Sculptra™ in Scottsdale
As we age, our body naturally creates less collagen, the skin component responsible for strength and elasticity. The decrease in collagen leads to the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and hollowness on our faces. To counter that, a customized cosmetic treatment plan can be developed for you, which might include botulinum toxin or other longer lasting fillers and injectibles like Sculptra or Radiesse®.
Sculptra™ is a popular option for restoring a more youthful look to the face using wrinkle fillers and is a collagen regeneration product. It is an FDA approved soft tissue filler that stimulates your skin’s fibroblasts to produce new collagen, thereby reversing the loss of the skin’s fullness. It is used to fill and recontour areas where underlying supportive collagen and fat tissue have diminished with age or have been damaged by injury or disease. Sculptra™ is most often used to cheek hollows, smile lines, and depressions around the eyes. It is also used to restore fullness to the hands for a natural, younger appearance.
Your Sculptra™ Treatment
Sculptra™ treatments consist of a simple series of injections into the deeper layers of skin. Each treatment takes only minutes to perform and is usually done in a series of two or three sessions. Side effects include short term bruising, redness, soreness, and slight swelling. There is very little downtime.
The results of Sculptra™ injections are not immediate. However, the effects of the treatments are enduring and will continue to improve. Skin thickness can increase over the course of several weeks and may require a second or third treatment to touch up the area. Unlike other absorbable injectables that last only a few months, the benefits of Sculptra™ can last up to three years.
Sculptra™ Cellulite Treatment
Using Sculptra™ with a combination of PRF on cellulite helps stimulate the body to create new collagen to fill up the dimples and smooth out the skin. This treatment is minimally invasive and provides natural-looking volume enhancing results. You can expect results from the PRF Sculptra™ treatment to be apparent in about four to six weeks and can last for up to two years, depending on the elasticity of your skin.
