Sculptra (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is used to treat the loss of tissue beneath the skin, which can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes. Sculptra is a safe synthetic, and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of tissue loss. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions. The effects of Sculptra last over three years after completing the required number of treatments necessary to obtain your desired result. Touch up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect.
The results from Sculptra are not immediate. Sculptra provides a gradual increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas. Patients with severe fat loss may require 3-6 treatments to get desired results.Contact Us to Schedule a Consultation
The most common side effects are injection site bleeding, tenderness, redness, bruising, swelling or pain which generally last between three to seven days on average. Some people develop small bumps under the skin that may or may not be visible. These bumps tend to happen within 6-12 months of the first treatment. Usually these bumps will resolve over time by gently massaging the area.
