Sculptra® is a unique injectable treatment that can stimulate collagen production in the skin to produce long-lasting rejuvenation benefits. Residents of Kerrville, San Antonio and Houston, TX, can find this and other effective injectable treatments at Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
What is Sculptra®?
Collagen is a protein in the skin that helps give the skin structure, helping it remain voluminous and youthful. Unfortunately, collagen is lost as we age, resulting in wrinkles, volume loss, and sagging skin. Sculptra® is an injectable treatment that stimulates collagen production in the body to provide the skin with long-lasting rejuvenation benefits. The Sculptra® formula is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, an ingredient that is safely absorbed by the body. As it is absorbed, the body produces collagen to replace it, resulting in a reduction in facial wrinkles and a more youthful appearance.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
The cost of a Sculptra® treatment is about $775. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Sculptra® Treatment Like?
Sculptra® and other injectable treatments are minimally invasive, and don’t require any anesthetic for the procedure. During the treatment, a few injections of the Sculptra® formula will be administered to the desired treatment area. You may feel a pinch during the injection, but it is tolerable. Once the injections are finished, your treatment will be complete.
Is There Any Downtime After Sculptra®?
There is no downtime required after Sculptra®, and you will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. This is why Sculptra® and other injectable treatments are commonly referred to as “lunchtime” solutions. Patients may notice minor swelling, redness or bruising around the injection site, but these effects typically fade within just a few days of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Sculptra®?
The results from Sculptra® may not be visible for a few months, as it can take time for the body to create new collagen and for collagen to become implemented into the skin. Multiple treatments are often necessary, and we typically recommend a series of three treatment sessions for optimal results. At this rate, patients will notice optimal results just a few months after their final treatment. However, the results from Sculptra® are clinically proven to last up to two years or longer.
