Maybe you’ve noticed it too – that kids just look older today. Those in marketing call it “getting older, younger.” You might not like it, but the fact is, they can’t stay young forever. The flip side of this is that adults are looking younger as well, in large part to dermal fillers like Sculptra, Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. Injectable treatments certainly aren’t a fountain of youth, but in filling in the foundation that gives structure to your skin, the result is a more youthful looking appearance.

If you’re considering a facial filler like Sculptra, Sacramento’s Plastic Surgery Center can help. Call 916-569-0861 to schedule a consultation today.

Everything You Need To Know – And More – About Sculptra

Sculptra is a synthetic cosmetic filler approved by the Food & Drug Administration for injection beneath the skin for the restoration of the signs of lipoatrophy (fat loss) in the face. Biodegradable and compatible with your own body, the dermal filler has been used extensively outside of U.S. since 1999 to add volume to thinning cheeks, as well as to the areas around the eyes, nose and mouth. BOTOX® Cosmeticcan be combined with facial fillers to achieve even greater facial rejuvenation. Made of PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid), Sculptra does not require a skin test prior to treatment.

Your 15 to 30 minute procedure to diminish fine lines and furrows starts with an antiseptic cleansing of the area to be treated. Then, a small needle is used to inject a combination of Sculptra and sterilized water. As it’s likely that you will feel a stinging sensation, a topical anesthetic might be applied. Finally, the area is massaged to ensure even distribution of the facial filler. There is no downtime, so you are free to return to your daily routine immediately, although you are advised to limit exposure to ultraviolet light until any potential swelling or redness subsides. Although you can wear makeup following your injectable treatment, you should delay application for a few hours. While facial rejuvenation in Sacramento with a cosmetic filler such as Sculptra is not instantaneous, its benefits can be seen for as long as 2 years!
