Westlake Dermatology is the leading provider of Sculptra in Austin.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a facial injectable that is FDA approved for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial folds (i.e., smile lines), contour deficiencies, and other facial wrinkles.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra, also known as the “liquid facelift”, works by both filling in lines and wrinkles and by stimulating the body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue, thereby creating a fuller, more youthful appearance.
How is a Sculptra procedure performed?
During the Sculptra procedure, a patient is numbed with topical numbing cream and given a series of injections in the desired area. The material used in Sculptra®, poly-L-lactic acid – a synthetic version of the substance that is naturally produced by muscles during exercise, has been used in plastic and reconstructive surgery for more than 20 years.
Where can Sculptra be used?
Sculptra achieves excellent results in treating all parts of the face including the areas around the eyes and lips, between the mouth and nose, cheeks and neck. It adds volume to the cheeks, to folds around the chin, and to hollow areas around the eyes.
What kind of results should I expect from a Sculptra treatment?
Results are natural-looking and appear gradually over a few weeks’ time. Sculptra can last two years or more because it causes the body to stimulate its own collagen.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects of a Sculptra procedure are minimal, other than short-term swelling and redness.
