Sculptra Facelift

Maybe you already know how amazing products like Botox can be for the aging face. You might have looked into facial dermal fillers‘ softening, plumping effects. However, have you heard about Sculptra? A filler like no other, those who lack facial structure and a youthful framework to build on benefit from the skillful application of this innovative cosmetic sculptor. Its impressive effects work to restore and rejuvenate a person’s appearance and longer-lasting naturally.

What is Sculptra?

This liquid consists of Poly-L-Lactic Acid-a a synthetic form of lactic acid- the same substance your body produces after exercise. Formulated as an injectable filler, it’s FDA-approved and doesn’t contain animal or human products. Sculptra fillers act as a bio-activator and powerful collagen trigger by stimulating the volumizing of your natural tissue. Over time, PLLA dissipates and disappears, and collagen fibers replace it. The process is slow, requiring 4-6 months to appreciate full results. However, the gradual nature of this process lends to its natural appearance.

Sculptra Facelift Case Study

A female in her late 50’s came in with concerns regarding her cheeks and nasolabial folds. She had lost volume in the areas of concern because of the natural aging process that caused her cheeks to droop and her nasolabial to fold. After carefully reviewing her options and keeping her medical history in mind, we decided to proceed with the Sculptra injectable fillers by using a blunt cannula allowing the needle to pass through, requiring only one poke. This specific procedure was done in under 45 minutes, including the numbing cream application process.

The procedure 

We used a blunt cannula to allow the needle to go through smoothly. You may feel a slight poke, almost like a pinch, during the injection of the Sculptra. To minimize bruising and swelling, the chiller was used after the procedure.

Sculptra Facelift Cost

The cost of this procedure varies depending on the number of vials needed. In this case, we used three vials of Sculptra; therefore, the price was $2,100.00 plus tax.

Sculptra Side effects

The main side effects of Sculptra fillers are bruising and swelling, which lasts up to 4-5 days but varies with each person, depending on their skin type.
