The board-certified dermatologists at Dermatology Affiliates offer residents in Atlanta and Marietta, GA including Buckhead, East Cobb, and Midtown, Sculptra® treatments to replace lost collagen and improve the look and feel of their skin.
What Is Sculptra®?
As a synthetic injectable, Sculptra® is a treatment that is specifically designed for individuals who want to gradually improve the texture, volume, and tone of their skin. It contains poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen, the natural substance that gives skin its volume and elasticity. The result is a natural-looking and more vibrant appearance. The formula for Sculptra® is biocompatible, which means that it will not cause your body harm, and biodegradable, which means that your body will naturally break it down. Manufacturers of medical products have used poly-L-lactic acid for several years to make soft-tissue implants, dissolvable stitches, and other implants.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Sculptra® is injected under the surface of the skin where it has lost fat because of sun damage and aging. Once injected, it stimulates collagen to grow, filling in the areas that do not have enough collagen and gradually increasing the thickness of your skin. You will begin to see results within two months. Although Sculptra® is not designed to remedy the cause of fat loss in the skin, it will improve the appearance by increasing the thickness of the targeted area.
Is Skin Testing Required Prior to Being Treated With Sculptra®?
Only natural ingredients are used in the formula for Sculptra®, so no skin testing is required.
How Long Until the Results are Visible?
The skin gradually improves with Sculptra® injections, with the results becoming visible within two months.
How Many Sculptra® Treatments Are Required?
The number of Sculptra® treatments needed depend on the degree of improvement that you wish to achieve. One to three sessions are typically required for optimal results, but our team of dermatologists will recommend a tailored treatment regimen for you during your consultation.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Clinical studies show that the results from Sculptra® last for as long as two years for a majority of patients.
Can I Combine Sculptra® With Other Treatments?
Many patients achieve their aesthetic goals with several injectable and cosmetic filler products. Sculptra® can be used in combination with these treatments to help you achieve the healthy and youthful appearance that you desire.
What Is the Cost of Sculptra® Treatments?
The cost of your Sculptra® treatment will depend on the amount of product and number of treatments that you need to achieve your goals. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards as payment for services.
