Sculptra® in Tampa Bay
Sculptra® is a unique injectable treatment that directly stimulates collagen production in the skin, producing incredibly long-lasting and natural-looking results. If you are located in Tampa, Clearwater or St. Petersburg, FL and the world, you can trust Eyelid Surgeons of Tampa Bay for your Sculptra® injections.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable treatment that targets the cause of aging, rather than its symptoms. Aging in the face occurs due to a loss of natural collagen – the material that keeps the skin youthful and voluminous. Sculptra® directly stimulates collagen production with a formula made of poly-L-lactic acid.
When injected into cheeks, temples, nasolabial folds, chin wrinkles, marionette lines and other areas of the face, the body will react by producing collagen. Over time, the body produces enough collagen to reverse the aging process and produce a more youthful appearance.
Am I A Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
If you would like to combat the signs of aging with natural collagen production, you may be a good candidate for Sculptra® treatments. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for Sculptra® is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer.
During your consultation, you and Dr. Mohadjer will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine if Sculptra® is a good fit for you. At this point, we will be able to help you schedule your treatment or find a suitable alternative.
What is the Sculptra® Treatment Like?
The Sculptra® treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic. This will help reduce any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Once the skin is numbed, the Sculptra® formula will be injected into the desired treatment area. The exact location and number of injections performed can vary depending on your treatment goals. However, the injection process takes only a few minutes, so the Sculptra® treatment is often completed in less than 30 minutes.
What is the Sculptra® Recovery Process Like?
Sculptra®, like most injectable treatments, requires practically no downtime or recovery period. You can expect some swelling, redness, and bruising in the treatment area initially. These effects will resolve on their own, typically within a few days. Despite these effects, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after their appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Sculptra®?
The results from Sculptra® can take a few months to fully develop, so you may not notice results right away. This is because it takes time for the body to produce enough collagen to make a noticeable difference in the skin.
For most patients, we recommend about three Sculptra® treatments, which are performed over the course of several months. We find that this produces optimal results. After having Sculptra® treatments, you can expect your results to last about two years or longer, thanks to the increase in collagen in the skin.
