What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a dermal filler treatment that possesses the unique ability to restore natural collagen production to the body. Collagen is a protein vital to skin health, but unfortunately, its presence in the skin begins to rapidly decline with age. This is what leads to the development of lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. With Sculptra®, which includes a special ingredient known as poly-L-lactic acid, this problem can be reversed. In addition to providing an instant boost in skin volume, the Sculptra® formula stimulates natural collagen production in the skin. As a result, once the initial treatment wears off, the body is able to maintain your results for many months by continuously supplementing the skin with natural collagen. For these reasons, Sculptra® is a highly effective and natural-looking solution for age-related cosmetic concerns that include:
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost in Oakland?
Pricing for Sculptra® will vary depending on each patient’s cosmetic needs. Our staff will discuss all of your pricing and financing options during your initial cosmetic consultation. We encourage patients to view our financing page for more information about your payment options.
What is the Sculptra® Treatment Like?
The Sculptra® treatment is well-tolerated and quite straightforward. Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area. Once the skin is adequately numbed, the injections will be performed. You may feel a slight pinch during this process, but few patients find the treatment painful. After the injection is performed, the skin may be lightly massaged to properly distribute the Sculptra® formula beneath the skin. This entire process is typically completed in less than 30 minutes.
What Can I Expect After the Sculptra® Treatment?
Sculptra® and other dermal filler treatments are popular because they lack any formal downtime or recovery period. In fact, you will be able to return to work and all other normal activities immediately following your appointment. You may experience some minor bruising, swelling or redness in the treatment area, but these symptoms are temporary and typically fade within just a few days.
How Long Do Sculptra® Results Last?
The exact duration of your Sculptra® results will vary depending on a number of factors. Additionally, it’s important to note that with repeated Sculptra® treatments, you can maintain your results for as long as you’d like. With a single Sculptra® treatment, however, patients were clinically proven to experience results that lasted 25 months following their initial injections. This means that you can expect the results from your Sculptra® treatment to last 2 years or longer.
