Sculptra® is a unique injectable treatment that stimulates collagen production for long-lasting and stunningly natural results. Baldone Reina Dermatology offers this treatment to residents of Mandeville, the Northshore, Covington, and New Orleans, LA.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable treatment that is designed to stimulate collagen production to encourage natural improvements in skin volume and elasticity over time. The Sculptra® formula is composed of poly-L-lactic acid which is a collagen stimulator. After the Sculptra® formula is injected, the body will gradually break it down, replacing it with natural collagen. As a result, patients can enjoy a natural reduction in facial wrinkles and folds as well as an increase in facial volume. Sculptra® can help address the following cosmetic concerns:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Sagging jowls
- Loose skin around the eyes
- Lines and wrinkles on the forehead
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
If you elect to receive Sculptra® at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach for your Sculptra® treatment. Once these variables are evaluated, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is the Sculptra® Treatment Like?
Before your Sculptra® treatment, apply a topical anesthetic 30-45 minutes prior to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. A topical anesthetic is available for purchase at our office. Injections are then made in and around the desired treatment area. The number of injections required will depend on the area being treated as well as your desired results. A Sculptra® treatment takes less than 30 minutes, making it a great option for patients with a busy schedule.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Sculptra®?
After your Sculptra® treatment, you may experience swelling, bruising or sensitivity in the treatment area. These are common effects from treatment, and typically fade within a day or two. Despite these minor side effects, you will be able to return to work and all other normal activities immediately following your appointment. There is no downtime or recovery period involved after Sculptra®.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Sculptra®?
The results from Sculptra® will become visible as the formula stimulates natural collagen production in the body. Patients typically begin to notice results within a month, and will enjoy continued improvement in these results for up to six months after treatment. We typically recommend a series of three treatments for optimal results. The results from Sculptra® often last up to two years due to an increase in collagen.
