Sculptra®

About Sculptra

Lost volume happens during the natural aging process, especially in the face, as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for fuller and longer-lasting volume in the mid-face. In addition to increasing mid-face volume, Sculptra can reduce the look of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that go from the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA, Sculptra promotes natural collagen production in your body, so even after you stop getting injections, your complexion should be stronger and healthier than before the treatment. In addition to improving facial lines and wrinkles, Sculptra can also be used to add volume and a mild lift to the buttocks. Schedule an appointment for a consultation at the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa in New Orleans, LA, to discover the advantages of this treatment.

Ideal Candidates

Sculptra Aesthetic is great for anyone who wants to improve contour in their mid-face without implants and surgery. Candidates may have been born with hollow cheeks, whereas other patients have full cheeks that have deflated with age. Sculptra injections may also help to improve fine to severe facial wrinkles and lines, including marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra’s formula works to prompt the natural production of collagen in the skin, most Sculptra patients will notice an improvement in the appearance and health of their complexion.

Adding Sculptra to the buttocks has become a popular procedure known as a nonsurgical butt lift. This can be a good option if you only need a small amount of volume and lift in your buttocks. It is best used to fill in small areas of the buttocks or areas of cellulite. 

Procedure Technique

Following your consultation to develop your unique treatment plan, you will receive your injections in one of our procedure rooms. Your injector might use a local anesthetic or numbing cream prior to sterilizing and marking the sites to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, your provider will inject Sculptra into the deeper skin layers at the chosen areas of the face or butt. For longer-lasting results, your injector will perform a series of four treatments, each done at the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa around 3 weeks apart.

What To Expect

Following your appointment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection areas that should resolve on its own in several days. To encourage healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should limit UV exposure after your appointment and always use sunscreen. You may notice clear improvements immediately following your injections, with final results seen after a few months when the increased collagen production improves the health of your skin. If you have Sculptra performed in a series over 3 to 4 months, your results may be visible for as long as two years.
