As you age, it’s normal to experience changes in the appearance of your skin, particularly your face. While self-acceptance is an important part of anybody’s definition of beauty, cosmetic treatments are helpful as well. For those who want to restore facial volume and treat deep lines and folds, Sculptra offers an excellent solution with results lasting up to two years.

Sculptra is an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). PLLA is a biocompatible substance that serves to stimulate the production of collagen, one of the most important proteins involved in keeping your skin healthy and youthful. Sculptra helps to restore a fuller, more youthful appearance to your face, particularly in the areas of smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. In addition, Sculptra can be used to improve skin appearance in other parts of your body.

What should I expect at my appointment?

You will initially meet with the team at JDV Med Spa to review your medical history and discuss your desired results, so you can develop a collaborative plan of care. During treatment, the team marks the injection sites on your face and prepares the area to receive the injection. In order to minimize discomfort, they may use a topical anesthetic.

Once the team makes the preparations, they inject the product into your skin in the desired areas. They use multiple injections in order to reach all of the targeted sites. Sculptra is a noninvasive procedure, and you should be able to return to your normal activities right after treatment.

Are there any side effects of Sculptra?

Most people tolerate Sculptra quite well. However, you may notice some symptoms at the injection sites, including:

  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Bleeding
  • Redness
  • Bumps
  • Itching

You may be advised to apply a cold pack to the injection area to minimize symptoms. The team at JDV Med Spa works with you throughout the process to ensure your comfort and to create the best results.
