After being approved by the FDA in 2004, Sculptra® quickly became one of the most popular dermal fillers in the country. With this long-lasting injectable, our team can enhance your natural beauty and diminish the appearance of many different imperfections. Sculptra® is extremely effective at combating sunken cheeks, nasolabial folds, smile lines, and a variety of other age-related blemishes.
Understanding Polylactic Acid
Every Sculptra® injection contains a concentrated dose of a unique substance known as polylactic acid. This particular type of acid is used in dozens of different medical products ranging from injectable fillers to dissolvable stitches. One of the reasons why polylactic acid is so popular in our industry is because it triggers the body’s natural healing response. Within moments of being injected into the skin, the patient’s body will flood the treatment site with restorative proteins like collagen and elastin.
Sculptra® Treatment Sessions
Most of our Sculptra® treatments take just minutes to complete. While you might be able to achieve your cosmetic goals after a single session, most patients need to have multiple treatments carried out. These appointments are generally scheduled at least a couple weeks apart so that the injections have time to settle.
Another reason why polylactic acid has become such a popular product in our industry is very few patients experience any complications. During your initial consultation, we will give you instructions on how to care for your skin in the days following your appointments.
What Can Be Treated?
Unlike many other dermal fillers, Sculptra® is quite versatile. It is the perfect option for patients who are struggling with a loss of facial fat in their cheeks and in other areas. We can also use Sculptra® to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and deeper folds throughout the face.
At Farris Plastic Surgery in Dallas, we believe that all of our patients deserve to be confident in their own skin, and that is why we are proud to offer advanced filler treatments such as Sculptra®.
