Using Sculptra treatment for collagen and elastin replacement

Why Sculptra?

Want more natural results? Don’t want the pillow-filler face look? United Medical and Aesthetics of Wilmington, North Carolina, stands apart by using biostimulators like Sculptra to restore the aging face more naturally. United Medical and Aesthetics believes giving you the right product is of most importance. If you’re trying to maintain results or turn back the time, Sculptra may be right for you. It can even be used on the body to give a lift and tighten appearance. 

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid, also known as a biostimulator. It slowly stimulates collagen production in the skin, gradually reducing wrinkles and giving your face a more youthful, defined look without the filler look. Sculptra replaces lost collagen and restores volume to areas like the jowls, lower face, mid-cheek region, and temples, slowly over three months allowing patients to rejuvenate more naturally. The most amazing benefit is glowing skin and improved texture! 

How long do the results of Sculptra injections last?

Results from this particular aesthetic injection can last from two to three years, with touch-up treatments every 6-12 months for optimal results. Results will vary depending on your skincare, solar protection habits, genetics, and age. Sculptra is approved by the FDA to treat mild to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth). It also benefits those who have lost facial volume due to aging or weight loss.

Are Sculptra injections painful?

By integrating a topical numbing cream, we can ensure that the administration of Sculptra injections is comfortable for you. As the anesthetic wears off, you may experience some sensitivity and soreness at the injection site for a day or two following your appointment.

Am I a good candidate for Sculptra injections?

If you are considering aesthetic injections, whether Sculptra or other dermal fillers, it is best to consult a provider with experience in selecting the right injectable for your needs. During a consultation appointment with Aleta Sloan of United Medical and Aesthetics in Wilmington, North Carolina, you can learn more about each injection treatment and which is suited for the goals you have in mind.
