A More Radiant You
At our med spa in Charlotte Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic treatment that helps stimulate collagen growth in the skin to restore lost volume and improve skin texture. It is made from a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body.
Sculptra is primarily used to treat the signs of aging found in the face, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss, and can be used on other areas of the body, such as the buttocks and thighs, to improve skin texture and firmness.
The Secret to Aging Gracefully
Sculptra helps add volume and fullness to the face, stimulates collagen production, and provides natural-looking, long-lasting results in a variety of areas, including cheeks, temples, jawline, and chin. Sculptra requires minimal downtime and is FDA-approved. Good candidates for Sculptra include those who:
It's important to discuss your medical background during your consultation to determine if Sculptra is the proper treatment for you and to create a customized treatment plan that accomplishes your goals.
A Collagen-Boosting Solution
At Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte, we strive to ensure our patients are comfortable and well-informed. We will never rush you into making a decision prematurely; most of our consultations last over forty-five minutes to give you ample time to ask questions and explore all of your options. During your Sculptra consultation, one of our aesthetic specialists will help you decide if Sculptra is right for you. They will also get an understanding of your cosmetic goals and how many units of Sculptra you will need to achieve those goals. Once this information is collected, they can give you accurate information on pricing, recovery, aftercare, and when you should schedule your next visit.
Volume and Elastin Restoration
When you arrive for a treatment with Sculptra Charlotte aesthetic specialists will thoroughly clean the treatment area before marking the areas that will receive injections. Depending on your comfort level and the area being treated, your aesthetic specialist may apply a numbing cream or administer a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the injections. Using a fine-gauge needle, your aesthetic specialist will inject Sculptra into the marked areas. They may massage the area to distribute the product evenly and ensure it settles in the desired location.
Smooth, Healthy Skin
Sculptra continuously improves your skin’s collagen and elastin levels for up to two years. Most patients return for touch-up treatments every few months to prolong results and keep their skin healthy and rejuvenated.
A Natural-Looking Lift
You may experience some redness or light swelling in the first twenty-four hours after your Sculptra injections. This should subside by the end of the first week. Sculptra takes time to promote your body's collagen and elastin production so that you will see continuous improvement for up to two years.
Your aesthetic specialist will likely inform you to regularly massage your face where you received Sculptra injections to break up the product and ensure it distributes evenly. We recommend avoiding high temperatures, strenuous activity, and direct sun exposure for the first day or two after your treatments.
The cost of Sculptra treatments varies per individual due to the amount of the product needed and the placement of the injections. Schedule your consultation to receive more accurate pricing, payment, and financing information. Unfortunately, Sculptra is not considered medically necessary and is not covered by insurance.
Common side effects of Sculptra include swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically subside within the first week after treatment. Uncommon side effects may include headaches or infection.
Sculptra is typically administered over a series of treatments spaced several weeks or even months apart to achieve the desired results. Your aesthetic specialist will create a treatment plan that is customized to your needs during your Sculptra consultation.
The injections themselves can cause some slight discomfort, but our aesthetic specialists can use a numbing cream or local anesthetic to minimize any pain or discomfort.
