Sculptra® is a unique injectable treatment that can improve the quality of your skin over time. At Cope Cosmetic Dermatology, we offer Sculptra as a way to achieve long-lasting anti-aging results.

What is Sculptra?

As you age, your body’s production of collagen begins to slow down, resulting in less support for your skin. As your skin loses support, it begins to sag and wrinkle. Sculptra is a dermal filler made with poly-L-lactic acid, a molecule that can stimulate your skin to produce new collagen. When Sculptra is first injected, it restores volume with a natural-feeling gel (similar to hyaluronic acid fillers). Then, it begins to stimulate new collagen. As the product fades, new collagen takes its place for long-lasting, natural improvement in your aging signs.

What Are the Benefits of Sculptra?

Sculptra is unique from other dermal fillers which simply replace volume with hyaluronic acid. Sculptra offers greater benefits for patients looking for longer-term improvement in aging signs. Sculptra can be used for a variety of treatment areas, including:

  • Cheekbones
  • Cheek hollows
  • Mid-face
  • Chin augmentation
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Temples

The biggest benefit of Sculptra is that the results last much longer than other fillers and it improves your skin’s natural structure and quality. For patients who want to get the most out of their anti-aging treatments, Sculptra is one of the best options available.

What Can I Expect From Sculptra Treatment?

Sculptra can be administered in a quick, 15-minute appointment. To begin, you’ll meet with our experienced injectors to discuss your goals and the right approach with Sculptra. Then, your treatment area will be cleansed and sterilized. Your injector will place the product in your skin with a very fine needle. You’ll see improvement right away with Sculptra and you can ensure you get the results you want before you leave. Once complete, you can return home.

Sculptra Maintenance

It’s common to have some light redness and sensitivity after your Sculptra injection session, but this subsides quickly. Make sure to avoid exercising or heavy lifting after Sculptra, as well as hot environments like the shower or sauna. If you have swelling, you can apply a protected cold pack for 15 minutes at a time.

It can take around 6 weeks for your body to begin producing new collagen and you’ll see final results emerge within a few months. You can return for additional injections at 2-4 weeks depending on your goals. Our team will ensure you understand your ideal treatment plan and what to expect.
