How does Sculptra® work?
Sculptra® is made with poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that helps your body create new collagen. Collagen is a protein that naturally gives skin its structure and firmness. When injected into the deep layers of the skin, Sculptra® helps restore lost volume and plump up areas that have become sunken or hollow due to aging or weight loss.
How long will it take to see changes with Sculptra® injections, and how long do they last?
It usually takes a few sessions for results to show, as it can take time for your body to create new collagen. Results can last for up to 2 years with proper maintenance and continued injections to maintain these changes as long as possible.
What can I expect during my Sculptra® injection appointment?
First, Dr. Dimitrios Motakis can determine if you are a proper candidate for Sculptra® injections. If so, the treatment area will be marked, and a topical numbing cream may be applied. Then, using a tiny needle, Sculptra® will be injected into the targeted areas in a series of injections. The appointment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour.
