Collagen: Your Skin’s Structural Framework

Collagen is a crucial protein that serves as the building block of our skin’s structure. It provides strength, elasticity, and firmness to the skin, ensuring a smooth and youthful appearance. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume. Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable, works by stimulating natural collagen production, gradually restoring the skin’s integrity and vitality. Dr. Schalit offers this innovative injectable to restore a more youthful and natural look that can last for months or even years.

  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Improves skin texture and elasticity
  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive

  • Suitable for various facial areas

About Sculptra

Sculptra is a dermal filler composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible and biodegradable substance. Unlike traditional fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s own collagen production over time. When injected beneath the skin’s surface, it promotes the formation of new collagen fibers. This gradual process results in a subtle, natural-looking enhancement that can improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and restore lost volume, offering a more youthful appearance that can last years.

  • Arrive with a clean, makeup-free face on the treatment day.

The Sculptra Treatment

Dr. Schalit will assess your specific needs and goals and then cleanse and mark the treatment areas on your face. Using a fine needle, Sculptra is injected beneath the skin’s surface. Multiple injections may be required to achieve the desired results. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to an hour. You may experience mild discomfort, but topical numbing can be applied for your comfort. After the treatment, you can resume your daily activities.

Aftercare Guidelines:

  • Keep the treated area clean and avoid touching it.
  • Apply ice packs as needed to reduce swelling.
  • Avoid intense physical activity for a day or two.
  • Use sunblock and protect your skin from UV exposure.
  • Follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided.
  • Be patient as results develop gradually over weeks to months.
  • Stay hydrated and maintain a healthy lifestyle for optimal outcomes.
  • Schedule any recommended follow-up appointments for assessment and touch-ups.

The Recovery Process

After a Sculptra treatment, you may experience some swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects typically subside within a few days. There’s minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your daily activities almost immediately. The Sculptra results appear gradually over several weeks or months as your body produces new collagen fibers. You’ll notice a natural-looking improvement in skin texture, volume, and overall rejuvenation. The final results can last two years or more.
