At the Center of Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine, we use Sculptra Aesthetic for those looking to correct common concerns, such as smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and hollowed facial features. Our advanced aesthetic skills help provide only natural-looking results, while maintaining these results through a combination of neuromodulators, dermal fillers, daily skincare, and your lifestyle!
What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is the only FDA-approved dermal filler of its kind, made up of poly-L-lactic acid, which encourages collagen production in your skin, as well as restores subtle volume to your face. As we age, we lose facial fat, collagen and muscle, which results in wrinkles and a sunken appearance.
Replenish your features with Sculptra by restoring natural fullness and firmness; an ideal solution for patients who want subtle, but noticeable enhancement.
What to Expect with Sculptra Aesthetic
During your Sculptra appointment, your concerns will be addressed and a treatment plan will be made to achieve your desired results. Typically, we recommend three sessions over a course of a few months to provide a more refined, youthful appearance. You may experience a slight pinch from the Sculptra injections, but this is decreased by the use of topical anesthetic cream. Appointments last anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes.
Sculptra Aesthetic Results
Once your Sculptra appointment is complete, improvement is not usually noticeable right after treatment. However, Sculptra works in the deeper dermis to restore collagen structure, essential to reverse visible signs of aging. Results come gradually after four to six weeks, but are long-lasting, typically lasting up to two years without touch-up treatments, which is longer than traditional dermal fillers.
The Side Effects of Sculptra Aesthetic
You may experience some minor swelling from the procedure, and there is a chance of minor bruising around the injection site. Other commonly reported side effects include redness, tenderness, itching, and lumps. The best way to minimize the risk of side effects is to choose a skilled board-certified dermatologist in Chicago, IL.
