Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler biostimulant that contains poly-L-lactic acid (a safe sugar polymer) and is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate collagen production for a more natural, youthful look. The filler can also increase the volume in the face and buttocks.
SpaMedica has some of the most experienced physician and nurse injectors, as well as the widest selection of dermal fillers in Canada. Each dermal filler injection treatment is customized to include the best possible combination of fillers that will give the most effective and long-lasting contour and shaping results. At the time of your consultation, your consult coordinator will review the best combination of dermal fillers to provide the results you are looking for.
SpaMedica is Canada’s largest, oldest, and most respected private cosmetic laser center. Why are there so many dermal fillers available? The answer is simple: using only one dermal filler may not give the best results. Superior soft tissue filler results are often only achieved by the customized combination of two or more of the dermal fillers products that work in different, yet synergistic and summative ways to achieve the best results, including:
● Bellafill (Artecoll)
Sculptra is used to reduce the signs of aging in both men and women. Ideal candidates:
● Want to restore the natural fullness to their faces.
● Want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
● Want to increase the volume and lift the buttocks.
● Don’t smoke.
● Have realistic expectations.
If you are not a good candidate for Sculptra, you can still undergo a treatment at SpaMedica. Review SpaMedica’s additional non-surgical treatment options to find one that fits your unique needs.
Sculptra filler doesn’t merely fill space, as most dermal fillers do. Sculptra stimulates your body’s collagen response (hence the term biostimulant), creating younger-looking skin by building up your own collagen.
Many people love Sculptra’s gradual and subtle results. The changes take effect for up to six months after the treatment.
The results from Sculptra injections last for two to three years. Then, patients can undergo another Sculptra injection if they wish.
Sculptra allows people to look younger without having a surgical procedure. This minimally invasive injection procedure is quick and painless that most people return to work the following day.
Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure with minor risks involved.
Some patients experience irritation at the injection site. This can include redness or bruising. The irritation normally goes away within a few hours, but in some cases, it can last for days or weeks.
Small bumps can very rarely form near the injection site. These bumps can be above or below the skin and might not form for several days following the injection. The bumps normally go away in several days.
While rare, it is possible to have an allergic reaction to Sculptra. Discuss your allergy history with Dr. Mulholland during your consultation.
In a very few patients, skin discoloration can develop immediately following the injections. This is due to bruising and goes away within days.
Dr. Mulholland has been in practice for more than two decades and is a leader in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Roskies is a Cleveland Clinic trained facial plastic surgeon and Dr. Bray has over 15 years of plastic surgery experience. The skillful SpaMedica Plastic surgeons injection technique reduces the risk of complications, including swelling and bruising. Dr. Mulholland along with his team of dedicated and experienced professionals, ensure your Sculptra treatments deliver optimal results.
The Sculptra Liquid Face Lift restores the face’s natural volume by stimulating collagen production. The dermal filler and biostimulant corrects wrinkles, furrows, and small lines and also shapes the face.
For those patients who do not want fat grafting, or do not have enough body fat, then the Sculptra Butt Lift is recommended for those who want fuller buttocks while eliminating sagging. The injection lifts the buttocks while increasing the volume.
Other dermal fillers, such as Revanesse, Juvederm, or Restylane can also be used to plump up skin, furrows and reduce wrinkles.
Dr. Mulholland and the SpaMedica Plastic Surgeons personally perform or oversee Sculptra injections at SpaMedica. Each person who administers injections has been trained by Dr. Mulholland. The doctor injects the Sculptra under the skin, in the soft tissue where the desired effect is being targeted. The injection is mixed with a local anesthetic to ensure the patient’s comfort. Laughing gas is also deployed maximizing the enjoyment or pain reduction of the injection.
Patients are pleased to learn that they don’t need to do much to prepare for Sculptra injections. Patients should:
Sculptra requires little downtime, with most people returning to work the following day. While there might be slight bruising or swelling, it usually goes away after 1 to 2 days. The results gradually appear over 4 to 6 months.
Patients can return home immediately following Sculptra injections. Most people are ready to go back to work and resume normal activities the following day. However, depending on the dosage administered some patients may require 1 to 2 days to recover.
Patients should avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for the first 24 hours. For the first week, patients should massage the treatment area five times a day for five minutes at a time. They should also apply ice for the first week.
Botox injection, other dermal fillers and radiofrequency resurfacing (Morpheus8) and/or Fractional resurfacing and tightening (Forma) work well in combination with Sculptra.
It’s normal to have questions before undergoing any procedure. Go over the frequently asked questions and bring additional questions with you to your consultation.
Sculptra injections are not painful. With the addition of lidocaine local anesthesia, the area numbs as you go. Laughing gas is also used. Some patients experience mild discomfort that is alleviated by applying ice to the injection site.
