What is Sculptra?
Loss of volume happens during the natural aging process, especially in the face, as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. Our skilled injectors use Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for longer-lasting and deeper volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to restoring the contour of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes called smile or laugh lines) that go from the edges of the nose to the corners of the lips. With its unique formula approved by the FDA, Sculptra prompts the natural production of collagen in your body, so even after you stop getting treatments, your complexion should be stronger and healthier compared to before the treatments. Schedule an appointment for a consultation at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & MedSpa in Tacoma, WA, to learn more about the advantages of this dermal filler.

Am I a Candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra is ideal for anyone who wants to add fullness to their cheeks without implants and surgery. Some candidates may have naturally hollow cheeks, whereas other patients have full cheeks that deflated with age. Sculptra can also help to fill shallow to severe facial wrinkles and lines, including chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra helps to prompt the natural production of collagen in the skin, most patients will see an improvement in the overall health and appearance of their skin.
How Does Sculptra Work?
After your consultation to develop your custom plan for treatment, you will receive your Sculptra injections in our minor procedure rooms. The injector may apply numbing cream or a local anesthetic prior to cleaning and marking the sites to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, the filler will be injected down to the deeper layers of the skin at the chosen areas of the face. For best results, a number of treatments may be required spread about 6-8 weeks apart between sessions.
What Results Can I Expect from Sculptra?
Following your appointment, you may experience mild or moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection areas that should heal naturally in several days. For faster healing, you can apply cold packs to the injected areas. You should limit UV exposure after your treatment and use sunscreen. Most patients will notice visible improvements immediately following their appointment, with final results developing after 3 – 5 months when the natural production of collagen improves the health of the skin. When performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, a patient's results may be visible for as long as two years.
