What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a product that may be injected into the face in a routine office visit to simulate a scar-less facelift. The product stimulates collagen recruitment and formation in the areas that are injected, leading to improved tissue fullness. Other benefits include a lifting of the brow and resolution of nasolabial folds and jowls.
Sculptra is also a great solution for addressing congenital or post-traumatic facial asymmetry. Sculptra requires at least 3 office treatments to see optimal results, with refresher treatments recommended every 2 years.
Who is a good candidate for Sculptra?
Men and women, youthful or mature, who are looking to improve facial fullness as well as promote facial balance and harmony are good candidates for Sculptra treatment. Individuals who are not interested in surgery but are interested in rejuvenation are great candidates as well.
During the initial consultation you will discuss with Dr. Shermak what you would like to improve so she can understand your expectations and determine how to best achieve your desired result. In a later visit, the Sculptra treatment will take place. At least 3 treatments are recommended for optimal results, with at least 6 weeks between treatments.
