About Sculptra

Volume loss occurs naturally as we age, especially in the mid-face and cheeks, which tends to become hollow and flat over time. To remedy this, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Laverson uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that produces longer-lasting volume in the cheeks. In addition to improving the contour of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that run from the sides of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra encourages the natural collagen production in your body. This means that even after you stop receiving injections, your complexion should be brighter and healthier when compared to its condition before your treatments. Schedule a consultation at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic in San Diego, CA to learn more about the advantages of this unique injectable formula.

Ideal Candidates

Sculptra Aesthetic is ideal for patients who want to add volume throughout their mid-face without surgery or an implant. Candidates may have been born with flat cheeks, whereas others could have volume loss as a result of aging. Sculptra may also help to fill fine to severe facial wrinkles and lines, like chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra's formula works to increase the natural production of collagen in the skin, most Sculptra patients will see an improvement in the overall health and appearance of their complexion.

Procedure Technique

Following your consult to create your personalized treatment plan, you will receive your injections in one of our private procedure rooms. Your injector can use a local anesthetic or numbing cream prior to cleansing and marking the injection sites. As soon as you are ready, Sculptra is injected into the deeper skin layers at the chosen areas. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Steve Laverson recommends a series of four treatments to be scheduled at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic around three weeks apart.

What to Expect

Following your Sculptra treatment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. This should subside on its own after a few days. For faster healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injection sites. You should limit UV exposure after your treatment and always use sunscreen. Many patients will see visible improvements immediately after their appointment with their fullest results appearing after several months once the increased collagen production has further improved the health of your complexion. If Sculptra is performed in a series of treatments over a period of 3 – 4 months, results may be visible for as long as two years.
