Sculptra is an FDA-improved, non-surgical treatment that improves your facial volume and structure over time. It works by stimulating the body’s natural supply of collagen, restoring a youthful appearance that can last up to two years.

An overview of Sculptra

Collagen is responsible for providing structure to your skin and supporting the youth-promoting properties of elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA). While elastin maintains your skin’s shape, HA keeps it hydrated. When you’re young, your collagen stores are abundant. As you grow older, however, they begin to diminish – allowing wrinkles, fine lines, and facial creases to emerge.

Once in place beneath your skin, Sculptra helps your body replenish some of the collagen it has lost. It is capable of restoring a beautifully refreshed and younger-looking appearance from the inside out. At Fenner Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we recommend Sculptra injections to men and women who want to improve the appearance of their wrinkles in a natural, long-lasting way.

What can Sculptra do for you?

Sculptra is designed to produce a subtly rejuvenated facial appearance. The treatment works gradually, as your body responds to the injectable by building fresh collagen. It produces results that are extremely natural – never overly plumped or frozen.

When done correctly, Sculptra has the power to:

  • Minimize smile lines
  • Reduce marionette lines
  • Smooth away chin wrinkles
  • Restore lost facial volume

The Sculptra procedure: What to expect during your appointment

Your Sculptra treatments will take place in our private medical spa. While you sit comfortably in a reclining chair, we will administer the Sculptra deep beneath the skin. Once in place, it will stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen over time. 

There is no downtime associated with Sculptra. As such, you will be free to return to work and your normal daily routine immediately. Most of Dr. Fenner’s patients require three to four sessions spaced three weeks apart to achieve their optimal results.

After your injections

Sculptra results appear gradually. You can expect to notice a visible improvement in your appearance due to the increased collagen within a couple of weeks, though your results won’t be considered final until a few months later. In general, you can expect your reduction in facial wrinkles and folds to last for about two years.

Potential side effects

Sculptra is safe and FDA-approved. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic material that has been used safely for years in dissolvable sutures. As such, side effects are rare when Sculptra treatments are done at a respected and experienced facility, like Fenner Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. When they do occur, they are typically mild and may include redness, bruising, tenderness and small lumps beneath the skin.
