Sculptra | Harrisburg PA
Do you feel like your face isn't as plump and full as it once was? Harrisburg Medspa injections like Sculptra could be what you're looking for.
Sculptra is a bio stimulator injection that stimulates the body to produce collagen.
Sculptra works by thickening the dermis of the skin, which smooths out the surface and adds volume to areas of the face that have lost volume over time. Sculptra® is a synthetic injectable material known as "poly-L-lactic acid." Poly-L-lactic acid is both biocompatible (ie, a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (ie, able to be broken down by the body). Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for many years in a variety of medically-related uses, including dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants, and other types of implants.
How does Sculptra® work?
Sculptra® is injected below the surface of the skin; it is injected directly into the area of fat loss. Skin thickness decreases as people age; Sculptra® works to restore a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions.
Are the results from Sculptra® immediate?
No. After your first treatment, it may appear that Sculptra® worked immediately; this is because of swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra®. After a few days, when the swelling goes down and your body absorbs the water, you may look as you did before your treatment. Sculptra® takes time to gradually correct the depression in your skin and restore volume.
How many treatments are required?
Patients with severe facial fat loss may need to visit our office 3 to 6 times for repeat treatment sessions. Sculptra is performed in a series of 1 to 6 treatments scheduled at least 4 weeks apart.
How long do treatment results last?
Treatment results will differ from person to person. In a clinical study, treatment results were shown to last for up to 2 years after the first treatment session, in most patients. Touch-up Sculptra® treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect.
Do injections of Sculptra® hurt?
As with any injection, injections with Sculptra® may hurt. Sculptra® is injected in small amounts using a very fine needle, and effort is taken to minimize the discomfort.
