Granite Bay Sculptra® Aesthetic Injections
Not into sudden changes? Sculptra® helps you keep the secret to your youthful look under wraps
Just because you want to look a little younger doesn’t mean you want to announce it to the world. That’s the catch with most fillers—facial folds disappear in a matter of minutes. That’s a total plus for many, but for those who’d rather make 100% sure no one suspects their little secret, Sculptra® deserves a serious look.
Sculptra is a popular injectable treatment that reboots collagen production to gradually smooth smile lines, nasolabial folds, and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
How Sculptra Aesthetic works to smooth facial folds for up to 2 years
We tend to lump Sculptra in with fillers, but it’s different from other fillers. Instead of a gel that sits under the skin, Sculptra is a “collagen stimulator.” Its key ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), camps out in the deeper layers of your skin, prompting it to make new collagen.
This collagen rebuilding process takes a little time (about 2 to 3 months), but here’s what you get: fewer wrinkles, less severe facial folds, and totally natural results that can last up to 2 years or longer.
What to expect with Sculptra injections in Granite Bay
Our experienced RN injector performs Sculptra injections during a quick office visit. After discussing your treatment goals, she will numb the injection sites to keep you comfortable and then inject Sculptra just beneath the skin, in the precise locations where a collagen boost is needed. After treatment, you can go right about your day—we’ll give you instructions for post-treatment care.
You’ll notice an immediate smoothing of these wrinkles, but don’t get too excited yet. This is just the liquid component of Sculptra, which your body will naturally absorb. It’s common for wrinkles to return temporarily after a few days. But, within a few weeks you will notice your skin looks and feels firmer and smoother—this is your skin on (restored) collagen.
Patients typically need 3 Sculptra treatments, spaced about 1 month apart, to achieve the desired wrinkle reduction. Final results are in place about 3 months after the first treatment.
