injection Process

Dr. Flaharty, of Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa, performs Sculptra injections in our office. During your consultation, patients will first discuss a treatment plan to determine the number of injections needed for ideal results. Patients can go through multiple injection sessions which are typically spread apart by a few weeks. Your unique treatment plan will depend on your facial structure and goals.

During your treatment session, our staff will apply numbing cream so there is minimal discomfort. Then, Dr. Flaharty will inject Sculptra into the folds and lines of the desired treatment area. The contents of Sculptra are diluted in water before injections. This allows the body to absorb the water while the biocompatible material stimulates new collagen growth.

Side Effects of Facial Injections

Side effects of Sculptra are generally injection-related and fade within a few days. These side effects include:

  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Discomfort
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness

Sculptra Aesthetic Results

At your first treatment, you may see results immediately. This is due to swelling and the water in the product. In the days following treatment, the swelling will subside. Sculptra needs time to work so full results should be noticeable after about 6 weeks, however, can take 3 months to reach full effect. The best news is that Sculptra results are known to last longer than other fillers, up to 25 months.
