Sculptra® in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, FL
As we age, our skin loses collagen, resulting in lines, wrinkles, and sunken eyes and cheeks. Through proper daily skincare you can help slow the signs of aging, but it cannot stop or reverse the process. Although you may not be able to effectively treat wrinkles yourself, Sculptra® treatments offered at Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach can reduce the signs of aging and restore your skin’s youthful glow. We are proud to serve patients in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Wellington, Palm Springs, and Lake Worth.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is one of the latest advances in injectable fillers as a way to treat wrinkles and restore youthfulness to the face. Though other fillers provide instant results, a sudden change in your skin is a telltale sign to others that you have had injections. Wrinkles fade away subtly with Sculptra®, helping you achieve a fresh, youthful, and much more natural look without anyone realizing you have had anything done. FDA-approved Sculptra® is composed of synthetic poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a material that is both biocompatible and biodegradable. It is a treatment suitable for the correction of fine lines and wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and most other areas of the skin that are starting to appear hollow due to a loss of collagen.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Sculptra® works by penetrating the skin and making its way deep into the dermis, slowly and steadily restoring collagen and improving the underlying structure of your skin. As collagen is replaced, lines, wrinkles, and other sunken areas of the skin are filled and plumpness is restored. Because the structure of your skin is restored from within, you may even notice an improvement in your skin’s overall tone and texture. The results of Sculptra® injections give you healthy looking skin that appears years younger.
What Can I Expect Following Sculptra® Treatments?
Sculptra® injections are completed in-office and with a topical anesthetic. The injections can be completed quickly and with no downtime, so you can expect to resume your normal activities almost immediately. As with any treatment, side effects can vary from patient to patient, though some minor swelling or bruising can be expected but tends to subside quickly. Results can also vary, but most patients require anywhere from 3-4 treatments over the course of three to four months, and results can last for up to 2 years without any need for maintenance.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
We share pricing information during our initial consultation. The cost of Sculptra® varies based on the size of the treatment area and the amount of product required. To help ensure our patients can afford their cosmetic care we offer several financing options.
