Many skin rejuvenation treatments promise a quick fix with temporary results. But for men and women who are searching for gradual improvement and long-lasting results, we offer Sculptra® at Cosmetic Surgical Arts.
With locations in Lynnwood and Mount Vernon in Washington, Cosmetic Surgical Arts is led by Dr. Don Wortham. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how Sculptra® can erase the years from your face over time for a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance that lasts.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, a compound that helps replace collagen that is lost as the skin ages. Collagen adds shape and structure to the skin, and it is natural for the production of this essential protein to decrease during the natural aging process. While most dermal fillers are formulated to volumize the skin, only Sculptra® provides subtle, gradual enhancement over time for results that last.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Like most dermal fillers, Sculptra® is injected underneath the skin with a fine needle in a series of small injections. On average, about three treatment sessions over the course of a few months can create results that last for up to two years in many patients. Sculptra® works within the deep dermis of your skin, replenishing lost collagen and reversing the signs of aging from your face while maintaining your natural appearance.
Are There Any Side Effects?
When administered by a medical professional, this filler is a safe and effective treatment with minimal side effects such as bruising, swelling, redness, and itching at injection sites. These are temporary and usually subside within one to two days after treatment. Poly-L-lactic acid is easily recognized by the body and typically presents no adverse reactions. All possible risks will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
Several factors determine your candidacy for this treatment, including:
- Your health
- Medical history
- Treatment expectations
- Aesthetic goals
Patients who have contraindicating medical conditions or who are seeking more dramatic results may be advised to seek alternative forms of treatment. Those who either do not want or do not qualify for extensive skin rejuvenation procedures and who are in good health with realistic expectations and goals tend to be ideal candidates.
Our medical team will advise you on how many treatment sessions you may need as well as how to add longevity to your results. Contact Cosmetic Surgical Arts today to schedule a consultation and find out how Sculptra® can help reverse your visible signs of aging gradually for results that last.
