Sculptra® is a facial filler (also known as a dermal filler) made up of poly-L-lactic acid that helps facilitate the replacement of lost collagen by adding facial volume to gaunt or hollowed-out areas. Dr. Sinha uses Sculptra to provide a gradual increase in thickness and facial volume for a more youthful look.
Sculptra is unique because it stimulates the skin and works with the body to make more of its natural support structure by acting as “fertilizer” for the collagen. Sculptra is bio-compatible, meaning it’s recognized as natural by the body, and bio-degradable (can be broken down by the body).
Sculptra can be used on the cheeks, midface, temples and around the eyes for age-defying results.
About Sculptra Fillers
The number of injections and amount of Sculptra needed vary among individuals and will be evaluated and discussed during the consultation. Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra does not bear immediate visible effects. Instead, Sculptra stimulates collagen production over a series of facial injections.
The effects of Sculptra are subtle, and injections are typically completed in 3 sessions about 4-6 weeks apart. After each treatment, the skin produces more of its own natural collagen. Results typically last about 2 years.
Mild swelling may occur at the injection site, but typically subsides within two days. As with all procedures, our staff is available for questions throughout the treatment process. The Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery offers a comprehensive consultation in order to provide education and tailored recommendations.
