Designed to improve facial volume loss and hollow appearance in the temples, midface and lower facial regions, Sculptra® can be an excellent dermal filler for patients who have experienced facial fat loss (lipoatrophy). This FDA-approved injectable treatment is designed to improve sunken and/or hollow appearances in the cheek and eye regions that can occur for a variety of different reasons. Sculptra® is able to stimulate natural collagen production in the skin which can lead to a gradual improvement of results long after treatment. With this popular dermal filler, Dr. Louis Bucky and our experienced team of nurse injectors can help you correct the effects of facial fat loss and achieve a more youthful, contoured facial aesthetic.
The Sculptra® Treatment
Composed of poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra® takes time to gradually correct depressions in the skin as it stimulates collagen production to replace fat that has been lost. During treatment, Sculptra® will be injected into targeted areas with a fine needle. The entire process typically takes about 30 minutes to complete, but this can vary depending on the number of injections administered. Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results, and patients with severe facial fat loss may even require three to six treatment sessions.
Sculptra® Recovery and Results
Most patients are able to return to normal daily routines after their Sculptra® treatment, but some minor swelling, redness, and bruising can typically be expected for a few days following the procedure. Sculptra® results generally do not appear immediately, but they should gradually improve over time as new collagen continues to grow. Results can be long-lasting, and in some cases results have been known to last up to two years. When the effects of Sculptra® eventually begin to fade, maintenance treatments may be necessary.
