WHAT IS SCULPTRA AUSTIN
Sculptra Austin is an injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid that can help replace lost collagen. This helps to provide a more natural, smoother appearance to the face without adding the extra volume and/or bulk of traditional fillers.
Since collagen is a natural substance that keeps skin soft and smooth, this is a great idea for patients who are a llittle scared of traditional fillers. Sculptra Austin is made of a synthetic material that mimics natural collagen in the body. Sculptra, once injected under the skin of the face, will begin to restore volume and shape to areas that have been naturally depleted of collagen over time. Think of Sculptra as a collagen fertilizer.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS OF MY SCULPTRA TREATMENT?
Sculptra offers gradual results that slowly soften folds and wrinkles over several weeks. Most people see a hydration effect to their skin almost immediately, while the other benefits can take several weeks. Because the sessions are spread out, and because Sculptra’s full effects progress over time, your face will seem to naturally yield a more youthful and refined appearance.
HOW MANY SCULPTRA TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Sculptra is sold by the vial, and the number of vials you need depends on the areas being treated and the amount of volume loss there. Typically most patient will do one treatment and then repeat again in 12-weeks. After that second treatment, more can be added anytime, but is usually not needed until about a year later for maintenance.
HOW LONG DOES SCULPTRA AUSTIN LAST?
Results have shown to last up to 2 years in some patients, but results will vary from person to person. You deplete the new collagen just like you do your existing collagen, so it is all based on how quickly you are aging.
Sculptra Austin Aesthetic has proven to be highly effective for a number of problems, and is commonly used for:
- Marionette lines – The lines framing the mouth
- Nasolabial folds – Smile lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Filling in cellulite dimples
- Augmenting the buttocks
WHO IS NOT A CANDIDATE FOR SCULPTRA INJECTIONS?
Patients with a history of allergic reactions, keloid formations, hypertrophic scarring, and patients with active skin infections or inflammation should avoid using Sculptra. Sculptra is great for a number of areas on the face, but use around the eyes is not recommended.
