Sculptra is one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers on the market, lasting up to two years. It replaces lost collagen in the skin, thus restoring volume and creating a youthful appearance. Sculptra is a great choice for bringing volume back to a face that is becoming hollow with age. It is virtually risk-free, requires no recovery time, and side effects are limited to potential bruising or swelling at the injection site.
Sculptra differs from other dermal fillers in that it actually works to restore the body’s own natural collagen production, rather than providing a temporary but instantaneous fix. Sculptra will not provide immediate results, but the results it does provide will last for up to two years. Generally, optimal results from Sculptra are seen after a couple of months. Three treatment sessions are usually needed for the best results.
Sculptra can take on both fine lines and deep wrinkles, and will do so in a way that is very natural-looking. The benefit of Sculptra is that because it restores collagen rather than providing a synthetic fix, the results are very natural, and you will not look as if you’ve had any “work” done. Instead, you will simply appear more youthful and rested, as if you’ve gone on a relaxing vacation. Your friends will all want to know your secret!
Only a board-certified, experienced dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac should inject Sculptra. Dr. Isaac knows exactly where to place Sculptra volumizer injections in order to achieve the best results, and she will minimize your risk of side effects such as swelling or bruising at the injection site. Sculptra injections are as painless and comfortable as possible, as Dr. Isaac uses only the thinnest needles and will administer a topical anesthetic if needed.
