Tired of hollow areas around the chin, cheeks, temples, or décolletage? Bawa Medical proudly offers Sculptra® dermal filler treatment in Boca Raton and Delray Beach, FL, to safely restore volume and increase collagen production with lasting results.
What Is Sculptra® Dermal Filler?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is designed to address hollowness and volume loss of the temples, jawline, and cheeks. Unlike most dermal fillers, Sculptra® is an injectable form of lactic acid, specifically polylactic acid, which is used to help tissue volumize gradually over time by stimulating the production of collagen. As an injectable treatment for the restoration of lost facial volume due to aging or illness, Sculptra® is the first injectable treatment of its kind to be approved by the FDA.
Where other injectables such as Juvéderm® and Restylane® are effective when treating wrinkles and deep folds, Sculptra® excels in the creation of the structure and volume needed by fillers to make a significant difference.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
Someone who has seen some sort of volume loss or hollowing around the temples, chin, or cheeks may be an ideal candidate for Sculptra® treatment. Any sagging skin around the knees can also be treated with Sculptra® and it can be used to boost volume to the neck and décolletage area. Many Sculptra® patients are older or have experienced significant weight loss, but almost anyone dealing with hollow areas can be a great candidate for Sculptra®.
How Are Sculptra® Injections Performed?
Performed in an office setting and taking no longer than around 20 to 30 minutes, Sculptra® treatments begin with the Sculptra® provider first marking precise injection points on your face before applying a topical anesthetic. Unlike some other dermal fillers, Sculptra® is then carefully injected under (rather than into) the skin with the use of a very fine syringe. Afterward, the treatment area will be massaged in order to effectively distribute the Sculptra® suspension throughout the area.
Sculptra® injections will need to be performed in an ongoing series of sessions, each spaced around two weeks apart. The amount of Sculptra® sessions you will require will depend on the degree of volume loss. On average, most patients require from around two to four Sculptra® treatments, to as many as seven Sculptra® treatments.
How Long Do Sculptra® Dermal Filler Results Last?
The majority of dermal fillers last around only one year, but Sculptra® produces results lasting around two to three years once a full series of treatments has been completed. Sculptra® causes new collagen to form, thereby creating longer-lasting results than other dermal filler options. After a few years, the results of Sculptra® treatment will begin to fade, however, so repeated Sculptra® treatments will be necessary in order to maintain results.
