Sculptra® is one of the first injectable treatments to address the primary cause of aging: a loss of natural collagen. With Sculptra® injections at Vein and Body Specialists, patients can stimulate collagen production to achieve long-lasting anti-aging benefits. We offer this and other injectable treatments to the residents of Norwalk, Sandusky, Fremont and the nearby areas of Ohio.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable treatment that stimulates natural collagen production to address signs of aging in the face. As we age, the body produces less collagen, which eventually leads to volume loss and the development of lines and wrinkles. The Sculptra® formula contains poly-L-lactic acid, an ingredient that stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. Upon injection, the Sculptra® formula restores subtle volume to the skin while also stimulating collagen production for long-term benefits. It is an effective treatment for addressing smile lines, marionette lines and chin wrinkles.
Benefits of Sculptra®
With the ability to produce natural rejuvenation in the skin, Sculptra® offers many unique benefits as an injectable treatment. These benefits include:
- Instantly restore subtle volume to the face
- Stimulate collagen production for long-lasting skin rejuvenation
- Reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines and chin wrinkles
- Quick, convenient treatment
- No downtime
How is Sculptra® Administered?
Using a very fine needle, the Sculptra® formula is injected into your desired treatment areas. A numbing agent can be applied prior to treatment to minimize any possible discomfort, although most patients do not find it necessary. The number and location of injections will depend on the severity of your wrinkles and your particular cosmetic goals. Treatment takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Afterwards, there is absolutely no downtime and you can return to your normal activities immediately. You may experience some temporary redness, swelling or bruising from the injections, which typically fade within a few days. Additionally, we’ll recommend avoiding sunlight and massaging the skin in the days following treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Sculptra®?
After Sculptra® injections, you may notice subtle results immediately after treatment, but full results will not be visible until collagen production increases in the body. You can expect to notice the full results of treatment within three or four months of your final Sculptra® treatment. We typically recommend a series of three treatment sessions for optimal results. Results are clinically proven to last up to two years or longer.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
The cost of your Sculptra® treatment can vary depending upon your goals and the amount of Sculptra® injections necessary to help you achieve them. We will always ensure that you know the cost upfront and will work with you to determine a plan that is both affordable and effective. We offer financing options such as deposits on accounts prior to treatment and CareCredit®, and we also accept credit cards (Master and Visa).
