Those who would like to obtain a gradual improvement in the way they look may want to consider Sculptra®. This treatment is available at Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology for those who live in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, and Palm Beach County.
A unique new treatment that allows anti-aging effects to take place over a period of time is Sculptra®. This injectable filler allows patients to look younger while also helping them avoid appearing artificial in doing so.
What is Sculptra®?
This product is derived from poly-L-lactic acid; a substance that helps replace the collagen lost due to aging. It helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles in the face, especially those around the mouth area. A series of three or four injections is usually given over a period of a few months, each one about six weeks apart.
How is Sculptra® administered?
Before giving these injections, a dermatologist will determine which lines and wrinkles are going to be targeted. After that, a syringe filled with Sculptra® aesthetic will be prepared. The injection will be delivered to deep layers of skin tissue in precisely the right area, and then the patient is free to leave the office. No anesthesia is required, and each treatment session takes approximately 30 minutes.
When will results be noticed?
Some improvement may be noticed about a week after the first injection. Results will continue to improve after each treatment session. The improvement will be very gradual, slowly reversing the aging process in a discreet way so that others will notice the difference yet not realize an anti-aging procedure has been performed.
What areas can be treated with Sculptra® aesthetic?
This treatment has been approved by the FDA for treating facial hollows and deep folds. It should not be given in the eye or forehead area or injected into the lips.
How long will results last?
Most patients can expect the results to last about two years.
Who should not have Sculptra® aesthetic?
Patients who have previously had a reaction to any dermal filler should discuss this fact with a physician before having injections. Pregnant women should avoid this procedure, as unknown if this product has any pregnancy-related side effects. Those who have an active skin infection, open wounds or sores or broken skin should wait until these conditions clear up.
Many people don’t mind looking their age, as long as it appears they have aged well. Sculptra® aesthetic has been proven to be an effective way of doing just that.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
Skin rejuvenation treatments are considered to be elective, so most insurance providers won’t cover the costs. To help make Sculptra® affordable and accessible for everyone, Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology offers financing options via CareCredit®. We also accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards.
